I'm 4 weeks post successful flutter ablation.
Resting HR via old fashioned two finger wrist check and also using Kardia app report a normal sinus rhythm with a rate of average of approx 58 bpm.
However using my Polar M400 HRM coupled with a H7 chest strap the readings rarely seem to match even at rest. When exercising i cannot really rely on what the monitor is reporting.
I have changed the battery in the chest strap. I have used a monitor for a number of years, so know about how it needs to be attached and moistened.
The thing is these odd reports only seem have occurred since the flutter ablation. I wonder how the chest strap measures the pulse. I know that Polar state that incorrect readings may be seen in some people with arrhythmias, but i was getting good readings before my flutter ablation.
Has anyone else experienced similar? I wonder if a different monitor may provide cleaner results ie optical wrist measurement found in the Apple watch as an example
