Chief Sub Ed­i­tor Clare Sartin rests her head on the ‘Zeeq Smart Pil­low’ by REM-FIT

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style Sleep -

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).
