The simply-named “Leaf” is a non-intrusive sleep, activity, and reproductive health monitor and tracker that is different than your typical “smart” gadget such as wearables. With built-in breathing exercises that are perfect for yogis, as well as an organic design, the Leaf Urban and Leaf Nature can help you to reduce stress, keep an eye on your sleep quality, and help you find inner peace.
Forget the diamonds and forget the expensive gadgets — the Leaf is a more humble approach that is both versatile and in-line with the life that yogis try to lead.
What Makes the Leaf Different?
What makes the Leaf so unique is that it is the first wearable technology that can predict stress. You can assess your stress levels and have a better insight into what may be causing them, so that you can manage your stress better.
The Leaf Urban / The Leaf Nature
There are two different models (in a variety of color and material options) of the Leaf to choose from: the Leaf Urban and the Leaf Nature. These incredibly beautiful and minimalistic monitors are non-obtrusive and can be be worn as a bracelet, clip, or necklace. No matter how you want to use the Leaf as you go about your yoga, daily life, or workout, you can be rest assured that the Leaf will track your movements.
Let’s take a look at the specifications and see what these monitors can do for you.
The Leaf Urban
The elegant geometric design of the Leaf is a stunning testament of how advanced technology does not have to interfere in your life but accomodate it.
Made from certified water-resistant, wood composite and stainless steel materials, this Leaf blends into your outfit and life seamlessly. It is versatile as it can be worn as a bracelet, a necklace, or a clip, and is comfortable so you can wear it all day, during your yoga sessions, and during the night as you sleep.
The Leaf Urban gets to know you in a number of ways through tracking your:
- Period (Menstruation)
- Stress Level
In addition to tracking your fitness activities, your sleep quality, and even your time of the month, the Leaf Urban also features stress awareness technology, which is discussed more below.
- Smart Hardware
- 14-Day Memory
- Motion Sensor
- Secure Data Backup
- Wireless Sync
- Smart Vibrations
- Sustainable Materials
- Water Resistance
- Smart Alarm
- High Quality Wooden Composite
- Inactivity Alert
The Leaf Urban and Nature are the first wearables on the market that actually predict stress. Through analysis of your stress levels throughout the day, you can use the Leaf to manage your stress better. This game-changing technology can take your stress management to the next level and allow you to tweak your meditation and yoga activities to improve your quality of life.
With these advanced but simple and effective features, you can become a better and happier yogi. As well as its tracking capabilities and stress prediction technology, the Leaf offers guided meditation exercises to help you take control of your health and keep you on track.
This small tracker is very powerful in a variety of ways. For one, you do not have to charge this device every day — or every few days — or even every few months. With a long lasting battery, you simply change the battery in the device around every six months or so. That’s it!
There are also no buttons to mess around with. It is intuitive and with the App, it simply works on it’s own and can be controlled from your smartphone. It has a 14-day memory, so you don’t have to rush at the end of the day to make sure your data is synced up to the App to see your progress.
The Leaf Nature
The Leaf Nature is very much like the Leaf Urban but with a few differences in design. With a more “woodsy” look that is less steel and more organic, the Nature model does everything the Urban does.
Urban and Nature Specs:
- Smart Alarm
- Stress Tracking
- Period Tracking (Menstruation)
- Sleep Tracking
- Meditation Sessions
- Activity Tracking
Activity tracking is useful for just about everyone looking to keep an eye on their health and quality of life. For yogis, it is just as important as sleep tracking, meditating, and reducing stress. The Leaf has an activity and step tracker that will show you visually and empirically about your day and how active you were. This includes how many steps you took and calories burned.
You can add custom activities in the App to keep track of as well, so you can get the most out of your precision activity tracking technology.
Tracking one’s sleep is an important part in reducing stress and maintaining one’s health. The Leaf tracks your movement during sleep, such as the duration of sleep and the quality (if you woke up during the night and how many times). With your application (via your smartphone), you can see a visual graph of your sleep and see the numbers.
The meditation session is a great aspect of the Leaf that is very unique. As you know, being active and sleeping well are a part of a healthy life, but overcoming stress is also extremely important. The Leaf Nature will guide you and teach you how to train your mind through guided meditation exercises.
Stress is tracked just as much as activity and sleep is. The Leaf monitors your stress levels and can create an overview that you can see in your App. This will allow you to see patterns of stress as they emerge and do your best to stop it before it occurs again.
Finally, the Leaf tracks your menstrual cycle, which is unique to you and can say a lot about your individual health. The period tracking feature includes a fertility tracking and ovulation tracking for those days of the months beyond your period. Even if you are not expecting to have a child, having information about your reproductive health is a great tool for you to understand your body’s cycles and unique rhythms.
No Screens, No Buttons
Along with no need to charge this device due to its 6 month battery life, there are no buttons or screens either. Just you, your body, and mind combine with the intuitive design and technology to make the Leaf non-intrusive.
The technology engine inside of the Leaf Nature and Urban is fascinating because it is packed with sensitive movement sensors as well as a secure data backup. The Leaf Nature and Urban runs 24/7 — when you are sleeping, meditating, practicing yoga, and when you are active. The battery lasts 6 months at constant running time, which is extremely impressive.
