Swipe-free Tinder finds love using the Apple Watch heart-rate sensor

Simplifying mundane tasks is what apps do best, and Tinder made its name by making it easier than ever to spark the embers of love.

But for those of you for whom swiping is still too burdensome, there exists a solution – it’s called “hands-free Tinder”.

It’s a new app that’s currently being developed by creative technology agency T3, and lets you browse Tinder without having to move a muscle – except for your heart, that is.

It syncs directly to a heart rate-monitoring device – the Apple Watch, for example – and uses your biometric responses to gauge whether you’re smitten for possible matches.

If a picture solicits a rising heart rate, it counts as a ‘swipe right’, which means you could end up in a flirty tête-à-tête with your new Tinder pal.

Of course, if your blood-pumping thumper doesn’t feel the love, you’ll automatically ‘swipe left’, and the cruel Darwinist circle of Tinder continues.

The company says the app is “coming soon” to both Apple’s App Store and the Google Play store, although no exact release date has been given.

At the very least, it means you’ll be able to eventually use this app with an Apple Watch or Android Wear device. From there, just sit back and relax – although not too much, or you might accidentally skip over the love of your life…
