Description

Here's everything you need to know about the new Garmin ECG functionality that Garmin has begun launching today on their smartwatches. From which devices to setup to other requirements, dive in for the quick tour.

As of today, Garmin has released ECG functionality for the Venu 2 Plus watch, for users in the United States. This is Garmin’s first watch to have ECG, following both clinical trials, and subsequent FDA approval which they were granted last week (more on all that down below). The on-watch ECG functionality will detect and classify atrial fibrillation (aka AFib), and a normal sinus rhythm.

On your Venu 2 Plus you can open the ECG app at any time, touch the bezel with your other wrists fingers, and then wait about 30 seconds for the ECG to complete. After which you’ll get your results as well as the ability to save/export the report via the app, such as to send the PDF to a doctor.

Garmin is essentially the last major smartwatch maker to join the ECG fray. This follows Apple, Samsung, Fitbit, and others who have received FDA approval for their ECG app implementations. For the most part though, what you see on these devices is all very similar, largely owing to the process by which these devices are certified. Still, there are some differences, such as Apple have irregular rhythm notifications (albeit non-continual), where Garmin does not. Still, for those needing to do quick spot checks for ECG, this is a huge step forward.
