How does the heart rate sensor work?


Vi measures heart rate using an optical heart rate sensor in the left earbud. The sensor emits light in a specific wavelength to the tissue of the tragus in the ear, and the reflective light is captured by the receiver of the sensor, that is processed by a proprietary algorithm to capture the heart rate.

Fun Fact: this sensor was originally designed for the air force and astronauts so it is incredibly accurate!
