Add support for using on-board heart rate sensor in smartphone watches

The idea is to (if possible) add support for on-board hear rate sensor present in many “android-phones-in-watch” watches since “Sleep as Android” is already working on them (they are running Android 4.4, or newer). Example of such watch: http://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_273835.html
This might be useful for people using such watches, as they are a convenient and more affordable alternative to conventional smartwatches or even smartphones (since the have SIM card slot)

Shouldn't be hard at all, the API for HR seems easily accessible. It's like any other sensor like the accelerometer, well at least with my watch (Allcall W1). Since other 3rd party apps works with it and probably with other standalone android watches as well.

Any chance to be implemented ?

would love to see this! there are some awesome new full featured android smartwatches with the battery power to do this and an entire community that would love something like this…
