Zensorium unveiled Tinke with Lightning connector for iOS devices. Tinke uses optical sensing technologies to capture blood volume changes and quantifies your fitness and relaxation levels into indexes for easy comparison. Zensorium encourages that these indexes trend alongside one another to easily understand your fitness progression from your iOS device:
Vita Index: A fitness score that is created by piecing together data collected from heart rate, blood oxygen level and respiratory rate. Zen Index: A quantified score for your state of relaxation that uses heart rate variability as a basis. KEEP FIT
VITA - It is important to know your fitness level, even during times that you are not engaged in physical activity. Use Tinke only when you are at rest to measure, monitor and trend your heart rate, respiration rate and blood oxygen level.
ZEN - Practicing mindful breathing can help to energize and calm ourselves during stressful situations. Built for today's fast paced lifestyle, Tinke's Zen measurement enables you to breathe better and measure your level of relaxation at the end of a 60-second practice.
The Vita and Zen Indexes serve as a form of knowledge and encouragement for you to maintain or improve on. Being fit and well starts from within and monitoring your weight alone is not a good indicator. A four week training program conducted by a fellow Tinke user demonstrates how his Vita and Zen indexes gradually improves despite his weight staying relatively unchanged.
The Zensorium Tinke is not only a unique and stylish device that enables you to know yourself from the inside out but also a new and innovative way to monitor fitness and wellness.
The Zensorium Tinke with Lightning connector is scheduled to be available in October 2013 and will sell for $119. For more info visit shop.zensorium.com
