Heart Analyzer updated with ECG support ahead of watchOS 5.1.2 launch

Heart Analyzer, an iPhone and Apple Watch app which gives you a better understanding of your heart rate rhythm, has pushed an extensive update on App Store with support for displaying electrocardiogram (ECG) information captured by Apple Watch Series 4.

Recording an electrocardiogram of your heart’s rhythm requires an Apple Watch Series 4 with the watchOS 5.1.2 update. This FDA-regulated feature is currently limited to the United States.

If you’re lucky enough to live in the US and own a Series 4, download the new Heart Analyzer 6.3 and get a better overview of your heart’s condition because it now features full support for displaying detailed content about your captured ECGs.

An extensive ECG update

Similar to the onboard process in the watchOS 5.1.2 software, this app provides a dedicated ECG section where you can learn about the most important aspects of your heart’s health and get a better understanding of the data.

All the ECG analytics features are free for all users of the app. If you don’t have Series 4, you can still view any stored ECG data in the Health app or in Heart Analyzer. Other changes include some color tweaks, a new preceding 7-day graph on the dashboard (select a day, it gives you an instant view to your average heart rate trends) and a pair of fixes:

  • Significant improvements to the sync engine to prevent some days not being sampled correctly on iPhone.
  • Addressed some issues that caused the watch app to not always install correctly, please make sure you update to the latest watchOS software to mitigate this.

Created by developer Simon Edwardes, Heart Analyzer displays your heart rhythm measured by Apple Watch in an understandable form. You can view your daily, workout or sleep heart rate graphs, see personal statistics and deep analytics, get graphical plots of your heart data and active energy on any given day from the past three years and more.

A better way to assess your health

Created by developer Simon Edwardes, Heart Analyzer displays your heart rhythm measured by Apple Watch in an understandable form. You can view your daily, workout or sleep heart rate graphs, see personal statistics and deep analytics, get graphical plots of your heart data and active energy on any given day from the past three years and more.

Key features:

  • Graphical plots of your heart rate data and active energy on any given day from the past three years.
  • Full statistics on your average, maximum, minimum and resting heart rates from the past three years.
  • Access Deep Analytics based on heart rate, activity and workouts data from the past year.
  • Many other advanced analytical features.

Apple Watch features:

  • Includes an instant and informative app giving you a snapshot of your heart rate for the day with an updating graph.
  • Make use of customizable complications to keep you up to date with your heart rate.
  • Apple Watch Series 4 users can get a live heart rate graph right on their wrist with the Infograph Modular complication.

Heart Analyzer uses proprietary algorithms to display your data in useful ways. It integrates with the stock Health app on your iPhone to read your heart rate, active energy and sleep data (it optionally writes to your sleep data). I should also mention that this is a viewing app that doesn’t save your daily history, that’s already managed by Apple’s Health app.

The app requires an Apple Watch and is not available on iPad.

Now, I’ve used a bunch of sleep and heart tracking apps for both iPhone and Apple Watch and I can honestly say that this is one of the best apps in terms of giving users a better understanding of their heart rate in visually compelling and engaging ways.

Highly recommended!

Heart Analyzer is free to download in App Store (a $2 in-app purchase is required to view data from more than 14 days ago and to customize the Apple Watch app).
