What’s an ECG?

An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a test that measures the electrical activity of your heart.

 

What does the Fitbit ECG app do?

The app brings ECG technology to your wrist so you can record your heart’s rhythm when it’s convenient for you.

 

How does it work?

There are sensors in the frame and biosensor core of your Sense smartwatch—open the Fitbit ECG app and place your fingers on the corners for it to record the signals from your heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why is assessing for AFib important?

During AFib, the upper chambers of the heart contract irregularly, increasing the risk of heart attack, blood clots, stroke and other heart conditions.

AFib can be difficult to detect, but the Fitbit ECG app lets you check in on your heart rhythm right from your wrist—so you have a better chance of spotting and treating it. This assessment can’t diagnose AFib on its own, but your results can help you have a better conversation with your doctor.

Your heart rhythm appears normal. It doesn’t show signs of atrial fibrillation (AFib), an irregular heart rhythm.

 

Atrial Fibrillation

Your heart rhythm shows signs of atrial fibrillation (AFib), an irregular heart rhythm.

 

 

 

 

Inconclusive

If your heart rate is over 120 bpm or under 50 bpm, the Fitbit ECG app can’t assess your heart rhythm. You might also get an inconclusive result for other reasons, like moving too much while taking the assessment or incorrect finger placement.
