Excellent for characterizing cardiac rhythm
I have been cardioverted twice for atrial fibrillation. Thus, it is important that I monitor my cardiac rhythm regularly. A few months ago I noticed an interesting anomaly in rhythm when I looked at my heart rate. Every third beat occurred earlier than the two previous beats and showed less blood flow. this pattern was reproducible. As a Med school professor, I had an MD/PhD student who studied genetic changes in young and old rat hearts due to aging, thus I am familiar with ecgs. I suspected a condition termed trigeminy in which every third beat is a premature ventricle contraction (PVC) beginning in the ventricle instead of the SA node. I emailed the graph to my cardiologist who had me come in for an ECG. It confirmed my “diagnosis” that indeed I was in trigeminy. Subsequently flow normalized and I have not again seen this condition. Electrolytes such as sodium and potassium play crucial roles in regulating cardiac rhythm so this condition could have been due to lower than normal concentration of an electrolyte such as potassium.
I have used this app prior on an older iPhone. Back about a year ago I didn’t care for it because it wasn’t as accurate. Now since I think the Developer did some tweaking and fixed it I have no complaints. I have actually used it along with a true 3 lead heart monitor and it is maybe one or two BPM off but that’s a huge improvement from the older versions. I recommend holding you index finger sideways pointing to the right side of your phone with the camera. For some reason you get a more accurate reading that way. Just a suggestion! I recommend this app to anyone who like me has heart issues. I suffer from sinus tachycardia and this is pretty much the best app. Also you get the free stress test as well as participation in the Heart Disease Study when you sign up. Anything I can do to help scientist and doctors treat heart issues and save lives I’m happy to review this app. I don’t review a lot of my apps but this one is deserving!
I have been using this app now for several months. I use it at various times of the day during my activities. I am 69 now but have been active all my life and this app lets me know my heart rate before and after activities. I swim 1 1/2 miles almost daily and the app makes it quick and convenient to keep an accurate record of my heart rate. My resting heart rate now ranges between the upper 40’s to the mid 50’s. And, without this app I would not have known my rate was so good. I used to try checking my heart rate by trying to measure my pulse by doing it the old manual way was a pain; as I always had to have a watch or clock in which to take a measurement. No longer, as I just place my finger on the light of my iPhone and it not only takes a convenient measurement but keeps a record. Love this app!!!
Unfortunate requirement to create login
I saw my cardiologist today, and I told him about this app on my cell phone – my iPhone, and he was really enthusiastic and excited about it. I have had times when I have needed to know what my heart rate was, and I just couldn’t do it the typical away. Well, I got this, and I can take my heart rate whenever I want or need to. It’s easy to use, and I think it’s pretty accurate. It’s one of the best apps I have ever gotten because it really helps me. I get tachycardia, and he has asked me what my heart rate was when I got it, and I never could give an answer. Well now I can, but I sure hope I don’t get tachycardia anymore. I feel like I’m taking better care of myself. I think it’s just great! And it was free! I may upgrade soon. Thanks for creating this app! Blessings! 😊
I paid the $9.99 for one month to test the credibility of this app. It is terrible to say the least. The only perk is that you can check your heart rate, lots of free apps where you can do that, and that’s about it. The stand up test is the real joke. No matter what you do it gives you a low score, I’m extremely healthy, I have regular doctor visits and am very physically fit, and this consistently gives me lower than 50% rating. Even though my heart rate is 58 BPM. Not to mention it never explains to you why you’re receiving the score you got it just gives you a random score and makes you feel horrible. If that isn’t bad enough, you can not compare it with other peoples because the friend system DOES NOT WORK! You cannot add or view other people and they probably do this so you can’t compare your ridiculous scores. I give this app a 0/10 because the free version is complete garbage and littered with ads popping up every second. Do not waste your time or money on this. You’ve been warned!
Good heart rate app!
This app seems to be pretty accurate in comparison to taking manual rates. It is simple and easy to use. It has multiple "heart-healthy" trackers built into one app and it allows you to monitor what factors, throughout day, may have an impact on your heart rate. This helps keep track of and monitor important health markers, so you can more easily manage your overall health more independently, and have a convenient place to share your information with healthcare providers so that they can also better help you manage your health (if desired.) Another positive is that this app integrates with some other apps like iHealth and sleep cycle (to name a few,) and gives the option to remind you to keep track of your heart health.
This app is not free
The app takes a reading and then locks you on a screen that forces you to give either your e-mail address or your Facebook account information. I tried to get around it, thinking this app is free. But I couldn’t. So I put in an alternate e-mail address I send junk mail to like I do with all apps that pull this type of sucker move on users. Then, after casually selecting the option that the app save my heart rate it sticks me on this inescapable screen that tells me I can use it something like 7(?) times for free but then it’s $9.99(?) a month. Dear App Developer. This 1 star review wouldn’t be here if there was transparency from the start. I’m having a heart issue. It’s why I downloaded this app. Thanks for frustrating me even more while trying to use it. Much appreciated. My advice is to download an app that’s actually either free, a reasonable one time cost, or at the least - is completely transparent in the description that this app is subscription based only.
