Safety of wearing a heart rate monitor
According to the Cleveland Clinic, “the risks of using heart rate monitors are very minimal. For the most part, the greatest concern is an allergy you might have to some of the materials that make up the band or the device itself. However, just because these devices are safe to use doesn’t mean they’re a substitute for officially approved medical devices. If you have health concerns that need monitoring, the safest and most accurate devices are those that have approval from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (or from the appropriate regulatory agency in your country). That approval means these devices meet strict quality and accuracy standards and that they're ideal for medical use.”
