Check out the Apple Watch. My cardiologist had one and showed me the ecg trace from it. To me it looked great, but he said it was very good as well. If I had heart issues, I would look closely at it as the Med process might be more tedious. At this point, the heart seems to be working well enough. It’s just the rest of the body that is slowing down. Good luck with it.

Hi George! The Apple Watch ECG app is not available in Oz because our equivalent of the FDA has not approved it. The wheels of the TGA grind slowly, so don't expect any action for a couple of years.

I will do the ECG stress test, sometime soon hopefully, but our state champs are this weekend, and then we're booked into accommodation in Margs for a week.

I thought a friend of mine was using the Apple watch for ECG a couple of years ago but I think that was an older version with something extra from here https://store.alivecor.com/
I don't think they sell the same the same thing he was using anymore, probably because the new watch has it built in.

I have a handheld ECG somewhere that you could borrow if I can find it and it still works but it isn't very useful for exercise induced problems. You have to be very still and relaxed to get a good signal.
