In brief: Arrhythmias
It is a monitor that records heart beats in order to identify arrhythmias (abnormal heart beats): either fast or slow, heart blocks, and correlate them with your symptoms.

In brief: Find abnormal rhythm
Holter monitors and king of hearts monitors are used to record abnormal heart rhythms.
Patients usually keep a diary or push a button on the device to correlate with any symptoms they have that might correlate to an abnormal heart rhythm. It is not alway possible to find an abnormal rhythm while checking an ekg in the doctor's office.
