That. You'd need multiple readings at all different points to have an accurate measure. Also, Cuff size has a lot to do with accuracy. If you have decent sized arms, the standard cuff won't be accurate.

If you chill for a few minutes and take it again, you will get different numbers every time.

123/78 is pretty cool

The diastolic number (the lower) is the one you need to pay attention to.

The systolic will flucuate quite a bit in a few moments time.
