The Foci wearable is a unique device as it uses state-of-the-art technology to help users achieve a state of focus and remind users to stay on the important tasks at hand. Designed to be clipped to the waist, this tiny device tracks the breaths a user takes and then utilizes machine learning to analyze what a user's breathing says about their mental state. All of this information from the Foci wearable is shown on an accompanying app, which indicates when a user is focused, distracted, stressed or in a state of peak performance.

The accompanying app for the Foci wearable is key to its ability for enhancing performance, as it not only displays a person's mental state but also notifies them when changes need to be made. When the wearable notices a stray from a state of performance it will notify users through their smartphone and will suggest strategies for better focus.
