Fitbit heart rate

I use my Fitbit primarily to monitor my heart rate which is set at 60 BPM.   It is very reassuring to check the graph on the Fitbit app  on my phone in the morning  and confirm that my heart rate graph shows a straight line at 60  BPM.                 This will be extremely useful when my pacemaker is in the replacement mode AKA end of life mode when it locks in at 65 BPM.

nope but the fitbit might not properly read your rate...

You know you're wired when...

You can take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’.

At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
