Wrist-ECG

By placing your finger on a button, you get readings of the electrical signal from the heart, unlocking advanced insights into your overall wellbeing.

What is an electrocardiogram (ECG)?

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a graphical representation of the heart’s electrical activity that provides vital information about your heart and its condition.

What does an ECG measure?

With every heartbeat, an electrical impulse travels through the heart, prompting its contraction and facilitating blood circulation.

An ECG records these electrical signals and provides a graphical representation to show how fast the heart is beating, the rhythm of the heart beats (steady or irregular), and the strength and timing of the electrical impulses as they move through the different parts of the heart. More specifically, the different waves of the ECG signal represent the sequence of depolarisation and repolarisation of the heart muscle’s atriums and ventricles.

How to record an ECG

An electrocardiogram is recorded by placing ten small patches, called electrodes, on the patient's skin, typically on the chest, arms, and legs. The electrodes are connected to an ECG machine that detects and amplifies the electrical impulses generated by the heart.

Outside the medical setting, the latest generation of wearables, like Polar watches equipped with Wrist-ECG and Elixir™ biosensing technology, can record an ECG at rest using just two electrodes placed on the back and the buttons of the device. All you need to do is place a finger on a button for 30 seconds.

Wrist ECG

Take an ECG with your Polar Watch

You can read the electric signals of your heart using the wrist ECG sensor on a Polar Watch equipped with Wrist-ECG and Elixir™ biosensing technologies. The test records the ECG signal at rest and valuable metrics such as average heart rate, heart rate variability, and the intervals between successive heartbeats (also called RR intervals).

With the Polar Flow app, you can view your history of ECG results and monitor trends, see how your heart responds to exercise, and analyse your physical condition and recovery. You can also export the ECG test results to a PDF file that you can share with your coach.

Pro-level recovery monitoring

The recordings of your heartbeat and heart rate variability using Wrist-ECG enable recovery monitoring features without additional devices, such as a heart rate chest strap. For example, you can use Wrist-ECG to take an orthostatic test, which provides important insights into how your body recovers from exercise.

Important: The Wrist-ECG sensor measurement feature is not intended for any medical use, diagnosis or treatment (including self-diagnosis or consultation with a doctor) and the data should not be used for any medical purposes.

Wrist-ECG and sports performance

The metrics provided by Wrist-ECG measurements allow you to monitor how your physical condition develops over time. For example, an increased heart rate variability—the fluctuation in the time intervals between consecutive heartbeats—typically indicates improved cardiovascular fitness and endurance. It is also a key indicator of stress and recovery.

The science behind Wrist-ECG

Wrist-ECG safely records the resting ECG signal in just 30 seconds. To get an accurate measurement, wear the device snugly on your wrist, keep still, and place your other hand's finger firmly on the button during the test.

Optical Heart Rate

OHR enables heart rate monitoring from the wrist, providing real-time data, and insight on the heart's activity during sports, sleep, and everything between.

Blood Oxygen Level

SpO2 is a non-invasive measurement of the oxygen saturation in red blood cells to indicate the effectiveness of the body’s ability to transport oxygen. It’s especially useful for high-intensity–or high-altitude–workouts.

Skin Temperature

Nightly skin temperature monitors fluctuations in core body temperature during sleep to provide insights on thermoregulation and sleep quality.

Wrist-ECG

Electrocardiogram monitoring from the wrist provides valuable insights into the heart's electrical activity and rhythm for a better understanding of cardiovascular health and performance.
