With nearly a third of the UK population experiencing sleep difficulties, experts have turned their attention to the development of sleep technology in an attempt to prevent and alleviate the physical and mental issues caused as a result of poor rest.

 

Anyone who has spent a few nights in a row tossing and turning will agree that sleep deprivation can leave you feeling groggy and cranky, but did you know that there is a wide range of other side effects when it comes to not getting enough shut-eye? From weakened immune system to high blood pressure and increased risk of diabetes and heart disease, a lack of sleep is not to be taken lightly.

 

This is why sleep tech is such a revolutionary step forward. After all, almost everything is better after a good night’s sleep!

 

So, what are the latest sleep tech gadgets and how can they help you?

 

Smart Pillows

Smart pillows are the next level in sleep technology. Ideal for snorers, these incredible inventions not only help you to stop snoring, but they also play soothing music or meditation tracks, analyse your sleep and intelligently wake you up. The Zeeq Smart Pillow can be controlled via Bluetooth from your smart device to play your favourite tracks and provide you with an in-depth sleep analysis. Forget about spending ages trying to drift off or waking feeling groggy, the Zeeq Smart Pillow monitors your sleep cycle during the night to intelligently wake you at just the right moment. And it is also fully compatible with Amazon Echo! What more could you want from a pillow?!

 

Sleep Monitors

For those who prefer non-wearable gadgets, the REM-Fit Sleep Monitor is an incredibly thin strap that lays across your bed. As you sleep, it monitors your heart rate, respiratory rate, and motion using highly accurate sensors to give you a comprehensive look at the quality of your sleep.

 

Sleep Trackers

The REM-Fit Active 100 sleep and activity wrist tracker uses proprietary algorithms to analyse your day and night time movements to provide you with a comprehensive look at your day-to-day activity. Using SleepPoints and ActivePoints, the sleep tracker sends data to an app on your phone to calculate an overall 360 LifeScore, based on the quality of your sleep and intensity of your activity. Perfect for anyone who wants to track their steps, distance and calories burned as well as the quality of their sleep.