One day I had a sudden onset of chest discomfort. Noticing that my heart rate seemed to be speeding I used the heart rate app to take my heart rate. It showed a rate of 127 and from the readout of the pattern I could tell that it was also very irregular. When it seemed to settle down, I did the same procedure again and saw a normal heart rate and rhythm. When I went to the Dr. a few days later I showed him the two readings and the huge difference between the two. This alerted him and caused him to put me in a 30 day heart monitor. Being able to show him the readout from this heart rate app was much better than just listening to my symptoms. It convinced him that something out of the ordinary happened and he is suspecting I may be having episodes of Afib.
Saved my life
This app saved my life! I was feeling dizzy, lightheaded and short of breath while in the shower. I ran out of the shower and my husband made me use this app to check my heart rate and it was 166! My husband called the cardiologist and he told my husband what to do to control my heart rate and suggested that I check it every five minutes until my heart rate leveled. It finally leveled to 85. If I had not checked my heart rate I would not have known what was causing the symptoms and would have under estimated my symptoms as nothing and could have had a heart attack. Now my cardiologist now suggests this app to his patients. This app is accurate as I have checked it along with hospital monitors and it was right on!!!
Loved it until the last update
I have loved this heart rate monitor for years. Sometimes I think it save my life. I have shown the results to my doctor multiple times. All this changed with the most recent update two weeks ago. I can no longer use it at all. It has a screen that requires me to login using my email address. The app does not recognize my email address. I can log into the website using my email address, just fine. But not the app. I’m sad to not be able to use it. It was better than any other heart rate monitor that I tried. I just about decided it was worth paying for to support the product. Don’t know why this update doesn’t work?
This app actually saved me from a heart attack I had some fatigue in the top of my legs aches and the upper top of my back ached really bad a risk cuff doesn’t work for measuring heart rate so I tried this app I wasn’t short of breath just deep rooted aches come to find out my heart was racing which was causing the aches pulse rate was 146 for days went to urgent care and come to find out it was tyrecardio which means rapid heart beat but cause yet !!!but if it wasn’t for this app letting me know my heart rate I would of never want to urgent care ... I’m 47 and we don’t know the cause of why yet !! But I thank this app for the well created accurate testing !!! Thank you for saving me from a heart attack no words could explain my gratitude !!!
I am 29 years old and one day I woke up with severe palpitations. I did not have a blood pressure monitor to check my heart rate so I came across this app and it downloaded it, not sure what to expect. This app literally saved my life and was very simple to install and setup on my phone. After placing my right index finger on the camera it gave me an accurate heart rate of almost 200 BPM, this prompted me to go to the emergency room and with God’s Grace, the doctors worked on me and was able to get my heart rate down. Needless to say I continue to use this app daily to check my heart rate, as it keeps a schedule of all the rates, dates and times!!! Please download you won’t be disappointed.
SCAM FALSE free pretenses
I downloaded to compare with my friend’s Samsung app. It said it was free. It LIED! When the app installs itself it gets you to login with a new acct or Facebook. So far “OK”. Then it says (with no ability to opt out) to do unlimited use for 7 days and the pay $9.99/mo OR get 5 free uses and then and the they’ll start billing you. Since there’s no Opt Out option (and I’m supposed to be able to “cancel at anytime” by updating settings). So I do the 5 free option and immediately go to settings WHICH SHOWS NO OPTION TO CANCEL OR CHANGE SETTINGS!! I go to tech support in Support and search for “cancel subscription” and it says I have to go through Apple Pay to cancel/manage my subscription with them. Soooo I go there and they’re not in there -at least not yet. I’m assuming they’re going to try and bill me FIRST and then cancel so they can keep $9.99. WHAT A SCAM!!! I will set a reminder for 7days from now to cancel/complain to Apple. Parasites...
Ads chaotic, interfering w measurement.
I have the non premium version of this app. I understood this non premium version of the app works to give bpm but, just not the many other features. As I try to take the measurement, ads pop up blocking the screen and even seeming to interrupt the process but in any case blocking the read out. I don’t mean a single ad. Sometimes as many as 3-4 ads pop up and block the bpm scree in rapid suggestion. The x to reject the ads are hard to see on this iPhone X but when I find the x, as I do within a few seconds, it may take several presses to clear out the ad but, worse, another ad sometimes pops up immediately, and this sometimes repeats, as I said, 3-4 times. I understand ads for non premium apps. I have other non premium apps w ads and the App Store description helpfully notes ads or no ads. They’re a small hassle of course. But I have never had an app show a second ad in immediate succession, let alone 3. or 4! And this app is about emergencies, where being able to read the core data immediately is essential. I’m getting a different app. With this performance I’m not willing to trust these developers or their app. This is heartbeats per minute!!! How irresponsible!! If you are concerned about potential incidents of too rapid beat, I’d avoid this non premium.
