My partner and I wanted to make heart rate monitor that does more than simply measure a user's heart rate. Our heart rate monitor talks! Each button gives a verbal description of its functionality and makes the measurements visible on the screen. This monitor will save the last four readings, display them, average them, and also offer some inspirational quotes!

Step 1: What you need

  • Arduino Uno
  • Pulse Sensor
  • Adafruit Wave Shield (Must be soldered by user. This is what makes the device speak!)
  • Adafruit RBG LCD Shield
  • Standard speakers
  • Custom Shield (helpful for mounting multiple shields to the Arduino)
  • USB Cable
  • SD card (8GB is a LOT of space... Even 2GB will do. Make sure to purchase the real SD brand. Fakes are out there.)
