Wearable technology could significantly reduce stress and boost performance in the workplace, a 30-day study by LinkedIn, Spire and Stanford University suggests. Results show that LinkedIn employees who wore a Spire tracker, a small device for tracking breathing patterns, experienced significantly less stress and negative moods and were more productive and focused than non-Spire users. Compared to the control group, Spire users experienced 27% fewer anxious days and 35% more energetic days; they were 37% calmer; and had 25% more focus-related breathing patterns.
