This is considered as a life-saving feature which will detect atrial fibrillation (AFib) or inconclusive with your heart.
This feature is compared with the EKG taken at a doctor and stacks up close enough. As it is only collecting this information from your wrist it is not very accurate as compared to the EKG in identifying the location of that rhythm.
