Probably: As with most things, the details matter. It needs to be put in perspective. A slow heart can be typical of a well-trained athlete. Or it can be a sign of thyroid disease, heart disease, etc. Any meds or supplements? What time of day? Resting? Ask you DR!!!!!!

Should be OK.: Assuming the underlying heart rhythm is normal, this heart rate would be fine. Normal range is 60-100, but HR can be lower than 60 in athletic people.
