At Home Arrythmia Monitors - Which Is Best (Most Accurate)?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a reliable at home heart arrythmia (not heart rate) monitor?  Is there one out there that can accurately distinguish between benign PAC's and Afib or other arrythmias?  Thanks so much.

    I don't have one, but I have done some research and if I was to get one, I would get the Alivecor's KardiaMobile 6L. It looks like it is top of the line and accurate. You don't wear it, but it's small enough to carry anywhere.

    Until you get one, there are apps on your phone that detect arrhythmias. They aren't super accurate but they do give you a better idea of what is going on until your new one arrives. I use Cardiac Diagnosis App and it helps me to feel a bit safer until I can afford something better.
