Help needed with my Hall sensor driven Tachometer

Hi, so recently I’ve tried to make my own Tachometer project. I am using Arduino Uno, A3144 Hall-effect sensor and 1.8’ TFT display for displaying the RPM value. The only minor problem I am seeking to resolve right now is the jump in value. So for example when the sensor isn’t detecting any magnetic field the value is 0 but after just one detection the value immediately jumps to 60 rpm. How can I edit the code so the value goes up gradually and not by segments of 60(0,60,120,180…)? Any help is much appreciated.

#include <TFT.h>  // Arduino LCD library
#include <SPI.h>

// pin definition for the Uno
#define cs   10
#define dc   9
#define rst  8

// create an instance of the library
TFT TFTscreen = TFT(cs, dc, rst);

// char array to print to the screen
char sensorPrintout[4];
int hallsensor = 2;                // Hall sensor at pin 2

volatile int counter;

unsigned int rpm;

unsigned long passedtime;

void isr()


   //Each rotation, this interrupt function is run twice, so take that into consideration for

   //calculating RPM

   //Update count


void setup()


   //Intiates Serial communications

   attachInterrupt(0, isr, RISING); //Interrupts are called on Rise of Input

   pinMode(hallsensor, INPUT); //Sets hallsensor as input

   counter = 0;

   rpm = 0;

   passedtime = 0; //Initialise the values
   // Put this line at the beginning of every sketch that uses the GLCD:

  // clear the screen with a black background
  TFTscreen.background(0, 0, 0);

  // write the static text to the screen
  // set the font color to white
  TFTscreen.stroke(255, 255, 255);
  // set the font size
  // write the text to the top left corner of the screen
  TFTscreen.text("Sensor Value :\n ", 0, 0);
  // ste the font size very large for the loop

 void loop()
   delay(999);//Update RPM every second

   detachInterrupt(0); //Interrupts are disabled

   rpm = counter*60;           

   passedtime = millis();

   counter = 0;

   Serial.println(rpm); //Print out result to monitor

   attachInterrupt(0, isr, RISING);   //Restart the interrupt processing

    // Read the value of the sensor on A0
  String sensorVal = String((rpm));

  // convert the reading to a char array
  sensorVal.toCharArray(sensorPrintout, 4);

  // set the font color
  TFTscreen.stroke(255, 255, 255);
  // print the sensor value
  TFTscreen.text(sensorPrintout, 0, 20);
  // wait for a moment
  // erase the text you just wrote
  TFTscreen.stroke(0, 0, 0);
  TFTscreen.text(sensorPrintout, 0, 20);

Check your counter more frequently. Try every five seconds to start with perhaps.

Measuring such slow rotation I suggest to measure the time between pulses, the time for one revolution. Then do the math. something like: revs/ second == 60 * revs / measured time -> RPM

The code in this link is derived from a program I was using to control the speed of a small DC motor. It records the time of each pulse.
