HeartWorks is an application for the iPhone that monitors your heart rate. It works with heart chest strap and watch monitors that use the Bluetooth Smart.
It is designed to work for many hours and save all your heart rate data into a zoomable graph. You may have many sessions, keep them and view their statistics and graphs later.
It works in the background and the heart rate is even displayed as a number in the app icon.
HeartWorks does not claim to be, nor intends to be, a medical or clinical application.
Basically, HeartWorks monitors your heart rate and saves the data. The iPhone needs to be connected to a Bluetooth heart rate monitor (such as a Polar or Wahoo).

Ratings and Reviews
Does what it says it will
It records my heart rate from my monitor and charts it well. I like being able to email it to myself as a CSV file for further analysis.
The only thing bad I have to say about this is that it is fairly evident a graphic designer has been nowhere near this thing. That is overlooked easily because it actually works and doesn't want to force me to sight up for a cloud service to use it.
One bug: there is a phantom history entry that came with it which I cannot view or delete. Attempting to do so crashes the app every time.
Worked one time
Worked the first time, but not after. Tried with Tickr X and latest iOS on a iPhone 6s.
Really fantastic app!
Very easy to use and really fantastic tech support. This app easily let me monitor and chart my heart rate from a Bluetooth polar heart rate H7 sensor (chest band type) for an entire night of sleep. I have sleep apnea and am testing whether an orthotic device would be as effective for me as cpap (and to help me adjust orthotic to most effective tension). This app lets me monitor whether I have episode of increased heart rate which would be one sign of an panic event (still testing but last night with cpap my heart rate was steady at 70 except for the hour I used the orthotic when I had a period of increase heart rate to 140 ! So this looks helpful). It's a cool feature that you can email the chart to yourself too. Very easy to use. Highly recommend! (Maybe they could add oxygen level monitoring next!) . I put the iphone in a chest pocket to make sure of a high quality recording (not sure if necessary but it worked well).
