The WIWE device affords me a valuable sanity check when I become ‘bullish’ and stubborn regarding my heart issues.
"One effective means to assess if the critical pump in the human body is working well is electrocardiography (aka ECG or EKG). In this test, the electrical changes caused by the muscle activity in each heartbeat is recorded by external sensors, and compared with known good and bad patterns to reveal possible issues."
About a year ago Apple made headlines when the Apple Watch became the first ECG reading wearable to get FDA-clearance. It’s part of a trend for health tracking tech – that now includes this credit-card sized WiWe portable ECG monitor – that’s attempting to make it easier than ever to keep track of your heart health.
The WIWE provides a clinical-grade ECG to check for arrhythmia or stroke as well as check for heart rate after exertion to check fitness levels.
While there is no shortage of heart rate training chest straps, ECG monitors have not been available to amateur fitness enthusiasts until recently. Now there is a healthy range of devices which are capable of dishing up a pulse waveform similar to what you’d get from a professional electrocardiogram.
