This paper describes the development and experimental results of two prototype wearable heart rate (HR) counters. Portable and wearable HR counters were developed to measure the heart rate, an important vital sign and basic in vivo information. We developed acceleration and strain gage HR counters. The strain gage HR counter measures the heart rate during walking at 1.0-2.0m/s.
