Remote app-based monitoring of atrial fibrillation (AF) has been gaining ground in recent years. Photoplethysmography (PPG)-based devices have been providing data on regularity, frequency, and rate and can aid physicians to analyse symptom/rhythm correlation. App-based monitoring can be both useful for screening of older and younger patients. Finally, the Telecheck-AF study showed how collected app-based data could aid AF management. The European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) has published a practical guide on ‘How to use digital devices to detect and manage arrhythmias’ during their annual meeting [1]. Prof. Dominik Linz (Maastricht University Medical Center, the Netherlands) reviewed the current state of the art regarding app-based monitoring of AF [2]. Many different wearable devices have been developed in recent years to monitor AF remotely: earlobe sensors, watches, chest belts, armbands, and finger bands. The devi...
