When Samsung presented the Galaxy S5, we saw together, in various articles, all the main news of this device. Among the many features introduced by Samsung in the Galaxy S5 we also find the possibility of detect your heart rate using a dedicated application and the smartphone's rear LED flash. A convenient and useful function, although, honestly, I don't know how reliable it can be.

But is the Galaxy S5 the only smartphone that has this function? Can the heart rate also be measured with other smartphones? Obviously the affirmative answer: other smartphones, such as the iPhone, can also measure your heart rate without difficulty using the LED flash and the right application. So let's see how possible also measure your heart rate on iPhone using the right applications, just like on Galaxy S5.

I repeat, before proceeding, that I don't know how reliable the measurements can be. The best thing would be to compare the results of the various applications with a medical instrument.

But how can you measure your heart rate with your smartphone?

Heart rate measurement with professional equipment it takes place through a very simple approach, which, as we have seen, reproducible even on modern smartphones. Like?

This is exactly what the Samsung Galaxy S5 does: no magic, no particular sensor, just the right app that is able to combine the camera and the flash and, of course, the right algorithm. Consequently, just like on Galaxy S5, even on iPhone it is possible to do this simply by placing your finger on the camera, with the Flash on, and launching specific applications capable of detecting and monitoring the pulse by calculating the consequent heart beat.
