With this version, we fixed an animation bug, eliminating the occasional crashes during the breathing exercise on various devices.
MyCalmBeat is a Brain Exercise by MyBrainSolutions.com that helps improve your ability to manage stress through slow breathing. Slow breathing allows you to increase the variability of your heart rate to decrease stress, improve focus and build resilience.
Using the MyCalmBeat heart rate monitor (available through www.mycalmbeat.com/mycalmbeat), you can calculate your personal best breathing rate where you are likely to be most calm. At this rate, you receive the biggest benefit from your training. You can then train by breathing regularly at your personal best breath rate and tracking your ‘calmness’ over time with the MyCalmBeat heart rate monitor. You can then train on the go with the MyCalmBeat App.
How does it work? Your breathing rate affects your heart rate patterns, which affects how your brain deals with stress. And all these processes are tightly interconnected. While it’s difficult to directly control your heart rate, or your brain function, you can control your breathing rate. By regularly slowing your breathing down, you can improve your heart rate variability, which will allow your brain to more effectively deal with the stressful situations you encounter.

Its awesome! I would appreciate it if the app creators would extend the time measurement on the grid & enlarge the breath capacity for super breath :D
If you change the time it freezes, BOO! Other than that good potential. Droid
Using it and making health improvements... nice
Samsung Moment. Perfect for deep breathing exercises.
From graphic to overall setup, this is an above average app
Nice and simple. Helps me breathe a lot deeper than normal with a better rhythm. Great
Could use more breath rates, alternate tones, and the ability to run with the screen off. Otherwise, thus is a decent relaxation app.
S'ok. Backlight stays on during exercise. Wastes battery.
Nice, great app. Would work better with a buzz function for when silence is needed, like before bed when I use it most.
Pros: nice visual for inhale/exhale, nice tone Cons: inhale/exhale time inconsistent, can't change inhale/exhale period independently, no vibrate
