Tips for Sleep Better

Can’t sleep? There’s an app for that. Or at least a gadget.

Not getting enough sleep can result in poor performance at work, bad moods and even a weakened immune system. Therefore, it’s important that you consistently get a good night’s rest — and these products, from customized alarms to smart sleep masks, promise to help.

Check out these 11 gadgets to help you get more shut-eye.

 

NORA

Say goodbye to nose strips and ear plugs, Toronto-based tech company NORA says it has a solution for snoring.

NORA aims to be a non-invasive, silent and portable tech gadget. You place one piece of it on a surface near your bed and the second piece (a padded insert) in your pillow. When the device detects any snoring, the mini pump in the pillow insert will inflate and deflate — gently moving the pillow, and as a result, stops snoring.

NOX SLEEP LIGHT

It may be time to disable your iPhone alarm clock. Here’s a bedside system that aims to help you naturally wake up.

By placing a giant band on top of your mattress, the Nox system measures sleep patterns, heart rate, breathing rate and how much you’re tossing and turning.

The data gathered is sent to an app connected to a bedside light that aspires to provide the perfect lighting and sounds to wake you up naturally. The light also apparently helps you get sound sleep by producing red wavelengths and soothing sounds that increase melatonin levels.
