It detects if the heart rate shows any signs of cardiac arrhythmias, and if the heart rhythm is stable. The tracked data is believed to be clinically accurate and may be shared with a professional for further advice. Wearing it both day and night can help the circularist to correlate the data using machine learning.

Circular also seems to be extremely effective when tracking sleep. It can tell the user how much time they spend in each sleep phase – light sleep, deep sleep, REM sleep, and when they are awake. More importantly, it also calculates how efficiently the user has slept. The app shares data on several important parameters to check sleep quality, including time taken to fall asleep, sleep debt, actual sleep time, sleep disturbances, etc. It also provides silent vibrations for users in their light sleep phase to wake them up if they wish, without disturbing their surroundings.
