Pulse Ox

If I am wearing a pulse ox and checking my heart rate and during that time lets say If I get an ectopic beat (Pvc or Pac) will the pulse ox show an increase in heart rate? Will that pulsating line which represents your pulse show some irregularity? Lets say what if I get 3 or 4 rapid beats will the pulse ox show a much more increase in heart rate?
