A low (or even negative) ICC value may also due to lack of variability among the subjects. Personally I will compute the 95% limits of agreement which represents how far a difference between any two repeated measurements from a single subject can be.
If you need further reference, the paper by White and van den Broek (2004) contrasted a number of methods for assessing reliability.
