Cardiio helps you measure your pulse (heart rate) using your phone camera, learn how the numbers relate to your general wellness, perform effective workouts to get in shape, and track your progress.
*** Featured on The Doctors (CBS), ABC News and more ***
MEASURE YOUR HEART RATE:
• Just hold your iPhone or iPad and simply cover the back camera with your finger to read your pulse
• See how your heart rate relates to your fitness and endurance
IMPROVE YOUR FITNESS:
• Built-in high-intensity circuit training exercises that only takes 7 minutes to complete
TRACK YOUR PERFORMANCE:
• Personal dashboard with history (daily, weekly and monthly)
• Save, edit, annotate, export your data (CSV)
HEALTH KIT INTEGRATION
• Save your heart rate measurements to the Apple Health app.
*Upgrade to PRO to enjoy the full features of the app!
Blood absorbs light. Every time your heart beats, the blood flow to your finger increases, causing more light to be absorbed. In between beats, less light is absorbed. By using your smartphone camera to capture tiny changes in reflected light from your finger, Cardiio can calculate your heart rate.
**IMPORTANT TIPS FOR BEST RESULTS
• ALWAYS hold your phone steady, keep still, and don’t talk during a measurement.
• Make sure your fingers are not cold.
• Cover the entire back camera lightly with your finger; Don't press too hard to avoid restricting blood flow to your finger.

Unsuitable for those outside "normal"
The app does not have a way to record irregular heart rates/arrhythmia, especially during severe tachycardia, including SVT events. Instead, it interprets as poor signal and does nor offer an option to save the waveform. Wouldn't have paid had I known.
Edit: Had to edit review to reduce the rating. The new look and its update are pretty bad. The app badly needs a feature where user gets an option to save the reading and waveform even if the app "thinks" it is wrong. It shows the waveform but decides not to save. This is useless.
Also, with the exercises, there is no user flexibility in choosing what kind of exercises you wish to do and for how long you want to do them. There are some exercises, such as jumping jacks, step on stool, side plank that I cannot do due to some injuries and medical problems, but I have no option to simply skip these and move on to the next. I have to wait for the annoying voice to finish making me wait until I check out the next. Ain't nobody got time for that.
I had high hopes with this app, but I now regret paying for this app.
I really appreciate this free app! My cardiologist has checked my heart rate at the same time and was impressed with the accuracy ( I know it’s not a 100% medical tool etc but it’s great it works for me ) I have told many friends and family members about it too and they also have been happy. Thanks Cardiio
Enjoy using this app
This app is pretty good. I bought the other features and it is also handy and informative to keep on track of where you sit in te population and where you should aim for. I do the 7 min workouts and they are good. The heart rate measuring is also accurate.
