    Wrist-worn photoplethysmography (PPG) heart rate monitoring devices are increasingly used in clinical applications despite the potential for data missingness and inaccuracy. This paper provides an analysis of the intermittency of experimental wearable data recordings. Devices recorded heart rate with gaps of 5 or more minutes 41.6% of the time and 15 or more minutes 3.8% of the time.
