HeartWorks is an application for the iPhone that monitors your heart rate. It works with heart chest strap and watch monitors that use the Bluetooth Smart.
It is designed to work for many hours and save all your heart rate data into a zoomable graph. You may have many sessions, keep them and view their statistics and graphs later.
It works in the background and the heart rate is even displayed as a number in the app icon.
HeartWorks does not claim to be, nor intends to be, a medical or clinical application.
Basically, HeartWorks monitors your heart rate and saves the data. The iPhone needs to be connected to a Bluetooth heart rate monitor (such as a Polar or Wahoo).

Does it work in the background?
I bought this app because it claims it works in the background and the icon shows the heart rate. Well that part is not working for me. How do you get the icon to show the heart rate? That was the main reason I got this app, so quick look at my home screen I can see my heart rate
Does what it says it will
It records my heart rate from my monitor and charts it well. I like being able to email it to myself as a CSV file for further analysis.
The only thing bad I have to say about this is that it is fairly evident a graphic designer has been nowhere near this thing. That is overlooked easily because it actually works and doesn't want to force me to sight up for a cloud service to use it.
One bug: there is a phantom history entry that came with it which I cannot view or delete. Attempting to do so crashes the app every time.
Wish it showed calories, paid app that should have that basic function
