Handy smart devices that focus on well-being can help improve your state of mind. One such device, the Spire Mindfulness Activity Tracker, which is currently 15 percent off on Amazon, is the only wearable that increases mindfulness and productivity by tracking breathing patterns that reflect your state of mind.
We got our hands on Spire when it was first released, and found it to do exactly what it advertises — calm you down. We also touted its great battery life, aesthetically pleasing shape, and companion app, concluding that it “isn’t intended to interrupt you each time you’re stressed, but rather to bring mindfulness and awareness of tension to this chaos.”
Spire is an activity tracker that measures your breathing and provides feedback to help you have a more focused and calm day. When your breathing indicates tension, in the form of hasty, tense breaths, a gentle notification reminds you to stop and take a deep, relaxing breath. Designed for males and females, the activity tracker can track steps, calories, and respiratory patterns.
Spire also coaches you on how to improve your breathing naturally. The companion smartphone app guides you through short, simple exercises and mini-meditations to help increase focus, calmness, and productivity. Through consistent, unobtrusive, and actionable insights, Spire can help you can take an active role in making positive, reflexive improvements toward greater holistic health and well-being.
The smart breathing device is compatible with iPhones running iOS 8.3 or higher, Android devices running 5.0 and higher, and a variety of other mobile phones and tablets include Samsung, Asus, and Motorola devices. It features wireless charging, providing up to 7-days of battery life, and has a durable washer-proof design.
The Spire Mindfulness Activity Tracker normally retails for $130 but is currently available for $110, providing a $20 (15 percent) discount.
