10 Sleep gadgets to improve your rest with technology

By a show of hands - how many of you get eight hours of sleep at night? No one? Didn’t think so. Achieving the optimal amount of sleep seems like a futile game we play every night. While some blame technology, the right sleep gadgets can actually help you fall asleep (and stay asleep).

10 Sleep gadgets to improve your rest with technology
  • Do we really need 8 hours of sleep per night? It depends on your age, activity, and health. But, eight is a good target.
  • What are some non-invasive options for reducing stress at bedtime? Check out weighted blankets – just make sure to grab one designed for your body type.
  • Where can I find more sleep accessories? We’ve got an entire category dedicated to bedtime gear, gadgets, and devices.

You probably already know that we’re supposed to get eight hours of sleep a night. You also probably already know that eight hours is laughable and unattainable for most of us. Whether it’s late night work (or play), the stress of the day keeping your brain running, or a lack of routine, it’s really difficult to hit those eight hours.

Technology is here to help. From wearables to tracking systems, the more you know about your sleep the better it will be. Check out these 10 sleep gadgets that will have you nodding off like a champ.

Eight Sleep Pod High Tech Bed

It’s not a bed – it’s a Pod. This high tech sleeping system combines dynamic temperature regulation, smart home integrations, biometric tracking, and sleep coaching for better rest and recuperation. It uses AI to learn from your sleeping habits and adjust the temperature accordingly and automatically. The Sleep Pod helps you fall asleep faster and spend more time in deep sleep.

Withings Sleep Tracking Pad

Tracking deep, light, and REM sleep cycles, this sleep tracking pad also monitors your heart rate as well as your snoring. Pairing with a dedicated app, the device also coaches you to help improve your sleep. If that wasn’t enough, it also integrates with your smart home devices so you can sync your smart lights, thermostat, and more just by climbing in and out of bed.

Philips SmartSleep Deep Sleep Headband

Comfortably worn around the head, the SmartSleep Headband pairs with an app and is clinically proven to improve your sleep quality. Specially designed for those who sleep fewer than seven hours a day, the 30 adhesive sensors work together to off a drug-free sleep alternative. You’ll wake up feeling your absolute best morning after morning.

Sleepie Sleep Aid Device

Tapping into your senses, Sleepie employs dual oil diffusers, blue light technology, and high and low-frequency sounds to help you get to sleep. It pairs with an app so you can personalize the device to suit all your sleeping and waking needs. When it’s time to get up, it emits blue light to help your mind and body wake up.

SleepBank Sleep Frequency Technology Device

Decreasing the influence of high-frequency radio waves, SleepBank produces a 2×2-meter natural frequency magnetic field. In layman’s terms: it helps reduce the audio clutter around you so both your body and mind can relax. Designed for long-term use, you’ll see positive results in as little as one week.

nodpod Weighted Sleep Mask

Blocking out all the light around you, this sleep mask is actually outfitted weights which apply gentle yet deep pressure. Promoting deep and restful sleep, the nodpod instantly creates a calming effect. Along with better sleep, you’ll also get relief from eye strain, headaches, anxiety, and stress.

11 Sleep gadgets to improve your rest with technology

Casper Glow Smart Sleeping Light

Using the power of light for better sleep, the Glow Light produces a soft and warm light to help signal to your body when it’s time to wind down for the day. As soon as you climb into bed, it begins to dim so you can slowly and peacefully drift off into a superbly deep sleep. It does the opposite when it’s time to wake up, energizing you for the day.

Bose In-Ear Noise-Masking Sleepbuds

Rather than disturb your partner with a noise machine, the Bose Sleepbuds offer a more personal approach. The audio masters are now perfecting sleep with these comfortable earbuds. You have your choice of relaxing audio sounds and you can use the app to set smart alarms. With a two-night battery life, they’re also perfectly portable for nights away from home.

Kokoon EEG Sleep Headphones

Unlike regular headphones, the Kookoon Headphones are designed to be slept in. But, they do more than just play audio. They have a built-in EEG which tracks your sleep patterns and changes the audio accordingly. As you fall asleep, the audio drifts off. When you start to wake, it picks back up.

GO2SLEEP Home Sleep Test Device

GO2SLEEP is an AI-powered device monitors your sleep and evaluates Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Tracks a set of indicators as you sleep, keeping you as informed as possible. Compact and portable, it fits your finger like a ring. You can easily review the results in the app and even make changes to your sleep to help you get the most rest.
