According to recent comments made by one of the company’s co-founders, Brandon Ballinger, the Cardiogram application has been shown to be rather successful. Out of the 250,000 people that downloaded it to test it out, approximately 100,000 utilize it on a daily basis.
Your heart rate data is organized by the application, which then provides you with greater detail as well as historical trends. Your heart rate throughout the day is displayed in the Timeline tab, along with a more specific perspective for your exercises and a specialized user interface to monitor any spikes that may be caused by stress, nutrition, or exercise. The Metrics page will show you how your activity level, resting heart rate, and total sleep time have changed over the course of the past few weeks or months.
Recently, Cardiogram formed a partnership with the Department of Cardiology at the University of California, San Francisco, with the goal of identifying more severe medical disorders. DeepHeart is the name of the artificial intelligence algorithm that they developed in order to detect atrial fibrillation, sleep apnea, hypertension, and diabetes through the use of the application. Users who rely on Garmin can now participate in this. As of today, they can choose to take part in Cardiogram and UCSF Cardiology’s mRhythm research project, joining Apple Watch users in doing so.
“A significant number of users have requested that Cardiogram support Garmin wearables.” Johnson Hsieh, Co-founder of Cardiogram, says, “By immediately connecting through to the Garmin Health API, Cardiogram has access to a huge range of advanced analytics that these devices produce.”

“Garmin gadgets are fantastic because they provide us with appropriate values in full definition,” and “the more precise DeepHeart becomes, the more level of detail Garmin products provide.”
When you link your fitness band to Garmin Connect from now on, the Cardiogram app will automatically receive the data that your wearable generates. Download instructions for the app can be found for iPhone users. You can also download the application from the Google Play Store.
