Stress is a plague on our modern day society. Did you know that stress is the basic cause of 60% of all human illness and disease? How about that 3 out of 4 doctor’s visits are for stress-related ailments? The effects of stress on your health are so well documented and the dangers of stress are so real that gadget companies are now considering stress relief to be one of the final frontiers of tech.
One of those solutions is called WellBe. WellBe is a uni-sex wearable bracelet which collects biometric data on you and then determines your stress/calmness levels with its patent pending algorithm. The WellBe smartphone companion app then guides you through meditation, focused breathing, and guided imagination exercises in order to reduce stress when you need to the most. WellBe is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo and has raised $13,166 out of its $100,000 goal.
