The heart rate which you recorded was within normal limits.
The heart rate varies with different activity from 60 to 100 plus. An athlete can have low heart rate as low as 60. A sleeping person will have a low heart rate. when a person is involved in an active work heart rate suddenly goes up more than 100. There will be variation in the different time of the day also.(diurnal variation).
So, don't worry about your reading of 82/84.

Thanks for posting your query.
Your heart rate is considered as normal.
Heart rate between 60-100 bpm is considered as normal.
There may be increase in heart rate in any sort of anxiety as you were conscious regarding your heart rate.
Still you should go for electrocardiogram (ECG) to rule out any irregularity in heart rate and for better clarification.
Avoid taking excessive tea, coffee, chocolates as these edibles may cause rise in heart rate.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
