    I use the new 6 lead and it is amazing how accurate and detailed of an EKG you can take easily in just thirty seconds, then list symptoms and location and conditions. It generates a detailed report that can be saved as a PDF, printed or emailed and every cardiologist I have spoken to highly recommend this product. You can't rely on this to determine if you need to go to the emergency room because the risk to benefit of being absolutely sure cannot be denied, but you have realtime EKG'S to share.
  • Time Out Aug 19, 2019

    By proactve patient
    I have had atrial fibrillation for a number of years. During that time if I felt anything “off” I went to the ER. After relaxing and working with meditation all the symptoms went away every time. The doctors seemed to be as surprised as I was. There were many false alarms. At the hospital I was routinely checked-out. With 20 minutes of meditation all the systems were normal. My cardiologist was pleased with how I was being proactive. He showed me the Kardia app and I purchased it that day. The app gave me such peace of mind. I could use it to determine if I was having a heart event and needed to relax and check again to determine if I needed to go to the ER. Now, which is two years later, I have done routine daily readings and I’ve had no sign of a-fib except two times. I sent the results for an immediate reading and feedback. 20 minutes later—but using meditation and quietly coping whatever was going wrong had already resolved any concerns before my results even had been reported back to me. I keep my yearly check-ups and I’m doing great. Given my experience I recommend the Kardia app. It’s a great tool in your fight with heart disease. It’s peace of mind and no false alarm trips to the ER. It’s a huge piece of what I do to stay well and deal with my heart irregularities in a very wise way. Best of luck to anyone reading this post.
  • Great Tool - ICU RN gives thumbs up Apr 14, 2020

    By dinghbat
    30+ years in Critical Care nursing, and w/ a few health issues of my own now, I can only say “Wow!” This is a great tool for those wishing to know if they are having Atrial Fibrillation episodes so they can get prompt treatment. Treatment of A-fib is vital in preventing strokes, death, and disability. I was able to determine my skipped beats were not PVC’s from coffee consumption but PJC’s and probable culprit taking more levothyroxine than my thyroid levels warrant (plus my old pal, caffeine). Got my thyroid levels checked and Bingo! The intrinsic interpretation function will not give you that kind of diagnosis (only gives normal or not, a-fib or not options) unless you pay for an expert interpretation ($19) or get Premium package. If you can read ECG’s already, then this can help identify PSVT vs rapid A-fib, and many other dysrhythmias. No substitute for going to your provider, but the ability to share your rhythm strip is REALLY INVALUABLE. Option to carry it on your phone is brilliant because folks always have phones on their person to capture evrnts. I have added it to my first aid kit. Home health agencies should be using these and anyone doing wellness checks on older adults. I wonder how many lives this tool has saved, and how many strokes it has prevented? Amazing! Thank you!
  • Diary Awkward, Data transfer better Jul 28, 2020

    By Augustine of Hippo
    First of all, this device correctly diagnosed AFib following a heart valve replacement. It happened on Sunday. I sent the EKG to my surgeon. He concurred with the diagnosis arranged an appointment the next day with my cardiologist. I got on blood thinners and beta blocker and had a Cardioversion two days later. I’ve had one other episode since then and we adjusted my medication. This is the latest version of the app that just came out. The data transfer with my OMRON BP monitor works much better. Transfers first time, every time. I have both the 1-Lead Kardia Mobile and I just got the 6-Lead version. Easy to switch between the two or to choose 1L or 6L on my 6L device. The diary has gotten awkward. The Meds, BP, weight, are all in a big list. You must scroll through the list to find the item you are trying to mark. I’d recommend having the diary items items back in groups, EKG, weight, BP, Meds, etc. Also, there should be a way to mark Meds taken by groups- Morning, Noon, Dinner, Bedtime. Finally, with COVID-19 going around, it would be nice to have diary entry for body temperature. Also, for diabetics, an entry for Blood Glucose level, with averaging/graphing functions. That would make this app a one-stop shop.

    I actually bought this device from my sister-in-law about two years ago she has microvalve prolapses Proximately 3 1/2 months ago I wound up in the emergency room with a fib, she wasn’t using a device so I took it back and then I check my heart to her three times a day I’ve had two more events that require hospitalization, and one event that I treated at home I could feel the a fib, but have you confirmed that it started and more importantly that it stopped was most important the last time I was in the hospital I was in a fib for about 30 hours and they give me some new medication and I was eating a small light meal when all of a sudden I look at my wife and said I just converted so before calling the nurse I got my little device out put it on the table top bingo sinus rhythm. I don’t know where absolutely nowhere without that on my person, there’s also a very convenient flap that you can put a couple of what I call in the pocket pills that I can take when I go into a fib to help stop it best $89 I have ever spent in my life I’ve spent twice that thank you
  • Diagnosed my intermittent atrial fibrillation Jun 27, 2018

    By Great Disneyland Fan
    Have had intermittent attacks of chest pain that I thought was due to GI problems. I was diagnosed with an ulcer. After it was healed I still had several of these attacks. I noticed my heart was beating unusually. Because it happened at night or on the weekends I decided to buy the Kardia. It was the best thing I have done because on the last attack I was able to record what was happening. I was shocked that it told me I had possible atrial fibrillation. The attack lasted several hours but was gone in the morning. I called The cardiologist and was seen that morning. The EKG was normal and has been ever since. I don’t know when it will happen again,but now I can send the recording directly to my doctor for evaluation. Because of this device I can receive the treatment to prevent future episodes. I strongly recommend this device for anyone who has issues with their heart especially if it occurs intermittently.
  • The best in its category. Jun 28, 2019

    By Vnagrecha
    This is the precursor of the medical field innovations that bring into your home a quick and powerful diagnosis of your heart and it’s functions. As one of the early adopters I can only say that my faith in this Kardia working, was not mislaid. Kardia diagnosed me suddenly with a dangerous Atrial Fibrillation caused upon by the addition of an injection issued to “supposedly” keep my diabetes under better control. My specialist doctor who prescribed me the treatment for diabetes was “sceptical” because of the “Kardia” test and did nothing for 3 months during which time I had regular periodic fibrillations until I was scheduled for my cardiologist for my ongoing treatment of blood pressure checkup who took an ecg test and confirmed the fibrillation and started a medication course that possibly saved my life. I heartily recommend this to anyone over the watch band and with the new incoming introduction of the new Kardia which will be able to take 6 lead tests leading the way for a better future for people to be better aware and take care of themselves. Lastly, I paid for all devices that I gifted to friends and needy people and the one that I use myself and no inputs what so ever from the Kardia team or management and this is my own review prompted after almost 3 years of use and MUCH before its prominence thanks to Apple recognizing medical research in homes as the future.

    Latest May update causing major crash and closure of the app. This is a serious problem the developers needs to fix ASAP for those using this tool to monitor their heart conditions. Update 6/9: Uninstalling and reinstalling a clean version of app seems to resolve the crashing issue.
  • Works but renders all other apps useless Mar 9, 2018

    By Rawink
    I am updating my review to 4 Stars after hearing back from Kardia. It looks like they are doing the best they can with the watch OS and until Apple provides an OS that permits apps such as Kardia to run in the background we will have to live with it as is. The following is their very reasoned response: Thank you for your feedback and we are looking in to every avenue possible to make this experience better. To be able to gather your heart rate at the required rate, the application is forced to operate as a Workout mode by the platform, and Workout modes are forced to the front of the watch face. There is currently no way around this limitation, but we will happily make the change once the platform allows it. We’ve tried to make this as unobtrusive as possible by adding the time and date to our own screen, but understand that it may not be what you prefer. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I reported this issue some weeks ago and was assured it would be fixed in an upcoming update but we are still waiting. Meanwhile we essentially don’t have a watch dial on arm raise or a working sleep app to name just two major issues caused by this application’s frontal focus. Then there is battery drain. Because the app monitors pulse 24/7 the watch requires recharge twice daily. I appreciate what it does, but it should be smart enough to accomplish its task without expensing every other watch app and placing such a heavy battery drain.
  • My cardiologist’s response “EXCELLENT” Jul 3, 2020

    By Thank you Kardia
    I purchased the Kardia because I have a history of tachycardia. I am on a beta-blocker to control my heart rate. Recently, in spite of the beta-blocker, my heart started racing. I ran an EKG on my Kardia and was shocked to see I was having tachycardia. I took three recordings before going to the E.R. My tachycardia was resolved by the time I reached the E.R., so they sent me home. I uploaded my Kardia EKGs to my cardiologist. He was simply amazed at the quality of the strip and called the report EXCELLENT. He was happy to be able to see “clearly” what had happened during my tachycardia episode. Based on my Kardia EKGs, he was able to diagnose Paroxysmal Afib. He adjusted my treatment based on that new diagnosis. I highly recommend Kardia. If I hadn’t captured my EKG recordings prior to going to the E.R., all I would have had was wasted time that night. You can easily upload a Kardia recording to your doctor using the MY CHART app.

    Using a Nokia 7.2 this app is hopeless, I managed to get one reading and now it just won't connect. I've tried all the troubleshooting advice. No dice. It says there's no signal. There is such a small list of 'compatible' devices and yet with my husband's phone, which is not on that list, it works fine. Unfortunately he's not the one with a heart issue that needs this piece of kit. For an expensive item the supporting app should work across the board, not on such a small range of devices.

    Used for years. After latest update does not connect. Nothing. I even bought a new kardia thinking it was the device but it wasn't . The app stopped working. No connection at all. They should test the updates before release. Shocking.

    After upgrading Kardia on June 3, 2021 Kardia immediately closes/stops when opened. Rebooting phone makes no difference. Samsung Galaxy S9 running Android 10. Kardia version: 5.17.0-4f0a2fb47 Dev support is a joke, "reinstall" I stand to lose 2 years of data on my sd card, no I do not want to pay for cloud storage, I just expect app upgrades not to break things.

    The latest update caused the app to crash upon opening. Had to uninstall then reinstall the app to get it to work. Now that it's working, the Recent section for the tags is gone, which makes tagging EKG's more time consuming. Please add this functionality back.

    It logged me out and when I go to log in, I get an error message telling me I have no Internet connection which off course I do. You would expect the supporting app for an expensive piece of equipment to work as its designed and marketed to.
  • Wow! So disappointed, do not recommend. Apr 19, 2018

    By Flora319
    I was very excited to use this as a tool to help monitor my heart issues, since my symptoms are not always consistent this made me feel better about having the ability to record an EKG at the precise moment I was having symptoms. TO MY EXTREME DISAPPOINTMENT I found out that my expensive band is just that! Unless I pay EXTRA for the “premium” subscription, I can’t even record an EKG to send to my cardiologist for his review. To make matters worse, the customer service I received was ridiculous. First, she wouldn’t answer a question without me giving her my contact information (I just had a question, why is my information needed to just answer a question), then after clarifying that my Kardia band will only work if I PAY EXTRA for their premium subscription. The rep attempted to “pacify” me stating, “you didn’t have to buy the watch, sorry you didn’t see this on the website prior to purchasing the band”. This is all aside from the fact that the app drains my watch battery and takes over the face of the watch making it difficult to use other features on the watch. I FEEL LIKE I WAS SCAMMED! I bought this to help my health NOT CAUSE MORE STRESS! I will definitely be telling people about this experience.

    Was not happy with a previous update because more steps were added to save the EKG. Now with this latest update, the APP keeps closing so now my device is totally useless. And no, I shouldn't have to upgrade to a newer phone. This APP needs to be fixed.

  • Requires a subscription!!! Apr 19, 2021

    By robert124589
    So I purchased the hardware heart rate monitor and the app allows you to check for atrial fib (irregular heartbeat)And this functionality works just fine. Cardia recently sent an email saying they have added three different heart disorder conditions that this device is now capable of detecting but they expect you to pay $100 a year to unlock this new feature. Well it makes sense to me to have subscriptions for things like new content that they have to continually develop, it makes absolutely zero cents to have to pay a subscription to unlock a new hardware feature that does not require any ongoing cost to the company. This particular feature should be unlocked with a one time in app purchase if anything. When I spend money on a hardware device I expect the company to stand behind their device and continually update refined the software without forcing additional cost onto me as the consumer. It’s not like this is a completely free app and I haven’t given them a good chunk of my money already. This is nothing but a money grab. No one should pay a monthly subscription to unlock a hardware feature.

