Unlike other air quality monitors, Breathe is a sensor you can wear. The device helps crowdsource air pollution data by being extremely portable and able to wear wherever you go.

The small white clip can be attached to just about any garment, from belt loops to scarves. As you go about your day, Breathe measures the amount of toxicity in the air in different environments you enter into. An accompanying app lets you track the pollution you encounter, enabling you to avoid certain areas. Whether you are particularly concerned about the environment or have health issues like asthma, you will receive notifications if where you are is particularly harmful to your health. Air quality monitors like Breathe also give you more insight into the issue globally.
