How does Sleep Tracker Pro Elite Sleep Monitor work?
SLEEPTRACKER continuously monitors signals from your body that indicate whether you are asleep or awake. Because you wear SLEEPTRACKER® on your wrist like a watch, its internal sensors can detect even the most subtle physical signals from your body. SLEEPTRACKER® finds your best waking moments, so that waking up has never been easier.
When you sleep, your body goes through a series of sleep cycles. The average adult experiences 4-5 full sleep cycles over an 8-hour period. Each cycle lasts about 90-110 minutes and comprises five different stages, as illustrated by this chart.
Reviews of the Sleep Tracker Pro Elite Sleep Monitor:
It keeps track of movement throughout the night to monitor the sleep cycle.
Bottom line: When I let the watch figure out when to wake me up I waking up a lot easier, more quickly, and feel more rested.
With this watch you set the time you want to get up and a time window before then during which it should look for an “almost awake” point when it sounds the alarm. (Actually, you get a choice of an audible alarm, a vibrating alarm, or both). Also important is the watch is light and comfortable. I don’t feel it on my wrist and it doesn’t bother me while I’m sleeping.
With just that, the Sleeptracker is a great step forward in alarm clock technology but it doesn’t address the “tracker” part. In addition to providing an effective way to wake up it also measures how well you’ve slept. That’s done by recording the time between each “almost awake” point and also averaging them for the entire night. More time spent in “deeper sleep” usually means better sleep. You can review this information in the morning using the watch display.
But, it doesn’t stop there. There’s also a program you can load on your PC and a cable for transferring the daily sleep data into a database. (The software installs and runs without any problems on my 64-bit Win 7 system.) With the program you can review sleep data over time and even attach notes to each night’s sleep regarding your pre-sleep activities to investigate correlations between them and sleep quality. For example, you can see if having those three drinks and/or the Monte Cristo sandwich right before bed in any way affected your sleeping patterns. It’s kind of like getting one of those expensive sleep studies without the inconvenience or expense. If you like, you can even export the data to Excel for additional analysis.
bought this watch so that I could sleep within my sleep cycles, which on average is 90 minutes. 90 minutes contains all of the stages of sleep and at the end of a cycle you are sleeping at your lightest. If you can wake up at that time you will feel more rested. If you wake up at other points of the sleep cycle you will feel tired and sleepy all day long, even if you sleep for an extended period. What this means is that it is best to sleep in cycles that are multiples of 90 minutes – 1 1/2, 3, 4 1/2, 6, 7 1/2 hours. Using this watch I have been able to successfully sleep for less time and still feel rested. I always thought I needed 7 – 8 hours of sleep. Now I am rested with 6 hours nightly. I have even tried to sleep 4 1/2 hours with a power nap in the afternoon. That seems to work, but it is difficult to do.
Setting the watch is easy. You set the alarm and the time when you are going to bed. A window of time can be set in which the watch will wake you if it detects movement before the alarm goes off. The default is 20 minutes. It keeps track of movement throughout the night to monitor the sleep cycle. The alarm can be set to vibrate, buzz or both. To keep track of your sleep you can download software from the manufacturer’s website. The watch comes with a USB connector through which data is downloaded to your PC. The software allows you to input the quality of sleep and has a place for notes so that you can keep track of details.

Review the Sleep Data Your Zeo Personal Sleep Manager Displays Right at Your Bedside
The Zeo Bedside Display puts last night’s sleep data at your fingertips and will store up to two weeks of data for easy viewing. When you wake up, it gives you a personal sleep score – your ZQ – and shows a graph of your Light, Deep and REM sleep over the course of the night. The bedside display will also present you with information about last night’s sleep and how it compares to previous nights. The optional SmartWake alarm feature will look for a “natural awakening point” based on your sleep patterns to decrease the grogginess associated with waking from Deep sleep. When SmartWake is selected, Zeo will find a time to wake you within a half-hour of your set time, never later. The result should be a slightly easier way to wake up
