I was skeptical- being a nurse I thought yah right! So I tried it at work with a monitor. It worked! Very very happy!
Place the tip of your index finger on phone’s camera and in a couple of seconds your Heart Rate will be shown.
A real-time chart will show your every heart beat.
It uses your phones built-in camera to track color changes on the fingertip that are directly linked to your pulse. This is the same technique that medical pulse oximeters use.
Now you have a chance to track your fitness and health every-time with just your phone.
Your resting heart rate gives you a view into your hearts fitness. The fitter you get the lower your heart rate will be.
✓ Heart rate measurements
✓ Real time PPG graph - see your every heart beat
✓ Cardio workout monitoring
NOTE: Works best on devices with flash. On other devices it has to be used with good lighting.

Shows 48-49 when I measure it manually (& accurately) at 53-54. Easier, faster,more accurate to use a fingertip & watch. Uninstalled. DroidX.

Works great, although it requires very good lighting and for me to stand still after my run.

Occasionally this would work, but generally was off by 30-150 bpm. I'm better off taking my own pulse.

Just kept measuring and never gave me a reading.

Worked great the first time I used it didn't work again. If you sort out the glitches I would re-install. Galaxy Ace.

As an EMT, works really good w/ accurate readings on t-mobile G2, tried on several ppl and consistent w/manual readings, but like w/most pulse oximetry, do not move your finger or else you will get a false reading

Bhahaha my table has a resting heart rate of 188bpm. What crap, instant delete!

No "flash" with LG Ally. Needs quite a bit of ambient light to get a reading.

Not accurate at all. It just jumps all over the spectrum. Better off just taking it manually. Takes 30 seconds. I trust feel over this.
