The 10 Best Gadgets For Sleep

The 10 Best Gadgets For Sleep

Although phones and laptops should be limited in the bedroom, not all technology should be avoided. Some tech can actually help you sleep. In fact, sleep devices from smart mattresses to white noise machines are becoming increasingly popular in the market. As our society struggles to get enough sleep year after year, technology seems to be the only answer. It has improved almost every aspect of our lives, so why not leverage it to help us get a good night's sleep. 

With so many gadgets available today, we've selected our 10 favorite that actually work to improve sleep quality. 

1. Eight Smart Mattress 

Our sensor-based mattress is engineered to help you sleep better and wake up refreshed. It monitors your sleep patterns through the night and gives you actionable suggestions on what you can do to improve the quality of your sleep. It also features dual-zone bed warming and supreme comfort to help you relax at night. Plus, use the smart alarm to wake you up in your lightest stage of sleep. 

2. Awair

Getting a good night's sleep requires a good sleep environment. This means eliminating distractions such as noise and light, but also taking into account air quality. Awair is a smart device that tracks toxins and chemicals in your air to help you stay healthy and breathe easy. It also gives you a sleep report every morning that analyzes your bedroom and tells you how your air affects your quality of sleep. Indoor air pollution can negatively impact sleep quality, which is why you need to clean up your air to sleep well. 

3. Philips Hue White & Color Starter Kit

Smart lights are a great investment because your sleep cycle is dictated by light. With these Philips Hue lights, you can create a setting that mimics the sunset and gradually dims down as you drift off to sleep. You can also switch your lights to a relaxing orange color at night to signal your brain that it's time to wind down. In the morning, you can trigger a wake up light which will naturally wake you up with lights. 

4. Calm 

Calm is an app focused on mindfulness and meditation, both of which will help you sleep better. Doing a little bit of guided meditation at night can calm anxiety and promote deep sleep. It's especially great for people who often have trouble falling asleep. 

5. Dodow 

This new digital sleep lamp was developed by insomniacs to help you drift off fast. It uses a hypnotizing blue light to coordinate and slow down your breaths to stimulate your body's natural resting state. 

6.  Smart Nora

Snoring can interrupt sleep and cause a lot of problems when sharing a bed. Smart Nora is a revolutionary product that detects snoring throughout the night. You insert into your pillow and it will gently adjust your pillow when you start snoring. This will stimulate the throat muscles, allowing for natural breathing to resume. It'll help the snorer and the partner sleep soundly during the night. 

7. Nest Thermostat 

One of the major causes of toss and turns at night is improper bedroom temperature. The ideal temperature for optimal sleep is 60-67 degrees Fahrenheit. Keeping the room too hot or too cold can disrupt sleep. A smart thermostat like Nest will help you regulate your bedroom so it stays at the perfect sleep-inducing temperature. 

8. Remee

If you're looking for a sleep mask that enhances REM sleep, Remee will do just that. During REM sleep, blood flow decreases to the brain and redirects itself towards the muscles, allowing the body and mind to properly rest and recover. This eye cover uses customizable light signals to increase dream recall. 

9. Somnox

Although we haven't tried this, we're very intrigued by the sleep robot that claims it'll help you sleep. This pillow-like device is designed to simulate breathing and play soothing music to help you fall asleep. 

10. Urpower Essential Oil Diffuser 

Aromatherapy shouldn't be overlooked when trying to sleep better. Placing an essential oil diffuser in your bedroom is a great solution for sinus congestion, insomnia, or stress. We like the lavender scent because it relaxes the body and calms the mind. Using it 30 minutes before bed may help you drift off faster.
