HOW IT WORKS
Sleep Cycle heart rate measures the flow of blood in your fingertip with the built in camera by illuminating your finger with the flash. This enables a quick and accurate result. All you have to do is to hold your fingertip still for a few seconds!
Sleep Cycle heart rate will only work on devices that have a camera flash available, so you'll need to have at least an iPhone 4 or an iPod Touch 5th gen for the app to work properly.
What's New in Version 1.2.2
Minor bugfixes and improvements
Good but would like custom note option
Revised: Within the same day of contacting the developer about my requests listed below, he contacted me within 2 hours. He was professional, eager to help, wanted clarification on my suggestions and asked not only were my immediate concerns about the app, but what other suggestions might I have to help improve the app both short and long term. This developer stands confidently behind his mission to get the best product to his users! I can't wait to see what future updates will provide and I will watch for any related apps from this developer knowing it will be money well spent! Kudos to this app and team for truly caring about each and every customer!!
This app seems to be fairly consistent, although I have no other heart rate device to compare it to. If you turn on notes option there only a few preset options you can choose from. This app would be much more useful if you could enter custom notes like the sleep cycle app. The options are too generic to be of any use. Wish I wouldn't have paid for it.
Seems to work
So I haven't tested this side-by-side with a trusted heart rate sensor (other than my fingers), but the readings seem accurate and are consistent. Out of about 100 readings I've only had one that was clearly wrong, which when my heart was beating very, very fast. Other fast readings have been successful.
Very cool to be able to measure this with my phone whenever I want. Incredibly creative use of iPhone hardware!
Having a fun, easy way to record a vital piece of your health information is handy and convenient. Being able to add your own personal notes is a plus too. I take Adderall when needed and being able to see where my heart rate is at is extremely important.
