This device will calculate the time it takes you to fall asleep and the amount of sleep you get until you wake up, by detecting the movement of your bedding, such as when you turn over in your sleep; all you need to do is set the time at which you wish to wake up and place the device beside your pillow. Features a "clear-head alarm" function that senses from your body movements the point at which you are sleeping more lightly and wakes you up at a time when it is easy for you to wake up. As it will be placed beside your pillow, it has been designed with a soft, translucent appearance to blend in naturally with your bedding without causing the user any stress about the measurement process. The device is started using the large button in the center and as well as featuring a snooze function like an ordinary alarm clock, it also offers the ability to stop the calculations, making measurement simple. Synchronizing the HSL-001 with a sleep rhythm recording app for smartphones enables users to create graphs showing their day-to-day sleeping patterns and adjust their sleep cycles, thereby supporting their health management.
