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
So much more potential
Why don't you pull in heart rate data from the Apple Health app? My Apple Watch takes a reading almost every ten minutes. I have lots of data points in the health app but it's kind of useless because it's not organized or in a user friendly format. You could take all of these readings and give great readings and feedback to the user. You would even be able to categorize the heart rate data because workout heart rate data points are seconds apart. This would let you know heart rate during workouts, heart rate after the workout out and resting heart rate. Lots of potential!
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!
Accurate and Easy to Use
I wanted to have a heart monitor that I could use at the gym with one hand and still have my fit bit counting steps with my other hand. This works beautifully. I've also compared it with the heart monitor on the treadmill, (both hands needed) and the measurements were almost identical. Recommended.
