Evaluation

Based on the long years' experience in research of sleep, the company is trying to solve the issue that Japanese people are not having an adequate level of sleep. This air conditioner provides comfortable sleep, which is gentle to the body, by sensing next to the pillow, where it is the closest to users. While auto setting is most commonly used function of air conditioners, this product focuses on a clear target, sleep. Also, a beginner-friendly app is available that lets users check their sleep pattern visually and control the air conditioner in response.
