The Apple Watch ECG detected something strange about my heart rhythm

From CNET

When I first started testing out the new EKG feature on the Apple Watch Series 4 — available Thursday via the free Watch OS 5.1.2 software upgrade — the last thing I expected was to find something abnormal with my heart rhythm. But that’s exactly what happened when I was cross-referencing the Watch’s readings with medical-grade EKG equipment at the doctor’s office.

“We see on your Apple Watch the same early heartbeat that we see on the EKG,” said Dr. Gregory Marcus, professor of medicine and a cardiac electrophysiologist at UCSF Medical Center as I sat on the hospital bed with cables attached to my body and an Apple Watch Series 4 on my wrist.

The results from the Apple Watch EKG showed the same irregular beat as the doctor’s EKG.
