Understanding Possible Results

Sinus Rhythm: This result indicates that your heart is beating in normal rhythm with a heart rate between 50 – 100 beats per minute (BPM).⁵
Atrial Fibrillation: This result indicates that your heart was beating with an irregular rhythm. If you get this result, you should follow up with your doctor.
Inconclusive: This result indicates that your heart was beating in a rhythm that could not be classified. If you get this result repeatedly, you should see a doctor.



You can get an inconclusive result if –

• Your heart rhythm was Atrial Fibrillation but heart rate was less than 50 BPM or greater than 120 BPM.
• Your heart rhythm was neither Sinus Rhythm nor Atrial Fibrillation.
• Your heart rate was less than 50 BPM or greater than 100 BPM and rhythm was not Atrial Fibrillation.⁶

Poor Recording: This result indicates the ECG recording could not be analyzed. This usually happens if there is noise in the ECG recording which may occur due to motion during the recording or if the watch did not have enough skin contact with your wrist or finger. It could also be a response to dehydration, fever, infection or other conditions including Atrial Fibrillation or other arrhythmia.
