    Results are displayed on the screen of BPM Core and sent via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth in the Health Mate app. Note that you need to take 5 measurements in order to get your first heart sounds recording.


  • You can choose to take a blood pressure measurement using the "Start" mode or recording an ECG using the "ECG" mode. You can switch from one mode to another by pressing the button of BPM Core and swiping the light trail on the right part of BPM Core until “Start” or "ECG" appears on the screen.
    Note that if you are using the "ECG" mode, you will not be able to take a blood pressure measurement.
  • If you did not place your hand on the metal tube (electrode), BPM Core did not record ECG and stethoscope signal (heart sounds measurements). BPM Core will only record and display blood pressure readings.
  • If your heart rate is below 50 bpm ECG recordings will be inconclusive.
  • At present, ECG recordings are not available on Health Mate Web.
