In this guide, we will provide step by step instructions on how to measure your heart rate using various methods available on iPhones. So get ready to learn everything there is to know about measuring your pulse electronically like a tech-savvy astronaut.

Checking Your Heart Rate with Apple Watch

If you are lucky enough to own an Apple watch along with an iPhone (and probably a MacBook too), knowing that it can be used for something important may make all those splurges worth it. Here’s how you can use the watch app:

  1. Launch the Heart Rate app from its home screen.
  2. Place one finger on either the Digital Crown or sensor plate located underneath the display.
  3. Wait for 15 seconds while keeping still and voila! The heart rate reading will appear right before your eyes as if by magic.

Using Health App (No Apple Watch Needed)

Oh wait, don’t panic if you do not have an extra hundred dollars lying around for buying yourself that fancy wrist accessory called Apple Watch.

The Health app built into every modern day iOS device which piggybacks upon sensors present inside each phone itself.Now keep calm, grab some hot chocolate amd follow these steps:

  1. Locate & open up Health app from home screen(icon shown here).
    H icon

2.Scroll through list of health metrics until locating ‘Heart’ option.Clicking this metadata displays various statistics related to your heart health.

3.Tap over “Show all data” on the heart rate page. From here, you will be able to observe historical graphs and averages of the last few measurements as well.

Using Camera & Flash

If pressing a button isn’t really your cup of tea, don’t worry my dear friend as iPhones got more modernized through time ,so we could simply snap our fingers or in this case just click a photo for measuring heartrate(which is almost equally cool).

1.Firstly head down to the App store and find out an app ‘Cardiograph’,made by company atlantbh d.o.o.

2.Open up said app and follow instructions provided there hit start>Raise finger>Hold until process completes- After that patient must see their heart rate on side where previously text ‘Measuring’ was written.

Now some clever person might ask why these measurements are not totally reliable in terms of theoretical accuracy at times.Well,talking scientifically iPhone’s camera flash emits a sequence of dim light flashes which causes blood inside human body parts especially fingertips(to show example)to turn brighter red from normal color they have when no pulse is detected.Then iPhone essentially takes many photos capturing magnitude,dimness etc.for calculating frequency of human heartbeat ultimately.Fascinating,eight?

Just For Fun:Try This Out

An easter egg (not literal one) feature present within measured results screen lets user even share screenshot via multiple social media platforms displaying ones own deduced mantra.Can I offer anybody shameless self publicity right now?

Heart Rate Monitors(Bluetooth)

Heart rate monitors like Polar H10 chest strap can also connect with iphones effectively.Lets go chug along:

1.Check if Bluetooth connectivity is turned “ON” both devices(iPhone&Monitor).
2.Place strap onto desired area close to the heart(i.e Chest).
3.Download polar beat app onto iphone via apple store.
4.Open said app and authorize bluetooth permission when asked.

Congrats! Now whenever you wear the monitor to track pulse during exercise or workout, graphs displaying heart rates on your phone screen will be displayed immediately.Oh isn’t technology an enabler!


What is a healthy heart rate?

A normal resting heart rate for adults can vary from 60-100 bpm(beats per minute), this range tends to narrow down with a physically fit individual showing lower rhythmic counts respectively.

Similarly for children, it varies widely by age.Readers are recommended discussing their limits with Doctor in context of personalised situation.

Is there any known limitations regarding measuring Heart Rate using iPhone?

Some scenarios could result in erratic detection:
• Finger being positioned improperly over camera lens/sensor.
• Phone operating under artificially high temperature(due to environmental factors).
• Presence of tattoos around the body region where measurement is being done (due to colors).

Measuring your own heartbeat at home is not only easy but also futuristic.All in all,the tale ends here.I hope our amusing yet informative words succeeded cheerfully making dearest reader understand various ways monitoring one’s personal heartrate.This guide has given readers like yourselves actionable insights capable of taking care of inner physiology professionally.High time we give these devices much applause,don’t lalalala?
