Wearable heart rate sensor accuracy didn’t vary across skin tones in small Duke study

Dive Brief: A study of heart rate sensors on six wearable device models found accuracy fell by 30% on average when subjects were walking compared to when seated at rest. Skin tone variations did not significantly affect heart rate measurement accuracy, according to a group of researchers at Duke University’s Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics​.… Read More »
