Do you also feel palpitations when you have the PAC's and ,if so, did you experience any palpitations while you wore the outpatient monitor? If you didn't you could wear a loop or event monitor for a much longer period until you experience palpitations to determine your heart rate and rhythm °ree of atrial irritability at the time of symptoms. On the other hand, your smart watch may be faulty.
