12 lead ECG
electrophysiological study


Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. This study is to assess the heart rhythm device accuracy of five cardiac wearable devices (Apple Watch, Kardia Mobile/Kardia Mobile 6L, Fitbit Sense, Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and Withings Scanwatch, Withings SA, Model Number: HWA09) and its detection algorithms in identifying AF compared to a nearly simultaneously acquired physician-interpreted 12-lead ECG in a real world cohort of patients.
