New Apple Watch app Breathe turns your wearable into a deep breathing coach

Posted: , by Luis D.

On stage, Apple announced a brand new Apple Watch app created for stress relief. Breathe turns your wearable into a deep breathing coach that reminds you to calm your body and mind by taking moments to go about filling your lungs with precious oxygen in a slow, methodical manner.

When you call the app on your Apple Watch, it will display an animation coordinated with your breathing speed and start measuring the number of breaths you take per minute. When you're done, it will present a summary of your session containing your breaths per minute and average heart rate. It's a small and lightweight app, but it can potentially do wonders....

I just installed the software and tried the Breathe app, it's not bad. Similar to the meditation portion of yoga classes, the watch visually, as well as through the wrist taps, leads you through deep breathing session. Yeah, the visual and tapping isn't 'closing out external stimuli', but after my first session, I felt very relaxed.
