Olive smart bracelet helps you manage stress

Feeling stressed? You might be without even knowing it. Thankfully this bracelet promises to help us conquer stress so we can function better and live healthier lives. It might help some of us keep our hair, too.

Olive monitors your heart rate, reactions in your skin, and trends in your skin temperature to determine when you’re stressed. It then suggests a range of exercises to combat stress, and bring your mind and body back into balance.

It also analyses your habits that contribute to stress, like your physical activity, how well you’re sleeping, and exposure to light. Plus it syncs to your smartphone and accesses your calendar, location, and other data to determine how and why you’re feeling stressed.

It uses haptic feedback to get your attention. You can set reminders to do de-stressing exercises, or it’ll nudge you when it detects your heart rate rising and your skin temperature increasing. Swipe left to take a break and carry out a quick exercise, or swipe right if you don’t feel like it at the moment.

It guides you through the exercises using the app on your phone, as well as by using its calming LED lights and gentle, massaging pulses on your wrist.

You can also tell it when you’re feeling your best and worst. Double tap it to say you’re feeling great, and it will record the moment, so you can see which factors led to you feeling so good. Rub it to say you’re at a low point, and again, it’ll record the moment, and walk you through an exercise to pick you up.

It’s already raised over $67,000 of its $100,000 funding target, and there are still 35 days to go. For more, head to its Indiegogo page.
