Cardiogram, the HealthKit-enabled iOS app that’s hoping to help fight heart disease, just got a big update that adds Apple Watch support, 3D Touch gestures, and more.
Developed in collaboration with researchers at the University of California, and working alongside the Health eHeart study, Cardiogram was created to find a way to detect atrial fibrillation, a medical condition that can lead to stroke.
The app can detect abnormal heart rhythms using the sensors in your Apple Watch, and with its latest update, it’s a native app that’s optimized for watchOS 2. That means you can now track and view heart data without being connected to your iPhone.
The update also adds a new Apple Watch complication that lets you view your latest heart-rate readings.
On the iPhone side, Cargiogram shows your move, exercise, and stand goals in a new Metrics pane. You’ll also find activity statistics and trending HRM data, with redesigned heart rate charts that support pinch-to-zoom.
Cardiogram supports 3D Touch now, too, so you can use press gestures to tag peaks in heart rate.
Anyone with an Apple Watch can use the Cardiogram app and take part in the study. To get started, simply download the free app by following the download link below.
