Let's not forget that the Spire is indeed the first of his kind, and the fact that I really appreciate what the Spire is able to do right now. I really understand that it is not perfect. But I am very happy that you are listening to us and that you are busy working on it. Therefore, I have a couple questions/suggestions:
When I wear my Spire right now there are many gaps in the data, I receive only feedback on the streaks I have. Now it feels like I am only wearing it for a couple streaks during the day. I would like to have at least some feedback of the "empty" spaces. Thus, I would suggest breathingfrequency over the day, and/or breathingdepth during the day (or a ratio between them?)
There are many implications to what you can do with this data. The first step is becoming conscious about how your breathingdepth/frequency is during the day and how it might change during the day. You'll start to question why it is changing, does it depend on becoming tired, or on specific situations, or physical activity? Consciousness is the first step for changing. I keep a huge dataset of many daily variables, I would love to beta-test the Spire and link breathing frequency/depth with many variables like moods, activity, health etc.
I would love an API, but I would prefer just an export to csv button somewhere in the app or on the website.
Again, many thanks for the Spire and its' development! You are doing an awesome job!
