The Galaxy S5’s heart rate sensor has mostly been handy for fitness gurus, but it’s now helpful for the rest of us, too. Samsung has pushed out an update to S Health that uses the sensor to track stress levels; if your heart is racing after a bad day at work, you’ll know. The app also tracks long-term trends, so it should be clear when you’re overdue for a vacation.
Galaxy S5’s heart rate sensor just got more useful with the recent S Health update. The latest S Health update that was released a few days back has added the support to detect user stress level. With the help of the built-in heart rate sensor, Galaxy S5 user’s can now check their stress level on a regular basis. The readings also automatically create a chart that shows the stress level on an hourly, daily or a monthly basis. I guess it’s time to take out the Galaxy S5 and show your boss how overworked you are!
