Bellabeat: The Leaf - Review

I had the pleasure of working with the company Bellabeat in trying out the smart jewelry named the LEAF. 

Let me just say this, its so much more than smart jewelry. 

I have tried different fitness trackers and this one is my favorite by far. 

So what exactly is the LEAF by Bellabeat? 

The LEAF is a sleep, activity and reproductive health monitor that helps you cope with stress through built-in breathing exercises. This smart piece of jewelry works as a tracking system for your health and provides insights and helpful reminders to keep you on track. Monthly cycles (ovulation, period, and contraception intake) are tracked through the app so that you can have greater awareness of your reproductive health. It can be worn as a necklace, bracelet, or a clip. LEAF syncs with the app and all of your data is transferred wirelessly. The LEAF also vibrates to remind the user to either be more active or reduce the intensity of her workouts based on her set preferences.

How is the LEAF different from other activity trackers?

The LEAF device analyzes breathing using a metric for evaluating stress, and the app provides guidance that helps users to manage their stress levels. The LEAF app is also able to shed light on women's reproductive health by allowing them to input and track their period, estimate when they are ovulating, and track their use of contraception. The LEAF system then allows users to see how all aspects of their health are related by providing an overview of sleep, activity, and stress, along with their monthly cycles.

How will LEAF help me?

By tracking your breathing through breathing exercises, the LEAF can help you relieve stress. By tracking every movement, the LEAF can tell you when you need more or less activity via a vibrating smart which goes off based on your activity preferences. By measuring how long you spend in each sleep stage, the LEAF tells you how long and how well you've slept. The LEAF app can also help with understanding your reproductive health through ovulation, period, and contraception tracking.

How does LEAF track my movement, sleep, and stress?

The LEAF has highly accurate sensors that measure every movement including large movements like running, walking, and climbing, as well as small movements like breathing (while you are in a seated or in a stationary position). The LEAF measures the rise and fall of your breath, which is used as a metric for stress. By tracking your every movement, the LEAF measures your overall activity and reminds you when you could use more or less activity. By measuring how long you spend in each sleep stage, the LEAF tells you how long and how well you've slept.

How do you charge it? How long does the battery last?

The LEAF operates on a removable coin cell battery CR 2032 that can easily be replaced when it is exhausted. The battery life is approximately 6 months.

My Opinion

I love so much about the bellabeat LEAF tracker. This has been my favorite health tracker I've ever used (and I've tried a few of the well known trackers). I LOVE that the battery lasts 6 months! It makes it so easy to remember to keep the tracker with me everyday, and I don't have to even think about charging it. I love that its accurate! It really does match what I'm walking, working out, sleeping, and I've never seen it be off from what I was actually doing!

I adore that you can wear it in so many ways! As a necklace, bracelet, and even pin it to your clothing. I usually pin it to my shirt or pants, and I never worry about it falling off. I also really enjoy the app. It tracks my sleeping, period cycle, steps, calories, and gives you motivating little sayings. Also I love that you can do breathing exercises, which is my meditation that I've been really enjoying. I aim to get mediation in, over 10,000 steps, and at least 7 1/2 hours of sleep a night (more if I can). 

The design is beautiful done and you can pick from the original, Silver LEAF design is crafted using elegant and recyclable American ashwood in a neutral beige color combined with hypoallergenic stainless steel. The LEAF also comes in a Rose Gold version, made out of beautiful Black wood and a durable rose gold steel plating. 

I am so in love with my LEAF that it really keeps me accountable and motivates me to hit all my healthy goals. Interested in getting a LEAF for yourself, just check out the website here:
