    “… from … the color (sic) of your face”

    so does it work if you are wearing makeup, or are a non-white person?  I don’t see how it could.

    Autocomplete seems to have replaced “breathing” rate with “breaking” rate – first sentence!

    Hahaha…
    If this (cr)app would actually do what they say it does, i.e. accurately measuring your heart rate and breathing rate, why don’t doctors and hospitals use it in daily practice? I’ll tell you why: because it’s belony! I can hardly believe that this joke actually comes from Philips, but nonetheless it may prove to be a good advertising campaign.

    Actually, that should be “color change”, which is caused by your blood pulsation. And it does not matter what is the color of your skin – blood has the same color and it pulsates in the same way.

    This is not a joke. I’ve tested it in comparison with a contact sensor. Works very well if you follow the instructions.
