Right when we thought our smartphones couldn’t possibly do more, enter a gadget suitable for iPhones that can track your vitals. Never thought of listening to your heart beat through your phone? Well, now you can! Our friends at PureWow took the gadget into their own hands and tried it out. Check out what PureWow has to say about Tinke below!
Repeat after us: There is no health gadget that can replace a doctor. But in the era of the Fitbit and Jawbone, there are devices that can help you track your health and measure your improvement.
Case in point: Tinke ($119), a tiny “ultra-light biofeedback” device that plugs into your iPhone and scans your thumbprint to measure your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, heart rhythm and respiratory rate.
You read that right. It reads your thumbprint for real-time wellness stats.
But what to do with all this data? Well, the corresponding Tinke app breaks it down into two wellness figures–Vita (your vital statistics) and Zen (your breathing and stress levels)–so you can easily see how you’re doing in terms of mind and body and make adjustments accordingly.
