As you inch closer to a big test, an important interview, or even a tense talk with a friend, you might find your heart racing. Now, thanks to a handy little device, that racing pulse can help you keep your stress levels in check.

Lief is a smart patch that sticks discreetly to your rib cage and measures your breathing and heart rate.
