After being originally launched in the year 2016 with an iOS compatible app called Vital Signs, the company behind its invention has confirmed that an android version of the app is now available on the play store to support the functions of the device.

Created by Jess Goodman, the device is designed to help people live longer and healthier lives. The device plays a crucial role in helping a person understand the condition of his overall health and further record a person's health improvement from maintaining a balanced diet, regular exercising and low stress levels.

The device is made to deliver results instantly. The device is placed on the person's finger in order to calculate a specific Internal Age in about 30 seconds.

The ultimate aim of this device is to encourage people to make changes to their health habits in order to lower their Internal Age over time as they progress towards living a better and healthier life.

"Eighty  Seven per cent of the world's population uses Android devices, so we felt it necessary to get a new app out placing vital information into more hands,"  Jess Goodman, said.

The Internal Age of an Individual is instantly calculated by deriving an Aortic Stiffness score.

Heart rate data and blood oxygen levels are also indicated. Derived data is then sent to the Android or iOS devices in order to track and measure the individual's progress towards a healthy lifestyle.

 "In just 30 seconds - anywhere, anytime, on almost any device - we are giving people the tools to live happier, healthier lives," Goodman said.

As an initiative taken up by the company to reach out to a larger group of users, iHeart is now available on Android devices via a dedicated app on the Google Play Store as well as iOS App Store.
