Zeo Personal Sleep Coach Reviews

If you are in the market for an alarm clock as a gift this year you may find that they are getting more competitive than cell phones, MP3 players and GPS devices. If you have tried other alarms like Shocking Alarm Clock or Wake n’ Bacon and found them to be a bit unbearable you may want to try the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach, reviews have shown you can get data on the quantity, quality and depth of your sleep. Made by Newton, Mass-based Zeo, formerly known as Axon Labs in Rhode Island in 2005 and first called SleepSmart it was essentially a device that would wake you up when you were in a light sleep cycle.

Today Zeo’s headband will track your sleep cycles via a sensor that monitors electrical signals in your brain, transmits the data to the bedside display where it is stored on an SD card using the same concept as a sleep clinic. Your sleep information can be uploaded to the Zeo Personal Coaching website where it keeps your sleep score or ZQ on the 7 sleep stealers and the 7 step sleep fitness program. The data measures how long you are in Light Sleep, Rem Sleep and Non-REM or Deep Sleep as well as how long it took you to fall asleep easy.

Some find the best part of the Zeo is the SmartWake feature. After all it is an alarm clock, but instead of waking you up at an exact time you will tell it to wake you up near the time that is best for you. SmartWake will observe your sleep patterns and wake you up + or – 30 minutes when you are in a light sleep cycle and not when you are dreaming or in a deep sleep. This will help you feel more refreshed when you wake up.

One of the major complaints about using the Zeo was using the headband night after night the pressure marks may cause irritation, burns or a condition known as acne mechanica. Acne mechanica is a form of acne caused or aggravated by heat, covered skin, constant pressure and repetitive friction against the skin. Zeo responded to these complains by suggesting that the most probable cause is a dirty sensor or acne mechanica. The headband can get dirty over a period of time due to a build-up of oil, dead skin cells, sweat, lotions, etc. Depending on your skin type this can result in irritation. If you think you have a dirty headband it is recommended to either replace it or hand wash it in a mild detergent like Woolite. If the condition is acne mechanica you may want to consult with a dermatologist to get a script or apply a topical acne medication that contains salicylic acid or benzyl peroxide. Many people get acne mechanica from hats, caps and anything else that may be tight or rub against the skin even jeans and headbands.