    30+ years in Critical Care nursing, and w/ a few health issues of my own now, I can only say “Wow!” This is a great tool for those wishing to know if they are having Atrial Fibrillation episodes so they can get prompt treatment. Treatment of A-fib is vital in preventing strokes, death, and disability. I was able to determine my skipped beats were not PVC’s from coffee consumption but PJC’s and probable culprit taking more levothyroxine than my thyroid levels warrant (plus my old pal, caffeine). Got my thyroid levels checked and Bingo! The intrinsic interpretation function will not give you that kind of diagnosis (only gives normal or not, a-fib or not options) unless you pay for an expert interpretation ($19) or get Premium package. If you can read ECG’s already, then this can help identify PSVT vs rapid A-fib, and many other dysrhythmias. No substitute for going to your provider, but the ability to share your rhythm strip is REALLY INVALUABLE. Option to carry it on your phone is brilliant because folks always have phones on their person to capture evrnts. I have added it to my first aid kit. Home health agencies should be using these and anyone doing wellness checks on older adults. I wonder how many lives this tool has saved, and how many strokes it has prevented? Amazing! Thank you!
  • Diary Awkward, Data transfer better Jul 28, 2020

    First of all, this device correctly diagnosed AFib following a heart valve replacement. It happened on Sunday. I sent the EKG to my surgeon. He concurred with the diagnosis arranged an appointment the next day with my cardiologist. I got on blood thinners and beta blocker and had a Cardioversion two days later. I’ve had one other episode since then and we adjusted my medication. This is the latest version of the app that just came out. The data transfer with my OMRON BP monitor works much better. Transfers first time, every time. I have both the 1-Lead Kardia Mobile and I just got the 6-Lead version. Easy to switch between the two or to choose 1L or 6L on my 6L device. The diary has gotten awkward. The Meds, BP, weight, are all in a big list. You must scroll through the list to find the item you are trying to mark. I’d recommend having the diary items items back in groups, EKG, weight, BP, Meds, etc. Also, there should be a way to mark Meds taken by groups- Morning, Noon, Dinner, Bedtime. Finally, with COVID-19 going around, it would be nice to have diary entry for body temperature. Also, for diabetics, an entry for Blood Glucose level, with averaging/graphing functions. That would make this app a one-stop shop.

I don’t know where absolutely nowhere without that on my person, there’s also a very convenient flap that you can put a couple of what I call in the pocket pills that I can take when I go into a fib to help stop it best $89 I have ever spent in my life I’ve spent twice that thank you
  • Diagnosed my intermittent atrial fibrillation Jun 27, 2018

    By Great Disneyland Fan
    Have had intermittent attacks of chest pain that I thought was due to GI problems. I was diagnosed with an ulcer. After it was healed I still had several of these attacks. I noticed my heart was beating unusually. Because it happened at night or on the weekends I decided to buy the Kardia. It was the best thing I have done because on the last attack I was able to record what was happening. I was shocked that it told me I had possible atrial fibrillation. The attack lasted several hours but was gone in the morning. I called The cardiologist and was seen that morning. The EKG was normal and has been ever since. I don’t know when it will happen again,but now I can send the recording directly to my doctor for evaluation. Because of this device I can receive the treatment to prevent future episodes. I strongly recommend this device for anyone who has issues with their heart especially if it occurs intermittently.
  • The best in its category. Jun 28, 2019

    This is the precursor of the medical field innovations that bring into your home a quick and powerful diagnosis of your heart and it’s functions. As one of the early adopters I can only say that my faith in this Kardia working, was not mislaid. Kardia diagnosed me suddenly with a dangerous Atrial Fibrillation caused upon by the addition of an injection issued to “supposedly” keep my diabetes under better control. My specialist doctor who prescribed me the treatment for diabetes was “sceptical” because of the “Kardia” test and did nothing for 3 months during which time I had regular periodic fibrillations until I was scheduled for my cardiologist for my ongoing treatment of blood pressure checkup who took an ecg test and confirmed the fibrillation and started a medication course that possibly saved my life. I heartily recommend this to anyone over the watch band and with the new incoming introduction of the new Kardia which will be able to take 6 lead tests leading the way for a better future for people to be better aware and take care of themselves. Lastly, I paid for all devices that I gifted to friends and needy people and the one that I use myself and no inputs what so ever from the Kardia team or management and this is my own review prompted after almost 3 years of use and MUCH before its prominence thanks to Apple recognizing medical research in homes as the future.
  • My cardiologist’s response “EXCELLENT” Jul 3, 2020

