This study demonstrates the feasibility of measuring heart rate (HR) differences associated with emotional states such as anger and happiness with a smartphone. Novice experimenters measured higher HRs during relived anger and happiness (replicating findings in the literature) outside a laboratory environment with a smartphone app that relied on photoplethysmography.
