What is the Inner Balance app? The Inner Balance™ app is an innovative approach to improving wellness through training, education and self-monitoring. It helps you change your reaction to stress, gain insights in your shifting moods and create a more positive outlook on life, while tracking your progress, journaling your accomplishments and sharing it with others.
How does it work? Simply plug the HeartMath Sensor for iOS® onto your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod® Touch and connect the ear piece to your ear. Tap in the space below the breath pacer to start your session. Follow the pacer and the prompts below to help you moderate your breathing, activate a positive emotion and restore your Inner Balance.
What devices does the Inner Balance App work on? The Inner Balance App works on iPod Touch (3rd & 4th Generation), iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, IPhone 5 (requires the Lightning adaptor), iPad, iPad 2, IPad 3rd Generation and iPad Mini.
When will this App be available on Android? Do stay tuned as we will have an Android version that we'll offer next year. If you don't have an iOS device remember we do have excellent products that we continue to offer, the emWave2 and emWave Desktop are available, affordable and easy to use.
Why do I need to use an ear sensor? The Inner Balance App uses an ear sensor to capture your Heart Rate Variability (HRV) data. This data gives the most accurate, in-the-moment reading of your heart rhythm patterns.
Do I have to wear the ear sensor all of the time? You do not need to wear the ear sensor all of the time just when you are running a session. You do not need to use the ear sensor if you want to make notes in the journal or review your progress.
Do you have a finger sensor that will work for the mobile app? Yes, we do have a finger sensor that works with the app that can be ®purchased at the HeartMath store www.heartmathstore.com for $25.00.
What is the difference between the emWave2® and the Inner Balance app? The Inner Balance is an app that is specifically designed for the iPhone, iPad or the IPod Touch. The emwave2 is a portable, handheld device that gives you the capability to run as well as record sessions. It includes a software component that can be used on both Windows and Mac platforms. In addition to tracking your progress, the emWave2 offers you several applications to help you sustain coherence. The software can also be used in combination with the additional coherence games: Dual Drive and Tropical Heat. A comparison chart of the features of the Inner Balance Trainer versus the emWave2 can be viewed here:https://www.heartmathstore.com/category/tech-comparison
Can you download sessions into your computer? No, not at this time. If you would like to use our products on your computer, we suggest you try the emWave Desktop or emWave2.
What is the difference between Inner Balance and the emWave Desktop? The emWave Desktop is the complete computer software version of the emWave technologies. It allows you to create multiple user profiles and track the progress of each individually. Additionally, it has several applications to help you learn to sustain coherence. The software can also be used in combination with the additional coherence games: Dual Drive and Tropical Heat.
Does the Inner Balance App save my sessions? Can I delete sessions? Your sessions will be automatically saved so you can easily track your progress and return to past sessions to add notes in your journal. You can also delete sessions.
Can I share my sessions with my friends? Absolutely! You can share aspects of your session, but not all of the session data.
What should I feel? Or ‘what does coherence feel like? Coherence is a state of internal synchronization between the heart, breath and the head. People experience coherence as a sense of inner calm and balance, an increased focus, while others experience coherence as a more relaxed state.
How long do I practice before it has any effects? While everyone is different and some people have more inner stress than others, most people experience some results within the first couple of weeks of regular practice. The effects of coherence will increase the more often you use your Inner Balance Trainer.
Can I use the camera instead of buying the ear sensor? The camera does not work on the Inner Balance App. You will have to purchase the sensor in order to pick up your pulse and run sessions.
What is the science behind the Inner Balance App? Synchronizing your breathing with your heart rhythms while focusing on positive emotions has been shown to reduce the negative effects of stress, improve relaxation, and build resilience with just a few minutes of daily use. The Inner Balance app incorporates our emWave technology to show your heart rhythm pattern (HRV). This, along with a breathing pacer and other feedback, train you to change your heart rhythm pattern to a healthier, coherent state.

The inner balance trainer is a great tool for giving myself and my clients feedback on my/their coherence levels with heart and brain.

Since arriving a few weeks
Since arriving a few weeks agoThe HeartMath InnerBalance Trainer for IOS (Lightning Sensor) has been a revelation!
As someone who has meditated for the last 10 years and experimented with various types of mindfulness practices, this has been the first time that I've been able to quantitatively and qualitatively track improvements in my mindfulness practice.
A few key points worth mentioning:
1. The real-time audio/neuro feedback to track 'HRV/coherence' is highly responsive and accurate. I have an OURA ring which also tracks HRV but what I've noticed is that it isn't as accurate vs the InnerBalance, nor does it track and measure real-time coherence and provide feedback during the session. In contrast, with the InnerBalance it can immediately detect when my attention has started to drift and will prompt a audio tone to alert me to re-focus my awareness.
2. The Inner Balance app itself (free download via App Store) is well designed from a UX perspective and the gamification elements have made my meditation practice a lot more enjoyable.
3. The device itself is simple, easy to use and portable. You simply clip it onto your ear and away you go. The only point worth noting is that if you wish to connect headphones (I recommend this instead of using the built-in iPhone speaker) then you will need to use bluetooth headphones (i.e AirPods or similar) unless you're using an older iPhone that have the the standard audio jack.
Last but not least, the buying experience on the website and customer support through Optimoz was excellent and the product was delivered quicker than I expected through AustraliaPost given the delays brought on by COVID. Will definitely buy again in future.

Love it. Really great to
Love it. Really great to see what triggers my coherence to go out of sync and how I can use my breath and awareness to come back to coherence
