Having unveiled its Aura sleep system at CES in January of this year, Withings is now making the innovative product available for purchase. The Aura includes a sensor that’s placed under the mattress capable of continuously monitoring the person’s heart rate, breathing, and movement while sleeping. Additionally, the system keeps track of ambient noise, light, and temperature in the bedroom. All this information is recorded and can be reviewed in the morning to find out what may be causing poor sleep in the middle of the night.
Moreover, the Aura helps the person get to bed and to wake up using a special light that changes in color and intensity. The goal is to have ambient light match the person’s circadian rhythm, gently putting one to sleep and waking when most comfortable and without a sudden loud alarm.
The system comes with a matching smartphone app that can be used to analyze sleep data, set Aura’s timers, and to figure out what’s keeping you awake at night.