    By Thank you Kardia
    I purchased the Kardia because I have a history of tachycardia. I am on a beta-blocker to control my heart rate. Recently, in spite of the beta-blocker, my heart started racing. I ran an EKG on my Kardia and was shocked to see I was having tachycardia. I took three recordings before going to the E.R. My tachycardia was resolved by the time I reached the E.R., so they sent me home. I uploaded my Kardia EKGs to my cardiologist. He was simply amazed at the quality of the strip and called the report EXCELLENT. He was happy to be able to see “clearly” what had happened during my tachycardia episode. Based on my Kardia EKGs, he was able to diagnose Paroxysmal Afib. He adjusted my treatment based on that new diagnosis. I highly recommend Kardia. If I hadn’t captured my EKG recordings prior to going to the E.R., all I would have had was wasted time that night. You can easily upload a Kardia recording to your doctor using the MY CHART app.
  • Works great even without the subscription Jan 31, 2019

    By MeWhoElseBro
    Some people were complaining that the ability to save multiple readings requires a paid subscription after the first month trial period, which is true. But that can be easily overcome without the subscription expense. Specifically after each reading you are given an option to create a PDF file of your last reading which you can then save at your favorite location, whether on your phone or in your own personal cloud account. Subsequently you can create an entire library of PDF recordings for future use. You can also forward that PDF to another person via email or text. Overall I am happy with the hardware and the app. Work well, no issues with actual measurements.
  • Must have if A Fib Jan 7, 2018

    By Bear's fan
    I went for three years after my initial A Fib episode without a reoccurrence. At times I would wonder if this app and device really worked. Then right before I was going to be leaving town for two weeks I felt a little different and the app told me I was having A Fib. I checked it several times over the next hour and then called my cardiologist and emailed him through the app. I then met him at the emergency room and he did a cardio Version and thanks to this device an app I was able to leave town with a clear mind instead of dealing with this in a strange city. To be able to know on my own what is going on with my heart is worth way more than the price of this incredible device and app

    Latest May update causing major crash and closure of the app. This is a serious problem the developers needs to fix ASAP for those using this tool to monitor their heart conditions. Update 6/9: Uninstalling and reinstalling a clean version of app seems to resolve the crashing issue.
  • Works but renders all other apps useless Mar 9, 2018

    By Rawink
    I am updating my review to 4 Stars after hearing back from Kardia. It looks like they are doing the best they can with the watch OS and until Apple provides an OS that permits apps such as Kardia to run in the background we will have to live with it as is. The following is their very reasoned response: Thank you for your feedback and we are looking in to every avenue possible to make this experience better. To be able to gather your heart rate at the required rate, the application is forced to operate as a Workout mode by the platform, and Workout modes are forced to the front of the watch face. There is currently no way around this limitation, but we will happily make the change once the platform allows it. We’ve tried to make this as unobtrusive as possible by adding the time and date to our own screen, but understand that it may not be what you prefer. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I reported this issue some weeks ago and was assured it would be fixed in an upcoming update but we are still waiting. Meanwhile we essentially don’t have a watch dial on arm raise or a working sleep app to name just two major issues caused by this application’s frontal focus. Then there is battery drain. Because the app monitors pulse 24/7 the watch requires recharge twice daily. I appreciate what it does, but it should be smart enough to accomplish its task without expensing every other watch app and placing such a heavy battery drain.
  • Why all the money? Apr 23, 2020

    By Drashish123456
    I’m a internist and I purchased this to use during the COVID outbreak for EKGs in patients to calculate qTC intervals. I’m also a consumer and like to check my EKG. The device is great, super easy, user friendly and nice tracing to send to a doctor. BUT here is the bad side. “Premium” program. It seems every business these days is trying to what I believe rip off the consumer with monthly charges. First BP apps were free or you paid $1.99 to buy. Now you pay $1.99 or $6.99 per month for the privilege of what are limited benefits and those that do benefit, represent a tiny portion of users. It’s looks greedy and in very poor taste and occupies valuable app screen space. At the very least, keep it out of the app. Have some class. And price your product appropriately since no one really need a monthly subscription for EKGs. And please tell that to your entire industry.
  • Very Good but Could be better May 26, 2019

