Heartbeats is designed to help you monitor your heart rate and log how fast your pulse is over a long period of time

If you’re someone who worries about the state of their fitness, or is simply curious to find out how their body copes over a long period of time, then that’s where HeartBeats comes in.
Basically, it’s an application that helps you measure your heart rate and log it every time you do so, recording the history over a long period of time.
You simply click the heart, count between 10-30 heart beats, and then click again when you achieve the number.
The app doesn’t explain itself very well the first time you use it, but basically once you’ve finished you tell the application how many pulse beats you registered.
It will then calculate a BPM and record it, with a graph showing how fast your heart should be.
While it’s a cool application showing you your own heart rate, it’s a little pricey for £2.15, especially when there’s no graph or interactivity with the charts.
Still, it’s a lot cheaper than a dedicated heart rate monitor, and takes the stress out of actually having to count and write things down yourself.
