Hi! It's an interesting question that you ask and I suppose I'd question why you want an ECG monitor? If you're interested in monitoring your heart rate you'd do much better by having a wrist based HR monitor which will allow you to collect data and down load it to a computer, print out changes, monitor resting HR and any major peaks or troughs. If you need specific ECG analysis for a medical condition you'd do much better getting a proper 12 lead trace done which would be done in a medical establishment with trained clinician to have any viability. If you’ve got issues with feeling like you’ve got palpitations and haven’t sought medical diagnosis I’d do that straight away. Can’t think why you’d want to invest in something that will only make you worry when you can get a medical diagnosis and treatment if needed.
