Great Asset 5/5
Feel more confident knowing I can document any arrhythmias.
No more heart rate monitor no more need 1/5
By CABG Survivor
What a total let down. I can still do random EKGs but no more warnings or records of my heart rhythm . I want my money back.
Just got this 5/5
I’m new to this not sure how my Doctor is going to like this but it just more information for him
Poor support 3/5
Worked for about a year, then the wristband simply stopped performing ECGs. Wrote for support, received the usual “restart/reset everything” advice. No luck and no further support. Now that Apple Watch can do the same...why does this exist? Sorry they got run over by Apple but less sorry than I would be if they had bothered to be a better service.
Wonderful Assistant! 5/5
By Grateful Liz
Excellent reminders, peace of mind and awareness that are easy and appreciated!
Used to be great, company LIES 1/5
The heart rate monitor was amazing and the only feature worth $10 a month. It really helped me. Unfortunately the company decided to discontinue it and lie to customers by placing the blame on Apple. Apple did not make changes to the Apple Watch to stop the functionality... Kardia removed it with the July 2019 update. I will no longer recommend or support this company.
Can’t export EKG to Health app. Useless. 1/5
I bought the new KardiaMobile 6L to have a 6 lead EKG I could add to my health history like my Apple Watch 2 lead ECG. Well it turns out, the only thing this app adds to Apple Health is your heart rate. THAT’S IT. No graphs or other heart data. I returned the device immediately. Garbage.
Great piece of mind. 5/5
Nice to know everything is working right.
Great system 5/5
Accurate readings and peace of mind knowing if you are in normal rhythm. Convenient to use anywhere. Cost effective. Love the download feature so you can show PDFs of readings to my doctor.
Fabulous device 5/5
I have or had AFib. Very good diagnosis which helped me manage the electrophoresis.
I had near fainting spells but doctors did not diagnose them. I captured one on a Kardia recording it turned out I had no heart activity 4 seconds. I had a pacemaker put in based on this analysis. WOW!!!!!!!
Heart Information Station 5/5
My Kardia shows me just what my heart is doing as if I was at my doctor getting an EKG. I have had AFIB for 4 years and it is a great help to be able to take copies of my heart readings to show my doctor when I visit. This device is a must have if you have any heart issues.
The best in its category. 5/5
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.
Dr. Accepted 5/5
Went to my cardiologist yesterday and found that they really accept the results from this small device. My doctor took my phone and seriously scrolled through my history and was better able to see what was going on.
iPhone vs iPad 5/5
By R D Rich
Works great on iPhone. Does not work at all on iPad.
DO NOT BUY-update 1/5
From Terms of Service, “You irrevocably and forever waive any rights you may have regarding your User Content being altered or manipulated in any way that may be objectionable to you. You must accept this when logging in via the internet.
At first you could be somewhat anonymous. No more. They DEMAND access to microphone. They DEMAND PII personal ID information. They make every effort to collect data on you including meds. PB. And more. Just check the news on Facebook and GOOGLE privacy violations before you consider this app because I have to believe they run under radar to sell info to the likes of these companies.
Follow up. Kardia responded and clearly stated they do not sell data. Neither did Facebook, until they were caught. They said microphone was for inaudible signal transmission. Funny, some time ago, I used the EKG monitor with microphone off and it worked fine. My Kardia pad did not change, so I view this as suspicious response.
And now when I try to check heart rythm it let me do it once then said it is sending to pro for review - and I cannot repeat the EKG test or see the results. It is useless. I spent $99 on the Kardia Mobile and now the app does not work. So I say again, DO NOT BUY. If you buy the KadiaMobile your a fool. But that’s just my opinion based on my experience.
Great app, was told Apple is removing the app from Watch 4/5
This is an excellent well thought out app and device. Works much better for me than the Apple Watch app that’s built in. I got an email from AliveCor that Apple is not supporting the app soon and hope that’s false. Until the Health app is as robust as the Kardia app with History, faxing MDs info, etc., that’s a loss, if they remove it.
Great system 5/5
Very helpful in tracking my progress in eliminating my AFIB. Very reassuring in showing that the AFIB has not come back.
