My newest piece of jewellery is beautiful, stylish, and …. a health tracker
Women around the world understand that beauty, and wellbeing, and health come by being smart about it.
Beauty is something every women has in her, and it is about bringing it out!
Health is something we all want in life and it is about being preventive. And after all, the secret to happiness includes health…
Pampering is out, healthcare is in!
In our modern understanding, health is no more limited to the absence of illness and merely physical, it is all about balancing mind, body & soul.
And where fitness trackers and heart rate monitors help us in achieving out fitness/training goals, finally there is a piece that goes beyond, by helping me balancing mind & body.
So here it is: my newest piece of jewellery is beautiful, stylish, and …. a health tracker! Called Bellabeat Leaf.
Design & Technical
I opted for the classic design leaf nature silver edition, and love the simplicity and elegance. Made of hypoallergenic stainless steel, it comes with a necklace and wrap leather bracelet. It has some highly sensitive movement sensors and a secure data backup, it runs 24/7 and works with both, Android and iOS.
I have downloaded the app to my phone and set my personal goals, i.e. nightly sleep of 8 hours.
The app in mint green look provides a simple visual snap shot of my daily activity, sleep, and meditation and can also detect patterns that may cause stress before it hits me.
So far (I have used the leaf for about 2 weeks now), I have never been more sensitive to stress than about 30%!
What does my leaf do for me exactly?
It tracks the duration and quality of my sleep
Bellabeat leaf helps me to train my mind with guided meditation exercises
4) menstrual cycle
The period tracking with valuable feedback about reproductive health is not so important to me anymore 🙂
It tames my stress and keeps it at bay
Usually I add my sleep time in the morning manually, and sync my leaf to the app (by simply double tapping the leaf) in the afternoon. I also add some of my activities manually, as I do not want to wear my beautiful and stylish health tracker for certain activities like horse back riding or swimming (it is not waterproof!).
How I can wear it?
The good news is that there are multiple ways of wearing the leaf. It has a built in hook and clip, so I can attach it to my clothes, or hang it from a chain. As choker, pendant, bracelet… I have many options.
My leaf has become something like a favourite piece of jewellery, almost a little friend. The only thing I still have to get used to is the wrap around bracelet, that is sometimes a little tedious to strap. But otherwise: I love my Bellabeat leaf!
