What’s My Heart Rate amazingly works. I compared What’s My Heart Rate with a running heart rate monitor connected around my chest. What’s My Heart Rate was accurate to within 2 – 3 beats per minute. To get an accurate reading, make you are using it in a well lit environment and hold the camera in front of your face as steady as possible. It may take a while to start reading your heart rate.
What’s My Heart Rate should be mainly used as a novelty. There are other heart rate monitor apps that provide more functions, like the Instant Heart Rate app. What’s My Heart Rate measure allows you to share your heart rate measurement via email or other social networking site. Though there’s no way to save your heart rate measurements.
Though What’s My Heart Rate may not be the easiest to use or have the most functions of the heart rate monitor apps available to Android, it’s pretty cool to be able to measure your heart rate using a picture of your face.
