    Ya your better off just checking your own heart rate but this app ranks up there with the useless but really cool apps.

    Definitely cool, but also not sure about it's accuracy as it was telling me my resting heart rate was in the upper 50's. Something tells me that may be a little low?

    Even if it isn't that accurate I am still amazed, I just cant work out how it would work :thinking: wow.

    Agreed. I got it the day I got my SF but I seriously question the accuracy

    i dont understand how you guys are questioning it's accuracy. its pretty darn close.

    let it stabilize and once you get a steady reading, take your own heart rate (old school 2 finger on wrist style). count for beat for 15 sec then x 4 to get beats/min.

    see what you get

    It was spot on the first time using it, but hasn't given me a reading since :-(

    There are also bluetooth heart rate monitors. You have to buy hardware (the chest strap) but they work great when exercising. There are several apps that can use the ones from Zephyr called the HxM. They run $99 but each app developer has a coupon code that will give you $5 off. This also goes to support the individual app. The apps that I know of are:

    Heart Rate Monitor (my app)
    Endomondo
    Sportstracklive

    Disclaimer: I'm the author of the first app listed.
