This tracks who you are talking to as often as you read all of your social media accounts for your guilty pleasures in finding your physical activity and calories and now it can actually calculate your stress level for Samsung users at least. Samsung’s S Health app has been updated with a feature allowing users to track stress levels. The way it works is for the consumer to place a finger on the screen. Then the heart rate monitor is used to collect the data which determines the user’s stress. The app stores this data over a period of time and maps it out. Stress causes issues with the health but little is known. One recognized symptom of certain forms of stress is an elevated heart rate that the monitor will detect. Other forms may go undetected. Heart rate changes often aren’t necessarily caused by stress. Exercising will increase heart rate for everyone. One morning run may be attributed to a reading of stress. Caffeine tobacco or other legal stimulants can also increase heart rate, potentially making a user appear stressed. That information, however, could also have its potential benefits. While this information may be useful in health environments such as a doctor’s appointment where a patient can respond and provide a chart of stress levels, certain realistic applications could also be used. Stress up in the meeting before presentation? Time to take a few breaths deep. A persistent spike of stress on an ordinary day at a certain point? Start seeing what this triggers. Knowing when a consumer displays signs of stress could be extremely useful in daily life. Of course it could also have other applications for app developers who might have a new dataset to work with and build apps around just as they did when they discovered that smartphones had the ability to be used as pedometers. The Samsung Galaxy S5 (OTC: SSNLF) is already collecting heart rate data through this device and through other Samsung Galaxy devices. The technology isn’t difficult to create; it has been done for years by fitness trackers. No word on whether other Samsung devices, too, would test tension. It is a bonus for those interested in keeping track of their safety. Let s reserve judgment for the rest of us until we see how it works out for them.
