NOTE: Make sure that your fingertip completely covers the camera lens. Press gently, since pressing too hard reduces blood flow in your finger and it's harder to get a result. Make sure that your fingers are not cold. This app is for recreational and fitness use only!

Sally Abdalgadir

Paid version of free app  Sally Abdalgadir  1 star

Why does this cost 5.40? It’s just like the free app. Total rip off!


Love it  JoedaChamp  5 star



ECG & Emergency call service.  Myro*  3 star

This feature is not present.


Want back into apt.  PhyllisLMH  5 star

Want to resign into your app. I was wrong to try and cancel my membership. Was not very smart of me. Thank you.


Is important to know your heart rate  oyamat123  5 star

I even take the heart rate to my friends


$$$  upkilchis  2 star

This app works okay but even paying 5 bucks the app still HAMMERS you with ads in the most annoying ways possible. I set up several heart rate apps to see whose I liked best and which to keep, and even though I paid for this one I’m dumping it due, again, to obnoxious ads that make using the app stupidly difficult.


Todd  Tamir33  5 star

Great monitor  Niño Malo1  5 star

I use this regularly while I am hiking so I can stay within the particular heart zone I have chosen for that particular day, whether it’s interval training, cardio, or fat burning zones, this convenient app is with me and as close as my cell phone.

Rita Orton  will not be using  1 star

Did not understand how to use it was told to sign in but was afraid I would be in some type of fixed agreement for monthly surcharge so deleted on the same day


Love heart rate  Talima  5 star

Love heart rate app, it's accurate, good for what I need. I don't need the up grade, just need to check my heart rate from time to time. Heart Rate gets a five star rating from me, I have been using it for about three years. A big thumbs up.

Dalmai Lovett  Xfhotty  5 star

After having an attack of heart racing way to fast, resulting in having my heart shocked back into rhythm, this App is not only a life safer but a must.


I can see it...!  Eggybread83  5 star

I can see my heartbeat through my Penis ! Best app everrrrrrrr A+


Accurate and inexpensive.  LB12355  5 star

I tested the accuracy of my heart rate shown with the Doctors. The exact same number. I personally have found that comforting knowing the rate us accurate. Everyone should have this app. I am definitely going to upgrade mine for additional information.


Unreliable app looking to milk more money out of you.  JoeG007  1 star

Totally disappointing. First the heart rate reading is completely unreliable. It goes all over the place. The app want your personal information, which serves no other purpose but to be sold online to make them more money. So much for privacy. You will constantly be bombarded to upgrade and buy other features and why would you want to do that when they fail so miserably at the main purpose of providing a reliable heart rate. I hate these apps that advertise health monitoring, but set their goals at milking every dollar out of you. Apple is failing us by approving these apps. Hope my $5 will give them indigestion.


Keeping Tabs  D0uglasss  5 star

A great way to monitor and record your heart rate in various situations to share with medical professionals


Great app!!!  GJMskier  5 star

Had this app for a couple years now. It consistently and accurately measures HR. It used to be inconsistent, but no issues any more. Highly recommend! And I don’t seem to get The annoying Premium advertisement pop up EVERY SINGLE TIME I wanted to take my HR. Kudos for that!!!


Easy  housemonster  4 star

Simple to use app makes it easy for me to keep track of my heart rate during and after different activities. Important for me because I am getting older.


Great  charlesamos  5 star

I started using this app after I began having a-fib a year ago. It helps to be able to check when I suspect my heart rate is up. The times I was in a-fib it showed immediately and I knew I had to go to ER. Great app!


Total ripoff  Tinylandry  1 star

Don’t buy this app! $4.99 and then ask for an expensive upgrade? Also checked against a professional hrm showed it was way off! I want my money back.

Muy interesante tener a la mano esta aplicación en especial para quienes tenemos que cuidar nuestra salud cardíaca y estamos medicados.


Outstanding app.  HobbitHiker  5 star

Easy to use and very convenient. Great for pre and post workout. Easy and convenient. Great for keeping track of my fitness levels.


No thanks for Premium!  Thanks😢  5 star

I don’t want Premium after one week and don’t need it either. Basic Ap is all I need. I was unable to find a place without a lot of searching to cancel subscription and get my money back and money is automatically charged every year. Feel like I was trapped!


Nice simple HR rate  brummagem  5 star

Works well — simple to use once you get used to positioning your finger over both the flash and camera lens. Pretty accurate too — it gives the same result within a heartbeat or two as a Garmin HR chest strap monitor and a wrist based HR/pressure cuff.


Excellent app  KMC070470  5 star

As the title says....
