Welltory: Heart Rate Monitor - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

The Welltory App is one of the most reputable health tracking and guidance apps, with 5 million users across 130+ countries and over 60 000 5-star ratings. Welltory has over 400 000 MAU and 30 000 active subscribers – about half use our app with their Apple Watch. Arizona State University and University College London have used the Welltory App as a scientific research tool. Welltory has been featured as “App of the Day” by Apple and reviewed by widely-read publications like Techcrunch and Men's Health. We have raised $6.6M in investments so far.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Heart Rate Variability Measurements

Heart rate variability measurements interpret your heartbeat data for insights about your stress, energy, and even your ability to focus – use them in the morning to check how much you can put on your plate for the day, or just check in with your body at any time.

You can take heart rate variability measurements by putting your finger over the camera and flash, or use an Apple Watch – it takes heart rate variability measurements automatically when you’re at rest, but you can also set the Breathe app (Or Breathe in the Mindfulness app, depending on your watchOS version) to three minutes and launch it to measure whenever you like.

Welltory is a team that consists of developers and scientists who together have created a healthcare app designed to help people prevent illness through personalized advice. We are exploring solutions on how to provide individual, personalized healthcare advice by conducting relevant research.

Arizona State University and University College London have used the Welltory App as a scientific research tool. It has been featured as ‘App of the day’ by Apple and is well-reputed through Techcrunch, Men’s Health, and many other tech journals.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

The interviewee chose not to answer this question.

How long have you been working on this app?

Almost 7 years.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

We turn your data into real health insights and guidance.

Millions of people use apps and fitness trackers to collect data about the way they live, work, and move. This data is extensive, but hard to make sense of. People see steps and calories burned, but don’t know if it’s enough to improve their health. They track their heart rate, but what do the trends and changes really tell them?

That’s why we created Welltory — an app that analyzes your data comprehensively and uses it to guide you to better health.

Our heartbeat analysis is based on decades of scientific research, and all health guidance provided by Welltory science-backed.

We also conduct research to create new opportunities for personalized health guidance:

1. We publish research papers in which we examine aggregated user data.
2. We research our users' data and create unique new features that help them stay healthy, sleep better, and work out smarter.

Our business model

We have a direct sales business model. Welltory is free to download and use, but a Welltory Pro subscription unlocks access to more features. There are two subscription options: (check out the pricing here)

– Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renewal is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period

– Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period

– Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off in the user's Account Settings after purchase

– Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Unlike fitness apps, we don't push our users to make drastic changes. Unlike medical apps, we work before it's too late.

Health apps typically fall into one of two categories – apps like blood pressure journals, which address specific health problems for people who are already sick, or apps like meditation guides, which provide content for health-conscious people who already know what they’re looking for. Welltory is the only app with a holistic approach that adapts to each individual user’s health needs and lifestyle.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

In the next few years, we hope that Welltory’s cutting-edge technology, simplicity of use, and beautiful design will win the hearts of millions, making our world a healthier, happier place.

The next big release will be soon this year and include our new app for Apple Watch.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Download the app and if you love it, share it with your friends, family and loved ones.
