Serene™ is a guided deep breathing exercise that helps you relax your body and mind and manage stress.
Deep breathing is known to be an easy and efficient way to manage stress, build resilience and improve focus. The Serene breathing exercise invites you to take a moment to yourself to relax and calm down.
Mindful breathing helps you unwind and shut down your body’s stress response.
When you do the Serene breathing exercise regularly, it can help you manage stress, improve the quality of your sleep and give you a sense of improved overall well-being.
Serene is more than a breathing timer: it makes sure you get the most out of your breathing session.
Serene guides you throughout the exercise: the animation on your watch screen and the vibration feedback help you maintain a regular slow breathing rhythm.
Serene measures your body’s response to the exercise and gives you real-time biofeedback on how you're doing.
After the exercise, you get a summary of the time you spent on the three serenity zones. The higher the zone, the better the synchronization to the optimal rhythm. The more time you spend in the higher zones, the more benefits you can expect to feel in the long term.
Mindful breathing is known to have proven health benefits. Regular diaphragmatic breathing sessions help build resilience and reduce cumulative effects of stress in the body.
Serene guides you to breathe at a slow, regular rhythm – six breaths per minute, which is the optimal breathing rate for stress-relieving effects.
When you breathe slowly, your heart beat starts to synchronize to the rhythm of the breathing and your heart’s beat-to-beat intervals vary more.