Literally saved my life! 5/5
I first began using the Kardia monitor in January 2019 because I was having very occasional moments of slight lightheadedness, almost unnoticeable. I was a little concerned because my mother had a stroke at about my age, and I was already on blood pressure medication. Even though I was feeling fine, I got the Kardia monitor and began using it occasionally. I was getting normal readings, so that put my mind at ease.
Then one day it alerted me that I had Bradychardia (slow heart rate) and few days later “Possible Afib”. At the same time , my lightheaded spells began to occur more frequently, so I began to take my EKG on a more regular basis. I started to notice skipped heartbeats on readings labeled “unclassified “ and could also see a correlation between the skipped beats and my lightheaded moments. One day I had a long pause between beats that covered the width of my phone, so I made an appointment with my cardiologist. He put me on a heart monitor for 7 days, and the first night I wore it, I had a call in the middle of the night. My heart was pausing for as long as 8 seconds and my heart rate had dropped to 20. They told me to go to the ER immediately, because I had a very serious problem. I had to have a pacemaker implanted in my heart that same day.
During those months leading up to that day and even when I walked into the ER, I felt fine. But I could have died in my sleep at any time if that little Kardia monitor had not alerted me that I had a problem. My cardiologist even said that little device saved my life because without it, I wouldn’t have known anything was wrong until it was too late. I am so grateful for this wonderful technology!
Retired RN 1/5
You are so afraid to render an opinion/dx that for the average person this tracing is worthless. As a multi year ICU nurse I can read my own.
By afib charlie
Readings are accurate. Easy to use, convenient and provides reliable information.
Low pulse 2/5
My husband bought this for me when my pulse rate fell to 30, but I had to have a pacemaker and this doesn’t really work.
SUPER calming 5/5
By Bob the broker
This device and support answers a lot of angst.
It works 5/5
By R Lieb
Very accurate I check my afib frequently. Thanks to Kardia I want to hospital for treatment detected Serious abnormal heart rate.
Peace of Mind 4/5
By Juice Ann
Kardia is giving me peace of mind. I have heart, lung problems and costocondritis. My pain presents as a heart attack when the lung surgery, costo, and/or COPD is the true cause. Kardia has let me know the heart is normal, and I have been able to attack the pain from a more knowledgeable position.
What the heck?!? 5/5
By Hal Mighty
Let me get this straight. A person buys Kardia. It WORKS and identifies afib and the person is now complaining they have to pay for a premium service to record and send to his dr? Dude! You’re in afib! The least of your problems is to spring for their subscription service. Pay for the service..get ahead of your afib problem...and continue living! Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face! kardia is a life saver. Now if only they can get the cheapskates to stop being so short sighted.
Anyone home 2/5
By still alive but waiting
I’ve had my monitor about three months. I can never depend on it working. It fails to pick up a signal at least half the time. I’ve changed battery and cleaned with alcohol but still no signal. The worse part is there appears to be no one home on the support side of the project. Forget the phone number. They won’t answer but will direct you to message. Tried the chat line and they said they were too busy...send an email. So I sent 1-2-3 emails about my problem and I’m still waiting to hear from them. Could a person have a heart attack trying to get this device to work?😞
I have become super dependent on this device for its accurate readings and being able to send these readings to my doctor in real time regardless of my location.
Intelligent investment 5/5

Likely saved my life, do to an early and definitive diagnosis of a-fib. A longevity of life enhancing investment !!

I am so happy with cardia device !!! Yes
Well Designed and a easy to Use! 5/5
By Dealia R
Got this in the advice of my cardiologist to monitor AFib. Very easy to use and store data.
Kardia Mobile 5/5
By Bob Wr
This device and app are a God send. It lets you know in 30 seconds whether you are in A-fib.
I showed the device to my cardiologist and he was so impressed that he bought one. He used it extensively, declaring that it was an equivalent to his office unit.
I have since had a cryo-ablation and so far, so good. However, I do use the device and app if I feel a thump to make sure that I’m not in A-fib.
This device and app are a must if you have A-fib.
