Personal ECG Monitors

I am often asked if the FITNESS monitors I sell and review can be used by customers with underlying heart conditions.

My answer is always no, they are intended for use by healthy adults with no known heart problems unless prescribed to do so by a medical professional.

I would not recommend using any of the FITNESS watches reviewed on this site to be used for monitoring potentially life threatening health issues.

In the first instance please ALWAYS consult with your GP or medical professional if you have any concerns regarding cardiac health.

This is just a small selection of ECG monitors designed specifically for medically focused heart rate monitoring at home. This range of portable ECG monitors start at about £100 and go up to approx  £400+. I have not personally used any of them and request that you ensure the device meets your requirements and expectations before purchasing.

Looking for a Blood Pressure Monitor

Something we get asked about every day is whether these devices can also measure blood pressure. No, they can't.

These ECG devices monitor the electrical activity around the heart. A blood pressure monitor measures the diastolic and systolic blood pressure while the heart pumps and rests.

We have a selection of some of the most popular blood pressure monitors here

PLEASE DO NOT purchase any of these ECG devices if you have a pace maker fitted unless advised by your GP.
