Health Apps on Smart Watches – Pulse Rate Monitoring
One of the odd criteria folks are using to evaluate smart watches these days is whether or not it will capture your heart rate, or pulse. Apple, of course, has taken it to the level where you can send your heartbeat to your boss by accident rather than your sweetie, but that’s Apple — always the extreme. For the raw pulse number, all you need is a smart watch capable of downloading a heart rate app (like the ZGPAX S8 pictured here) and a camera in the watch. This video shows you how it all works. By the way, this heart rate app works great on any smartphone as well. Check it out.
