The Cardiogram app for the Apple Watch can give you a detailed report about your heart rate with graphs and allows you to export the data as a PDF for your doctor. The new update to the Cardiogram app brings a new sleeping BPM feature that helps in monitoring your body's response to symptoms of flu and coronavirus. It is worth pointing out that the Apple Watch cannot detect the virus. The latest update instead uses the “Sleeping BPM” feature to monitor your sleeping heart rate. If you are suffering from any symptoms of the flu, it can compare the data with your resting heart rate. It may be able to point out how your heart is responding to any illnesses your body might be experiencing.

"Cardiogram's new Sleeping BPM feature can help users become more aware of how their body is responding to symptoms of the flu or other illnesses including COVID-19," Cardiogram's co-founder Johnson Hsieh told Apple Insider

The team cautions that the new feature is not intended to diagnose COVID-19 or the flu and should not be used as a replacement for medical diagnostic tests. "Rather, we're providing users with an additional tool to become more aware of how flu-like symptoms may be affecting their body through their heart rate patterns,” Hsieh said.
