You know the old routine of swiping right and left on Tinder, right? Well now you can put your fingers down and let your heart choose the perfect companion for you.

The dating application Tinder took the world by storm when it was first released and now the company has taken its technology one step further. Now, it matches you to other people based on your heart's reaction to their picture.

To use this "hands-free Tinder" app, you need to have an Apple Watch. The app uses the watch to monitor your heart rate and picks up when it rises and falls.

If your heart beats quickly when the photo of a new Tinder member pops up, the app will swipe right for you to pair you with the person who made your heart jump. And if your heart rate lowers, the app will recognize it and swipe left to move onto the next potential member.

What if someone has a pacemaker or an irregular heartbeat? Or what if an unattractive person scares you? This technology has a few flaws that could lead to matching you with the wrong person or passing up on the person of your dreams.

Just a few things to think about before diving into to the idea of this Apple Watch app.
