Zzzz... Withings launches Aura active smart sleep technology

Withings wants to help people sleep better using a new high-tech system to alter sleeping environment

| Health Technology News | Posted: Jan 7, 2014 5:39 am

Electronics company Withings has launched a $299 gadget that uses customized light and sound programs that adapt to each sleeper, providing a more restful amount of sleep. Aura also has the ability to track heart rate, breathing and body movement, along with noise pollution, room temperature, and lighting. Both the custom sensor pad and beside unit send information wirelessly, which owners can check using a free mobile app.

"Sleep is such a vital part of a healthy balance that we challenged ourselves to create a product that could be used not only to analyze and monitor sleep, but also to positively impact the experience," said Cedric Hutchings, Withings co-founder, in a press statement.

 

Smart technologies will be a major draw at CES 2014, with Withings fighting for attention among a strong list of competitors. However, the niche market for those looking to improve daily life could benefit from looking at something like the Withings Aura.
