iPhone Headphones Created to Measure Heart Rate

Some new headphones/earphones have been created for the iPhone that allows you to monitor your heartrate. The normal way apps measure your heartrate is by using data collected from a device wrapped around your chest.

The new headphones are capable of sitting in your ears and use a device that measures information in the tissues of your ear. This data is collected and displayed on the screen of the iPhone. All the user needs to do is wear the earphones and listen to music as normal and the data is collected.

As well as being able to monitor your heartrate, the developers who are The European Space Agency, say that in the future they will be able to measure other vital signs collected in the same way.

It isn’t known at the moment when the technology will be launched, but it will be fantastic to see something like this appear.
