Sleep Well, Live Better

Sleep Well, Live Better is a holistic approach to understanding, tracking, quantifying, and intelligently waking from sleep. The bedside unit has been designed to appear closer to a piece of furniture in the bedroom than a scientific sleep tracking device. Using a medical-grade radio sensor housed in a beautiful bedside unit the divide detects movement levels during sleep. From this we can determine how much light sleep (high movement) and deep sleep (low movement) the user has had. Taking this data the quality of sleep can be determined and this is sent to a smartphone app to provide contextual feedback and guidance to improve the users sleep. The app design communicates the information the user needs calmly and succinctly without confusing them with endless graphs or percentages. The app treats sleep tracking as an important part of leading a healthy life, as opposed to the gimmicky features of sleep tracking app's currently available. The app has been designed to be easily navigated and easy to look at late at night before bed.
