Heart rate question

Is it possible for someone to have momentarily a high heart rate sitting calmly at 158 bpm (recorded in a fitness watch ) but said person didn't feel anything?? If so, what could be the cause?

I suspect the heart monitor fitness watch.  Learn how to feel your heart beat on the wrist on neck.  As you doctor/nurse or someone you know does aerobic exercise.

The fitness watches are great but do bounce around readings.  I can look at mine and think really hard about it and see my number go up before my eyes.  All while sitting comfy on my couch!  BUT, I would check in with your care provider.
