Phyode W/Me Health Wristband
Although health related wearables have been making headlines for a while now, the Phyode health wristband – W/ME – is not your run of the mill smartband but in fact a fully fledged ‘life spectrum analyser’. That’s right a life spectrum analyser complete with an Ultralow-power Instrumentation Amplifier that will help this app-enabled wristband detect the harmonic frequencies of your body. Jargon aside, the Phyode W/Me is actually a pretty smart self-tracker you can use to learn more about your body.
How the Phyode Health Wristband Works
Integrated into the W/Me is Phyode’s “Life Spectrum Analyser”, which is essentially a smart sensor that will transmit data when you touch and hold the surface to the companion app on your Smartphone. It goes further than most other health trackers; in addition to information on heart rate and amount of calories burned the W/Me has been developed to provide useful insights on mental state and agility, breathing patterns and more. Traditionally, these electrical signals need to be measured using AgCl jelly placed between the electrodes and your skin, but this new system uses a dry conduction method developed specifically for this device. The hardware includes some impressively advanced technology, including an analogue-to-digital converter, a digital signal processor and a filter chain.
Your Own Virtual Personal Trainer
The W/Me app translates all of the data gathered by these components into a bright and engaging interface, which will give an overview of your current subconscious mental state (passive, pessimistic, anxious, balanced or excitable), your agility score and your ANS age. And at the centre of the app is a virtual coach “Attu the Whale” who will present to you important information about your body and help you to better optimize your abdominal breathing. The product and coaching techniques are backed by years of medical research, and by following the rhythm put forward by the wristband and app, you’ll supposedly be able to improve your agility and breathing.
