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 and get your instant heart rate!
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
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.
I started keeping track of my pulse to monitor my resting heart rate. I read that a resting heart rate more than 10 or 15 bpm above your normal was a sign that you need to take a day off from training.
This is a cool app that I use every day, jbut sometimes multiple readings are more than 10 bpm higher or lower within a few seconds of each other.
