But as Sharon Profis discovered after a visit to the doctor, these optical monitors may need more R&D. There may be a problem with your fitness tracker: it could be misreporting your pulse.

You can find the results below, but it seems the optical sensing technology used in many of today’s new, wrist-based mobile heart rate monitors is sometimes inaccurate. That’s in comparison to time-tested EKG machines (or the heart rate monitors that emulate them), which sense the electrical impulses that trigger your heartbeats.
