Air Purifiers, Smart Lights And A Wrist Vibrator—The Useful And Unusual Tech That Helps You Sleep

One of the hardest things about being in your 30’s is that you need to take care of yourself in order to work as a person. This means that a good night’s sleep is important, because a two a liter pack of energy drinks does not do the job. To make great progress, you must first ask yourself the right questions – like why am I tired at first, and how do I sleep better? What I quickly learned over the last few weeks is that there are endless numbers of gadgets out there that offer magical solutions to greatly enhance your sleep. But the fact is that your habits and activities before bed play a very important role. The technology – and any other help you use – is commendable. What I quickly learned over the last few weeks is that there is an endless number of gadgets out there that offer magical solutions to greatly enhance your sleep. But the fact is that your habits and activities before bed play a very important role. The technology – and any other help you use – is commendable. I recommend that you start your relaxing journey by studying science after bedtime. Specifically, I found Nick Little hales book Sleep helpful in eliminating sleep disorders, while providing practical advice. The Little hales also mentored top athletes in football teams such as Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City and many other players in various sports. So you have a right. If you have signed up for Masterclass – and I recommend you get it – Matthew Walker’s science course is also excellent. There is so much in the book about exercise, diet, mattresses and more. But, with these goals in mind, what tech can help your sleep? Your first stop is to know how you sleep, and you will need a tool to measure that.

Foundations
Three weeks ago I had a new Google Noli Hub 2 sitting next to my bed constantly checking for sneezing, coughing and nightmares as a stubborn, helicopter parent. The good thing about the Nest Hub 2 is that it doesn’t have to be worn on your body to work, it uses radar technology – with its Solo radar chip, microphone and sensors near temperature – to measure your sleep. This then spits out data about how much you cough, sniffed and threw at night which can be viewed on the device or with the Google Fit app. I found that the interference details come with my Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and Skater Hybrid HR, so it’s very accurate. There is also a good feature that can distinguish between being in bed (Nest Hub we call “sleep time”) and in fact however what is missing is data for deep, deep light and REM sleep. Smart watches can record this by using heart rate monitors. If you want to relax, this is important. A Google device cannot – and may not provide you with that information. Therefore, the data is not included. With that extra data I used Skater’s new Hybrid HR clock, which proved to be accurate and reliable. For those who read my stories, they will know that I had some problems with the sleep details posted by the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3. It contradicts the Fit bit details I checked earlier and now with the Skater reading.

This problem is caused by how little I sleep. Samsung’s wear will last 20 minutes of deep sleep, Skater and Fit bit devices recording for three hours. I can’t explain the contradiction, but waking up and feeling good during the test tells me that the Skater and Fit bit clocks are more accurate. Skater also has a useful feature in addition to the Samsung and Nest Hub 2 clock: einkorn screen. That means no circadian rhythm removes blue light that disturbs your kip when you check your watch at night, or wake you up hard in the morning. The einkorn display also means it works better on batteries than an LED or OLD watch and will last for two weeks, so you don’t miss out on sleep data.

Releasing the senses
The Nest Hub 2 has LED, not OLD, which means that even in sleep mode the bright screen emits some disturbing light. To combat this, I use a sleeping mask. Little hales advised sleeping in a very dark room. That’s not possible for me because of the excessive street lighting, so this Station Sleep Eye Mask is very effective. It is a simple, inexpensive solution to this article but the fact is that a comfortable sleeping mask has greatly improved the kip. It has a large Velcro strap that connects to the back of your head, there is a small soft strap that can cut into your ears. And it’s beautiful, soft, breathable. Sounds canceling out the sounds of the bedroom mask are simple, but it all helps. Earplugs are a way for those who are sensitive to sudden noises, but I have found that they do not rest or fall easily at night. Instead, white noise is a way to stop other distractions. The Nest Hub 2 can do this, with your phone, but the more expensive air purification solution has the added bonus of air purification.
