How it works
The iheart Remote app lets another person view your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, and a visual display of your breathing patterns in real-time, from wherever they are.
Here’s how to get started:
- Both users must have the iheart Remote app installed on their smart device (free to download in Google Play and the App Store). Only the user taking the reading needs to own the iheart device.
- Both users must have the iheart Remote apps open on their devices at the same time.
- The user taking the reading clips the iheart device on their index finger.
- The other user can then view their health data in real-time for as long as the iheart device is being used.
There are countless ways the iheart Remote app can be used to monitor the wellness of another person and enhance virtual health appointments.
