Hi @iowafemale. I understand your interest in having cleaner tracing with your device. I found this earlier discussion on Samsung wearable devices so you will notice I have moved your question here to continue to explore the capabilities of your device with help from @johnbishop who is quite tech savvy.

In the meantime, I wanted to share the following article on "How useful is the smartwatch ECG?": https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1050173819301495

One thing to note is that wearable devices are typically only an indicator of possible issues and would recommend always to follow up with a doctor if you have questions on a reading.

Given that your cardiologist has concerns, what were his/her recommendations with regard to the watch and app?

I am going to discuss it with him at my appointment at the end of the week. He isn't satisfied with the amount of artifact he messaged me. I can't seem to get a reading without one. He has sent me to his office to get an EKG using the Kardia system, but he suggested the watch and app. So far, it's been less than successful. A colleague of his used the Apple watch. We had android phones so I have the Samsung watch. We will see later this week.