Best health app 5/5
I’ve been using Kardia for several years now, tracking my arrhythmias for myself and my doctor. It has provided invaluable diagnostic data for my treatment otherwise obtainable only by holter monitor. It has also at times provided peace of mind. Technician readings are rapid and accurate. This is a most helpful app!
Very Good but Could be better 4/5
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.
Backup issue 1/5
If you choose to store data locally and save the $10/month charge for cloud storage, there is no way to back up the data. The data is NOT included in an iTunes encrypted backup to a computer HD.
Best thing to have 5/5
This has helped me so much. I now know when to call my Pulmonologist or head to the ER. This app too has helped millions of people with AFib. Thank you for all the work you’ve put into this ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
What a great heart tracking device
Simple and effective 5/5
By Jose C T
I am proactive in monitoring my heart after cardiac ablation surgery in 2013, in the event of a gradual return of this or any related condition. Gives me confidence in watching my heart health, along with other parameters.
By AFib patient
This app was disappointing in that it did not state anywhere in my reading the cost involved per test. After paying for the equipment I thought from the advertising “I owned my readings and they were for my use to take to my doctor”. I will return my purchase and go with my doctor.
Heart attack? 2/5
I just heard it’s not designed to detect heart attack. Very misleading, and I feel like that part is purposely left out of all the FAQ. It was very hard to find this information. I’m sorry, but that should be big and bold on all marketing and packaging. I don’t have a-fib. I was under the impression it would alert me if I was having a heart attack. Your ads make it seem that way. How can you get a “normal ekg” alert if it doesn’t find heart attacks? That’s bad.
Great device! 5/5
This Kardia app has been a big relief to me, and my family. Incredibly small, easy to take anywhere, and the app is so easy to use. And you get immediate feedback in about 35 sec. And it is feedback I trust for accuracy. My cardiologist recommended it to me because of all my AFIB episodes.
If you are on the fence about purchasing this device, jump in there!
This is a Toy! Free apps can do the same thing! 1/5
You aren’t told when you order this that you are required to pay $10 a month to use it! If your paying a monthly subscription, the device should be free! What a piece of garbage! I have apps that I downloaded for free, that use the camera on the phone to give the same free results. If you want more you pay for it!
Janet Cunliffe 5/5
This little device caught it when I went into A-fib again. However, it does give off false positives. I have learned not to bother the doctor until it has strange readings 3 days in a row.
One of the greatest inventions of all time 5/5
By Alive & Ticking
The ability to record one’s own heart rhythm, track and and analyze recordings and send them to my cardiologist for review is life saving. Over time I have learned what factors precipitate my afib, and when it is coming on, and changed my life to reduce incidents to the degree possible, avoiding another ablation and more serious medications. I have reduced my incidents from 10x/month to 2 or 3. This is a great, life extending invention at the cost of one visit to a cardiologist. Best investment I ever made.- 5 year user.
A-fib Friend 5/5
My Kardia has become my best friend. It confirms for me whether or not I’m in a-fib so I can then track & do what needs to be done. 💖
I’ve been wearing the KardiaBand for 6 months now and hope it’s claim to detect AFIB with 93% accuracy is correct. I have had trouble the last couple months getting the App to consistently start. The support folks say they are aware of and working the problem. But, I’m now on 72 hours waiting for an email confirming our discussion of the problem.
All I want to know is if their confidence it AFIB detection of the apps SmartRythm monitoring is still strong despite the intermittent app starting problem.
New Version Constantly Crashes 2/5
This will be the 5th time I have deleted and reinstalled this app. For some reason after a few uses, it won’t detect the Microphone and shows a dialog box as such. Then the app crashes and won’t come up again. Too bad...after a recent surgery and now A.Fib and Flutter the past day or so I really needed it to work.
Review from user 5/5
I am very pleased with Kardia Mobile, which gives me confidence.
invaluable. my physician likes it too.
Reassuring app 5/5
I have had three AFib episodes, which caused me to purchase this device.
It reassures me when I am unsure whether I am beginning another episode, and I recommend it to anyone with heart issues.
