    If the watch is wireless, then no. Unless it used bluetooth or some kind of Wifi signal, it wouldn't be possible.

    There are several apps that use the camera to detect your heart rate to a certain accuracy.

    I tried an app that could supposedly get your heart rate by putting your finger on the camera and it will turn on the flash. It takes forever for it to find the beat for me at least, I only tried it one time inside, I thought of it as a novelty type thing. But if you're out in the sun who knows it may work better.

    Yeah, it is more of a gimmick. Still a cool novelty and I use it to show friends, but def. not something I would rely on.
