You may know how much time you spend in bed, but are you truly well rested? Juvo will help you find out.
Sleep: We all want it, we all need it, yet we can never seem to get enough. This is a problem that one Singapore startup has set out to solve with an accurate and unobtrusive monitor that can help optimize your slumber. Whereas most wearable devices promise to quantify your sleep, they don’t necessarily manage and improve your nighttime habits. Meet Juvo.
The system is comprised of a sensor mat that slips under your mattress, a sleek bedside device and an accompanying app, which together are capable of seamlessly tracking your vitals and Z’s in real-time. Simply stated, Juvo can make an ordinary bed smart.
How it works is fairly straightforward. You first put the fiber-optic pad under your mattress, which connects over Wi-Fi to small square gadget that sits on your nightstand. From there, Juvo will keep tabs your heart rate, breathing patterns and movement to determine if you’re awake or not, and what stage of sleep you’re in.
But that’s not all. Juvo sets itself apart from other wearable products on the market today because it doesn’t just analyze what goes on as you snooze, it integrates with popular smart home platforms, such as Philips Hue, LIFX, Nest and WeMo, to enhance your surrounding environment. You may know how much time you spend in bed, but are you truly well rested? Thanks to the device’s SleepCoach, you’ll be able to find out.
The app determines the amount of restorative REM and deep sleep you’re truly getting so you can stay at the top of your game (even on those dreaded Mondays) and then dishes out advice to better your habits. These recommendations are tailored to each person and include everything from the optimal temperature to exactly how much sleep you need to be getting based on your personal sleep patterns. As if that wasn’t enough, Juvo even includes a built-in white noise generator to block out background sounds and a smart alarm for the perfect start to the day.
