Heart rate data can be really useful whether youre designing an exercise routine, studying your activity, or just want your shirt to blink with your heart beat. The problem is that heart rate can be difficult to measure. Luckily the Pulse Sensor Amped can solve that problem!

The Pulse Sensor Amped is a plug-and-play heart-rate sensor for Arduino. It can be used by students, artists, athletes, makers, and game & mobile developers who want to easily incorporate live heart-rate data into their projects.

It combines a simple optical heart rate sensor with amplification and noise cancellation circuitry, making it fast and easy to get reliable pulse readings. It sips power with just 4mA current draw at 5V, so its great for mobile applications.
