Your Apple Watch is a highly sophisticated instrument, measuring and capturing your heart rate data throughout the day.

HeartWatch lets you see how your heart is beating across four simple views. Waking, Regular, Workout & Sleeping. Each of these views are isolated because, while you may want a higher heart rate during a workout, if your heart is racing when you aren't doing any exercise then this is likely not a good thing and probably something you might want to show your medical practitioner.

HeartWatch gives you an easy solution to this. It accesses your heart rate & workout readings created by your Apple Watch and unlocks the power of this information in a simple, intuitive way.

HeartWatch 2 introduces heart badges. These are a simple glanceable graphic that lets you quickly see how your heart is doing for different types of events. The colours represent time in zones overlayed with an average.

For regular* heart rate readings, the ideal is to have a completely blue badge. The bigger the red ring around the badge, the more time spent with an elevated heart rate. Even though averages can appear to be similar, the badge shows a clear picture of how your heart has really been tracking and alerts you about excessively high or low readings.

For workouts, you can easily see the zonal makeup of your workout at a glance.

*regular: time spent not sleeping nor working out.

The complication displays the last heart rate reading captured by your watch.

An instant background update has you seeing your latest heart rate and a summary of your day. You can take your "live" pulse at any time by tapping the Pulse gauge. You can start a workout directly in the app and get live updates on your heart rate zone. You can also track sleep and add measurements & notes.

Whether you are looking for heart rate irregularities or checking on your workout progress, HeartWatch makes things very easy via a 12 week big picture. Find out exactly what your heart was doing throughout your day. The addition of an energy overlay to the regular heart rate detail view means you can determine if those peaks you sometimes get are more likely due to stress or increased activity.

Capture key HealthKit measurements just by saying them, take notes about your day and track sleep.

You can configure notifications for the following scenarios.
- When heart rate exceeds a bpm value.
- When heart rate drops below a bpm value.
- A daily reminder to check how you've gone today.

Heart Watch is very useful tool to get alerted about any possible health issues in a concise format that you can show your medical practitioner.

This app requires an iPhone that has the Health App installed. Heart readings are read from the Health Data Store which is ideally populated by your Apple Watch. You can also import heart rate readings from other sources and devices.

Notifications come in way to late.

While I don’t have any heart condition, I do have the same problem that sone of your users have. Notifications are days slow. It will be the middle of a Tuesday and I’ll get a notification that my heart rate was 180 from Monday at 6:00pm! Yeah, when I was working out and that time has passed. Why do I need to be notified of this past event. At first when I got a late event I thought something was wrong. I received a low heat rate and high heart rate alert at the same time while eating lunch. It was only after My anxiety shot up that i re-looked at the events and they were from 3 days and two days prior. This is clearly a notification bug in the app. Other then that it seems to be a very good app to use compared to apples own native app. Your heart rate always gets averaged by 5 readings. Where Apple only does 1 and sometimes that can be incorrect cause of how the watch sits on your arm, if their is hair in front of the sensors just right. Apples app will day I have a 200 bpm heart rate and the watch isn’t even on me. And there is no way to remove the false event. Or sometimes it will say 56 then 200 then 80. This app is much better at getting a more accurate read on your health in real time minus those notifications.

Essential app for monitoring your health and getting the most out of your watch.

I love this app! Really, HeartWatch and the companion app AutoSleep are the best two apps I have found for the Apple Watch. I've used them every day/night for 6 weeks now. It has changed my habits almost overnight. It really is an essential app to monitor your health in the moment and over time, and for effortlessly changing your habits to improve your life. It's the bio feedback that we couldn't have dreamed of having such easy access to years ago (ok maybe I'm late to the game, I just got my Apple Watch, but I did own an expensive sports heart rate monitor that I only used a handful of times during workouts). I love how HeartWatch represents the data in various ways and the level of detail they have put into everything. Haven't done it yet but you can also export the data. Their documentation is great with a short explanation available on every screen to easily get you started (that you can make go away if you don't want to see it - I've kept it up), plus quick access to more in-depth explanations for those that want to know more.

High/Low Heart Rate Notifications Off

Among many of my cardiac issues, atrial fibrillation and supraventricular tachycardia are some of them. I have an AICD (pacemaker/defibrillator) and have almost died on multiple occasions due to my heart rate being high from activity, then going into SVT, putting me over my limit of 180bpm (last time I almost died my HR was 260bpm sustained) and my device auto-defibrillating me. It’s never been able to get me back into sinus rhythm so I just keep getting shocked until EMS arrives. The last time I was defibrillated 13 times in 7min. Fully awake and aware. Needless to say, I have debilitating/crippling anxiety and PTSD from this, especially in regards to my heart rate. This is the reason I purchased an Apple Watch and this app specifically; to track and alert me immediately of low/high heart rate. Some days I’ll get notifications 10min after the event occurred, 8 hours after the event occurred and a few times I haven’t gotten the notification until the next day! That does me no good whatsoever. I don’t know if it’s a problem with the app, the watch, or what, but I would really like it to be fixed. If the notification system worked properly this app would receive a 5-star review from me. Everything else about it I love. Unfortunately the main reason I purchased it is for immediate notification of high/low HR and it simply does not do that.
