Over the past few years people have been obsessed with the magical powers of sleep. It makes sense too. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, you’re likely to have a bad mood and low energy. While 8 hours of sleep is recommended, those who get 8 hours of sleep aren’t getting enough deep sleep. And deep sleep is very important to your health as well.

Luckily, there are an abundance of wearables on the market designed to provide us with a better night’s sleep. I have gathered here 5 such wearables that will not only give you a good night’s sleep but also track your baby’s sleep.

Developed Mountain View, Ca-based Beddr, SleepTuner integrates a compact sleep sensor with an iOS mobile app to provide personalized insights into your sleep quality and actionable recommendations on how to improve it. The device is worn on the forehead, and it tracks Oxygen level (SpO2), Stopped breathing events, Sleep position, Heart rate, and Sleep duration. SleepTuner is the smallest wearable that can reveal how your breathing and position impact your sleep quality.

  1. Go2Sleep

It increases comfort while maintaining almost the same detecting accuracy of a pulse oximeter, but with a lot more key information. When worn around the finger like a ring, the device monitors your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation levels, perfusion index, and the amount of movement during sleep, all just by monitoring the blood flow via the capillaries in your finger.

Philips’ new SmartSleep is the world’s first and only clinically-proven wearable solution for consumers to improve deep sleep quality for people who do not get enough sleep due to lifestyle, according to the company.

Once you slip on the headset, 2 small built-in sensors connect to your forehead and behind your ears to monitor brain activity and using advanced algorithms accurately identifies your different sleep stages during the night.
