Google Pixel 5 and older phones can now read your heart rate Google Pixel 5

The Google Pixel range has just picked up a useful new skill, as from this week (March 8), supported models are getting an update that allows them to read your heart rate and respiration rate through the Google Fit app.

Google has already announced this feature, but the information that it’s coming now specifically comes from Android Police where Google confirmed the feature is rolling out from now. Bear in mind it may take a while, so it might be several days before all compatible handsets get the update.
