In July last year, Xiaomi introduced a new health-tracking app called Mi Health. At launch, the app was pretty simple and included just a couple of features. Including step counting, sleep monitoring, and menstrual cycle tracking. Now, with the arrival of MIUI 12, Xiaomi has introduced a couple of new features. It include a more accurate step counter and new sleep tracking features. Now Xiaomi is adding the ability to check your heart rate using your smartphone’s camera.
To use this feature, you will need to open a new section “Pulse” in the application. Thenclick on the button in the lower right corner. On the next screen, you will be prompted with your finger to completely cover the camera and flash. As soon as you do this, your device will begin to measure the pulse, and you will have to hold your finger in one position until the scale reaches 100%.
Upon completion of the work, the application will ask you to select the type of displayed statistics in a pop-up window. The window will include three options – General Condition, Resting-State, and After Exercise. You will need to select one of three options based on your current condition and click the View Report button in the pop-up window to see your current heart rate. The test report will include your heart rate and an illustration showing whether the pulse is slow, normal, or fast.
The new feature will be added in version 2.7.4 of the Mi Health app. Most users should get this update in the coming days.
