Spire Mindfulness and Activity Tracker
Spire Mindfulness and Activity Tracker
With the Spire Mindfulness and Activity Tracker and companion app on your iPhone, you can become more mindful and calm throughout your day. Unobtrusively clipped to your pants or bra, the tiny Spire stone senses respiratory patterns to detect changes in your state of mind (Tense, Calm and Focus). With gentle notifications, rich insights and breathing exercises delivered on your iOS device, Spire unlocks a more mindful, balanced and productive day.
Based on seven years of research into the science of breath
Your state of mind affects how you breathe. But how you breathe can also change your state of mind. For example, studies have uncovered how slow, deep and consistent breathing can lower blood pressure, reduce stress and increase the flow of endorphins in your blood stream.
Spire notifies you via the app on your iPhone or iPad when you’re tense, need to take a deep breath, have just experienced an extended streak of calm and more.
Visualise your breath while listening to guided exercises from recognised experts on breathing, calm and focus. Unlock new boosts as you gain mastery.
Understand the rhythms of your day with contextual tools for discovering what makes you calm, focused or tense.

To: Jennifer C from Wilmington, I am in the same situation as you are. And, I'll bet that a lar To: Jennifer C from Wilmington, I am in the same situation as you are. And, I'll bet that a large percentage of others like us will respond positively to this idea. I'll also bet that those who are responsible for this tracker have already confronted this situation. From the little I know about digital wi-fi and Bluetooth signals, there is quite a system of "addressing" and "pairing" for those signals that would make this unit compatible with our pacemakers. My guess is that if the pacemaker is compatible with all the abilities of a smart phone, this will be OK too.
