- Samsung Inconclusive ECGs when you have a low heart rate aren't typically a cause for concern if there's a simple explanation, like if you're sleeping, frequently exercising, or unusually relaxed.
- If you're not able to find a simple explanation for your heart rate being lower than normal, though, it can be a sign of an infection or abnormal heart rhythm.
- If you're experiencing symptoms with your Inconclusive Samsung ECGs, contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible to rule out underlying heart conditions.

The Inconclusive Samsung ECG result is one of the most confusing experiences when monitoring your heart health, especially because it doesn't tell you the reason. You can have a High Heart Rate Samsung ECG or a Low Heart Rate Samsung ECG or an abnormal heart rhythm that your Samsung ECG is unable to interpret. In your frustration, you might be wondering, "What does Inconclusive mean on my Samsung ECG?" Or you might be thinking, "Why does my Samsung ECG keep saying Inconclusive?" In this guide, we'll help answer these questions, as well as provide clarity on when a Samsung Inconclusive ECG may be a cause for concern from a low heart rate. Let's dive in.
What Does Low Heart Rate Mean on My Samsung ECG?
Your Samsung ECG provides the following interpretations: Normal Sinus Rhythm, Atrial Fibrillation, or Inconclusive. If your heart rate is below 50 beats-per-minute (bpm), your Samsung Watch isn't able to interpret your ECG as Normal Sinus Rhythm or Atrial Fibrillation, so it labels your ECG as Inconclusive. If your heart rate (HR) is above 100 bpm, or if your heart rate is above 120 bpm and your Samsung Watch sees signs of Afib, it also labels your ECG as Inconclusive. If you're getting Inconclusive ECGs on your Samsung Watch from a low Samsung HR, it could be because of:
- Medication that slows your heart down slightly.
- Being more relaxed than normal.
- Being in great physical shape. A lower-than-normal heart rate is often expected in athletes.
- Sleep, which naturally lowers your heart rate. 😴
Is Low Heart Rate a Cause for Concern?
If your Samsung ECG app shows Inconclusive for a heart rate between 40 bpm and 50 bpm, there's usually no cause for concern. However, an Inconclusive ECG on your Samsung Watch may indicate that not enough blood is being pumped out to the rest of your body, which could be a sign of:
- Sinus Bradycardia.
- Damage from a previous heart attack.
- An electrolyte imbalance.
- Obstructive sleep apnea.
- An overdose of medication.
- Not enough potassium or calcium in your blood.
As always, if you're experiencing symptoms, or if you see signs of abnormal heart rhythms on your watch ECG, contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible to rule out underlying heart conditions. Here are some symptoms to look out for:
- Chest pain.
- Confusion or trouble remembering things.
- Dizziness or lightheadedness.
- Fatigue or being more tired than usual.
- A sensation that you're about to faint.
- Trouble catching your breath.
- Heart palpitations or irregular heartbeats.
