Learn the language of breath with Oxa, a new smart wearable for breath analysis
Oxa is the first of its kind to capture clinical-grade data on the depth and speed of breathing with precision, says Vincent Martinez, CEO of Oxa. “This information combined with guided exercises via the Oxa app enables users to learn how to breathe to feel and live better.

The journey to better health starts with a single breath. Breathe well with Oxa, which is launched today. Oxa is a breathing monitoring smart wearable that teaches users how to breathe by providing real-time data and feedback about their breathing and the vital signs it affects. Oxa is the first wearable device to unlock the potential of breathing, giving users total control over when to feel relaxed, energized or focused, and even sleep better.
The relationship between breathing, relaxation and meditation is well established, but a tool is missing to link the three together and help users strengthen the connection between them. With Oxa, information is power. Learn the language of breath and optimize mental, emotional and physical well-being. Oxa works by combining a wearable shirt or bra, sensors and app to provide data and exercises to help users take control of their breathing and overall health.
“Oxa is the first of its kind to capture clinical-grade data on the depth and speed of breathing with precision,” said Vincent Martinez, CEO of Oxa. “This information combined with guided exercises via the Oxa app enables users to learn how to breathe to feel and live better.”
Wearable healthcare technology is a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide. In the US, a quarter of the population already uses a smart wearable. Meditation has also seen tremendous growth in recent years with 500 million people practicing it on a daily basis.
There are a number of wearable devices for monitoring heart rate, physical activity, blood pressure and more. None are designed to accurately track your breath in the moment. All other wearables provide biofeedback data averaged over minutes, hours or even days. They also estimate metrics such as heart rate variations and breathing rate. The result is an overwhelming amount of data with no guidance on measures to improve well-being.
Oxa is the only wearable that provides real-time biofeedback data on breathing rate and depth, heart rate variations and body temperature. No averages or estimates. It works to measure breathing rate and volume by a process called respiratory inductance plethysmography. Electrocardiography reads heart rate and heart rate variations while infrared temperature sensors capture skin temperature. In the Oxa app, users can see how changes in their breathing affect other vital signs.
Oxa takes things a step further, and also provides an immersive, gamified, educational experience. More than just a tracker, the app provides audio and visual cues that guide users through breathing exercises in real time. These elements adjust and change to reflect the user’s physiological data and breathing patterns. Personalized journeys help users master and control their breathing, and take responsibility for their own health.
Oxa is available in dark navy shirt or bra. Each Oxa comes with the Oxa sensor that attaches to the bra or shirt. The app is free to download on iOS and Android devices and is compatible with Strava, Google Fit and Apple health apps for viewing data.
