The Verdict

All reviewed apps have a user rating of at least 4.7 (out of 5 stars). Each app has its unique strengths and weaknesses. SmartBP is perfect for those who want a simple, easy-to-use BP tracker. Heartify is ideal for users who want health insights and mood tracking. InPulse is great for those who want detailed graphs and statistics. Cardiogram is suitable for users who want AI-powered insights. BreathNow is perfect for those who want a broad set of calming and exercise techniques for BP, pulse and stress reduction plus powerful insights, notifications and reminders. 

IMPORTANT

All reviewed apps require an external BP monitor to take BP readings. This is also true for all other apps. The technology which would allow users to take blood pressure readings on their phones without a BP monitor is not available yet. If your BP monitor has a Bluetooth connection, you will be able to link it to your iPhone or Android phone and then BP readings will be automatically downloaded into your Apple Health or Android Health Connect accounts. 


The Bottom Line

When it comes to blood pressure apps, there's no one-size-fits-all solution. Consider your needs, preferences, and budget before making a decision. Whether you're looking for a simple tracking app or a comprehensive health companion, there's an app on this list for you. Happy tracking, and remember to take care of that heart of yours! In full disclosure: our team has created a BreathNow app and we would love to get your feedback. Try it for free on iPhone or Android.
