“A lot of people, especially in disadvantaged economic classes right now, don’t have things like wearables, but would still really benefit from the ability to be able to track their breathing rate, heart rate, et cetera” Google’s product manager said.

The heart rate measuring accuracy is below 2 percent, according to Google’s internal tests. In just one breath per minute, the respiratory rate feature is accurate (with and without heart conditions). Such functions have been tested by Google on a wide variety of individuals with varying skin tones and body shapes and obtained reliable findings with equal precision.

The app feature is now available solely on pixels. As this is a device feature, other Android phones may also be sold. Google made no comment on making other gadgets available.
