Activity Devices / Med ID Bracelets using QR Code

Good day Club,

I'm new to the forum and battery power, but thrilled to have stumbled upon it and become a member.

Today's question concerns Fitness Activity Devices and Med ID Bracelets utilizing QR Code Scanning Technology. Has anyone had interference issues with either?

I'm considering a MyID™ Medical Bracelet by ENDEVR and the Surge Fitness Super Watch by Fitbit.

What I'm curious about is whether any of the following features could pose a problem with function of my CRT-D:

- PurePulse™ Heart Rate offers continuous, automatic and strap-free heart rate monitoring
- Built-in GPS tracks real-time stats such as time, pace, distance and elevation climbed
- Reads Heart Rate 24/7
- Syncs wirelessly up to 20 feet away with Bluetooth 4.0 to your smartphone, tablet or computer
- Lets you stay connected when your phone is nearby with text and call notifications
- Barcode scanner, calorie estimator, meal shortcuts and expanded food database lets you log meals and snacks

Kind thanks,

Thank you for the prompt response!

While my electronic scale may in fact be on the fritz, it never occurred to me (new as I am) that my CRT-D may be the reason the numbers take a while to settle.

Looking forward to posting more questions and getting the group's insights.

Best regards!

I would also like to know if the fitbit surge watch is safe to use. For some reason I cannot view the first comment.
Do we have an answer?

I can't read the answer about the fitbit surge. I would like to know if it would interfere with my pacemaker.

Fitbit: A-ok

Not sure what happened to that first comment, but a group member said it wasn't a problem, and I certainly haven't experienced any issues. So...strap the ol' fitbit on and get after those steps!

Check with doc/manufacturer first

Last comment a little too spirited perhaps. While I took this group member's comment about the fitbit and other such toys as the final word, I'd encourage you to: "Always check with your doctor and or manufacturer before using any device"…you know, just to be 100% certain.

You know you're wired when...

Friends call you the bionic man.

I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
