Are you bored of swiping through Tinder and batting away bad matches on Plenty Of Fish? Well now there's a new dating app on the market and it takes things to the next level. Dating app 'Once' uses your heart rate to evaluate how much you like your potential match by testing how much your heart races when you see them. ‘Once’ aims to stay away from mindlessly swiping through endless profiles by only giving its users one match per day based on their heart rate reading. They then have 24 hours to decide if they want to go ahead with their match.
The USP of Once is that it focuses on quality, not quantity, by only providing you with one potential match each day. At noon, you and your partner will see each other on the app and have 24 hours to decide if you like each other. The really special feature is the heart rate monitor. Those with a Fitbit or Android can hook up their device and then let the fun begin. Once's founder Jean Meyer thinks this feature will help users distinguish real matches. If you look at your partner's photo and your heart rate spikes, it means you really like them!
Since its launch in October 2015, Once has gathered 3 million users and is available in 32 different countries. So, what're you waiting for? Time for your fitness tracker to really do some work!
