Heart Rate Monitor

Estamos ante la aplicación más bonita de todas y mejor adaptada a iOS 7, tanto que parece nativa del sistema; lo malo es que es de pago. Podremos obtener estadísticas en forma de gráfica de nuestro pulso día tras día , compartir la información en Facebook o clasificar los distintos resultados en función de la actividad que estemos realizando en cada momento.

Yesterday, the new Samsung Galaxy S5 was presented to the masses, whose two great novelties were the inclusion of the fingerprint sensor, already present in the iPhone 5s months ago, and which many considered useless -until the presentation of Samsung-. Another of the great protagonists was the heart rate sensor, which is capable of telling us the beats of our heart , which the iPhone does not need, or not? .

But let’s not get carried away with Samsung’s marketing techniques. This so-called new sensor forces us to put our finger on the LED flash and the S Health application takes care of the pulse. Well, it seems that the technique is much more rudimentary than we imagined .

And yes, applications of this type already appeared when the iPhone 4 came on the market, taking advantage of its flash. When we put our finger on the camera, the flash was able to make the light pass through our finger and the variation of intensity determines our blood pulse, being the application able to know approximately our pulses. In the same way, we could do the same with flash phones and Android applications of the time.

So if now that it’s back in fashion to take our pulse with the phone, you want to try some apps , here are some of the best ones on the App Store:

Heart Beat Rate

Like all the apps we see in this collection, Heart Beat Rate uses our iPhone’s camera as a heart rate monitor. Thanks to an image analysis, tracks the blood flow in real time, and gives us a direct measurement of our pulse . As you imagined, you only have to cover the camera with your fingertip, and the application will give us the heart rate while displaying the pulse on a graph.
