New version of the Sleeptracker Elite Watch

sleeptrackerOver three years ago, I reviewed the original Sleeptracker watch which claimed to help a person wake more refreshed, by waking them at the perfect time during their sleep cycle. It didn’t work well for me, but there are a lot of people that swear by it. Those people will be happy to learn that there’s a new snappier looking men’s and women’s version available. This latest version includes a vibrating alarm, as well as the ability to download sleep data to a PC. Hmmm, maybe I should give it another try? What do you think?

    I think you should. I love reading about all of your adventures with various sleep related products.

    Now if they could rig one of those watches up to a souped-up TENS unit and shock me awake, that would work for me. (Sadly, I’m only partly kidding, I often contemplate making a device that shocks me when I grind my teeth at night)

      @Meredyth It is not unusual for me to sleep through a couple of alarms and even the radio playing. 😉

    I’ve toyed with buying one of these for a while….especially since I’m not a morning person.

    Maybe this new model works better?

      @Blacknimbus that’s what I’m wondering too. The one I reviewed didn’t have a very loud alarm. This one vibrates.

    Have you seen those alarm clocks in cartoons that lift up the headboard of bed and drop you on the floor? Maybe you and I need to invent one of those 🙂

      @Meredyth Do you know where I can buy one? 😉

      @Jackie Too funny! 🙂

    @Meredyth: I think techies/gadgeteers like us might wake up when the alarm goes off and says “Your computer is on fire”….lol

    Dear Julie,
    Thanks for the review and presenting this product. I got it, tried it and it works perfectly for me. Sometimes in the morning before waking up I doze on and off, and the watch really helps to get the right moment of remembering to get up.
