You received an inconclusive recording
An inconclusive result means the recording can’t be classified. This can happen for many reasons:
Heart rhythm is low
The heart rate obtained cannot be classified as a recording. To obtain a full analysis, the heart rate must be above 50 bpm during the recording.
Heart rhythm is high
The recording does not appear to show any signs of atrial fibrillation, but complete diagnosis is not possible for a heart rate above 100 bpm. To obtain a full analysis, the heart rate must be below 100 bpm during the recording.
Signal is too noisy
There is too much interference for the recording to be classified. Place your arm on a table or on your thigh, relax, don’t talk, and don’t move during the recording. Refer to the help section to know the right gestures to be adopted and those to be avoided.
- Rest your arms on a table during the ECG recording. Try to relax and not move too much.
- Make sure your Move ECG is not loose on your wrist. The band should be snug and the back of the device needs to be touching your wrist.
- Try to follow the gestures below to improve your ECG recording.
- Move away from any electronics that are plugged into an outlet to avoid electrical interference.
Important: If you think you may be having a heart attack (myocardial infarction) or are facing a medical emergency, call the emergency services.
The ECG waveforms appear upside down
Move ECG orientation may be set to the wrong wrist in the Withings App. To update it, go to Devices > Move ECG > Wrist used.
