When you don’t get a good night’s sleep, the suffering is real. Not only do you not perform as well the next day, you are more susceptible to headaches and even getting a cold. But getting better sleep isn’t always that simple. You can use all the relaxation treatments in the world- lavendar pillow sprays, turning off screens before bed, playing soothing spa music – but sometimes it just isn’t enough. But some people are finding better sleep by monitoring their sleep quality with the BodiMetrics O2 Vibe. It’s an oxygen and heart rate recorder you wear at night so you can find out which actions you’re taking are working which aren’t so helpful.
While the BodiMetrics O2 Vibe does not track sleep stages, it does track motions you make during sleep, your average pulse rate, and it let you know your O2 levels while you sleep. Simply connect a USB cord to the device and wear the thumb ring sensor at night. Download the data to the O2 Vibe app and or most Android and iOS devices. BodiMetrics also makes it easy to track long-term data in the cloud for free. Just one single charge records up to 20 hours, so you’ll only need to charge it about every two days.
It is important to note that this sleep quality monitor is not made to detect sleep apnea but customers on Amazon say it helps them monitor it. It does, however, measure blood oxygen saturation levels and heart rate pretty efficiently while you sleep. If you’ve been diagnosed with COPD or heart disease, a device like this can be beneficial since these diseases negatively impact oxygen levels.
Furthermore, you may just simply want to know how your workout routine is affecting your sleep. This can help you do that by tracking your oxygen levels and movement at night. It will clearly show you how your health is progressing as you’re becoming more fit and healthy.
Ok, so how much does the BodiMetrics O2 Vibe cost? It is on the pricey side, around $200 on Amazon. It’s got fairly high ratings for comfort and value
