Been using this application for2-3 years, usually after walking 5-10 miles outdoor , at the gym, after waking up in the morning or just showing to individuals who do not know of the built-in heart application on their iPhone that goes with the heart rate monitor, the free part I like the best because it is simple and easy to use by starting the application and placing your index finger on the lenses of your camera when the light comes on, be patient and leave the finger gently on the lighted area till the circle finishes a full circle and gives you a pulse rate number, there’s a note pad to write what activity you where doing before taking your measurements, Am 64 years old and this tool helps keeping track of my fitness progression in moderation and consistency. ❤️😎
I first downloaded well let me say I purchased Azumio Heart Rate Checker when that was all you had to pay for; just the app. Of course they had a free version but I opted for the paid version because it had more features. Now this app has turned into one big in-app-purchase. Everything you click on; in an app you already paid for, opens up another screen wanting you to sign up for a premium subscription. There are thousands of similar free apps on the app store that offer the same services as this one but again I went with Azumio. Now I wish I would have never even downloaded this. Yes it will check my heart rate but then it jumps to screens you can’t even view unless you buy a subscription. I wanted this app because I have high blood pressure and have suffered numerous heart attacks and needed something to keep track of my heart rate. I don’t care about my weight nor do I care what Joe Blows heart rate is in another country. This use to be a straight forward heart rate monitor/tracker and greed has driven the developers away from what once made them great. If I was an athlete, weight lifter, or health nut then everything in the app would be fine. But not everyone is wanting everything thats offered in this app yet it’s constantly threw down their throat. I still monitor my heart rate and will do the Stand Up Test but then I close the app out just to forgo all the subscription pop ups. Sorry Azumio but this app just isn’t what it use to be.
One of my favorites. It seems rather accurate. Will test this against a Holter monitor later this month. So far it seems the highest degree of accuracy is attained by laying the phone on your finger while resting your arm on a table and don't move. I hope it can be possible to export the graphs to open on the computer in order to view the full range of the pressure of each pulse. I can see in the Realtime graph how it is resized, say from a group of strong pulses to a group of Weak pulses. My pulses are strong when I breathe in and weak when I breathe out. The saved graph does not indicate this. You get a bunch of ads when you open the app. Yeah, it's irritating, especially if you want to get a reading right away, but it doesn't interfere with the performance or accuracy while the test is monitoring.
The only objection I have is the app makes you struggle through a few pages that encourage you to first login through facebook, which you can decline (no login is necessary at all but not clear if you can set it up to skip this page; then you get another page encouraging you to sign up for premium ( what you would want premium escapes me) then it measures your pulse and then you have to turn down some other choice before it gives you the result. Other than that, the bp measurement is a snap and works great. You don’t even need to use a finger - almost any place will do. 10 seconds any it’s done. I would like to be able to use this in an emergency and the clunky interfering steps that try to rope you into making more profit for the coders are a serious detraction.
I have been using this app for years. I have tested this while sitting and running and compared it to the readings of my chest strap HRM and was happily surprised how well it works, giving me the same rating as my chest strap (which does not connect to my phone). While I don’t use this app to check my heart rate while I run it was still a great test. I have tried other monitors that do not pick up HR very well while running. I purchased the Premium, but have noticed what is included in the Premium keeps changing so its a little confusing when I get ads recommending I upgrade. This is the only thing I don’t like and recommend they re-name these upgrades to avoid confusion or add the new features as free enhancements. Looking at new options they seem appear to be great options.
