PEAR / Earbud


PEAR is a smart and professional sleep assistant that not only tracks accurate sleeping data but also helps people who are suffering from sleep disturbances enjoy a high-quality sleep. To monitor sleeping patterns,PEAR incorporates smart sensors in the ear buds that are able to measure brain waves, body movements, temperature and heart rate. Paired with a smartphone application, it can provide a hypnotic synthesis of sounds for sleep maintenance and sleep encouragement. The ability to analyse a person’s sleeping conditions enables the product analytics to lower the music volume gradually and rouse the sleeper at the most proper time.
