They are absolutely not clear about it taking 24 hours to get you the first reading. The tons of negative comments have me very concerned about product longevity and actual support quality. 99% of what i see in recent comments are support won't answer me and the thing died in the first year as was deemed out of warranty. I've had the thing for 30 minutes and already have big buyers remorse.
App works for me and my cardiologist. However, it uses more background data than any app on my phone. I can think of no good reason for this.
You have to buy a 99 dollar ekg to use it
Takes too long to start up. Sometimes I feel my heart rhythm skew, which usually lasts about 20 seconds. It usually takes me less than 1 minute to log in to my phone and start the Kardia app. But it takes too long for the app to start recording. Sometimes, 3-5 minutes. And then sometimes it drops the connection. Then, I have to wait another 2-3 minutes to start recording again. By then, my heart rate is back to normal and I'm too upset to continue. Also, upon app install, I understood that a real doctor was going to read my initial EKG. After submitting it, I never heard from them.
This company is a joke! Do not trust your life with these clowns. There is a good reason why they hide behind recording and will not return your calls! This is a medical scheme, nothing more! I am telling my doctor to send me back to CardioNet! I am not gonna die because of a sham medical company that hides from it's customers! You have been warned people. Stick with the tried and true monitoring companies. Maybe we will live longer!
Was absolutely a technological marvel for first thirty days.. then they cripple your $100 device by only allowing you to realtime view ECG.. no way to save it to your phone locally under your profile Then they want to extort $10 per month from you to allow you to save it. what a rip off. Going to see if I can get my money back... It would be like Google telling you that you can only view photos when you take pictures with your phone and not allowed to save it locally unless you pay them $10 per month...
Improvements and bug fixes.
