Which pacemaker/s should I consider

I am a 51 year old male, who had a CABG X6 (6 bypasses) two and a half years ago.  My cardiologist and an arrythmia specialist are advising me that I need to have a pacemaker implanted b/c of a defective SA node.  I am 6', 180 lbs, have never been overweight, don't drink or smoke, like to run, hit a boxing heavybag, and work out with weights.  Which pacemakers should I consider?

Hello. The best device in your case would probably be a dual chamber pacemaker with HR modulation (DDDR). Good luck.

Thank you.  Any specific brand that you have in mind (I understand the sales reps of different mfgrs will be there when I am to have the device implanted).
