Wearable Biofeedback

Spire

The Spire is a small, noninvasive device that clips on an individuals pants or bra and measures the breathing patterns of the wearer. Information on the breath is then used to give you real-time feedback through a light buzzing of the device and a notification message on your phone. For example, wearers can receive a message when their breathing is indicative of a pattern that, for example, reflects tension. The app that comes with the device aims to coach wearers towards a more healthy lifestyle.

The Spire device can also notify wearers when they are inactive as it can track your steps and estimate the amount of calories burned. Custom reminders can be set that will nudge wearers when they’ve been inactive.
