This paper presents a low cost, low power and wireless wearable solution for real-time analysis and monitoring of cardiac activity co-related with physical activity. Utilizing an analogue filter chain for signal conditioning, the device performs continuous measurement of the Electrocardiogram. The wearable also includes an accelerometer enabling it to detect the current physical activity along with body orientation. The device communicates wirelessly, using Bluetooth Smart /Bluetooth Low
