Similar to Google’s Heart Rate measuring feature on Google Fit, the tech giant added another feature into Google fit. This helps monitors your respiration by utilizing your phones front facing camera. It comes in handy to measure your breathing before and after a workout or if you just want to do a random health check.
How to measure your respiratory rate on Google Fit – The best feature yet.
Google’s respiratory rate measure helps you gauge your breathing for your self assessment. If you feel you’re short or breath or breathing irregularly, the respiratory rate test in Google Fit can be a good way to get an idea. You can further share these readings with your doctor for better help.
The first thing you’ll need to do is download the latest version of Google Fit, if you don’t have the update already from the Google Play Store, you can download it from APK Mirror and follow our guide on installing the APK on Android 10 and above devices.
The first thing you’re going to do is install the app and do a few sessions of open/closing the application until you see the new cards in Google Fit.
Choose Get Started and follow the on-screen instructions.
All you have to do is prop your phone up against a sturdy object that supports it. You may have to put your phone at a certain angle so that your chest, shoulders and your head are in the center of the frame. Similar to the shot below.
Once you see yourself in the camera, all you have to do is breathe as you would. Don’t hold your breath in unnecessarily or deliberately hamper your breathing, this helps get the best possible reading.
Thankfully, this test is much faster than the heart rate and takes almost a quarter of the time.
By the end of it, you can save your reading to your Google Fit app and if you are worried about your reading, consult your doctor about what you can do to lower it.
