Is heartrate sometimes of 50bpm bad?

Hi,
I bought fitness track Mi band 5 which has can tell my heart pulse. It measure my pulse every minute. I noticed that sometimes when I sitting that my pulse is lowers very shortly to 52bpm that returns to normal value. One minute is one value on this fitness tracker, I never had two time in row that small pulse. Otherwise my pulse is on some 75-85 level, on longer walking (3 kilometars) it jumps to 120bpm sometimes. Didn't try it yet on full run. I am no athlete, should I be worried? I wore holter before couple of years ago and I read today that value of pulse range were 56 - 125bpm and doctor then told me that eveything is ok. I wore it because I had feeling of faster heart bumping, nothing too serious. Otherwise no problem.

I am 31 years old, skinny male
193cm
76kg

Hello-Most doctors don't consider a resting heart rate too slow (bradycardia) unless it is under 50 and even then, in some, that can be normal. I wouldn't worry about your rate, it seems good to me, but I always say if you are very concerned, then seeing your GP and getting his opinion will help put your mind at ease.

"One minute is one value on this fitness tracker, I never had two time in row that small pulse." just to explain this, I think heart pulse measurment last around 15 seconds before fitness tracker tells value so I can't precise know how this low bpm last. Maybe just for a very very short time.
