    We need to cover the back camera and flash with our finger
    .
    We're going to use our index finger for this. The screen tells us that it couldn't find our finger, because we weren't pressing it. We're going to tap "Try again" and put our finger over the back of the phone on the flash as well (the flash will be lit up).

    Leave the finger there until it's done

    In this example, our heart rate has been measured at 85 beats per minute. This is because we were running down the street a few minutes ago.
