Spire breathing monitorWearable technology has promised to help us meet our fitness goals, get a better night’s sleep, and keep tabs on our heart rate. Now, a wearable called Spire offers a new benefit: to help you release tension and relax.

Spire, the first product by a startup of the same name, is designed to measure your breathing when clipped to your waist – no skin contact required. The wearable sends real-time alerts when it detects changes associated with elevated stress, while the included Spire app works you through breathing exercises and other relaxation techniques to bring you back at ease.

“Breathing patterns are incredibly sensitive to state of mind,” explains Spire co-founder Neema Moraveji, Ph.D. “Spire measures over 10 characteristics of each breath cycle to assess levels of stress, focus, and more. Spire is like a weather app for your day – giving you insight into your different states of mind along with fitness data.”

Spire is expected to launch in September for $149.99, though you can get yours for $109 through a limited-time pre-order. For more information, check out the Spire website at spire.io.
