New wearable heart monitoring device connects with users' phones

A new Android app and wearable device made in Finland can measure heart rate and variability, a duo that can detect an irregular heartbeat or stress.

Branded Beat2Phone, the device measures ECG signals at a high sampling rate allowing it to identify heart beats and count intervals between them. The results are then sent to the user’s phone.

The device, which is about the size of a thumb, can be strapped to the user’s abdomen. The device is now under review by the FDA.
