The best iPhone apps for heart monitoring

To track the rate and measure the performance, you will need your smartphone’s camera. Place the tip of one of your fingers on the camera and ensure that you cover the lens. Hold onto the position for a few minutes so that the app can detect your heart rate. The app gives you accurate readings, which you can be able to screenshot and share with friends or save for future reference.

While pressing the lens, ensure that you do it gently because pressing too hard reduces the blood flow and it may be hard to get the results.
