ELLE DECORATION TEST
Chief Sub Editor Clare Sartin rests her head on the ‘Zeeq Smart Pillow’ by REM-FIT
What does it do? Tracks the quality of your sleep, plays audio through its built-in speakers to help you drop off and wakes you with a gentle vibration. But its most enticing claim is to be able to stop you snoring.
How does it work? Once charged, you sync the pillow with an app on your phone to set up your sleep preferences. These include setting alarms, deciding if you want to fall asleep to music and, if so, what (it can connect to Spotify, Android Music and IOS Music), and choosing whether or not you want it to track and control your snoring. This works by monitoring sound and, when you hit a high decibel, lightly vibrating to encourage you to move without waking you. It’s like a partner poking you until you turn over, but less stressful for all involved! Do I need it in my bedroom? If you want to track your sleep and, like me, don’t enjoy wearing a fitness tracker to bed, then it’s an effective alternative. However, part of me is wary about placing my head on an electrical device every night – aren’t we being told to banish gadgets from the bedroom? Oh, and did it stop my snoring? Not totally, but there is an improvement. £199 (rem- fit.co.uk).