    By jhw56
    I really like this app, however, in the medications tab there is no way to input multiple tablets, ie take 2 pills twice a day. I also don’t have the option of a tablet that is twice the dose. So with minor change, could be better. Also in the blood pressure, it suggests an Omron monitor, which I have, but it won’t connect to it wirelessly, yet this wrist monitor will connect to another app. So I have to enter data manually, which takes away so of the benefits that wireless connection gives. I tried to purchase the premium subscription in the app and it was difficult. Instead of the subscription it purchased another device which was around the same price point. I had to cancel the order before it was shipped. Why is it so hard to order the subscription? If these issues were fixed, I would give this app five stars.
  • Great device, but- Apr 16, 2021

    By ⚡️🫀
    I loveee the Kardia device!! It takes beautiful recordings and if you do it right, there is minimal artifact. It’s a great tool for patients to catch episodes and abnormal rhythms for their doctor to see. However, the “clinician review” Kardia offers is NOT worth it!! I work with a Cardiac Electrophysiologist (cardiologist who specifically specializes it heart rhythms) and we tested a theory; I sent in some of my own abnormal rhythm strips (obviously my doctor and I already knew what they showed) and both times the “Clinical Analysis by a Board-Certified Cardiologist” was incorrect! And very far off from the correct diagnosis too. A cardiologist may be able to differentiate between basic/common rhythms, but they are not well versed in the arrhythmia world. If you are paying to have your EKG reviewed, it should be by an Electrophysiologist! Otherwise, it’s a waste of money IMO and you may get a wrong diagnosis back.
  • Had to turn OFF Bluetooth for Kardia to work Dec 24, 2018

    By TombD
    Spent very frustrating 1/2 hour trying to take my first Kardia reading with the Kardia app telling me “it could not connect to my (iPhone 7 iOS 12.1.2) microphone and to kill all apps that used the microphone or speakers”. After killing 5 or 6 apps one after the other, was still getting error message. I wear hearing aids connected to phone via Bluetooth so took a wild guess they might have something to do with the issue although I do not think they access the microphone. But after turning off Bluetooth, Kardia measurement went smoothly. Hopefully, this might help someone else if everything suggested by Kardia app fails. Rated 4 stars initially since Kardia app did take first reading successfully BUT should have suggested Bluetooth OFF option to enable first (& future?) readings.

    After upgrading Kardia on June 3, 2021 Kardia immediately closes/stops when opened. Rebooting phone makes no difference. Samsung Galaxy S9 running Android 10. Kardia version: 5.17.0-4f0a2fb47 Dev support is a joke, "reinstall" I stand to lose 2 years of data on my sd card, no I do not want to pay for cloud storage, I just expect app upgrades not to break things.

    The app works well for recording the EKG. I purchased an Omron BP7000 so that I could record my BP via Bluetooth and keep better records. I was very pleased at first and purchased the monthly subscription. When I tried to generate a Custom Health Report is when I encountered problems. It generates the report but it somehow does not include many BP readings in the report. Its just as if they never were made. I see them on my phone and all the data is there with no missing data. The Custom Health Report that I want to send though misses many of them. I have contacted support and they say that my phone is not compatible and basically "too bad so sad". My phone is a new Samsung running Android 11 which is the latest system. I do not see how that could affect the report that is generated by the Alivecor server. Its a shame that what I see as a major bug is not addressed by the manufacturer. Seeing the report is important to me and I am paying for it I have to give it a low rating even though all the functions work on my phone.
  • Poor customer service Jan 26, 2018

    By walker1127
    The watch band was a Christmas gift and I installed this app the day after Christmas. The very first thing I noticed was only 8 days left in my trial period, they advertised a 30 day trial. About me, my heart function due several heart attacks and ultimate quad bypass surgery. Every EKG done on my heart SHOWS AS ABNORMAL DUE TO THE DAMAGE. Every ekg done with the app shows a normal result which was very suspicious. I contacted support twice asking about the accuracy of their app, each time i was referred to my doctor. My doctor has nothing to do with your app or Apple Watch band. In my opinion if in fact this was an ekg done on my heart it should have at least show that my heart is in fact damaged but the app always says normal which leaves me to believe only normal is all the app is capable of displaying. Normal is NOT a word associated with my heart owing that my heart function is less than %30. My heart damage is caused by exposure to agent orange while is south vietnam. Now the trial period, in my opinion the trial period should start when the watch and app are installed not when the bans was purchased. As stated i had a 7 day trial, not near enough time for a fair or valid assessment of the app or watch band. If the app and band are even close to accurate it would show an abnormal EKG. THIS SYSTEM IS DANGEROUS and not very well thought out. And once more 7 days not near enough time for a proper evaluation . Dewey Pollock in central Florida

