Kardia works with the FDA-cleared KardiaMobile or KardiaBand ECG devices— the most clinically-validated mobile EKG solution on the market.
Just touch the sensors on your Kardia EKG device for 30 seconds to capture a medical-grade EKG anytime, anywhere - no probes or wires necessary. Get an immediate result from Kardia's Instant Analysis of Normal, Possible AF, Bradycardia, Tachycardia or Unclassified. Additionally you can choose to send the recording to your physician or to one of our partners for a paid Clinician Review. (Clinician review available in U.S., U.K., Ireland, and Australia only).
SmartRhythm workout monitoring is a system that takes your heart rate and activity data gathered from the Apple Watch during workouts, and evaluates it using a deep neural network to predict your heart rate pattern. If your heart rate differs from the neural network prediction, SmartRhythm will notify you to record an EKG with your KardiaMobile or KardiaBand. Kardia integrates with Apple Health to monitor users heart rate during workout.
New U.S. accounts will have their first EKG sent to our partners for review by a U.S. board-certified cardiologist free of charge (a $19 value within the app). You will be blocked for up to 24 hours from EKG features until the review is complete. This will only happen with your first EKG, all future EKGs on your account will give you a Kardia Instant Analysis, and allow you to review your EKG immediately.
The Kardia app, paired with Kardia Mobile, is recommended by leading cardiologists and used by people around the world for accurate electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) recordings.Record your heart health data with the medical accuracy your doctor can trust.
NOTE: Requires KardiaMobile or KardiaBand hardware to record an ECG

A True Personal Health Tool
I was having heart palpitations and brief rapid heart rate episodes lasting any where from minutes to hours. I went through the regular cardiac tests..... stress test, blood work, EKG, echo, and 48 hour mobile heart monitoring. The palpitations and rapid heart rate did not surface during these test. How discouraging, because my symptoms were real but not solid proof. My cardiologist was concerned but not convinced there could be a problem. I mean after all doctors work with concrete facts.
I remembered I had a Kardia, AliveCor Mobile EKG which I had purchased a year or so before these symptoms to help with my mother's heart tracking.
I started monitoring my palpitations with the view to sharing the results with my doc. I also used the device when I started to have longer rapid heart rate episodes which were sporadic and usually occurred when the Doc's office was closed. (Who can run to the doctor at a moments notice and get in? Not me) Bingo! Proof that my symptoms were real. I printed out the EKG records I had taken with my Kardia, faxed them to my cardiologist, and received a call the same day with the diagnosis of Afib. I truly believe a correct diagnosis came about faster, without a possible emergency room visit, and in the comfort/safely at home only because of this fabulous device and easy to use app. For under a hundred dollars it's the BEST investment in my and my family's health I have made.
Diagnosed my intermittent atrial fibrillation
Have had intermittent attacks of chest pain that I thought was due to GI problems. I was diagnosed with an ulcer. After it was healed I still had several of these attacks. I noticed my heart was beating unusually. Because it happened at night or on the weekends I decided to buy the Kardia. It was the best thing I have done because on the last attack I was able to record what was happening. I was shocked that it told me I had possible atrial fibrillation. The attack lasted several hours but was gone in the morning. I called The cardiologist and was seen that morning. The EKG was normal and has been ever since. I don’t know when it will happen again,but now I can send the recording directly to my doctor for evaluation. Because of this device I can receive the treatment to prevent future episodes. I strongly recommend this device for anyone who has issues with their heart especially if it occurs intermittently.
Wow! So disappointed, do not recommend.
I was very excited to use this as a tool to help monitor my heart issues, since my symptoms are not always consistent this made me feel better about having the ability to record an EKG at the precise moment I was having symptoms. TO MY EXTREME DISAPPOINTMENT I found out that my expensive band is just that! Unless I pay EXTRA for the “premium” subscription, I can’t even record an EKG to send to my cardiologist for his review.
To make matters worse, the customer service I received was ridiculous. First, she wouldn’t answer a question without me giving her my contact information (I just had a question, why is my information needed to just answer a question), then after clarifying that my Kardia band will only work if I PAY EXTRA for their premium subscription. The rep attempted to “pacify” me stating, “you didn’t have to buy the watch, sorry you didn’t see this on the website prior to purchasing the band”.
This is all aside from the fact that the app drains my watch battery and takes over the face of the watch making it difficult to use other features on the watch.
I FEEL LIKE I WAS SCAMMED! I bought this to help my health NOT CAUSE MORE STRESS! I will definitely be telling people about this experience.
