What It’s Really Like to be a Spire User

Want to know what using Spire is *really* like?

Here at Spire we love what we do, and hear all the time how we’re changing people’s lives for the better, helping them become calmer, more present and aware of their breath. Below are some stories from users about how Spire has helped them, and how they are using the tool in their everyday lives.

 

Many customers want to know, does Spire really work? Michael says, “I’ll admit that the first day I used Spire, I was completely unconvinced that it was correctly tracking my breathing patterns. Day 2 comes around. After leaving my morning class (which Spire told me I was focused and to keep up the good work), I got stuck in some traffic on the commute home. After about 15-20 minutes of sitting in bumper-to-bumper congestion, my Spire began vibrating. I checked the iPhone app upon arriving home, and Spire told me that I was in a state of tension for 20 minutes. The app presented me with several options for reducing my tension including (but not limited to) a quick relaxation boost exercise and an extended guided-meditation. After finishing the guided-meditation, Spire told me I was now in a calm state. These experiences happen nearly every day. Spire gets it right 9 out of 10 times and always provides recommendations for getting me into a calmer state-of-mind.”

 

In addition to boosts, alerts are an appreciated feature for a lot of users. Connor told us that, “Alerts are great. You set them up within their parameters and now the app gives you real time feedback. If I’ve been tense for 3 minutes, Spire will tell me. If I’ve been in an extended period of calm or focus, I’m going to see that, too. And that’s helpful for determining what I was doing/thinking/focusing on to create that state.”

 

We love helping people get more connected to their breath, and start to see patterns in their daily life. Brandon told us that, “The Spire has taught me a lot about when and where my breathing starts to go wrong and this can be quite useful in terms of general self-knowledge. I didn’t realize that I was so tense when practicing piano, for example, or that I can be strangely calm when dealing with a medical emergency.”

 

As a bonus, most people tell us it’s very comfortable and surprisingly light-weight. B. Mam told us, “The spire is small and elegant and clips easily onto the inside of your pants, you immediately forget it is even there – unless it is giving you the friendly customizable vibration reminder to breathe deeper!”
