Wearable technology can now Feel Emotions

The popularity of fitness and activity trackers has sparked thinking about the potential applications and possibilities for these wearable beyond physical health like the Sentio Solutions Feel. A prototype will be introduced at CES 2016 with a form that is comparable to many wearable trackers already on the market. However, what sets Feel apart is its ability to measure the wearer's emotions throughout the day and make suggestions to enhance or alleviate certain moods. To do this, Feel taps into bio-metric signals like the pulse, skin temperature and galvanic skin responses.

If a user feels satisfaction after completing a workout, Feel records this data in order to provide solutions for negative feelings in the future. In addition to providing a comprehensive "emotional wellness plan" that includes meditation and breathing, the companion app also reminds users to "be active" or "laugh more" on occasions.
