Millions of Americans suffer from sleep disorders. Many have been told by their doctors to do a sleep study which can cost well-over a thousand dollars and often times are not covered by insurance.  There is a fairly new gadget that's easy to use and although not designed to take the place of a professional sleep study, it's helping people all around the world learn about their sleeping habits and patterns.

It's called the Zeo Sleep Manager Pro.  This sleep management system is Zeo's new and improved device for tracking the quality of your sleep. Through the data the device receives from your brain, it gives you personal advice to help improve it.

All you do is wear the lightweight, adjustable SoftWave headband at night.  It measures how much restorative REM sleep you are getting which is vital to your overall health and performance.

Sensors in the headband send data wirelessly to your smartphone and graphs your sleep pattern.  The Zeo Sleep Manager Pro will tell you how long you spent in deep sleep, light sleep, how often you were awake and even how long it took you to fall asleep.

There is also a Smartwake alarm feature that wakes you at the optimal point in your sleep cycle so that you wake up feeling refreshed.

This may be the perfect way to let someone know you love them this Christmas.
