These fluctuations contain some internal sources like breath, heartbeats, muscles movements and external sources like wind, shivering car or whatever else.

 If your heartbeats are strong enough it is quite easy to define your heartbeats rate, just collect hand fluctuations using built-in iPhone accelerometer, spread out it into flat spectrum and find the highest spectrum line.

 Spectrum with strong heartbeats:


 But if your heartbeats is not so strong, or you keep iPhone in heavy or soft case, or you got strong noise or shivering, the task becomes more difficult.
