Imagine a wristband that could help you get the most out of your sleep, that could ensure you get enough rest to always feel refreshed. You don’t have to imagine anymore; the innovative WakeMate Wristband does exactly that.

The WakeMate Wristband uses something called actigraphy to analyze the ‘semi-awake arousal points’ in your REM cycle and a motion sensor to measure your body’s activity during sleep. Doing so ensures that it will wake you when you’ve had enough rest to feel refreshed. According to OhGizmo!, rather than setting a typical alarm, you just give the WakeMate Wristband a 20-minute window in which you’d like to wake and it will sound an alarm at the optimal time within that window.
