Install on Google Play

You need to register Runtastic to use this app. If you already have a cr account for one of the Runtastic applications, you can connect with it. Then follow the guide!

Start the measurement, and press your finger against the sensor of your camera: the flash turns on, but it is indeed on the photo sensor that you have to put your index finger.

  • Make sure you do not move: use a table and both hands to stay steady throughout the measurement.
  • Press your finger against the sensor, but not too hard!
  • If that does not work, be sure to place your finger. Changing hands can also help you better position yourself.
  • If you do not have a flash, it will redouble attention: place your finger at best, and especially do not move.

The application is rather accurate in its measurements, which is also quite surprising. You can, once the test is finished, indicate your state (at rest, active, etc.) and add notations, just as you can get used to on Runtastic.
