Philip Stein Sleep Bracelet 1
REVIEW – For many years I have suffered with and dealt with insomnia. The older I have become the more difficult it has become for me to get even close to 5 continuous hours of sleep. Recently, I have been trying aids like ZZZQuil, etc, with minimal long term results. When I heard about the Philip Stein Sleep Bracelet Nano, I was excited to try it. Did I finally get some much-deserved sleep? Let’s see!!

What is it?

The Philip Sleep Bracelet Nano is a watch type wrist bracelet that is designed to work while you are sleeping and to help with falling asleep faster. Is also helps to provide deeper and more restful sleep and to improve your overall sleep quality and mood. According to the manufacturer, it is a “Natural, non-invasive sleep aid that harnesses and naturally occurring frequencies to improve wearers’ quality of sleep”.

What’s in the box

Design and features


  • Features Natural Frequency Technology which emits subtle frequencies that the body picks up on, thus increasing its production of delta waves (sleep frequencies)
  • Using electronics throughout the day disrupts the body’s natural frequencies, making sleep harder to attain but by stimulating the body’s sleep frequencies users can fall asleep faster and deeper
  • Users report waking up feeling rested and refreshed the morning after sleeping with the bracelet
  • Requires no batteries or charging so its always ready to use
  • Smooth “pajama strap” is ultra-soft and features breathable holes for night-long comfort

The sleep bracelet looks just like a watch but without the watch face. It actually looks and feels like a large watch battery and is all metal. It has a soft and comfortable watch band that seems to be permanently attached.

There is a circular opening in the center of the back of the device that houses some sort of sensor that looks like copper.

There is not much to do with this device other than to place it on your wrist in a comfortable way much like you would a watch. The instructions indicate that you should put it on approximately 15 minutes before bedtime. The manufacturer also indicates that the device should be worn for 30 consecutive nights to achieve the full benefits and I am assuming in an obviously recognizable way.

After 30 days, I have not noticed any difference in my sleep patterns including any better or longer sleep. I cannot say if this works for others, but not for me.

What I like

  • Design style

What I’d change

  • Since there are folks online who claim to have experienced benefits from using this device, I am not sure what to say here.

Final thoughts

I am really not sure about the science behind this device, and since there are many factors that contribute to the ability to sleep well, I do not want to write it off as an absolute myth. For my testing, I will simply say that it did not seem to do anything for me, even after 30 days. At least nothing that I could definitively identify. I am also one to remove my watch before I sleep at night, so having to wear this device actually creates discomfort for me. I did not think that it would since the band is soft and the entire bracelet is relatively light, but it does.

  2. My experience with current high-tech trends:
    – Radio frequency controlled clock near the head = bad sleep
    – Chinese android box used to surf the net in wifi = headache.
    -LED bulb for home lighting = vision problem ( I rub my eyes all the time and without my glasses, my eyes hurt).

    Solution :
    1) move the clock away from my head.
    2) no longer use the Chinese android box and avoid leaving the wifi of the internet box permanently on.
    3) replace my led bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs ( I use models of “phillips” brands).
    Use eyeglasses that filter blue light.

  3. precision:
    -Eyeglasses that filter blue light are especially suitable for monitors (computers, television, smartphones).
    Secondarily for other places where we go but where we don’t live (friends, shops, etc…)

  4. Regarding this sentence in your reviews -“I am really not sure about the science behind this device” , there is no science in this device. It is just a pseudo science scan designed to separate the suckers for $200.

  5. Last week, I was “diagnosed” with sleep apnea (single, live alone). I asked my doctor, on my last yearly visit, that I noticed although probably not very accurate, that my watch, measures sleep and it shows I either move around a lot, or wake up a lot. They wanted to do one of those outrageously expensive sleep studies, but, I didn’t want to pay that much, so they gave me the home version, which showed I did have a problem. This week I get a CPAP. We’ll see how that works after I get use to having a mask on my face at night 😉

    1. Hi Rusty,
      I also have Sleep Apnea and I do use CPAP. I used the mask for years but could not do so consistently because I found the mask to be very uncomfortable. Fortunately, I had to do a second sleep test, and the nurses offered me nasal pillows instead of the mask. That was the answer for me, and I have been using those every night since without issue. Keep in mind that with nasal pillows, it will take about a week to get used to that high air pressure into your nasal passages.
      Good luck!!

      1. Thanks Julian! I’ll look into those as well, but, I have nasal problems that typically “plug me up” at night. I’ve had severe “hay fever” all my life and up until they finally got me “cured” (4 YEARS of once a week allergy shots), unfortunately, years of nose spray I think have done their damage. By the time I wake in the morning, my sinus cavities are usually plugged up. But, I’ll ask. Maybe the forced air will keep them open.
        One of my coworkers used a mask and now uses the nasal pillows. He said it made a big difference.

  6. One of those fancy copper bracelets with the twisted strands and the fancy little orbs on the end would probably work just as well.

    Tbh my dad bought this for me as a gift, and it actually works for me instantly. Idk if it’s cause it’s actually a functioning sleep bracelet or placebo but it works. However, the price is not worth the results, it’s way to expensive for such a hit or miss product so although it works and I like it, I don’t recommend spending your money on it.

  8. I rarely sleep five hours straight, but I usually get over 6 or 7 hours a night. I started taking Magnesium before bed and it has really helped! 250mg before bed. Then if I wake up, I take another. It is actually good for you. Before this, I would sometimes take a half a Gravol if I couldn’t sleep. I live with a snorer, so that is part of the problem. He is finally getting tested for Sleep Apnea, but we have been using a air purifier and nasal strips which help a bit. I am all for anything that can help me sleep. Even if it is psychological! So I was excited to finally buy a Phillip Stein Sleep band on a cruise to Alaska. It is tricky to get them delivered to Canada where I live. Anyway! I find it really helps. I like the feel of it. Nothing works for everyone. I am happy with this.
