The popularity of fitness and activity trackers has sparked thinking about the potential applications and possibilities for these wearables beyond physical health, like the Sentio Solutions' Feel.
A Feel prototype will be introduced at CES 2016, with a form that is somparable to many wearable trackers already on the market. However, what sets Feel apart is its ability to measure the wearer's emotions throughout the day and make suggestions to enhance or alleviate certain moods. To do this, Feel taps into biometric signals like the pulse, skin temperature and galvanic skin responses.
If a user feels satisfaction after completing a workout, Feel records this data in order to provide solutions for negative feelings in the future. In addition to providing a comprehensive "emotional wellness plan" that includes meditation and breathing, the companion app also reminds users to "be active" or "laugh more" on occasion.
