UL­TI­MATE ALARM CLOCK

Runner's World (UK) - - Tech Special -

Withings Aura Con­nected Alarm Clock

This sleek de­vice has a hol­low bowl filled with light – red at night, blue in the morn­ing – that dims and bright­ens to help you sleep. The base mea­sures your room’s am­bi­ent light, tem­per­a­ture and sound, and gives in­sight on what dis­rupts your slum­bers.

£149.95, withings.com

MOOD LIGHT­ING

Philips Hue White Am­biance Starter Kit

These bulbs can be used in any light fit­ting and set to 50,000 shades of white light, tran­si­tion­ing from vi­brant day­light to a softer yel­low glow that puts you at peace in the evening. A wire­less light switch and bridge let you sched­ule the lights to suit your hours.

£99.95 (ex­tra bulbs £25), john­lewis.com

SHAKE AND WAKE

Fit­bit Charge 2

An ac­tiv­ity mon­i­tor that can also log your runs, the Charge 2 has an au­to­matic sleep tracker and vi­brat­ing alarm, so you won’t dis­turb your bed part­ner when you sneak out for those early miles.

£139.99, fit­bit.com

DIG­I­TAL SHEEP COUNTER

2breathe Sleep In­ducer

This has a small sen­sor on a strap around your ab­domen to mea­sure and con­trol your breath­ing pat­tern. The con­nected app acts like an adap­tive metronome for your breaths, slow­ing slightly with each cy­cle to aid sleep.

$180 (£145), 2breathe.com (US site ships to UK)

UNOBTRUSIVE TRACKER

Hello Sense with Voice

The Sense uses a small chip clipped to your pil­low to track how you toss and turn. As you pre­pare for sleep, you can speak to it as you would to Ama­zon’s Echo and tell it to set an alarm, play white noise or check the room tem­per­a­ture.
