'Share the Heartbeat' is a new smartwatch application that allows users to share the rhythm of their heartbeat with others. While there are many ways to engage with other users via digital devices, these types of interactions lack the intimacy that comes from face-to-face conversations. This new smartwatch feature provides a more personal way to connect with others.

Share the Heartbeat is a smartwatch app that encourages users to share the rhythm of their heartbeat with one another. The app is easy to use and simply requires a user to press two fingers on the screen of their watch until an animated heart appears. This cartoon heart will then mimic the rhythm of the user's heartbeat. The recordings can be shared with anyone, including strangers. In fact, the app is designed to help users form new friendships through the act of sharing their heartbeat.

The smartwatch app ultimately provides an intimate way for strangers to connect without the need to divulge personal information.
