Cardiogram is a nifty little app that lets users create graphs from the heart rate readings from Apple Watch. The app has received a big update with brings to it a new design, 3D Touch support, and native watchOS 2 Apple Watch app.
I had reviewed Cardiogram in detail last year and ever since, it has had a permanent place on my iPhone home screen. With its graphs and heart rate tracking, it has been a useful utility. With version 1.0 release, the app has received a much-needed redesign which improves the user experience and provides improves navigation.
The app supports 3D Touch gestures on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus so you can tag different moments on your heart rate graphs for tracking abnormal changes. The charts also support pinch-to-zoom and you can search for your existing cardiograms through the top search bar. A new metrics pane houses your move, exercise, and stand goals to help you keep track.
The Apple Watch app has been updated as a native watchOS 2 app. This means that it now supports complications and can also read heart rate directly from the Watch without going through the iOS app. The complication also supports Apple’s Time Travel feature so you can rotate the Digital Crown backward to see your heart rate activity history.
Here is the complete change log for Cardiogram 1.0:
- Apple Watch complication
- Native WatchOS 2 app — see your heart rate graph directly on your Apple Watch
- Redesigned heart rate charts with pinch-to-zoom
- Your move, exercise, and stand goals show up on the new Metrics pane
Cardiogram is available as a free app in the App Store. Highly recommended app if you want to keep records of your daily heart rate activities in a more granular and visual way than what the iPhone Health app provides.
