Google Pixel phones can now read your heart rate — here’s how it works

Pixel phones will soon be able to offer users respiratory rate and heart rate readings through their smartphone’s cameras. On the tail of a finalized Fitbit acquisition, Google just announced a Google Fit upgrade that will brings these vital-measuring features to the company’s non-wearable mobile devices next month.

These camera-based vitals give people who don’t own a Fitbit or other Wear OS smartwatch a way to periodically check their health data at home. With this update, the Pixel’s front-facing camera will use a combination of your chest movement patterns and AI to provide a respiratory reading that Google says is accurate within one breath per minute.
