‘WellBe’ Calm Then: New Bracelet Helps Your Well-Being

It’s only a small bracelet, but yet it will do a world of wonders for your overall well-being, according to its inventor. 

We all know that stress can be a killer; however a New York City inventor has found a way to mitigate it or get rid of it for good.

Zach Sivan has developed the WellBe bracelet, which is a device that wraps around your wrist. The bracelet comes with a mobile app so you can learn what triggers stress and more importantly users will become educated on meditation and a variety of well-being exercises to get rid of stress right away.

“The WellBe bracelet monitors your heart rate and uses a patent pending algorithm to determine your stress and calmness levels based on time, location and people you meet throughout your day,” explains Sivan. “Crafted from cork, the WellBe bracelet is lightweight, durable and soft against your skin.”

In over a week his invention has received over $90,000.00 (USD) in support on INDIEGOGO, a popular crowdfunding website.

The WellBe app is unique in every sense. It gives a user an insightful look at what causes them to be stressed, and recommends programs of sorts to put them in a calmer state of mind, which has a positive benefit on the body. The programs include Meditations, Focused Breathing and Guided Imagination.

“Stress has been scientifically proven to have negative impact on human life, generating negative health implications such as headaches, fatigue, sleep disorders, digestive problems, high blood pressure, heart disease, aging and obesity,” says Sivan. “The longer stress lasts, the worse it is for both your mind and body and the more difficult it is to recover.”

The WellBe bracelet and app helps you monitor and measure stress while encouraging calmness. The app, which can be used on any smartphone, offers a personalized playlist of well-being routines and gives users a before and after report on their progress.

The WellBe app also utilizes unique programs (7.14.21-day plans) from popular mentors who specialize in well-being. Even better is that the app helps monitor stressors based on information provided by the user and sends out timely alerts: “It is probably a good time now to take a deep breath, drink a glass of water and take it easy for a few minutes,” is one alert a user would receive, and it allows them to accept or reject the alert.

The WellBe bracelet and app is not the first of its kind to soon hit the market, but it scores big points for being environmentally friendly since it is made out of cork, and it is visually appealing (two models: beige color and black color). Most of all, and more importantly, the device is a first in offering its mentor programs in real-time for users.

While the invention is expected to hit the market later this year, there is no indication yet on its cost, but one may assume it would be more than affordable as wearable technology like this is not known to be expensive.

Will this new invention be a success? It is safe to say it will be as more and more working professionals these days understand the importance of healthy living and many will try new products of sorts to keep their health - mind and body - in check.

Well-being is the key to living longer, this we all know.

“With the WellBe we can turn a negative emotional momentum into a positive one and achieve that good feeling we desire regardless of the achievement of the actual object,” says Sivan. “We also believe that by sustaining a good calm feeling we are then more likely to achieve those things we want from life.”
