How does it measure an electrocardiogram (ECG)?

Move ECG includes three electrodes to ensure measurement accuracy. Two electrodes are discreetly integrated inside the main body of the watch, and the third electrode is in the stainless steel bezel of the watch. Users simply need to touch both sides of the bezel to start recording ECG anytime and anywhere.

Is it a medically approved measurement?

Move ECG has been developed with medical experts and is currently under review to be FDA/CE cleared.

What is the benefit of having an ECG on the wrist?

Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) is responsible for 30% of strokes. 90% of them could be avoided if AFib is detected at an early stage. AFib is underdiagnosed because explicit Atrial Fibrillation episode not necessary occurs at the doctor’s office. When a user feels symptoms such as palpitation, users can place his hand on his watch and in 30 seconds Move ECG will record an electrocardiogram by detecting your cardiac electrical signals. After the measurement, Move ECG vibrates to notify users that the reading is complete. It then syncs automatically with the Health Mate app, where it displays if the heart is beating in a normal pattern or whether there are signs of AFib.

How can I see the results?

After 30 seconds of measurement, Move ECG vibrates to notify users that the reading is complete. It then syncs automatically with the Health Mate app, where it displays if the heart is beating in a normal pattern or whether there are signs of AFib. Additionally, users can find a detailed graph in Health Mate of their long-term heart rate trends and ECG records.

How can I share my results or act on it?

Data collected by Move ECG and visualized in Health Mate can easily be shared with a doctor or healthcare professional, which can help assist with early diagnosis and prevention.
