How to record an ECG
To record an ECG, sit and rest, press the digital crown, scroll in the menu to find the ECG option, press again, then place your fingers on the front electrode for 30 seconds.
Your smartphone can display the live signal during the record, and will keep all measurements to view and share at any time.

How it works
ScanWatch is equipped with three electrodes: two are on the back of the case and the other is the metal ring around the watchface.
When you place your finger on the ring, it closes a loop that allows the watch to measure your heart's electrical activity. This method is called a one-lead electrocardiogram.

Why it matters
An ECG is the best way to detect atrial fibrillation (AFib), a highly prevalent heart arrhythmia. It is a very serious condition that often goes undiagnosed because it can show no symptoms and/or not be present during doctor’s visits because the episodes can be intermittent.
In the USA, 1 out of 4 people will develop Afib.
