Apollo Neuro – Health & Wellness Wearable Device for Stress-Relief

Stress is one of the most common problems that people can face nowadays, especially now, during these hectic times. In fact, stress can easily impact our bodies and minds in countless ways. Not only can stress have a negative impact in our energy and focus, but it can also make it harder for us to sleep during the night. Nevertheless, thanks to the wonders of wearable technology, we now have brand-new ways of fighting stress so that we can ultimately decrease our stress levels. One of those ways is none other than the by wearing the Apollo Neuro on a regular basis.

The Apollo Neuro is a wearable device that can regulate your HRV (Heart Rate Variability) via gentle vibrations in order to improve your resilience to stress, which can ultimately help you to focus, recover, sleep, and more.

WHAT IS HRV?

For those wondering exactly what HRV (Heart Rate Variability) is, this is the metric that can be used to measure both your heart rate and stress level.

Generally speaking, a higher HRV tends to mean that your body is adapting to deal with stress better, meaning that it’s when your body should be more capable of healing and recovering. Contrarily to that, a lower HRV might mean that you’re getting sick (or you’re already sick) or that you’re under a lot of stress and you (and your body) are not being able to deal with it to well.

In fact, a recent study conducted by the University of Minnesota has demonstrated that the Apollo Neuro can help you improve your resilience to stress in a very effective way, mainly in terms of enhancing your athletic performance, reducing your blood pressure, and reducing your heart rate.

Not only that, but one other study from the University of Pittsburgh clearly show that the Apollo Neuro can also help to improve your focus levels and your cognitive performance, as well as help to improve your Heart Rate Variability.

Lastly, on another study that was also conducted by the University of Pittsburgh, the research showed that the Apollo Neuro could also help people that are passionate about meditation to achieve a significantly deeper meditative state while using this health and wellness wearable device.

MAIN USES OF THE APOLLO

Basically, the Apollo Neuro works together with its Smartphone Companion App, which offers you different operation modes that allow you to choose exactly how you’d like to feel. As such, you can use the Apollo in many different ways, like using it to clear your head, to improve energy, to improve socialization, as well as to help you improve your focus levels, to achieve deeper meditative states, to simply relax and unwind, or ultimately, to get better nights of sleep.

Overall, the Apollo can be used on a day by day basis to help you balance out your body’s nervous system in order to more easily help your body recover from stress. Additionally, when used over time, the Apollo can also help your body to naturally improve its resilience to stress and bounce back more quickly whenever a stress-situation is triggered.

So, in case you’re still not convinced, join us on our detailed review to the Apollo Neuro, where we check out its design and see exactly how this health and wellness wearable device works as well as see exactly what it has to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with its design, the Apollo Neuro features a very simple and ultra-minimalist design that is quite pleasing to look at, aesthetically speaking. That said, contrarily to many other health and wellness wearable devices that you can currently find available on the market, the Apollo’s simple interface makes it fairly easy to use, as the device only features 2 buttons.

Now, the main unit comes integrated within a durable yet super-smooth adjustable Velcro bracelet that’s actually quite comfortable to wear.

In fact, this health and wellness wearable device comes with two (x2) straps of different lengths included, which are basically a Wrist Strap (slightly shorter than the ankle strap) and an Ankle Strap (slightly longer than the wrist strap).

Now, in most cases, you’ll probably be looking to wear the Apollo on your wrist, and for those cases, I’d say that the wrist strap is actually quite comfortable for all-day wear, unless you really have to work with your laptop’s or desktop computer’s keyboard a lot, or alternatively, that you really have to write by hand (meaning pen and paper) a lot throughout your working day.

Alternatively to wearing it on your wrist, it’s worth to mention that if you prefer, you could also wear the Apollo Neuro around your ankle by simply installing the unit within its Velcro Ankle Strap, which in my opinion, would be a great choice of use for anyone who works with their hands a lot.

CONNECTIVITY

Since the Apollo is supposed to be connected with its Smartphone Companion App (as mentioned earlier), it also features Bluetooth BLE 5.0 Connectivity.

Additionally, whenever you want to have the unit on “Stand-By”, you can also activate its Airplane mode.

BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE

Now, since the Apollo Neuro is designed to be used as a wearable health device, the main unit is obviously powered by an internal rechargeable battery, which, once fully charged, can provide you with around 6 to 8 hours of continuous use.

That said, to recharge the device’s internal battery, you simply have to connect its Micro-USB to USB-A Charging Cable to both its Micro-USB Charging port and to its Power Charger’s USB-A Charging port.

For its charging time, you’re require to have the device’s battery charging for at least a couple of hours, so my advice would be to leave it charging over night (unless your main goal is to wear it during your sleep time to ultimately help you feel more calm and more relaxed).

