Heart Rate Profile (HRP)

The Heart Rate Profile (HRP) enables a Collector device to connect and interact with a Heart Rate Sensor for use in fitness applications.

Usage Scenarios

The Heart Rate Profile allows heart rate information to be sent from one sensor (heart rate monitor) to another device, such as at a doctor's office. A nurse or doctor could take a patient's heart rater and have that information automatically uploaded to the patients file.

Example Products

  • Heart rate monitor
  • Pulse oximeter
  • Laptop
  • Tablet
  • Cellular phone

Getting technical

The profile defines two roles: Heart Rate Sensor and Collector. The Heart Rate Sensor is the device that measures heart rate and other information and the Collector is the device that receives the measurement and other data from a Heart Rate Sensor.
