In brief: Not necessarily

Wrist pulses may or may not correlate with blood pressure.
How a pulse feels to the fingers is affected by many factors. Blood pressure is more accurately measured on the upper arm. Wrist BP monitors are helpful but they really need to be verified with more accurate means.
