Flow is a really good product. For example, I am having a bit of cold in this days and I could see that the breathe was different from the days in which I was feeling fit and totally healthy.
The product is a real innovation and it's so cool to see what happens to your breathing during effort.
I was really impressed with the ability to see my breathing rhythm in real time on my phone.
With two FLOW™ sensors (on the chest and abdomen) Njål sees for the first time how he breathes while singing. “When singing I push the contents of my abdomen upwards, and diaphragm downwards to control the pressure and speed of air flow.”
It’s an amazing tool! I use it to help my students create a state of calmness through very easy pranayama (yoga breathing exercises).
The breathing pattern is a visualization of your breathing. It gives a precise visualization of how you breathe in/breathe out and how it is coordinated with movement during your activity.
Sweetzpot FLOW™ measures your breathing per minute. Usually, at rest, your breathing varies between 6 and 8 liters per minute. During sleep, breathing can be as low as 3 liters per mininute and can reach 160 liters per minute and above during high intensity athletic activity.
The measurement of heart rate has been around since its introduction in the early 80's. Seeing how your FLOW and heart-rate simultaneously respond to work intensities gives you vital information on how your body works.
