Your diet, exercise routine and sleep habits are the 3 pillars essential to maintain a healthy life. There is an overflow of knowledge out there when it comes to nutrition, diet, exercise and fitness, yet we hardly bat an eyelid when it comes to sleep. Sleep is just something we do. We go to bed at night and wake up in the morning. It’s so seemingly simple, yet there’s a lot to it that we don’t consider. Bad sleeping habits don’t only affect us in the short term, they have a detrimental effect on our long-term health and longevity.
Australian company A.H. Beard is passionate about improving people’s lives through better sleep. It’s that passion that has made them global leaders in sleep innovation, proven once again with their latest sleep technology products released this week. Here’s a quick rundown of the A.H. Beard sleep technology range and how they can benefit your overall well-being.
RestOn Sleep Tracker
This non-wearable strap can easily be placed under your sheet at about hearts height, designed to stay in place, so it won’t shift or fall off during sleep. The RestOn will monitor your sleep cycle, heart-rate, respiratory rate and body movements to a 96% accuracy level. This boasts the most accurate monitoring aside from visiting an actual sleep physician. The RestOn then analyses the data and calculates a sleep score that can be viewed on your smartphone. This gives insight into how well (or unwell) you’ve slept, whilst giving tips and advice on how to improve your sleep.
Nox Smart Sleep Light
The Nox Smart Sleep Light aims to help users fall asleep effortlessly with soothing lights and sounds, and at the end of your slumber it will wake you up naturally with its innovative smart alarm feature. The device has the ability to produce over 16 million different light colours, varied with the purpose of increasing or decreasing the users’ melatonin (the body’s sleep hormone) levels.
For example, when it’s bedtime time, the Nox Smart Sleep Light automatically produces a red light in order to increase melatonin levels. When it’s time to wake up, the light replicates the changing colours of the sunrise, from soft yellow to bright white. Simultaneously, it monitors the light, noise, humidity and temperature of the room throughout the night, with data available for viewing on the connected app. Knowing this information allows the user to identify possible disturbances and have better control over the quality of their sleep.
Sleep Dot Mini Sleep Tracker
The Sleep Dot Mini is A.H. Beard’s small, unobtrusive, entry-level sleep tracker that attaches to the corner of a pillow to monitor, track and analyse sleep quality. The output – guidance and advice on how you can achieve better sleep results. Like the other A.H. Beard products, this device easily connects to the Sleep Tracker App and both the Sleep Dot Mini and RestOn Tracker can be connected to the Nox Smart Sleep light for a more comprehensive result.
A good night’s rest is an important part of personal wellbeing and with A.H. Beard’s new ground-breaking sleep technology, you can now sleep your way to a healthier and happier life.
