    Are there any third party apps that can measure your heart rate that use the proper sensor on the S7 edge?

    All the ones I have seen in the app store use the camera and are rubbish.

    I would like to be able to just get a graph of my hear beat over an extended period rather than just see the hear rate as in S-Health.

    Is the heart rate sensor on the S7 Edge specific to Samsung or is it built into Android like the fingerprint sensor is now?

    I don't know about 3rd party apps, but I just got the new galaxy s7 as well and was trying to find a way to utilize the heart rate sensor and I found this. Hope it helps!

    HRM Sensor:
    The heart rate sensor enables users to monitor their physical information, which can be checked through the S Health app. In addition, the front-facing camera of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge lets you take selfies using your heart rate monitor sensor.

    I hope your are having fun with your new phone. I am still playing with mine like a kid on Christmas morning

    Yeah I know S-Health does it, but was wondering if the sensor uses a standard API in the hope that other apps will make use of it.

    Sadly no there isn't no third party app
