Mother’s Day is always around the corner. If you understand what moms go through, you know Mother’s Day isn’t just a Sunday in May. But knowing what a person goes through isn’t just a child or spouse’s job these days: the gig’s been outsourced — to wearables. If you want to know how Mom (or anybody else) really feels, it helps to check their data. Combine this fact with evidence that people feel better when they look better, and you have the recipe for the Bellabeat LEAF. It’s the kind of wearable that Jackie Kennedy might have worn — stylish, discreet, elegant, and smart.
The wearable market gets more crowded all the time — from the Apple Watch to cool Android timepieces to Fitbit to you name it, there’s an app (and a device) for that. And fashion companies are working hard to incorporate technology into their offerings. The Bellabeat LEAF is positioning itself well in this booming space, especially with its “built-in, guided breathing exercises” containing “relaxation and meditation techniques that can help reduce symptoms of stress.” Now that’s something every Mom can use. Amazon is featuring the Bellabeat LEAF in the “hot and trending” section of its Launchpad platform — the LEAF is priced at $119. The comments are generally raves, such as this nutshell review: “The most low maintenance fitness tracker ever made and it’s gorgeous.”
