[prMac.com] San Diego, California - Pelfunc Inc. has launched a new product called Heart Rate Touch, an accurate and easy to use iPhone App available in the App Store for $2.99. Keeping tabs on your pulse is an important tool for tracking your overall fitness. Heart Rate Touch measures your pulse simply and accurately while respecting your privacy. There are no logins, in-app purchases or other up-sell gimmicks. Written entirely in Swift, an innovative new programming language from Apple, Heart Rate Touch features leading edge technology, with the following features:
Quick and simple to use: To use, cover both the flash and the camera with your finger. Apply a steady, light pressure and remain still. A great way to do this is by resting the phone on your finger and letting the weight of the phone do the work.
Advanced algorithm produces highly accurate results: Heart Rate Touch is an optical heart rate monitor that uses light to track your blood. By illuminating the capillaries in your fingertip with a light source (Flash), a sensor (Camera) adjacent to the light measures the frequency (Heart Rate) at which your blood pumps from the "redness" of the images it captures. Results have a theoretical accuracy to well within 1 beat per minute.
Privacy and Sharing: The app does not collect any user information that is communicated back to a server. The measurements remain private on your device. Results are available to be exported in text format and also to Apple's Health app at your discretion.
