This app is from the people who wrote the book on using heart rate monitors to get healthier, stronger, and fitter…literally…and have been coaching and training others with monitors for over 35 years.
Heart Zones Training™ app is all about you and your heart rate, your heart health. It’s simple. It’s easy to use. And, this is one of the best companions (OK - we think it’s the best) to make your heart rate monitor your best friend. Heart Zones Training™ app is for any workout type - cardio, strength, flexibility - and any activity - walking, running, skating, cycling, hiking, cross training, hey - snowshoeing - to help keep your heart healthy and your stress low.
Here’s why and what you get and it is all for free:

Paint Bucket Display: If you choose one of the workouts called “Easy 30” or “Moderate 45” or "Vigorous 60” the paint bucket functionality of time in zones is turned on. This screen display shows five different paint buckets which fill during your workout with the matching color of the zones. The goal is to fill each of the buckets without spilling over. If a bucket is not full then there wasn’t enough time spent in that specific zone and likewise, if the bucket is spilling over, there is too much time spent in that zone. As your workout progresses, there is a count-down timer below the image of the buck to show the amount of time left until the buck is full.
Oh, one really huge final feature, this simple powerful app was created by the woman who wrote the first book on training with a heart rate monitor, who created the first PE program for schools and health clubs using a heart rate monitor, and who has now published over 10 titles using a heart rate monitor for weight loss, running, cycling, triathlon, personal coaching and training - she’s the pioneer and the developer of Heart Zones Training™ - Hall of Fame triathlete Sally Edwards.
Now, go have some fun, use your iPhone and the Heart Zones Training™ app for the 3 M’s: monitor, measure, and manage your workouts as you do the 3E’s: be entertained, be educated, and be engaged.

I was attempting to use this app for a fitness class I teach. The information that I have input for my age keeps reverting back to a default age. After the workout, it states it stores my workouts, however I am unable to locate them. Every time I exit the app and return I have to re-sync the heart rate monitor.
I really like the features of the app when in use. However it is frustrating that none of the information is accessible and the process of re-syncing is time consuming and ineffective for use during my class.
Lost history with latest update!
I’ve been usIng this app for several years and really like it. I just did the latest update and now all my history is gone. It would have been nice to get a heads up that this would happen.
If you’re a software developer working on this plz change it back
I’ve never written a review for an app before but the new changes render this app borderline unusable. I used heart zones app for two years with no issues. I’ll start with the biggest problems.
I like to see my heart rate on my phone using the app while I’m running. No brainer, right? They made the HR number much smaller and it’s now a red color instead of white so it’s almost impossible to see if you’re outside.
Also noticed calories burned is now way off. Upon entering height data it says height can’t be less than 18 inches or greater than 37 inches. Have I lost my mind or did we all become workout dwarves?
The UI overall is much worse, data is presented less clearly, and calorie is spelled “calory” which makes me sad.
Please, if you’re a developer and you’re reading this, fix this app. It used to be quite nice, and now it’s just ghastly.
If fixed I’ll happily take down this one star review and put up a five star review.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
