I’ve had this app for about 4 years. It’s one of the few apps on my phone that I do use every single day and this and the iWatch has helped me get my health back on track. I’m in my mid 40’s now. 4 years ago, I was working an absolute HELL job in property management. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, I’d review HeartWatch at home every evening and my heart rate was consistently in the high 80’s-90’s going up to the 130-150 range every time I took a stressful phone call. I was MISERABLE. My Doc was saying, “Quit the job or end up dying young from a heart attack or stroke!”
Easier said than done, Doc.
Luckily my fiancé told me to quit and work for him. I work out consistently and take supplements and eat better now. My heart rate is in the low 70’s-80’s down into the 60’s and 50’s when I sleep and my blood pressure is beautiful now! I was able to get off BP medication. I love how the app developer continually upgrades the app in accordance with new iWatch capabilities, etc.
The bad? This app could be triggering for people with health anxiety. I have extremely high health anxiety so I freak out over any weird fluctuation in heart rate, worry about what the heck a heart rate variability is and if mine is okay because it’s in the red sometimes. It’s easy to get into your head with all this data. I have to remind myself that although the heart is a miracle in itself, this does not mean every beat can be set to a metronome and must be perfect. The occasional weird reading is going to happen and it’s OKAY! This app did help me detecting patterns showing my body was stressed and gave me the incentive to change my habits when I needed to though. For that, I will forever be grateful.
HeartWatch used to be my favorite health app. Unfortunately, it does not work properly as reported on their site and forums. The simplest task of taking a pulse no longer works. I am still waiting to hear when you developers will release the fix post iOS 14. As a result I’m forced to uninstall app from my watch (series 6 running watchOS 7.0.1 and iPhone 11 Pro Max (running iOS 14.0.1. Sorry, but one of these health apps is causing serious battery drain and I’m afraid it could be HeartWatch. Thank you for your time.
I applied the Apple workaround and it solved my battery drain issue and health app disappearing data issue. So I will change my review of Heartwatch to 2 stars. Reason is your site documents the known many issues Heartwatch is having with iOS 14, yet yu developers do not have a timeline or an ETA when the fix will be released. As a former project manager this drives me crazy, and refuse to reinstall until then.
I have used this app for over a month maybe going to two months now. The beauty of so much functionalities in a single bundle, seamlessly integrates with your already owned products like Apple Watch and does not need you to purchase or have too many wearables on you to track as much of your health vitals as possible, are some of my attractions. And I recommend the bundle to anyone that has interest in finding some insights about ones own health. Thanks Tantsissa.
At first I didn’t understand but now I do. You had the goals to high I am in a wheelchair and most of my body wasn’t able to move I been to therapy but this app is helping more I am able to walk, roll my wheelchair which I wasn’t able to do they taught me to walk the wheelchair with my feet but since I been rolling the wheelchair my arms have movement all thanks goes to you and your app I hated it at first now I love it. Many thanks it’s worth the money
I appreciate all of the information. I almost wish there was a “simple” and “advanced” view, where I could toggle off some of the info with a quick switch because it seems a little overwhelming...or maybe if it would progressively show more info as I use the app to highlight what’s new or a new aspect to learn about my sleep/heart over weeks or months. But still an excellent app even without that.
I love the info provided by the app and it’s by far the most in depth of these types of apps. However, I question the accuracy of it. It routinely measures my heart rate WAY above what other similar apps (and the Health app) are measuring it at. With HeartWatch for example, right now, it reads as 92 avg daily HR while 3 other apps read exactly the same at 80 bpm. Wondering what the issue is here?
The Heart Watch app really keeps me moving. It works at the same time my Apple Watch tracks my ex resize so I get a more complete reading of what I am doing. The best is it makes me challenged to do more. I have a desire to improve my physical fitness and the many areas that this app covers is amazing. I am a post heart stent patient and this app also keeps the record so I can show my doctor.
Adjusting my review as I was able to get it to work after uninstalling and reinstalling. Works pretty well and the complications are good.
*Great screens but won’t connect to any of my data. Don’t know if it is an iOS 14 or Watch OS 7 issue but in any event. So far a complete waste of $3.99. Will even run on the watch but won’t grab any data. Completely worthless.*
Brilliant app for anyone trying to monitor their heart.
My complaint is that I receive notifications of elevated heart rate 30-60 minutes after the event. This means the notifications are not actionable. It also means that when I lie down and relax I’m getting notifications about elevated heart rates. I wish these notifications would come sooner to after the actual event.
I am a naturally competitive person and this app combined with the Auto Awake and Autp Sleep is helping me to see my bad choices and try to do better. By showing me my true statistics, I can’t hide anymore. I want to see my rings close. I want to earn the badges. My husband and I challenge each other and compare notes. This is helping push us to meet our goals.
