(Un)fortunately, I'm a new member to the club...both Pacemaker Club (fortunate) and device owner (unfortunate in a way). I recently had a Biotronik pacemaker/ICD implanted and NOW have relatively minor heart pacing and blood pressure issues I've never experienced. Hopefully, these will be corrected and it's not a device issue or my heart not accepting the device.
As a former long-distance cyclist, I've always monitored my heart rate. Most of these monitors are rather basic but functional. Chest monitors seem to be the most accurate. I need a monitor to limit exertion during exercise (doctor orders) and log some of these uncharacteristic events.
Three questions regarding monitors:
1. Does anyone have experience with a reliable monitor that is safe with pacemaker/ICD?
2. I just learned of a more advanced monitor by QardioCore (which is not available in the USA pending FDA approval). Qardio markets this as Wireless ECG monitor and cardio tracker.
3. Any thoughts on the new Kardia Mobile 6L which supposedly provides a 6-lead EKG
