Spire's wearable designed to improve your state of mind

Techstination feature for Thursday, March 2, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     Whether it’s the Apple Watch or Fitbit Charge 2…there are more wearables on the market that can help you get focused with breathing.    Meditation and Mindfulness are pretty popular practices.  A gadget called Spire is unlike the other wearables in the category.   It is shaped like a stone…with a soft covering…and clips on to your clothing against your skin.   It tracks activity and breathing and pairs with an app.   Co-founder and CEO Jonathan Palley…

“Breathing is really the best physiological signal that both reflects your state of mind, reflects when you’re getting tense your breathing changes.  When you’re calm your breathing changes.   When you’re really focused in the zone.  Breathing gives us insight.”

The charger is stylish, wireless and includes a USB port for charging other devices too.  Spire sells for about 130 dollars.
