New dating app uses your heartrate to find love


Emma Clark

Dating app Once is designed to help you consider a potential match, and it now uses your heartrate to determine other suitable profiles.

There's nothing like the feeling of your heart fluttering when you see someone that you like. And Once, a new dating app, will use that to help you identify people that make your heart soar.

The app was recently updated to support fitness trackers, including Fitbit and Android Wear devices, to notify you if a profile results in an increase in heart rate.

Unlike many dating apps available, Once takes a one-match-per-day approach, so you can take your time with that particular person. The trailer below describes how the app works.

Once is currently available in the UK, France and Spain for both iOS and Android. Once it added support for fitness trackers, its number of users quickly rose to around 600,000.
