New Heart Rate Trackers: Is Knowing Your Pulse Useful?

New Heart Rate Trackers: Is Knowing Your Pulse Useful? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Several new fitness trackers, along with heart rate monitors, allow users to constantly measure their heart rate throughout the day. For the average person, this information may be interesting, but it remains to be seen whether it can help make you healthier, experts say.

Heart rate monitors geared toward athletes have been available for years, but recently, fitness trackers aimed at the general public have started to include heart rate as a measure to track along with steps taken, calories burned, distanced walked and sleep.

For example, the Withings Pulse includes a sensor that lets you check your heart rate using your finger, and the Basis B1 has heart rate monitor built into the wristband itself, allowing you to know your rate at any time. (The Basis also graphs this information, so users can see how their heart rate changed during the day or night.)

Knowing your heart rate can be useful when you exercise, because it will help you know whether your exercise is intense enough to provide health benefits, but not so intense that it could cause health problems, said Dr. James Borchers, a sports medicine physician at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. This sweet spot is known as the "target zone," which is about 60 to 80 percent of your maximum heart rate, according to the Cleveland Clinic. [The Best Heart Rate Monitor Watches for Exercise]

The Quantified Self: How Data-Obsessed Trackers Push Toward Healthier Lives

The Quantified Self: How Data-Obsessed Trackers Push Toward Healthier Lives | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Like many of us, David Jay sets goals for himself every New Year's. But to track his progress, he goes a step further than many: He spends time each week entering detailed information about his life into a spreadsheet.

Jay tracks the big and the small: from how often he meditates, calls his parents and works out, to how many new friends he's making, what books he's reading and the contributions he's making to his work and community. This New York resident is also working on a side project to develop an app that could track his emotions, in part to see how his feelings correlate with physiological measures, such as his heart rate, skin conductance and other aspects of his life.

"It makes me feel like I have an understanding of what the important things in my life are, and how they're doing in a way that I normally don't have access to," Jay said of his tracking. "It's also good to realize when there are patterns, when there are really important things in my life that I'm not prioritizing," he said.

Jay is a member of the quantified self movement, a group of people who strive for better self-understanding by collecting data about themselves, with no detail too small. They are often aided by an ever-growing list of gadgets, including fitness trackers, heart rate monitors, self-tracking apps and even trackers of trackers.

Does mobile health technology help the heart?

Does mobile health technology help the heart? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
Wearable health trackers and Smartphone apps have taken the world by storm in recent years. Around 20% of Smartphone users have one or more health apps on their device, and a 2014 report by Nielsen found 1 in 6 of us use wearable technology - such as fitness trackers - on a daily basis.

According to the authors of the American Heart Association (AHA) statement - including Lora E. Burke of the University of Pittsburgh, PA - the most popular self-monitoring devices and apps are those that track physical activity or heart rate. But do such technologies have a direct impact on heart health?

For their study, Burke and colleagues reviewed a number of meta-analyses and randomized clinical trials of mobile health technologies that had been conducted over the past 10 years.

They investigated how such technologies influenced improvement in risk factors for heart health, as determined by the AHA's Life's Simple 7: eating healthily, increasing physical activity, weight management, avoidance of tobacco smoke, reducing blood sugar, cholesterol control and blood pressure control.

Best Heart Rate Monitor Apps

Best Heart Rate Monitor Apps | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Your smartphone has a secret superpower: With its camera and flash alone, it can measure your heart rate. That means that apps are available to track your heart rate, with the aim of helping you improve your health.

This simple process has a complicated name: photoplethysmography. Every time the heart sends a pulse of blood through the body, the tiny capillary vessels in the skin expand. When a smartphone's flash illuminates the skin, its camera can capture the miniscule color changes that happen each time the heart beats. (Because you have to hold fairly still for this process, these apps don't provide the sort of continuous monitoring that external heart rate monitors can provide; with these apps, you'll have to stop what you're doing for about 10 seconds to take your pulse.)

This week, we're learning details about new one: it's going to help build a bandage-sized, cloud-connected sensor to help people monitor their glucose levels. The product is being developed in partnership with DexCom, an established manufacturer of continuous glucose monitoring systems; DexCom will be building the sensors, while Life Sciences will be handling the miniaturization.
