The device will alert the user to abnormal heart rhythms, tachycardia or bradycardia.
Please note that elite athletes will have lower heart rates than the general population. If you do a lot of exercise, particularly cardiovascular, a diagnosis of bradycardia from the device should not be cause for alarm.
This is a simple home-use ECG monitoring device, which is easily operated by holding the device between your hands, or placing the electrodes against an ankle or your chest. It is safe to use with pacing devices. It is meant as a quick-check device only, for patients undergoing transient symptoms, monitoring their condition with a health professional, or as an early warning device for healthy individuals. It may also be used as an alternative to a fingertip pulse oximeter for monitoring heart rate data for athletes.
Some typical ECG patterns are shown below:
1.77" Colour TFT LCD screen.
One-touch operation; quick and easy operation
Rechargeable lithium battery can record up to 500 measurements between charges.
Bluetooth data transmission to save history permanently onto other devices.

I'm allergic to some heart medications, so I use this to monitor my heart rateReview by Veronica (Posted on July 20, 2016)
I have purchased it for personal use, have Heart Disease but have allergies to some Heart medication so need to monitor myself and results go to doctor.
I had one of these devices until my puppy ate it the day I ordered this one, I will make sure she doesn't get this one lol.
The only thing I cannot find is a pulse monitor that will work when you are sleeping and records the results so you can download them to computer, if you know of this type of device I would have an interest.
Bluetooth is really usefulReview by Len (Posted on June 21, 2016)
I bought it for personal reasons after sometimes experiencing awful chest pains for 30mins onwards. This is going to either give me that motivation to get properly checked at hospital or put my mind at rest as I've been to hospital before and got the all clear (though I had no pain at the time). The fact it is Bluetooth is amazing so I could print up if I'm worried and off to hospital.
I would definitely recommend this to othersReview by Maria (Posted on May 22, 2016)
I bought it for health reasons, and I am extremely happy with it as it picked up a problem I was having (tachycardia & missed heart beats) which the doctors kept missing. I would definitely recommend this to others and when I showed it to my doctor he too was impressed with it.
