The device is equipped with sensors and a suite of apps to promote mindfulness and physical activity.

Currently on Kickstarter, the Lumafit sensor fits around the ear and is designed to track physical fitness as well as mental fitness.

Though wristband trackers and smartwatches generally rule the world of fitness trackers at the present, “hearables” or ear-worn trackers are also gaining ground in the fitness wearables industry.

Adding itself to the mix of “hearables,” Lumafit is a new fitness tracker built with sensors and a suite of apps for fitness and relaxation. It tracks motion at the head rather than the wrist. The ultra light, compact device is worn behind the ear and includes a clip that is attached to the earlobe. It can track and rate cardio workouts and exercises like sit-ups, lunges, pushups, crunches, squats, and more. It can also monitor the wearer's heart rate and measure calorie burn, pace and form. According to the developers, Lumafit can track heart rate as accurately as a strap worn around the chest.
