The device is pretty simple. You've got the connector, the cord and ear-click with a handy carry pouch and simple instructions.
The only faults I found with the device was that the instructions tell you to go to iTunes to download the program you need to go with the device. It's easier to go to the App Store. Fault two is that the device comes only with the connector for older IOS devices. I'm hoping the manufacturer will provide a new connector for current users at no cost or a small additional cost. I do have an older iPad I can use this with, but I would like to use it with my iPhone 5.
Now--once you have the program downloaded, the cord connected to your IOS device and the earclip to your ear, all you have to do is relax and watch the feedback on your IOS device. I used relaxation breathing I'd learned from a therapist: inhale for the count of four seconds, hold the breath for four seconds, and exhale for four seconds.
I was in the green zone within seconds. I maintained that for well over five minutes until the cat jumped on my lap and made me laugh. The device scores you--for five minutes I got over 100 points. (Kind of cool to get points)
I got the best night's sleep I've had in a long time and woke up rested. The manual suggests two to three times a day with the device and try to score 300 points. I think this is doable particularly if I could use my iPhone instead of the heavier iPad and I definitely believe the stress relief benefits will be well worth it.

While I certainly recognize that this won't be the case for everyone, I can on the basis of my friend's experience highly endorse this. I have used it myself and definitely feel the effects. The technology is very simple and, whereas it's frankly a bit shocking to me that a simple inexpensive sensor of this kind is being packaged and marketed and sold for $100 (this seems wildly expensive to me), it's been worth every penny to my friend, and I can personally attest to how much it seems to be helping. Whether his ability to access states of "inner balance" on his own has improved or not is unknown to me; what I can see is that, after doing a session, he always feels better, and often feels better for the rest of the day. Some days, he uses it several times a day; other days, not at all.
It's definitely worth a try. If you're anxious, consider it.
Once you download the app, there's an introductory slide show that walks you through how to use the device.
- There is a "training coach" that helps you learn how to run your meditation / breathing session
- You can review your training history and progress and there's a journal that allows you to record any notes regarding specific training sessions
- The HeartMath part of the app is not well designed. It's not intuitive and seems to be a way to sell other products like emWave and HeartMaster.
The device itself doesn't fit into my phone with the iPhone case on. I have a Speck, which is one of the thick plastic cases with a soft lining on the inside. My case doesn't work with car phone chargers either though.
Now for the session itself, the app is basically a breathing coach. It shows you the pace at which you should be breathing while it measures your pulse.
- Could be helpful for someone who's never tried meditation before or is new to the concept of mindful breathing and relaxation
- Does seems to be effective at reducing stress
- Quite expensive, whereas you could just learn breathing exercises by reading materials online
- App is not very user friendly
- Does not fit with case on phone
Overall, I am ambivalent about this tool.Read more ›
