    "A Visually Stunning But Woefully Flawed Heart Rate Monitor"


    Since the arrival of Apple Watch and Android Wear smartwatches, heart rate monitor apps have been on the rise on both the App Store and the Play Store. With Cardiograph, developer Macropinch looks to change things up. Instead of being smartwatch-only, this app uses your Android smartphone’s or tablet’s camera or sensor (lower end users are left out) to measure your heart rate in real-time and track your progress over time. You can also create multiple profiles to track your family’s and friends’ progress over time.


    Cardiograph looks and feels beautiful; the UI is intuitive, polished, and very clean, making for a very easy-to-use and visually stunning heart rate monitor. It’s also free to try out, so you don’t lose anything when you download.


    Cardiograph has spent more time on making the UI look beautiful than any actual time on making the app work. The heart rate is woefully inaccurate and tends to throw in or take away your real beats per minute.

    Cardiograph is an application which measures your heart rate. You can save your results for future reference and keep track of multiple people with individual profiles.

    Cardiograph uses your device's built-in camera or dedicated sensor to calculate your heart's rhythm - the same approach used by professional medical equipment!

    Measure your heart rate

    It's never been easier to know what your heart rate is! Without any external hardware, just using the built-in camera/sensor of your smartphone or tablet, you can get accurate readings almost instantly.

    Know how fast your heart is beating

    It can be very useful while exercising, if you're under stress, if you have a heart-related medical condition, or even just out of curiosity.

    Track your results

    Every measurement you take is saved to your personal history, so you can keep track over time.

    Multiple profiles

    Cardiograph is perfectly tailored to allow multiple people to use the app on a shared device. You can create profiles for each of your family members or friends, and each of them has their own individual measurement history.

    Clean and intuitive design

    The streamlined and clutter-free design makes it seem instantly familiar, so you can focus on using the app instead of navigating through series of screens.

    Android Wear support

    Cardiograph is specifically designed with Android Wear support. You can measure your pulse using the hear rate sensor in your smartwatch. Please note that Cardiograph will work on smartwatches with a heart rate sensor only.

    Please note: If your device doesn't have a built-in camera flash, you need to take your measurements in a well lit environment (bright sunlight or close to a light source).

    Good tool for research own health details. Of course not for real medical usage but usable for regular morning of pulse during training etc. Also want suggest add some futures related to clock and alarms. In short words will be good have possibility to schedule alarms/notification for regular check.

    I thought it was doing great until, I took my finger off the sensor, it was still counting my pulse. So, I tried it additional times, during the same session, again the air has a pulse.
