Hi everyone. I have only had two confirmed occurrences of A. Fib, in May and July last year. I own a Kardia device, but rarely use it. If I feel unwell, I then use it but so far it has only shown normal heart activity since last July when I got good readings of the AF.
I received a Fitbit Charge2 as a Christmas present, and wear it constantly. It has helped me be aware of my activity levels and sleep patterns, but I'm wondering what it would show if I was in A.Fib.? I know that the pulse monitor is two green LEDs and a tiny camera that pick up the rhythm of the 'blushes' when the capillaries expand under the influence of the pulse, but I wonder what effect I might see if I was in AF and there was no rhythm for it to average, and the rate was outside the expected normal. I suspect that it would simply stop showing heart rate, but might it just show the last reading it had, and wait to see a new rhythm?
If anyone has a similar device, and can confirm what it does when AF strikes, that would be very helpful! Thanks.
