New feature added in Mi Health app, will tell heart rate with the phone’s camera

The Mi Health app has now received a new update that supports heart rate monitoring. The update comes with version number 2.7.4 and should reportedly reach all Me Health app users in the coming days. The Mi Health app was launched last year and made available only to a select few MIUI users. At the time, the app had some fitness tracking features with sleep monitoring and menstrual cycle tracking, but no heart rate monitoring. This special feature has now been added with the new update.

XDA Developers reports that the Mi Health app is getting heart rate monitoring support. This feature will use the phone camera to measure heart rate data. There is a new heart rate section inside the app and this segment has a red icon at the bottom right of the screen. Tapping on it will start heart rate monitoring. The screen will give you instructions to block the camera and flash. As soon as you do this, the phone will start measuring heart rate. Users have to block the camera and flash until the screen shows that the detection has been completed.

Once the measurement is complete, the Mi Health app asks the users’ status just before the measurement, ie ‘whether they were in a normal state, resting, or exercising.’ After selecting the correct option and pressing the ‘View Report’ button, a test report appears on the screen, which will include heart rate and a graphic. This would suggest whether the heart rate is normal, slow or fast. The Me Health app is not available on Google Play and is listed only on some devices running MIUI.
