Bittium Faros 180

Bittum Faros 180

The Faros sensor is a portable, external, waterproof ECG device and a wireless measurement tool for ECG and R-R-Interval measurements. While our eSense Pulse is made for short term HRV measurements, the Faros 180 is perfectly suited for long term measurements. We also created a comparison of both devices.

Bittum Faros 180

The Faros is super lightweight (20 gram) and really small in size. It can perfectly be used for long term measurements at the chest without any disturbance.

Wearing can be made easy by our 24 h long term electrodes. There are other options available as well. The delivery includes an electrode cable with snap button connector, fitting any standard disposable ECG gel electrode. Electrodes are not included, please order therefore our 24 h long term electrodes in addition.


More Information

In order to treat a cardiac abnormality, it's necessary to detect it first. A reliable device with a clear and accurate ECG signal is required for this. There are some conditions that can just be just found when the ECG is measured for multiple days (for example some arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation). It's more likely to detect these events when your device can gather more data. This is what the Faros 180 is made for.

The Bittium Faros™ series offers waterproof ECG devices. The particularly innovative 4-in-1 technology makes it possible to offer a very high EKG signal quality in a light, comfortable, waterproof, smooth finish.

A heart disorder must be identified before it can be treated. A reliable device with a precise and accurate ECG signal is required, regardless of whether it is an asymptomatic, paroxysmal or postoperative abnormality, . To detect some cardiac arrhythmias (e.g. atrial fibrillation) the ECG often has to be measured over several days. It's more likely to recognize these events the more data your device can collect.



Bittium Faros sensors are not just precise, they are also very easy to use and comfortable to wear. Thanks to the patented mounting options you can choose the optimal setup for you. Measure ECG discreetly under your clothes with our 24 hours long-term EDA electrodes or with the Bittium FastFix™ wearable patch electrode (available only on demand in high numbers, not on stock). Bittium Faros ECG devices can also be used as wireless ECG transmitters with Bluetooth connectivity.



Bittium Faros waterproof ECG devices are medical CE and FDA 510(k) cleared class IIa medical devices.

Comparison eSense Pulse and Bittium Faros 180

For short-term measurements we also have the eSense Pulse in our assortment. We have done a 10-minutes measurment with both devices for comparison. You see a high precision and consistency of the data collected in parallel on a person. The graphs are so exactly on top of each other that the graph below in blue is barely visible:
