By combining the features of a fitness tracker with an overall reading of emotional states, Sence can help manage stress and vitality levels and better understand what emotions people feel and when.
Los Angeles (PRWEB) October 31, 2016
Today, Planexta Inc. launched their Kickstarter campaign for Sence, the first emotion tracker to use electrocardiography (ECG) technology to help users better understand their emotional states. It is now available on Kickstarter starting at $129.
Sence uses Heart Rate Variability (HRV) to measure over 64 different emotions and simultaneously monitor the events that may trigger specific feelings. HRV provides the accuracy of an ECG, which is 250 times greater than traditional fitness trackers which use optical sensors that measure blood flow.
“We set out to create the first consumer wearable that tracks emotions with medical-grade technology,” said Co-Founder Eugene Nayshtetik. “Sence uses patent-pending R-Peak Tracking technology to measure heart activity. Sence gives wearers a dashboard of their physical and emotional health at a level of detail unmatched by existing wearables.”
Sence syncs with calendars, allowing users to track events, meetings, workouts and their emotional reactions at the time, to pinpoint stressors and identify patterns.
- Records heart rate passively at a frequency of the user’s choosing so they can collect accurate readings without having to stop their activities.
- Tracks over 40 emotions such as enjoyment, nervousness, euphoria, exhaustion, aggression, sadness, calmness, and anger.
- Is waterproof, ergonomically designed, and has a 48 hour battery life.
- Functions as a fitness tracker, recording steps, daily physical activity and physical recovery.
- Connects with SenceHub, the mobile app that transforms raw data into easy-to-read analyses
“By combining the features of a fitness tracker with an overall reading of emotional states, Sence can help manage stress and vitality levels and better understand what emotions people feel and when. As a fitness tracker, Sence helps to prevent injuries caused by overtraining and and gauges how the body reacts to different regimes,” said Nayshtetik.
Co-Founder Tetiana Botsva adds, “Our goal was to create something that could help us better understand our overall health with seamless integration and portability. With features like calendar integration, Sence can tell wearers when and why they feel happy, sad, or stressed and can coach them on how to emphasize the good and reduce the bad in their life.”
Sence’s Kickstarter campaign runs from October 31 to December 1, 2016. For a full rundown of the pledge levels visit their Kickstarter page. Media wishing to interview their personnel should contact PR agent, Jackson Wightman at +1 (514) 605-9255.
