With a wave of new technology hitting the market in recent years, Samsung’s latest device is sure to blow past the competition. They have launched the second generation of smart watches – the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. These watches are a sequel to the Galaxy Gear, which struggled to impress consumers because of a battery life issue and minor design flaws.
Samsung has also integrated technology that no other wearable smartwatch has been able to fulfill. The same technology that has made sleep apps that help cure sleep deprivation so successful is available on the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo.
Many similar devices can track the user’s actions such as blood pressure or sleep patterns, but what they can’t do is treat any of the issues associated with the user’s health issues. While the Gear 2 can’t prescribe a miracle drug to fix poor sleep habits, it has an integrated sleep deprivation treatment program.
For those who just can’t sleep or are plagued with bouts of sleeplessness on a regular basis, these smartwatches have a feature that will play scientifically composed music, binaural beats, and neurosensory algorithms to help. This technology has been researched and tested to help NASA astronauts get to sleep and now average, everyday consumers that can’t sleep will have access to a wearable device with integrated, all-natural sleep solutions created by Utah-based app developer Sleep Genius .
Neuroscientists with professional endorsements wrote the neurosensory algorithms that battle sleep deprivation and encourage sleep by creating specific mood-states. The same technology used in binaural beats is used in the watch as well. These beats help the brain transition into a sleep through simulating a sense of rocking in the brain, much like a baby rocking to sleep.
Some users might have heard of white noise before but what they don’t know is that it could be hindering their sleep. Pink noise has been proven to be more relaxing with high and low frequencies to melt away stress and avoid sleep deprivation. Pink noise that is integrated into devices is less harsh than their common, white-noise counterparts.
Sleep deprivation is gradually becoming a public health epidemic. Integrating sleep deprivation avoidance technology into a wearable device such as the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo not only sets the path for future innovation, but also shows the company’s commitment to catering to consumer needs.
