Review from Mike Decuir
Previous issues with connectivity between the app and the Spire device have been resolved in recent builds of the app. I don't care about looking at the activity data collected by the Spire, but I love the fact that the stone can vibrate to alert me when I am tense and may not realize it. There is still a lot of room for optimization in making the vibrations for different states more distinct and when they are repeated in relatively short succession, but the general app and Spire interaction seems to be functioning well.
March 24, 2017The connection seems to be much more stable with latest version. We've had some issues with some of the libraries we were using. We have another update coming up that fixes some of the lingering bluetooth. Check out the latest version and update your review with what you think.
I really like the Spire stone, but I've noticed my battery life has decreased significantly since installing and using the Spire app. Spire's site claims the app will have zero impact on battery life, but this doesn't seem to be the case with me. I checked my battery usage settings and see that Spire is using 2% of my battery life over 9 hours, which is the same amount as Facebook has used in that time. Devs, please fix this or find a more efficient and optimized way to run the app! My average battery life has decreased noticeably since installing this app.
I find the Spire quite accurate. It has allowed me a visual to how well my ADHD medication is working. The app does seem to have bugs. For instance if I try to integrate the gallery, calender or maps I start having connectivity issues. I also don't receive daily or weekly summaries, and it would be awesome if you could export data.
Please update, seems like the device or app loses Bluetooth connection. Randomly at times. I will wear all day and no data. Stone fully charged.
I just got a Spire stone for Christmas. The App is not letting me create an account or log in. I am on a Samsung S7 edge, SM-G935P. Running Android 7.0 software build g935pvpu5BQL1 over a Sprint fully unlimited employee line. Any updates or help would be greatly appreciated. The Spire appears connected via Bluetooth.
I really like the concept, and it seems to work pretty nicely when it is connected via Bluetooth, but it consistently loses connection. So I never get a warning when needed. Then when I go into the app, it reconnects and I get all the warnings at once. Spire: Please focus all your attention on fixing this issue, because almost every android user experiences this issue.
It's a great idea, and while is connected, generate very interesting data. However, it has connectivity issues. I need to constantly open the app for the device to connect. If I don't open the app in hours, I won't record any data :/ Please fix the connectivity issues because I really like the device!!
