According to research, most people need 7 to 9 hours of sleep to function properly and stay healthy. However, it is rare to hear that someone falls asleep quickly or has no sleep problems. We can attribute all this to a fast lifestyle and exposure to blue light during the evening hours.
Poor sleep is linked to higher body weight, insomnia, high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression. Sleep helps our brain to recharge so we stay full of energy, awake, and focused tomorrow. If you are a person who typically sleeps less than 7 hours, futuristic nighttime gadgets can improve your sleep quality, boost alertness, and reduce sleepiness throughout the day.

2. Apollo Neuro Wearable
Another futuristic gadget that can help you improve your sleep quality is Apollo Neuro Wearable. Apollo Neuro is a mood-altering wearable wellness device, invented by physicians and neuroscientists that uses gentle vibrations to help your body recover from stress.

Apollo’s technology improves heart rate variability (HRV), so you can focus and get to sleep. This device delivers touch therapy, felt as gentle waves of vibration, which stimulates your “rest and digest” parasympathetic nervous response and restores balance to the body.
The Apollo wearable pairs with a mobile app where you can select the mode that fits your needs, for example: energy, waking up, and being clear and focused. If you have trouble sleeping, the “sleep and renew” mode can help you to fall asleep easily, especially after busy days or travel.
