Description

THE ORIGINAL IPHONE HEART MONITOR.

POD TOUCH V2 OWNERS

* Must own Apple headphones with microphone.

* This can be Apple iPhone headphones or new Apple In Ear headphones which have a microphone + volume controls.

HOW IT WORKS

A real heart monitor that uses the inbuilt microphone to hear and detect your heart rate. You can use the microphone on your headphones or the inbuilt microphone at the base of your iPhone 3G to measure your heart rate. Use Heart Monitor to get very accurate heart rate results, find your resting heart rate, track your previous results and use the special Pulse Count mode which helps you take manual pulse counts when you are training.

Because Heart Monitor uses sound to detect heart rates, you can use the iPhone 3G directly over your heart or directly on the pulse in your neck or wrist. Heart Monitor works best in quiet areas. You can get excellent results when using the microphone on your headphone cable.

IPHONE 1G/2G AND IPOD TOUCH V2 OWNERS: You MUST use the headphone cable microphone for Heart Monitor to work. The inbuilt microphone on the older phones are not very sensitive. And iPod Touch V2 does not come standard with any microphone, you must buy the optional Apple Headphones + Microphone.

UPGRADES COMING SOON.

* Email your heart beat graph.

* Storing of all heart beat graphs.

Before buying heart monitor check to see if you can find a pulse point located:

* In your neck just below the start of your jaw.

* Your chest directly over your heart.

* Your wrist inline with the base of your thumb.

4/5 stars

Almost perfect

:
I bought this app knowing its gonna be hard to replace my regular strap based heartrate monitor, and that came to be true. That said, this app is far from being bad, in a quiet room i was getting results close to the ones shown on my expensive Polar monitor (this app was off by about 5 bpm) which is pretty close but, not perfect. Also, its extremely hard to use it in a loud environment (Gym) since the mic from the headset has tendency to pick up all kinds of noise. If you are on a treadmil, running, and at the same time pressing with your finger the headset's mic onto your neck, any motion of the finger will be read as a heartbeat therefore you'll be getting off readings.
All in all, I'm VERY happy with this app, and hoping the future updates will correct and/or improve the current obstacles (low signal levels, noise reduction).

3/5 stars

Mediocre at best

:
This app falls very short of delivering the promised. I am an overweight person and this app almost fails to acknowledge I'm alive, much less to measure anything via microphone. Also, a 10-second timing is not enough for any serious accuracy since, adding possible start and stop one-beat errors, it can produce up to 12-beat discrepancy with 3-4-beat error being almost guaranteed. That's why I believe the count timing should go up to 15, maybe even 20 seconds.

0/5 stars

Not worth it, at all.

:
I purchased this App. to track my Resting Heart Rate - for triathlon, etc. With more than a month of testing, trying, and varying use: the App. fails. I have every confidence I am using it correctly, still, my latest readings were 54, 70, 52, 29, 52 (all taken at lying down, one after another, same place on my chest). In short, the App. is not precise, generally does not match my Polar HRM, and lacks basic functionality (such as ability to average, graph, track, delete readings, etc.) that would make it a useful tool - especially at the rather steep (comparatively) App. price of $3.99. I have free Apps. with far greater functionality. My advice is to save your money; there is better out there. And if you can't find a substitute, a finger on the pulse is better in this case.
