Bharat Vasan on The Pulse Tracer

August 15, 2010

At our June Bay Area Quantified Self Show&Tell, Bharat Vasan demonstrated his PulseTracer heart rate monitor. The prototype watch+monitor betrayed his nervousness at public speaking by flashing a heart rate of 120 bpm on his wrist. In the video below, Bharat describes how this single measure serves as an indicator of the stressfulness of situations he finds himself in, and helps him remember to take positive actions he might otherwise forget in the heat of the moment.
