As the world of wearables gains momentum, we are starting, more than ever, to be introduced to devices that have been designed to act as our life coaches. At the forefront of this movement are brands such as Vinaya. They are creating the next generation of wearables designed to help us deal with stress and emotional management. The London based start-up recently made headlines when they launched ZENTA, a personalized coaching device for your body and mind, designed to give you a more balanced existence.
Wearables such as the ZENTA promise amazing health benefits that could help us learn how to manage our stress levels. For instance, ZENTA has the ability to learn you so it can give you the kind of beneficial insights that will help put you back in control of your stress levels. For Vinaya, it is all about liberating you so you can focus on more important things, whatever they might be.
Another jewellery brand delving into wellbeing wearables is Moodmetric, the brainchild of Niina Venho and inventor Henry Rimminen. Of the duo, Venho is involved with all the product development functions, and has also been the public face of the company, and Rimminen is the man behind the original idea as well as all the stages of the physical product prototyping.
Moodmetric is a device that successfully uses technology to promote happiness. The wearable measures the autonomous nervous system signals used to understand emotional reactions and improve quality of life. Simple, functional and scientific, the beautiful ring will track your emotional levels, learn to calm your mind and log your emotional price. Available for €229, it promises to be the stylish wearable that will offer you the simplest way to manage your stress levels.
Lastly, there is start-up Sentio Solutions wristband. It recognizes emotional algorithms and measures/tracks bio-signals from users throughout the day. Founded by George Eleftheriou and Haris Tsirmpas, the wearable also has the ability to extract insights about consumer behaviour. On the device, the founders shared, “…the mobile application not only visualises the emotional data of the users it also provides actionable personalized recommendations based on advanced psychological techniques to help users achieve wellbeing.” On reading our moods, Eleftheriou explained “… with the growth of wearable technologies, this is a technique that is evolving very fast.” Available at the early bird price of $149.00, you can now reserve it online. No credit card is required and you will be able to cancel your reservation at anytime!
With so much technological development taking place, I must admit I am warming up to the idea of owing a wearable that can do more than just track my fitness. The thought of having my very own Yoda on my wrist or finger seems so out of this world and l love it.
