I am in the same situation as you are. And, I'll bet that a large percentage of others like us will respond positively to this idea. I'll also bet that those who are responsible for this tracker have already confronted this situation. From the little I know about digital wi-fi and Bluetooth signals, there is quite a system of "addressing" and "pairing" for those signals that would make this unit compatible with our pacemakers. My guess is that if the pacemaker is compatible with all the abilities of a smart phone, this will be OK too. But, this only points to the importance of hearing an authoritative response from someone who really knows. So, Spire people, how about it? Inquiring minds want to know ...
