Stress Check by Azumio is a straightforward app that measures your heart rate through your phone’s camera. You select the start button and your phone’s camera lights up, you then place your finger over the light and camera. The reading usually takes about two minutes and the app analyzes your heart rate variability (HRV). The HRV data is then translated into a gauge of zero to 100 percent stress level. A few sentences are provided about your stress level, such as how you can lower it or maintain a low level. The pro version of the app gives you unlimited data storage and better historical views of your data.
