    Anyone liking this? Is there a way to adjust the frequency of the reminders?

    Watch app on iPhone. Tap Breathe app in app list > Breathe Reminders.

    Mine's just alerted for the first time since updating to Watch OS3 this morning.

    I guess it'll help for stressful situations. Might have to turn the volume down as the alert was much louder than expected!

    So you can't see the Breathe app at all? Not even in the app layout from pressing the digital crown?

    Let me preface my post with that I don't have watchOS3 yet, so I'm basing my opinion only on what I've seen and read.

    I think that whole breathe app/reminders/philosophy is something that might be useful in day to day living for some folks, but I think its completely unnecessary on the watch.

    I am loving this new app. I do mindfulness breathing for more than year and the part I struggle the most is to start meditations and focusing. The app helps me start my meditation by "tricking" my mind to focus on the breath and the taps. After that, I keep my meditation as normal.

    It's in the honeycomb, but not in settings.

    The watch or the phone?

    Reboot both devices. Failing that, try repairing Watch.

    Thinking about breathing is the only way I know to feel panicky:eek:. I cut this off right away.

    My wife teases me about it but I really do like this app. It's amazing what a minute of deep breathing and relaxation can do. My one complaint, and this is kind of a big one, is I'd rather set it to pop up at certain times of the day. For instance, in the car on the way to work (7:00), on my first break (9:30), at lunch (12:30), on my second break (2:00), on the drive home (4:00), and before bed (9:00). Since most of us have structured days it seems like it would be much more convenient to set actual times vs. every X hours.

    Kind of like golf, too many people play golf swing out on the course instead of just golf.

    I've just set it as the first icon in my dock. So it's easy enough to access whenever I want a quick session...

    I breathe, pretty much, all day every day so I disabled the app they included to remind you.

    I love it, I don't get very stressed but it calms me down even more and I find it oddly satisfying

    You can put its Complication on watch face and start manually any time you want.

    I hadn't done meditation in years, but this app has gotten me motivated to start again. I'm liking the reminders it gives me to meditate. Easy enough to ignore if I'm busy, but good to get reminders to get into the habit again. Same thing with Activity rings -- helps me keep up with daily walks to fill the rings, instead of staying in all day just because I'm not motivated to go out.
