It’s no longer a banker’s hour world. No matter the time of the day, somebody somewhere wants something from us. So, in an era of omnipresent communication and unpredictable demands, it’s all the more important to back off, regroup and wind down.

The Muse 2 is a personal meditation biofeedback sensor to aid in the practice of regular meditation. Worn around the head to make contact with pulse points on the temples, the Muse 2 works with a free app to coach and guide that mental downtime to lower stress, reduce blood pressure and just get away from it all for a while. It’s also a useful tool for sports preparation, assisting in the focus needed for golf or tennis.

For $345, the device arrives with a yearly subscription service offering regularly updated guided meditations from Muse experts designed to work with the sensors and app technology.
