The food sensitivity feature uses the built in camera as a heart rate sensor and does not require additional hardware.
The latest release of SweetBeat has three main components: HRV For Training, stress monitoring and weight loss.
HRV For Training: In competitive sports, improved performance is often affected by alternating periods of intensive training with periods of relative rest. SweetBeat measures HRV, an objective measure of your body’s response to each workout.
Stress Monitoring and Management:
With SweetBeat, you can see your stress levels in real time, giving you the ability to take action to reduce stress. If your chosen stress threshold is reached, SweetBeat’s Relax screen prompts you with a deep breathing screen that includes calming images.
When you are stressed, the body releases stress hormones that cause inflammation. Inflammation prevents weight loss, counteracting your efforts to lose weight through diet and exercise. Food sensitivities can also create inflammation and prevent shedding excess pounds.
SweetBeat’s weight-loss feature is based on detecting food sensitivities that may contribute to low level inflammation. If you are sensitive to certain foods, you may not experience symptoms, though your body reacts by elevating your heart rate after eating an offending food. This inflammation tells the body to hang onto stored fat to combat whatever stress caused the hormonal release.
Using either SweetBeat’s camera sensor or a compatible heart monitor, SweetBeat monitors your pulse three times after eating and assigns either a red “X” (sensitive) or a green checkmark (not sensitive).

Helpful App but...
This app is very helpful when paired with the 60beat chest strap and when it is working. It is giving me a window into my health that I had not been able to quantify before.
However, it is very prone to crashes on the charts and inconsistent ability to find the chest strap on its own via Bluetooth.
The last update was October 2013 which says to me it is not being well maintained given that some of these bugs have been in a long time.
I like looking at my data everyday
It makes me look at my heart beat in a new way. I never knew how stressed out I got during work until I started using this app. Now I do my breathing exercises and my stress levels go down. It's nice to know my HRV so I can keep it high. I've done a lot of research on HRV and I know how important it is. The app Is really easy to use. It requires a hrm duh!!
This is an incredible app to figure out if you are stressed in life or an over trained athlete. You can't beat the price (NOTE you will need an additional chest HR strap that is $70 but that can be used with may other fitness apps)
