If you’ve ever searched online for fitness products, you’ve likely been bombarded with ads for fitness trackers. But how many step-counting devices do you really need? If the options are stressing you out, maybe you should opt for a wearable that focuses on de-stressing your life: Spire. By tracking your breathing patterns, Spire helps you to mindfully reach your fitness goals.
Breaths And Steps
We know that mindful, deep breaths are good for us. They encourage full oxygen exchange, slow your heartbeat, stabilize your blood pressure, and even improve your memory! The Spire tracker claims to help people “reconnect with their body, be more productive, and sleep better at night.” Sounds like a pretty sweet deal, right? It all comes down to your breathing patterns.

Spire vibrates when you’ve had several minutes of tense breathing, reminding you to take a deep breath. It also offers guided meditations for mindfulness, with the intention of bringing a “sense of calm and control into your daily life.” If you’re wary of giving up your step counter, have no fear! The device can also track your physical activity, including steps, and sends you real-time notifications.
Rock Solid Mindfulness
Here’s a bonus for you: Spire also looks pretty sleek. It resembles a rock (in the best way possible) and clips onto your pants, shirt, or wherever you want it. The device connects with an iOS app and comes with a wood-printed pad that plugs into your computer’s USB port. It’s time to focus, get calm, and achieve those fitness goals. But first, take a deep breath.
