just wondering....

I get the notification a couple times a day (I know you can modify it, but I just leave it as it is)

I do go through it when I’m relaxed - not quite sure it does actually relax me though!

What about everyone else? Is it a useless feature in everyone’s eyes?

I turned off the notification ever since it was introduced. Haven’t used it once. Same with the stand reminders.

I was doing one a day, but then missed a few weeks. I’m trying to get back to one a day.

I’ll never turn stand notification off, it’s too important, but I have turned Breathe off. Not sure what good it do to my body but I guess if Apple has a ring for Breathe just like for stand I might do it daily. :p

Do it when I can, dismiss it when I cannot. Will not turn it off, as I think it is a good reminder. It is easy to dismiss and move on.

I have it turned on for the max notifications. I probably only do it once or twice a day though, if that. Just like to have the option there for a quick start, otherwise, I just dismiss it. And I really like the stand reminders. If I get the notification at work and I'm not in a meeting, I immediately get up and walk around.

Yeah thanks for the replies everyone - I just didn’t know if there’s is a scientific reason why sitting down and breathing keeps you more healthy - is it just a tool for you to chill out and relax for people who don’t chill out?

Google the benefits of meditation.

Briefly, your brain is running all the time.. if you jogged all day long you would take a break cause you physically feel it. Basically meditation is a brain break for the monkey brain that is always looking for stimuli. I could write a novel here but that’s the long and short of it. If you want to research it more, look up the paneal gland, connecting to the universe and inner peace.

It was the first thing I turned off when I got my Apple
Watch. I found it very irritating as it seemed to come up at the most inappropriate and inconvenient times. :(

My body already knows when to breathe so that's useless
