We have covered a ton of heart rate monitor apps on this blog. There are plenty of sophisticated ones around. Some of them even allow you to use 3rd party sensors to get better reading. But did you know that some apps can actually measure your heart rate using your iPhone / iPad camera? Here are 4 heart rate monitors that do just that:
Cardiio: it analyzes your face and measures your pulse without needing any additional hardware. You get touch-free measurements with this.
Vital Signs Camera: an innovative application that measures your heart and breathing rate from a distance. It measures your heart rate from the changes in color of your face.
Cardiograph: an elegant tool that uses your device’s camera to take pictures of your fingertip and calculate your heart’s rhythm.
Heart Fitness: another tool that uses your phone’s camera to measure your heart rate. Just put your finger on your phone’s camera and this takes care of the rest.
