Not sleeping well? Zeo Sleep Manager Mobile might help you get more refreshing sleep. According to the vendor, its mobile sleep management system measures and tracks your sleep patterns, including how much restorative REM and deep sleep you actually get, as well as how many times you wake up--all without having to spend the night in a sleep lab.

A lightweight Zeo Softwave wireless headband uses sensors to record brainwaves, eye movements, and muscle tone to track the patient's sleep stages throughout the night. While the patient snoozes, the system sends the sleep data wirelessly to the individual's smartphone. The system also includes the Zeo mobile charge dock, the Zeo Sleep Manager mobile app, online analytical tools, and an email-based personalized coaching program. The analysis helps Zeo users understand their sleep patterns through a ZQ score, which is a number grade given by the system summarizing the user's sleep quantity and quality. A coaching program provides users guidance on getting a better night's sleep. When it's time to rise, Zeo says the system's Smart Alarm wakes you at the most optimal point, but never late, so that you feel refreshed, not sluggish or frazzled. The system costs $99.99

WakeMate is a great tool as well. It tracks sleep data and wakes you up too, using an iPhone/iPod connected via BlueTooth. It's cheaper, but does not have any type of email coaching program. I'm currently doing a full review and will be posting it soon over on my blog (www.lukegerhardt.com), FYI.
