Want the best? Head straight to the top 6 sleep gadgets we’re geeking out over!

A recent study found that the average US adult gets less than 6 hours of sleep per night [source].

That’s concerning because experts recommend 7 – 9 hours, and lack of sleep can lead to a variety of problems, including mood changes, memory problems, health risks, and an increased chance of getting into a car accident.

It’s fair to say we need to do something about it!

Here are our favorite gadgets for getting a great night of sleep tonight and every night.

The Best Sleep Technology & Gadgets In 2021

1. MUSE S Overnight Sleep Tracker & Meditation Headset

Meditate, track your sleep, and fall asleep to soothing soundscapes with the MUSE S Overnight Sleep Tracker & Meditation Headset.

Using an EEG and accelerometer alongside the free Muse: Meditation & Sleep app, this sleep gadget monitors your movements and brain activity and calculates the data to give you a sleep score.

Additionally, when you use your own earbuds, you can fall asleep listening to soothing soundscapes or use the app for guided meditation.

The soft, breathable fabric headband has a 10-hour battery life, so you can listen to soundscapes while you sleep, track your sleep overnight, then wake up and meditate right away, all on one charge.

2. REM-Fit ZEEQ Smart Pillow

What if your pillow could sing you to sleep, track your sleep quality, and wake you up at the ideal time during your sleep cycle?

While it doesn’t literally sing you to sleep, the REM-Fit ZEEQ Smart Pillow can stream music or soothing soundscapes through its 8 embedded speakers, and that’s just the beginning of what it can do.

3. Philips SmartSleep Simulated Sunrise & Sunset Lamp

The modern workday isn’t very conducive to sleeping and waking when the sun sets and rises like humans used to do.

8. LittleHippo Children’s Night Light, Sound Machine & Alarm Clock

An all-in-one sleep gadget for your child, LittleHippo Children’s Night Light, Sound Machine & Alarm Clock helps them fall asleep with soothing sounds, lets them know when it’s OK to get up, and works as a nap timer.

When your kid goes to sleep, so does the device. Up to half an hour before you want to let them out of bed, it glows yellow, and when it’s OK for them to fully wake up and come out of their room, it glows green.
