Samsung Adds Stress Sensor to Galaxy S5 Smartphone

Note -- this news article is more than a year old.

Samsung has pushed out a software upgrade to its Galaxy S5 smartphone that now includes a stress sensor.

It makes use of the heart-rate sensor which was included as part of the handset's fitness tracking service. The software upgrade now uses that same sensor to monitor stress levels -- albeit at a basic biological level rather than how stressed your brain might be feeling.

The app also tracks long term trends, which could be useful for printing out when asking for a stress related holiday from the boss.

Users need to download the latest version of the S Health app to get the upgrade.
