Personal Sensors: Measure Your Sleep with Zeo

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… At $199, Zeo’s tool is definitely not cheap. The FitBit, which also measures sleep, clocks in at $99 and the popular Sleep Cycle iPhone app (which measures your movement during the night with the iPhone’s built-in motion sensors) only costs $0.99. The Zeo, however, gives you a complete package, including a bedside radio and an adaptive alarm which works similar to Sleep Cycle and tries to wake you up when you are already in a light sleep phase. Unlike its cheaper competitors, the Zeo uses a more sophisticated EEG headband that measures your brainwave activity every two minutes. The other tools rely on motion sensors. You can find a more in-depth review of the Zeo here. Tags:#Internet of Things#news#web frederic lardinois One of the big trends on the Internet today is people’s penchant for measuring every aspect of their lives with the help of diaries and personal sensors. Most of the tools allow you to quantify your daily activity deal with fitness and exercise, but a number of new gadgets also try to measure how well you sleep. One of these tools is the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach, which has been on the market for a while but is currently making a major marketing push. The company’s headband measures the quality of your sleep and allows you to evaluate the quality of sleep you are getting with the help of a bedside companion device and online tools. Today, the company is also announcing a development API that will allow third-party developers to access Zeo’s data. Thanks to this, a tool that measures your exercise data can now mash this information up with your sleep data (total sleep time, amount of deep and REM sleep etc.) and give you a better overview of your general body metrics. The first two products that will integrate Zeo’s data are DailyBurn and the mobile, GPS-based iPhone and Android fitness tool RunKeeper.

Empowerment Week for Students in St. Elizabeth

first_imgThe St. Elizabeth Homecoming Foundation will launch its Students’ Empowerment Week at the Newell High School on Monday, November 5, where it will run until November 15. Some 100 persons from different sectors of the society will share their experiences with students at all the schools in the parish during the period. The programme will seek to empower students to: develop positive values and attitudes; and emphasise the importance of acquiring a good education for personal development to enhance national development. Head of the Foundation, Donna Parchment-Brown, said the initiative will be very “inspirational for the children and the teachers to have St. Elizabethans come in and honour the school for the day.” “They will talk about what they do, and how they fulfill their own ambitions. It is very good for St. Elizabethans to reconnect with the youth and their schools. Our objective is to strengthen that connection, and hopefully inspire the schools to do greater work,” Mrs. Parchment-Brown told JIS News. Principal of the Newell High School, Lackett Cuff, said the school community is pleased with the planned activity, as it can boost the students’ approach to learning. He is also suggesting that the participants explore establishing long term relationships with the institutions, through scholarships and bursaries. “We are extremely happy for this initiative, and as an educator I am fully supportive of the gesture, because I believe that the students can derive benefit from this programme. A number of these individuals are persons with whom they (students) can associate; it will serve as a motivation to our students, as some of these individuals have come from similar humble beginnings,” Mr. Cuff said. “To see them achieve success, it can be a way of helping them to understand the value of education, and to take schooling very seriously,” the Principal said, adding that the support could be expanded into mentorship programme. The Students’ Empowerment Week is part of the Foundation’s Homecoming activities that are held annually to promote achievements of the parish, to boost the economy, and to motivate individuals to move forward.last_img read more
