This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
HeartWorks is an application for the iPhone that monitors your heart rate. It works with heart chest strap monitors that use the Bluetooth Smart or the ANT+ technology .
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.
--> Bluetooth Smart: for this to work you need the BLUE HR monitor from Wahoo. This only works on the iPhone 4S and the new iPad (and probably anything newer)
--> ANT+ : To work with an ANT+ heart monitor (chest strap) you need a "Wahoo Key" (dongle) which is an ANT+ receiver. This app does NOT work with the Digifit or Garmin ANT+ dongles though it does work with the Garmin and other ANT+ chest straps.
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 heart rate monitor (such as a Garmin or Wahoo). For ANT+ it also needs a dongle (the "Wahoo Key" receiver that is purchased separately from Wahoo Fitness and is attached to the iOS device.
See http://www.wahoofitness.com/?affID=5209) for the Wahoo products.

What's New in Version 5.3
Adjusted the scale of the heartbeats and fixed some minor bugs.
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.
