Garmin has launched integration with the Cardiogram application for both Apple iOS and Google Android. The Cardiogram app provides advanced insights based on data from the Garmin wearable devices and offers key metrics and feedback following activities recorded via Garmin connect.
Cardiogram partners with the Department of Cardiology at the University of California to combine data from optical heart rate sensors and DeepHeart, an artificial intelligence-based algorithm developed by Cardiogram, to detect major health conditions. There are also options within the Cardiogram application to take part in future research projects.
Through multiple studies, DeepHeart has so far demonstrated the ability to detect four medical conditions – atrial fibrillation, sleep apnea, hypertension, and diabetes – with results validated by the medical community and published in journals such as JAMA Cardiology.
Garmin Cardiogram Integration
From 9th August 2018 owners of Garmin devices featuring optical heart rate can download Cardiogram from the App Store and Google Play store. The ever-expanding Garmin fitness segment develops technologies to enhance and promote healthy and active lifestyles. Garmin Health provides enterprise solutions that leverage Garmin wearables and the high-quality sensor data they produce for use in the corporate wellness, population health, and patient monitoring markets.
For iOS users Cardiogram integration comes via the Apple Health application. The data updates periodically and Cardiogram promise to increase frequency in the near future.
