High quality, restorative sleep every night is difficult to achieve for most people who are in the thick of modern-day stress living. The world is witness to sleep deprived health disorders and the number of cases is increasing at an alarming pace every day.
Insomnia and lack of good sleep is mostly seen in people who work 9 to 5 jobs in the corporate sector and in big city life where pollution, stress, and fast living rates are extremely high.
The Withings Aura is an advanced Sleep gadget that monitors, and promotes high quality sleep every night.
The Withings Aura should be placed on your bedside where it will silently monitor and assist you in achieving good sleep.
It has a sensor that tracks body movements, breathing cycles, and heart rate. The sensor also keeps track of environmental conditions such as noise, light, and temperature.
The device emits white noise and a narrow red light spectrum which are both sleep inducing and facilitate the generation of melatonin in the human body.
The base of the bedside unit consists of a speaker and the main dome has an LED bulb. The surface is touch sensitive that responds to simple hand movements.
The brightness of the lamp can be adjusted using the phone App that the Aura syncs with.
Note that the Aura is a heavy bedside device and you should be careful while handling it. It has a DC power socket and 3 USB sockets for charging your phone and other devices.
Before going to sleep, you need to put the device into sleep mode and swipe right to control light and sound intensity.
The actual sleep sensor is a thin sheet like material that is 27.6 inches long and 8.3 inches wide. You need to place this sensor under your mattress and the data perceived by it will be sent to the bedside device.
The waking up alarm system of the Aura is not like conventional alarm clocks where blaring sirens are sounded in your ears and you’re rudely woken up from your beautiful dreams.
Withings Aura Smart Sleep System Review:
- Advanced Sleep Monitoring and Sleep assistance device.
- Stylish bedside lamp cum alarm.
- Considers several sleep metrics to give you detailed sleep data.
- Very helpful for people with disturbed sleep or insomnia.
- Excellent, non-jarring alarm system.
- Expensive device
- Non-customisable alarm music.
- Tracks sleep of only one user at a time.
- The ‘always on’ sleep tracking feature is not wholly accurate.
With this device, you will get a beautiful bedside lamp, advanced sleep tracking functionality and a great alarm clock that you will fall in love with rather than hate. But the price is still too high for a sleep tracker.
This is an excellent product for people with insomnia and lack of good quality sleep per night if you couple it with healthy diet and lifestyle practises. While it’s not a one-stop solution for better sleep every night, it is definitely a handy gadget that will help you sleep deeply.
