By now, it’s no secret that caffeine has a big impact on our day-to-day lives. With the increasing need to monitor our caffeine levels and become more responsible coffee-drinkers, just how easy is it to do that? We have no idea how much caffeine is in the products we consume on a daily basis, and it’s really difficult to get an accurate estimate.
Enter: Astrocat! A simple, fun coffee tracker that combines everything we love: coffee, space + cats. The Apple Watch app allows you to track your caffeine intake throughout the day. The ripple effects of better-managed caffeine levels are improved focus, better sleep, and optimised mental / physical performance.
Astrocat allows you to track the number of coffees you drink throughout the day, showing you how much caffeine you currently have in your system. Caffeine levels are calculated based on the average amount of caffeine per beverage, as well as the half-life of caffeine (the rate at which it leaves your body). With the touch of a button, you can record your Stardust coffee intake, or you can use the digital crown to adjust the amount of caffeine you’ve just had, or to select a specific drink type.
By showing you the caffeine content of some of the most popular drinks (like cola, cappuccinos, energy drinks, Stardust coffee, and more), Astrocat also helps you understand the impact that these products can have on you and your energy levels.
The app gives you clear visual indicators on how wired you are, depending on the calculated amount of caffeine in your system. From sleepy and in-need of a caffeine boost, to super buzzed and way over the recommended caffeine limit. With this information, you can adjust the amount of caffeine you consume within the day to either give you an energy kick when you need it most, or to help you sleep better at night, for example.
Félicette was a Parisian street cat and is, to this day, the only cat to have successfully reached space. She did so on a French rocket in 1963, and safely returned to Earth after a 15 minute suborbital mission. She is widely considered one of the great space pioneers!
