Lovin' Life 9/5/2019: Just Breathe.....

It's been just over a month since I got an Apple Watch and I don't know how I lived before it came into my life.  

Initially, the features that got my attention related to activity tracking.  It's mind-blowing just how much physiological data a mainstream watch can calculate from the information it obtains from your wrist.  I've also enjoyed using the watch to shuffle through my music playlists, to open messages and of course to check the time (globally while I was away and in between timezones).  

Features I don't see myself using are the camera and maps.  They're still phone functions for me.

But the slow burn, surprise hit feature of my Apple Watch has been the Breathe app.  I'm a human joke, I know, to be dependent on my watch to tell me how to breathe but it is what it is.  Breathe forces me to step away for a minute to regroup and recharge.  That minute of regulated inhalations and exhalations are more invigorating than that second mug of coffee or bar of chocolate.  Plus it takes less effort than trying to get either.

I've ironically discovered the power of the breath via a fancy watch.  How twenty nineteen.

Do you have a smart watch?  What's your favourite feature of it?


  1. The joy of using smart technologies :) I don't have a smart watch. I do deep breathing every day when I meditate and also in my yoga class.#lovin'lifelinky

  2. I don't have anything like this SSG but my daughter has one and I'm seriously considering one for myself. At the moment I just use Map My Run on my iphone when running but this type of watch has so many other features I could use. Thanks for the review and have a great week. #lovin'lifelinky

  3. I don't have a smart watch but I'm interesting to hear what people think of it as I don't really know much about them and what they have to offer. I hadn't even heard of the 'breathe app' but it sounds very twenty nineteen indeed! Stop. Breathe. Be mindful and present. I'll have to Google and learn more. ;-) xo #TeamLovinLife

  4. I use a fitbit, but there are absolutely times when I could be reminded to breathe!

  5. Oh now you've done it. I WANT one again...I thought I had left that desire I want one. Boooo. Seriously it is too expensive for me but I know how much I love new things like these... sigh.

  6. I have had my Apple Watch for several years, love it. I have had a few strange looks when I have answered
    my phone via my watch when I have been out.

  7. I really do love my Apple watch. I also love the Breathe App. It's a great way to remind myself to focus on me a brief minute or two.
