In recent days, there is enormous research going on about bio-medical instrumentation along with medicine. In this day and age, one of the crucial parts of one's health is heartbeat or BPM(Beats Per Minute) and it is very important to maintain the staging of the heart rate in the human body. Previously the heartbeat was measured only in the clinics and the hospitals, but now they have eventually found their way into the applications of the mobiles. There is a necessity to build a precise and very cost effective measuring instrument to ensure the calibration of the heart monitoring system all the time. By exploring the various factors that are influencing the abnormal heart rate of people such as the cognitive decline, the symptoms of anxiety and the depression and obesity we can realize the importance of the workout activities in our day to day life. The workout activities of the people in the current life cycle basically include dancing, walking, running and other similar activities. In order to maintain a good lifestyle, we need to keep track of all our day to day workout activities so that we can assess ourselves. Hence various apps are developed for guiding the people to lead a healthier lifestyle. This paper proposes the continuous measurement of heart rate using MAX30102 interfaced with the QtPi Rio board and development of fitness app for encouraging the fitness activities. key words: bio-medical instrumentation, BPM(Beats Per Minute), heart rate, OtPi Rio board.
