Technology is getting clever at understanding how we sleep. There’s now a growing range of sleep devices and sleep apps which can help us get to sleep and track our bodies’ behaviours and patterns whilst sleeping. Meditation apps and relaxation apps can promote better, deeper sleep and help reduce anxiety, whilst sleep-trackers and sensors can provide useful data to help understand our sleep cycles.
Sleep gadgets for children, toddlers and babies include bedside music devices, clocks and lights helping them learn when to sleep and when to wake. For adults, a wide selection of nightlights and clocks are now using natural light and sound to sync with our circadian rhythms – the natural biological patterns that regulate our body clocks – to wake us gently. We’ve looked at the best gadgets & sleep apps which track your sleep patterns, soothe, relax & help meditation and chosen some of our favourites below.
