    Hi,

    I am interested in this app. Can those that own it, and have newer watches than the original watch, confirm it does all that the stock app monitoring in WatcOS4 does?

    I have the original watch and want the extra heart rate monitoring features of the new OS. I was going to buy an LTE watch but where I live no carriers are supporting it (yet).

    Thanks

    Thanks. I had bought it since my original post. It’s a great app.

    Superb app. Takes heart monitoring to a new level. Makes sense of ALL the Health app data. I use the sleep tracker (actually recently got Autosleep by same developer). Incredible iPhone app and very useful Apple Watch complication. Grab it.

    This is hand down my favorite Apple Watch app. I’ve used it on my s0 since it came out. I have a s3 coming and I’m looking forward to the additional heart rate data.

    Absolutely a fantastic app combo on the AW/iPhone! With these apps, (HeartWatch, AutoSleep), does everything that the $800 Garmins and Suunto's do! Great for data freaks..

    Do you turn on the workout from Heartwatch or from the usual workout app?

    Same, usually. Been testing the new WorkOutDoors app though. Developer is all over it and it will soon be my go to app. And it has maps!

    Just the usual activities / workout app. I use Autosleep and HeartWatch all day -- love the data they provide.

    I use cardiogram. How does heartwatch compare to that?

    I use both cardiogram and heartwatvh. I’m takeing part in cardiogram’s study on irregular heart rythems with KardiaPro for Mobile ekg readings.

    I like and find both apps have useful features the other does not.

    On heartwatch I love the heart rate warning settings while Apple’s heartrate app would give you only a high heart rate warning heartwatch lets you get notified for low, very low, high resting, elevated and others.

    Cardiogram gives you a nice graph of each workout and your total heart activity for the day,

    However heartwatch’s circle charts are also nice

    What’s the impact on battery life of either app?

    The battery drain on my phone using both of the apps is 1% each don’t know how to measure the drain on the watch itself but I don’t think they run on the watch them self’s they just use the heart rate the watch relays to the phone. My series 3 late will last all day with using a constant Cardiogram mentoring session lasting 10 mins or more 3 tines a day where my series 0 would be almost dead by 4 hours

    I don't think it hits the battery at all. It just pulls from existing heartbeat data the watch is gathering anyways. Unless you set the app to continuous monitoring. I'm running caridogram and can easily go 2 days between charges.

    Yes, this - no battery difference here either. Just pulls from existing data that the watch collects in a normal day's usage anyway.

    They are also pretty much the same on readings the only thing is a lot of times during the day my heart rate is low enough that Cardiogram thinks I’m asleep :([​IMG][​IMG]

    I also use the HeratWatch app, along with the Sleep app that accompanies it. I have had the Kardia ECG device for about 2 years and love the information it can provide.

    Does HeartWatch's heart rate recovery measure only work if you use the app's own workouts? Or will it also work if you use Apple's Workout (or another app)?

    I love this app. Just a few minutes ago, it gave me a notification that my heart rate was low, 46BPM. Never saw the low warning before. 46 is normal for me especially when I am resting as I was and I do 4-5 mile walks daily plus another 6,000-7,000 steps daily at my job.

    I bought the app, still figuring out what the added value is of the trillion menus, graphs and statistics...
