Test your HEART RATE right from your iPhone - unbelievable? Just try it out! Your pulse is racing, your heart is in your mouth: It’s easy to determine your physical or mental condition based on your pulse - and not only when you’re excited. Measure your heart rate when you wake up, after a training session or before your next exam. Runtastic Heart Rate shows you how fast (or slow) your heart is beating at any given moment, no extra devices needed. Your iPhone will do the job. APP FEATURES & BENEFITS: - Measure your heart rate with your iPhone camera - Graphs illustrate your measurements - Different measuring types: resting HR, pre- & post-workout HR, maximum HR - Upload your results to, compare and analyze your measurements by day, week or year - Share your HR measurements in social networks like Facebook & Twitter or via email - Sync HR stats to Apple Health EASY TO USE - Place and lightly hold your (index) finger against the back camera lens and flashlight - Do not press too hard, otherwise blood circulation will be altered and the results could be affected - When using an iPhone or iPad without a flashlight, be sure to take the measurement in a well-lit area (bright daylight works best) - Remain calm and try not to move too much during the measurement, as this can compromise measurement accuracy - Do not measure with cold fingers when the blood circulation is poor EFFICIENT ANALYSIS Your resting heart rate varies depending on your age and training level. A very fit and athletic person has a lower resting HR than someone who’s hardly active. Eager to know if your fitness level has improved? Measure your heart rate on a regular basis and monitor the progress of your resting heart rate. Download the Runtastic Heart Rate App today, check your heart rate regularly and show your friends how cool & calm you remain even when in a seemingly stressful situation!

  • Does not work consistently

    By CarloInTX
    Other heart rate apps seem to read my fingers better. This one is so frustrating. [it looks like it is working, showing a nice rhythm on screen, but then tells me how to put my finger, and no results given/saved. I give up. Deleting, and using something that works consistently-there are several]
  • Inaccurate

  • Have to log in to use it

    By Tbone73747
    I just want to check my heart rate quickly and easily, not sign up for an account or sign in. That’s too much to ask for, apparently.
  • app deleted

    i deleted the app after the update today. they only allow you to take 3 measurements a day unless you upgrade to the paid version.
  • Not that great with newer phones...

    By Surreal33
    I used to love this app, until I upgraded to my 8+. The way the camera flash & lens are designed on the phone quite different from my 5S (wider), which isn’t an issue. The issue seems to be the app not getting a reading. I make sure my finger is covering them both properly, but still keep getting the instructions pop up. Not sure what the problem is. I have small hands; not enough of the tip of my finger? Not much I can do about that with a bigger phone. Perhaps some software tweaks are in order.
  • Disappointed

    By Ghhefrenchie
    I try to use this app without success 1 every 10 try its working my finger is well place on the flash and the camera but nothing happen most of my time. It’s using the battery alright , I wanted to upgrade to pro but not anymore . I was happy with the pro road bike and pedometer still happy with it . May be need improvement?
  • hard to use

    By Juan Veiga
    i’ve used other similar apps but this one I have sometimes to try 5 times before I get any results. Looks like the app can’t handle iphone x dual camera. This make the app very annoying and time consuming to use.
  • Won't work without an account

    By Sarcasm The Elf
    Downloaded the app and was unable to use any features without first creating an account or linking it to facebook. Is there any justifiable reason need an account and password in order to access something as simple as a basic heart rate app?
  • Not Finger Friendly

    By Hoosierben
    Please improve the finger to camera interaction for iPhone X customers. Multiple tries always necessary. Thanks
