Breath trackers measure the length of time between breaths taken over a span of seconds to minutes. It may seem odd that your breathing pattern can be measured in this way, but there is actually some science behind it.
- WHAT’S THIS PRODUCT ABOUT?
This device is a heart rate monitor that focuses on your breath to give you accurate results that can be used for exercise and meditation.
The first thing to know understanding how it works is important if you want the most out of the product and use it correctly, as different breathing techniques can affect which features will work better for you.
- HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PROS AND CONS:
One of the main reasons we decided to try this product out was its price point, as opposed to other devices on the market such as Fitbit. For people looking for only basic functionality like step count, calorie burn or heart rate measurements these may be sufficient – however some users find themselves disappointed by those limited features so may need to upgrade.
This product has found itself quite popular with yoga lovers who want to track breathing patterns and heart rate during their sessions, or use it as a meditation tool. Its ease of use is also an advantage – no worrying about charging or connection issues like other fitness bands on the market.
The tracker’s accuracy can be difficult to know for sure, as different users have mixed opinions on whether the results are accurate or not. We would recommend monitoring your progress over time instead of taking one measurement at face value just to see if they change dramatically.
3.) SPECIFIC FEATURES:
- Bluetooth enabled (compatible with iOS & Android) for sharing data with your smartphone/tablet
- Tracks aerobic activity (exercise) & recovery time
- Measures heart rate, steps taken and detects whether you are in fat burning or peak training zones
- Displays breathing cycles with visual guide. Also records respiratory rate (breath per minute).
4.) WHO IS THIS PRODUCT FOR?
This device was made to be used by anyone who wants basic information about their workouts as well as those who want to keep a close eye on their breathing patterns during yoga sessions. We would recommend it more for people who have an active lifestyle as opposed to those who have a sedentary job – as its use of motion sensors means the results may not be entirely accurate if not being worn all day. It can also be used by beginners to meditation, by tracking heart rate during sessions.
5.) PRICE POINT
The price of this device is £56.99, which places it in the mid-range for cost when compared to others on the market. For that price you can get a range of different fitness trackers with basic features like step count and calorie burn measurements or more advanced like GPS, but nothing that tracks breathing patterns or uses sensors to measure heart rate during meditation/yoga sessions.
6) IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?
This product has become very popular with yoga lovers, as it shows them their breath cycle (visual guide) along with accurate information about their heart rate – making it easier than ever to keep up your practice while getting all the benefits of your sessions.
7) DID YOU LIKE IT? WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT TO A FRIEND?
We would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for an affordable way to stay motivated and monitor their progress during yoga and meditation sessions and those who want basic fitness band-style information about their activity levels throughout the day.
