HAVE YOU EVER noticed that it’s harder to wake up some mornings than others – even when you’ve gotten the same amount of sleep the night before? Why is that?
It could be because your alarm clock wakes you up at the same time each day, instead of during the best time in your sleep cycle for waking up.
New smart alarm clocks can improve your mornings by waking you up during a light sleep stage, the best time for starting your day. A sleep cycle alarm clock can mean the difference between having a good morning or feeling like you got up on the wrong side of the bed.
Using your sleep cycles to your advantage
While sleeping, you go through different stages of sleep within a sleep cycle: light sleep, deep sleep and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, which is your dream state. A full sleep cycle lasts about 90 minutes, and is repeated several times throughout the night.
If you are awakened during a stage of deep sleep, you’ll fell groggy and disorientated so it’s much harder for you to wake up. But if you wake up during a light sleep phase, it’s much easier to wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
That’s where SmartWake™ by Verlo comes in.
The smartest way to wake up
SmartWake™ by Verlo is the world’s smartest alarm clock. This newly launched product monitors your personal sleep cycles during the night, and then gently wakes you up during your lightest sleep phase so it’s much easier to get out of bed.
How SmartWake works
Instead of having to wear something, like a Fitbit on your wrist or strap, which can be uncomfortable or annoying when you’re sleeping, the SmartWake sensor (disc) is placed under your mattress, where you don’t see or feel it.
Using clinically proven sleep technology, the SmartWake sensor monitors your:
- Heart rate
The data is then communicated via Bluetooth to your synced smartphone, where the SmartWake App identifies your sleep cycles and calculates the best time to wake you within your selected alarm time. For instance, if you want to wake up by 6:30 a.m., you would set the alarm from 6:00 – 6:30am. When you reach a light sleep phase during this range of time, SmartWake gently wakes you up.
Wake up. Sleep better.
Feeling better in the morning also depends on whether you got a good night’s sleep beforehand.
Besides its smart cycle alarm clock function, SmartWake serves as a sleep tracker app, providing insight into your sleep patterns so you can improve and enhance your sleep habits.
It shows you things like how long it took for you to fall asleep, how long your sleep stages last, and how many times you got out of bed. It even alerts you to possible issues, such as sleep apnea, and offers sleeping tips based on your personal sleep scores.
If you’re tired of waking up tired, get SmartWake from Verlo...and start your day the smart way.