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Now, in case you’re wondering about exactly how the Apollo Neuro works, the general idea behind it is that this health and wellness wearable device is going to give you the benefits of Meditating or Deep Breathing without you necessarily having to do that constantly.

As mentioned before, the way the Apollo Neuro can achieve this is by using gentle, yet very specific vibration patterns, which are basically used to help your body activate its Parasympathetic Nervous System – which is responsible for our body’s rest and digestion response when the body is relaxed, resting, or feeding by undoing the work of sympathetic division after a stressful situation, and is also responsible for decreasing respiration and heart rate and increasing your body’s digestion.

“When we are physically or mentally tired or feeling stressed out, activity in the parasympathetic (rest-and-digest) branch of our nervous system is diminished, while the sympathetic (fight-or-flight) branch of our nervous system is activated. That stress response leaves us feeling distracted, overwhelmed, making it difficult to sleep.”

To put it simply, the Parasympathetic Nervous System is our body’s recovery system, which basically puts us in a more relaxed and safer mind state, which is exactly what helps our body to decrease the heart rate and reduce stress levels, and that’s exactly what the Apollo is designed to help your body to do, meaning to quickly activate our body to go into a Parasympathetic State.

With that said, the primary health benefit that the Apollo Neuro claims to bring you is to improve your HRV (Heart Rate Variability).

As mentioned earlier, while a higher HRV tends to mean that your body is adapting to deal with stress better, thus allowing you body to be more capable of healing and recovering, a lower HRV usually means that you’re getting sick (or you’re already sick) or that you’re under a lot of stress and you (and your body) are not being able to deal with it to well.

As such, this health and wellness wearable device can help users to improves their resilience to stress through novel touch therapy, by simply using it together with its Smartphone Companion App.

THE SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – The Apollo Neuro App

As said before, the Apollo Neuro is supposed to be used together with its Smartphone Companion App (called the Apollo Neuro App), which is available to download for free for both iOS and Android devices.

Within the App, users can select their goal-based mode, which is basically what allows them to trigger the device to help them feel exactly how they want. That said, you can choose between several different goal-based modes, such as Sleep and Renew, Clear and Focused, Social and Open, and many, many more.

For example, the Social and Open Mode is designed to help you stay nice and calm when under different social settings (job interviews, work meetings, etc.).

After selecting your goal-based mode, your Apollo device will start to deliver gentle vibrations of different intensities (the intensity level of the device’s created vibrations will basically depend on which mode you selected), which will basically help to activate your body’s parasympathetic nervous response in order to help your body to restore balance to its nervous system by signaling safety to your brain through our sense of touch.

For those interested in knowing more about it, the Apollo Neuro uses haptics (meaning technology that stimulates the senses of touch and motion) by Lofelt in order to be able to deliver smooth and gentle vibrations against your skin.

HOW TO USE?

When using the Apollo for helping your body to better deal with stress as well as to lower your stress levels, the company greatly recommends that users wear the device for at least 2 hours a day, for a total of 30 days, just so you can at least feel a difference. In other words, that would translate to around 3,600 minutes of use, which you can actually track via the App.

However, for those feeling adventurous enough, you can definitely use, it you so choose to.

It’s also worth to point out that since every person a little different from others, and since everyone has their body dealing with stress in different ways, it’s also recommended that you explore the App’s different modes so that you can better understand which vibration modes work best for you.

Lastly, it’s important to note that with a health and wellness wearable device such as the Apollo Neuro, consistency is what will help you see results in the long run. That said, the more consistently you use your Apollo device, the better your results will be.

In sum, when used consistently, the device will not only help you to retrain your nervous system so that you can ultimately manage your stress more effectively on your own, but over time, you’ll also be able to notice that you’ll start to sleep better, as well as have more energy throughout your days, feel more balanced, and have an increase on your focus levels.

While some users might notice their Apollo’s health benefits reasonably soon after starting to wear the device consistently with one perfered mode, it can take up to 30 days of regular use for others to actually feel noticeable changes in how they feel.

Lastly, for those interested, know that you can also pair the Apollo device with other health wearables in order to track your biometrics, for which case, you’ll quickly notice that your resting heart rate (RHR), heart rate variability (HRV), sleep latency (the time it takes to fall asleep), and overall sleep quality will reliably improve with a consistent use of the Apollo Neuro.

With that said, remember that the Apollo doesn’t track your biometrics, it only improves them actively with its stress relief technology.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX?

Inside each package, users will find: their Apollo Neuro Stress Relief Wearable Device, a Medium Wrist Band and a Large Ankle Band included, and the unit’s Micro-USB Charging Cord.
