Wearable tech to track your state of mind? Spire.

Techstination feature for Monday, July 7, 2014

Wearable tech designed to track fitness and your state of mind.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    A wearable  called Spire is due to arrive on the market later this summer and it is designed to measure things that set it apart in the wearable tech market.   Co-founder and CEO Jonathan Palley….

“Spire’s unique technology is that we look at breathing patterns.  We look at activity as well as breathing.  And breathing is this very interesting physiological signal that both reflects and reveals state of mind.  So as you become very focused or as you get into the zone or as you become tense or stressed, your breathing patterns change.  Similarly, if you do something like take a deep breath, you can influence your state of mind.  You can relax, you can calm yourself down, you can become focused.”

The Spire will last a week on a charge…which is done wirelessly…and will sell for about a hundred fifty dollars.  There’s more info at  You can find us at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