    I thought it was a great tool, until I upgraded from Android 10 to 11, then it worked one time and quit. Some excuse about security issues. I say excuse because it still works on my Moto G4 with Android 7, but not Moto G fast with Android 11. And I can still enter manual readings, just cannot do the EKG which was the whole point of the purchase. Not a happy customer now !

    Using a Nokia 7.2 this app is hopeless, I managed to get one reading and now it just won't connect. I've tried all the troubleshooting advice. No dice. It says there's no signal. There is such a small list of 'compatible' devices and yet with my husband's phone, which is not on that list, it works fine. Unfortunately he's not the one with a heart issue that needs this piece of kit. For an expensive item the supporting app should work across the board, not on such a small range of devices.

    Used for years. After latest update does not connect. Nothing. I even bought a new kardia thinking it was the device but it wasn't . The app stopped working. No connection at all. They should test the updates before release. Shocking.

    The latest update caused the app to crash upon opening. Had to uninstall then reinstall the app to get it to work. Now that it's working, the Recent section for the tags is gone, which makes tagging EKG's more time consuming. Please add this functionality back.

    It logged me out and when I go to log in, I get an error message telling me I have no Internet connection which off course I do. You would expect the supporting app for an expensive piece of equipment to work as its designed and marketed to.
  • Wow! So disappointed, do not recommend. Apr 19, 2018

    By Flora319
    I was very excited to use this as a tool to help monitor my heart issues, since my symptoms are not always consistent this made me feel better about having the ability to record an EKG at the precise moment I was having symptoms. TO MY EXTREME DISAPPOINTMENT I found out that my expensive band is just that! Unless I pay EXTRA for the “premium” subscription, I can’t even record an EKG to send to my cardiologist for his review. To make matters worse, the customer service I received was ridiculous. First, she wouldn’t answer a question without me giving her my contact information (I just had a question, why is my information needed to just answer a question), then after clarifying that my Kardia band will only work if I PAY EXTRA for their premium subscription. The rep attempted to “pacify” me stating, “you didn’t have to buy the watch, sorry you didn’t see this on the website prior to purchasing the band”. This is all aside from the fact that the app drains my watch battery and takes over the face of the watch making it difficult to use other features on the watch. I FEEL LIKE I WAS SCAMMED! I bought this to help my health NOT CAUSE MORE STRESS! I will definitely be telling people about this experience.

    Was not happy with a previous update because more steps were added to save the EKG. Now with this latest update, the APP keeps closing so now my device is totally useless. And no, I shouldn't have to upgrade to a newer phone. This APP needs to be fixed.

    After the latest update, app won't even start up. It just immediately shuts down with an error. Worked fine until this last update.
  • Requires a subscription!!! Apr 19, 2021

    By robert124589
    So I purchased the hardware heart rate monitor and the app allows you to check for atrial fib (irregular heartbeat)And this functionality works just fine. Cardia recently sent an email saying they have added three different heart disorder conditions that this device is now capable of detecting but they expect you to pay $100 a year to unlock this new feature. Well it makes sense to me to have subscriptions for things like new content that they have to continually develop, it makes absolutely zero cents to have to pay a subscription to unlock a new hardware feature that does not require any ongoing cost to the company. This particular feature should be unlocked with a one time in app purchase if anything. When I spend money on a hardware device I expect the company to stand behind their device and continually update refined the software without forcing additional cost onto me as the consumer. It’s not like this is a completely free app and I haven’t given them a good chunk of my money already. This is nothing but a money grab. No one should pay a monthly subscription to unlock a hardware feature.

    After the latest update the app no longer works. Simply closes seconds after opening on my android. Great job fixing what wasn't broken.
