«Continuous heart health monitoring is infinitely more useful than the single readings typically generated during a visit to a doctor’s office. Continuous monitoring for longer durations lessens the chance of missing heart rhythm problems. We’ve written about continuous ECG monitoring devices such as the Zio Patch since 2016. I’ve used a Zio Patch twice, for 3 days and for the device’s maximum 14-day duration. Current wearable patch devices typically collect a single type of measurement for a limited time.»
