This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in January of 2019. The ability to keep tabs on your ticker is extremely useful, especially if you have a history of heart complications. These portable EKG monitors allow you to track cardiac activity on the go without a costly hospital visit. But while undoubtedly convenient, they're not a replacement for an actual doctor, so be sure to always confer with yours and share any results that concern you. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best portable ekg monitor on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 14, 2019:

There were two primary considerations in making these rankings: how accurate the results were, and how easy those results were to understand. It should be noted that none of these devices will be as accurate as a dedicated machine operated by a trained clinician, but they should be able to give you reasonable ballpark figures. Any selection that required a paid subscription to access your readings, such as the Alivecor KardiaMobile, was penalized as a result.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
