On launching Instant Heart Rate, the app lets your camera read the color changes which occurs on your fingertip. The color changer are directly linked with your pulse. This helps your Android camera to read and monitor heart rate. This is the same technique which is used in oximeters used by doctors to check the heart rate.
Instant Herat Rate accuracy increases with the devices which have flash light with the camera. If your Android phone is not having a flash light, then expose the camera to good light so that it can easily read the color change and monitor heart rate on your Android phone.

Just keep the tip of your finger on the camera and the app will start reading heart rate with the help of color change. Stop the heart rate reader to note the actual heart rate on your Android.

What’s My Heart Rate:
What’s My Heart Rate is a simple Android app to monitor heart rate on Android. This Android app works in a simple way with the help of face recognition. With the help your device camera, the app detects the current heart rate. Now no need to press your finder tip on your Android camera. Just launch the app, move your Android camera and point to the face of the person for whom you want to know the heart rate. The camera should be placed in such a way that it should focus only the face of the person and the face should fit the app focus area. Wait for a while and the app will start calculating the heart rate. After a while, you will see the result with the calculated heart rate on your Android screen.
Now, you must be thinking that how face recognition can tell you the heart rate. Heart beat causes micro color changes on your face. The app lets your camera read those micro color changes and then the app starts calculating the heart rate on the basis of micro color change on your face. I truly liked the app, as the interface is user-friendly and easy to understand. You don’t have to do any extra efforts to know the heart rate.
The app also comes up with the features to measure breathe rate on Android. Breathe rate is calculated when you have front camera on your Android. I didn’t test the feature to breathe rate as my Android phone does not have front camera. You can check the feature if you have front camera on your Android phone.
