Pacemaker and a Fitbit

I will be getting a two lead Pacemaker in the next week or two and have a couple questions. #1-I wear a Fitbit Charge 2 (on left arm) will this cause any problems. #-2 The band is a metal band with a small magnet use to secure the band, will this cause a problem? Thanks in advance for your help.

You can use your fitbit, no issues. It's possible the heart rate function on it may not be accurate, sometimes the pacer confuses it. But it's always safe.

I have found the models with the chest strap are more accurate for us than the wrist only models.  Let us know how yours works out.
