As wearable devices and sensors like the Apple Watch and Fitbit become more common, an increasing number of apps let users share their heartrate with friends, including exercise tracking apps, gaming apps, and more.

Ph.D. student Nick Merrill and associate professor Coye Cheshire presented their research this week at the annual ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work.
