Lark Bracelet Helps Improve Quality of Your Sleep
Dubbed the “silent alarm clock,” “sleep monitor” and “personal sleep coach,” Lark is a bracelet that sleepers wear on their wrist as they snooze. Sensors track their sleep throughout the night, sending the data wirelessly to the Web and their iPhone or iPad app. In the morning, the bracelet gently vibrates to wake them up. It also offers an assessment and suggestions to get a better night’s rest.
Lark - part of an emerging field of health and mobile technology - was released with much buzz last summer at Apple Stores in the United States. Since then, the Mountain View startup has expanded to sell its silent alarm clock at Apple Stores around the globe, as well as other national retailers such as Best Buy. A partner with the National Sleep Foundation, it has also begun working with doctors, therapists and other health care professionals who use the device with their patients.
