A new app for iPhone and iPad developed by Harvard and MIT researchers, can calculate heart rate by simply gazing at your face. It uses your device’s camera to measure tiny changes in blood flow in your face that occur when your heart beats.Simply line up your image with the displayed target, and the app reports your heart rate within seconds, when used in well lit environment,it’s accurate to within three beats per minute. You can track your heart rate over time and get information about your fitness level and estimated life expectancy. The app is available now on iTunes.

  1. Hi! I’m Sue, and I’m from SlimKicker, a fitness/diet app and website. I found your blog a few days ago and it captured my interest!

    I’m contacting you b/c we’re about to release a fitness tracker (similar to FitBit) early next year, and are looking for bloggers who would be interested in getting 1 for free to review when it is out (negative or positive).

    Would you be interested in doing this? You can email me at: sue (at) slimkicker (com) with ‘Review’ in the email heading if you are.

    In case you don’t know, our website SlimKicker basically turns your fitness/diet goals into a level-up RPG game. The tracker will work with the website, and allow people to track calories burned and number of steps they walk automatically. The more they exercise, the more points they rack up! That’s basically how it will work.

    Anyway, hope to hear back either way…

    – Sue

    • Hi Sue: I am not sure if I can be of any assistance to you because I am disabled with a neurological disorder but if I can I please let me know. Thank you for your visit to my site and all the best with your app. Sincerely Yours Nancy
