Can you please try this pseudo code:

bool public verifyWithTolerance(timeStamp) 
    lowerEnd = 500 miliseconds;
    higherEnd = 1000 miliseconds;
    if (timeStamp > 500 && timeStamp < 1000)
        return True;
    else {return False;}


You can use AssertJ which has the expected assertion:

assertThat(duration).isCloseTo(expectedDuration, offset(10));
