I love the Spire I got for Christmas. It really does work well and accurately predicts when I'm stressed. The app could use some user-friendly additions though. It takes 4 clicks to get to the keyboard to add a new tag. Could be 1 or 2. And there's no option to add the new tag to the list for quick choosing. There's no option for more details on the data other than Calm, Focus, Stress, and Activity periods. I'd love to see these in an update and would make this already great product into an amazing product.
While I love the concept, the app does not work well at all on Google Pixel running Android 7.1.1. I am most likely going to return my Spire because of the Android app and it's a shame because it is a great idea. 2/18/2017 Update - I should mention that support is awesome! I keep working with them through email and am trying one last attempt by uninstalling the app, cycling the phone power, disabling auto app restore and reinstalling the app. Here's hoping!
The current implementation keeps turning on the phone display for every notification, even if you have chosen not to display these alerts on the locked screen. Finally, had to turn off notifications completely. Would love an "Only vibrate Spire" option that sends alerts to the Spire without generating notifications on the phone. Btw, I am on a Samsung S7 Edge running Nougat.
I received my Spire yesterday. I have tried multiple times to set it up. I receive an error and am booted off when I'm setting up my weight, height, birthdate. And yes, I've installed the app several times. No luck.
Lots of connection issues. More that half the days I've worn it there is no vibration and no data. I always have my phone and my bluetooth is on. I am NOT happy at all.
Don't care for the new app, released on February 14, 2016. The screens are cluttered and the interface is just plain messy. No easy way to tell if the Spire is synching properly (or at all). Synch seems to be indicated by a teensy rotating arrow on one of the screens, but I'm only guessing about that as the arrow is not labeled. App is buggy. Caused excessive heat in my phone, apparently when updating from previous version. Caused several malfunctions in touch screen with other apps, including the phone itself. Problems got so bad I thought my phone had gone around the bend and spent a couple of hours on the phone with Verizon tech support. Overheating and other problems eventually cleared up and the new app didn't cause any other difficulty, but the design flaws are legion and frustrating. App and Spire don't seem to play well together. Synch is delayed for hours. With the new version, Spire fixed something that wasn't broken--and now IS broken.
