If your heart skips a beat, a genuine connection is not far off

In dating apps, the first connection happens based on a photo and a clever description. But Once wants to make that connection more organic by measuring a user's excitement about a potential date through their heart rate.

When it first debuted, Once emphasized its careful process of choosing just one match for users per day. This created a more customized experience than other apps.
