Smart Mattress

Phones and watches are uncomfortable to have around all night or tagged on your arm. Getting a mattress that records your sleeping cycle and movements and general body sleep quality helps. The mattress also adapts to your posture and needs, it and adjusts for you to fit in it just right. The mattress also plays relaxing music as you sleep, and when you need to wake up.

Smartduvet

These minutes awake can be detrimental as you might end up not catching any more sleep. It is also self-regulatory, and you get to sleep throughout the night.
