The Bellabeat LEAF, on show earlier this year at CES, has now gone on sale - offering a range of lifestyle tracking options from a slick looking device.

The LEAF, designed with women in mind, is the latest piece of smart jewellery to launch into an ever-growing marketplace. However, it does have a couple of unique features up its sleeve.

Firstly, stress levels are monitored by recording the wearer's breathing patterns. When you don the LEAF for the first time, you input how stressed you're feeling into the app – and an algorithm keeps track of your vitals going forward.

The device can also help women track their menstrual cycles and advise them during periods of ovulation. Step and sleep monitoring is also on offer.

The Bellabeat LEAF can be worn as a necklace, using the supplied sliver chain, or as a brooch. It can also be paired with a range of accessories such as leather and vegan fiber straps.

The LEAF boasts a six month battery life and and comes in a biodegradable packaging made of sugar cane fiber, bamboo, and reed pulp. It's $119 for the standard device or $250 for a limited edition one - made from a dark marshwood with gold leaf.
