  • Totally inaccurate & unreliable

    by adougj

    I have been using this for a couple of weeks. I compared the readings with one of those finger pulse/oxi meters that doctors are now using. The heart rate measurements were not the same. Sometimes very different. I also compared with a BP cuff. Same inaccuracies. The graph of the heart beats is also totally off. It appears to be fake. I have tried contacting the vendor and they have not responded. STAY AWAY FROM THIS

    I measured my heart rate same time with this app and and taking reading in a traditional way. App gave me somewhat correct reading once. Other readings were incorrect, example 60/89. This app is not giving proper readings. But I know that camera can be used for this purpose, if it is good enough. Idea is that camera registers rhythm from tiny blood vessels on skin. So without proper light and good camera this is not recommended. Maybe good idea is to use clean finger too.

  • by Leo Hartley

    total pile of ****, 4 times I tried to get it to read my heart rate and every time it kept telling me to put my fingertip over the camera. it couldn't read my HR even though I have used other apps that can. I wouldn't recommend this app even if they paid me to.

  • by Marley Scrooge

    does not deserve a star. i covered my camera with a masking tape to test its accuracy on detecting bpm and it gave 90 bpm with no error pop up. didnt know my masking tape was alive, cool! how can you trust an app who couldnt even detect a living from a non living. i tried it in other areas (dark/bright room) and the reading was consistent to 80-90bpm. good job on deceiving tho. google is stupid. .... and greedy.

  • by Ernesto Paul Fernandez Diaz

    inaccurate..I have compared it with a finger sensor as well as my pulse..and it is not accurate whatsoever.

  • by Joyce Fingland

    During spells of bigeminy it complains that it is unable to get a reading and you should make sure that your finger is covering the camera. It works fine when all is normal but that isn't what you want to record.

  • Misleading... fake waveforms

    by kingoblues

    Accurate to take pulse, but the waveforms are fake. I think it was misleading to make it look like you are getting more data back than you are. Want my money back.

  • Loud and inaccurate

    by BlooCube

    What’s with all the beeping when the volume is off? Took 4 resting readings in a row and they increased from 68 to 85. Used a real monitor and got a consistent 70. If you have heart issues and/or need to check your heart in public, this is not the app for you.

  • by Robert King

    Despite what the developer says, this does not support smart watches, which makes this a waste of time.

  • by annmarie lindon

    Thought it was nice til i noticed it was showing beats even when my hands were no where near it. Disappointed.

  • Major flaw

    by PippinSays

    It show the heart rate ok, but it will only save it if the heart rate is regular and normal rate. I want to show my doctor when rate was irregular and jumped from fast to slow. It is worthless at this point.

  • by Sourav Hazra

    As per this app, my table has a heart rate of 85bpm. I don't know whether this app is a scam or my table has a heart🤔🤔🤔

  • by Robduino Ash

    JUST measures heart rate with no analysis, then tries to track my location for NO REASON. Why does almost every app try to steal all my data??? Uninstalled.

  • I’m sorry

    by debald1

    I’m sorry to give it such a bad review, but I tried 23-30 times both front and back camera without getting a successful reading.

  • Works great for normal rhythm

    by Sa654

    The app records heart rate if everything is OK. I have tachycardia. During an episode, it fails to work, and gives error message every time.

  • Does not work!

    by Sweetgrlooh

    Waste of money does not work correctly.

    by dr Bruce S

    Much artifact gave erroneous results when checked against wrist pulse.

  • Misleading!

    by LoLaMC

    I had the older version of this app from the same developer and a few days ago there was a message asking me to upgrade to the new version for free. I did and was charged $1.99!

  • Worthless, ineffective piece of junk.

    by science_chick21

    Even if I sit PERFECTLY still like it wants me to, this fails to capture a pulse or is wildly inaccurate: it shows 54 BMP with an irregular heartbeat right AFTER I stop exercising . It's only two bucks, but get a small latte instead.
