How Do You Sleep: 4 Gadgets That Will Radically Change Your Life for The Better?
Spend your night the right way to be as productive as possible during the day.
We once dedicated an entire tab to such an important pastime as sleep, collecting tips for improving the regime, ways to quickly fall asleep and wake up vigorous, interpreting dreams, a list of things to do before 9 in the morning to get the day off, and other useful materials. We hope you have read them carefully and are successfully applying them in practice, because today, on World Sleep Day, we want to talk not only about the number of hours you spend in a dream, but also about their quality.
This aspect is paid great attention to by somnologists – scientists studying sleep in various aspects. They speak at conferences (Google Mutthew Walker), publish scientific research, and write books. All of them (and other successful people we are used to targeting) have one thing in common: they use certain gadgets that track and analyze their sleep. In our selection – four of these devices, which turned out to be the most popular and frequently purchased last year.
The ring, invented by a Finnish IT developer, was created to show how sleep deprivation affects other areas of life. This is one of the reasons the device is designed to be worn around the clock. It measures activity levels during the day, and heart rate and body temperature at night. By connecting to the app in the morning, you can read a detailed analysis, which will show both extra glasses of wine and an overly intense training session the day before.
The smart device is available in two designs (Energy and Balance) and colors (silver, glossy or matte black), and its cost ranges from $ 299 to $ 999 for a model with diamonds. An important plus in the list of deciding factors is the ability to order first a set to determine the correct size (it is important that it is comfortable to sleep in the ring), and then the ring itself. By the way, in this case, the set, which usually costs $ 5, will cost you free.

The motto of this device sounds like “Achieve the highest results during the day by improving the quality of sleep.” You put on an accessory before bed, and then let it do its job: create a schedule, analyze sleep stages and gently wake up with vibration.
Three big pluses: long battery life of up to six days on a single charge, built-in Amazon Alexa and eight strap colors.
The cost of the gadget is $ 199.95.

This mat is ideal for those who do not want to put something on their fingers, wrists, waist, forehead and other parts of the body. The Nokia Sleep gadget sits under the mattress of your bed and operates on power to analyze your sleep. It tracks the phases of sleep, its duration and quality, monitors the pulse and recognizes snoring.
Based on this data, the system offers a personalized eight-day sleep improvement program developed by renowned sleep therapist Christopher Winter.
Another interesting feature of Nokia Sleep is the integration with the IFTTT service. This means that the device can control a “smart” home: turn on and off the lights and adjust the temperature when the user lies down or wakes up. Over time, the system adapts to you, creating ideal conditions for sleep and wakefulness.
The cost of the rug is $ 99.

Did you know that when you first go to bed, your brain activity is about 50 Hz, and when you fall asleep, it is 10 Hz? You don’t need to know this when you have the Sleep Shepherd Bluе smart bandage on your forehead, which deals with this “reduction”. It does this with binaural beats – an illusion of the brain: imaginary sounds of controlled music that the brain perceives, despite the fact that there are no sounds of this frequency in reality.
