After a long and stressful day, nothing beats rolling yourself up in a blanket burrito and drifting off to sleep. But if you find yourself staring at the ceiling, thinking about all you need to do the next day instead of flying on unicorn-back through dreamland, you’re not alone.
According to a survey conducted by Statista in 2017, 19 percent of Americans reported having difficulty unwinding at night. This means they are losing out on precious hours of slumber. While honing your sleep habits over the course of a few weeks can help, you can also hack your way to sleep with a new wearable device from Dreem.
Dreem believes that sleeping well is not a luxury; it’s an absolute necessity. That’s why they’re on a mission to conquer sleep. Unlike most sleep trackers which merely guess about your sleep habits using movement and heart-rate cues, the Dreem headband actually scans your brainwaves and delivers feedback to help you fall asleep faster and get more restful sleep. The wearable has built-in EEG sensors to measure your brain activity, accelerometers to measure your tossing and turning, and pulse oximeters to measure your heart rate and oxygen intake.
“Definitely a keeper. The Dreem band delivered beyond my expectations. For starters, it made very observable improvements to my sleep quality right when I needed it the most.”
- Thomas T.
“After 50 days it really seems to be working well. It’s nice to have feedback on what changes or supplements have an impact your sleep. Also seems the deep sleep simulations are getting more effective over time.”
- Greg E.
And for those of you who have seen Inception a few too many times (like us), fear not! The sleep headband is offline when you are snoozing — no wifi or bluetooth — so your dreams are safe from tampering!
If you’re ready to hack your sleep cycle, you can order the headband from Dreem’s website today for $499.
