This is the first device to help people with breathwork

Zenytime, a technology company on a mission to help people reduce stress and feel better using their breath, today announced its pre-ordering campaign to introduce its first consumer product, a wellness connected device that turns breathing into game controls. The games coaches users to do healthful breathing exercises on their smartphones or tablets.

Zenytime is the first device designed to help users improve their well-being by playing mobile games using only their breath. Mixing self-improvement and gamification, it promotes serenity, clarity and energy for busy minds and bodies in just a few breaks a day. It is not a wearable device but rather a small companion that fits in pocket, purse, bag, keychain or any carry-on.

The Zenytime solution enables gaming apps to act as breathing coaches thanks to a Bluetooth accessory called “the Puck” which features an exclusive patented sensor that tracks controlled breathing and translates it into game controls. To deliver a comprehensive experience, the Puck also captures heart rate and blood oxygen levels. It integrates Bluetooth 4.0 for long battery life and seamless connection with iOS and Android mobile platforms.

Zenytime games are founded on scientifically proven breathing patterns for improving stress management, cardiovascular health and cognitive and athletic performance. The Zenytime dashboard provides stats, tips and rewards toward a healthier you.

“Our games have been designed to promote deep, rhythmic breathing to bring more oxygen into your cells and to trigger the many short-term rewards of controlled breathing,” said co-founder Celine Vignal. “Zenytime games are adapted to people of any age, as well as exercise enthusiasts and professional athletes.”

The Zenytime team is helped by highly qualified advisors, including Dr. Melissa Conrad Stöppler, recipient of a Physician Scientist Award from the U.S. National Cancer Institute; Dr. Jim Taylor, an internationally-recognized authority on the psychology of performance in business and sport; and Ultramarathon Man Dean Karnazes, named one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People in the World” by TIME magazine.

Zenytime is currently developing games with key players in complementary industries such as yoga, fitness, sports and wellness. Designed to respond to specific interests, branded games will mix partners’ expertise and Zenytime’s competencies, and will be available for free to all Zenytime users.

Zenytime is priced at $99 but is available at $79 during the pre-order period with free shipping in the US and Canada. Shipping expected in the winter, 2014/2015.
