Implementing heart rate variation measurement in a wristband: a small, robust and accurate optical solution

Monitoring the behavior of a person’s heart can reveal immensely valuable information about their health, lifestyle and even emotional state, as well as the early onset of heart disease. In a medical setting an ECG chest strap, however, is cumbersome, uncomfortable and expensive, with restricts its use to medical settings and high-end sports equipment. Might it be possible to capture ECG-like data about heart rate variability in a convenient, easily wearable device? This article describes the technical challenges involved in reliably capturing continuous heart rate variation measurements with a wristband, and compares its performance with a reference standard set by an ECG chest strap. The new highly integrated ams’ AS7000 biosensor enables designers to realize a simpler, more comfortable and cheaper implementation of HRM in a wristband than previous systems using multiple discrete components.
