Today We Took a Deep Breath and Pushed the Button

4 years, 74 prototypes, 8 apps, and about 1 million breaths analyzed, we are proud to make Spire available to the world. Today we started taking pre-orders for Spire, the first activity tracker to measure breathing and state of mind.

We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to the entire Spire team in San Francisco and Beijing for their hard work, and to our team’s families for their love and support.

As we mentioned just the other day, we started cutting steel on fabricating the Spire hardware – a long journey from when Spire was a germ of an idea in Neema’s brain on a bus ride in Laos.

Beyond the intricacies of hardware design, many years of research have gone into the analysis and understanding of breath data. We had a lot of work to do to capture the signal, make sense of the stream, and make it understandable and actionable for the end user.

We were ready, and we knew it. It was time to take pre-orders. And so, we’re pleased and proud to mark this milestone in Spire development. To our early supporters and testing guinea pigs, thank you for being a part of our story.

You can read more about our launch in the press release. In it, we describe the core of the Spire experience, making a consumer device that:

  • is more useful for people throughout the day, whether they are active or still
  • gives people easy access to know and understand their state of mind, and
  • make a physical product that looks great on the body and on your nightstand

We’d love to hear from you, you can reach us at or on FacebookTwitterInstagram, or Pinterest.
