HSL-001 / Sleep duration tracker

HSL-001

Discipline: Product

This sleep duration tracker monitors the time taken to go to sleep and the time elapsed until waking. It also senses when sleep has become shallow from movements of the sleeping body, and rings an alarm at a time when the user will awake refreshed. The soft form and frost finish fits comfortably into a sleeping environment to provide stress-free monitoring. With NFC connectivity, a visual representation of sleep can be created and checked on a smart-phone to support health monitoring.

Discipline: Product

The product is subtle, with its rounded shape, which means that users are happy to place it near them while it monitors their sleep. Its functions are immediately clear and on this level too there is a pleasant relationship between the product and the user. The fact that on top of this it is a modern product that is even smartphone-compatible is no surprise, given the product's great design.
