The innovative aXbo Sleep Phase Alarm Clock from Austria is on the market already since a couple of years. The company is now offering a aXbo Single Edition in black with a limited of 2,000 units starting mid-October.
Every aXbo Single can also be easily updated with a new sound package of six waking sounds and three chill-out sounds using the enclosed USB cable.
And if you find another bedfellow, the aXbo Single can be easily upgraded with an additional sensor for a second person.
The aXbo Sleep Phase Alarm Clock supervises your sleep by means of a movement sensor worn on your wrist.
The aXbo sleep phase alarm clock calculates your optimal waking time on the basis of your body movements, identifying the sleep phases and waking you gently within the last 30 minutes before the preset time at a moment when you are already almost awake, giving you an effortless start to the day and letting you enjoy a greater feeling of wellbeing and full productivity.
You also can analyze you sleep with aXbo. The specially developed aXbo research software offers you the possibility of analyzing your own sleep behavior.
Your body movements are collected by means of a movement sensor in a toweling wristband, and can then be transferred to your computer with the USB cable, displayed graphically using aXbo research and then compared, allowing you to draw conclusions about your own sleep cycles.
The frequency of your movements is directly correlated to the sleep phases. Deep sleep and REM phases are characterized by increasing lack of movement, while in the light sleep phases and in the transition between two sleep phases we move much more frequently.
As well as analyzing your movements, the software also tells you your sleeping latency (how long you take to fall asleep), how long you’ve slept for, and the exact waking time each night.
The aXbo Single can be ordered online at www.axbo.com at the cost of 179.00 € (~$263). U.S. shipping is an additional 25 € (~$37) bringing the total cost to about $300 for the aXbo Single. The original aXbo clock is also on sale on Amazon.com.
