Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Use Heart Rate Monitor Feature in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

Heart rate monitor is a feature available in the S Health app in Samsung Galaxy S5 that will let you easily know your rest heart rate without having to use any additional accessory. You just need to place your fingertip on the sensor and the device will count your rest heart rate automatically. The built-in heart rate sensor is located at the same place with camera flash LED below the rear camera, which in the same time it will keep the device slim because it doesn't need any additional place.

How to use the heart rate monitor feature?
To know your rest heart rate, kindly using the following steps:
  1. Open S Health app.
  2. Tap Heart Rate .

  4. Place your index finger lightly and stand still on the sensor (it's located in the same place with the camera flash LED on the back side of the phone).
