BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - Zeo® (www.myzeo.com), the leading sleep management company, today announced the introduction of Zeo Sleep Manager Pro, the first sleep tracking product that provides its users with a free, personalized sleep quality assessment that then generates expert advice specifically customized to help improve their sleep.
Like the rest of the Zeo product line, Zeo Sleep Manager Pro features a lightweight, wireless headband that can track all phases of sleep, including Light, Deep and REM sleep, by measuring brain waves, muscle tone and eye movement with clinically proven accuracy. Users' sleep data is then wirelessly transmitted to the Zeo Sleep Manager mobile app on their iOS or Android smartphones or tablets.
However, with the introduction of Zeo Sleep Manager Pro, iPhone, iPad and iPod users will now also receive free, expert sleep advice inside their mobile app, based on a highly personalized assessment of their nightly sleep quality. The color-coded, easy-to-understand sleep assessment, backed up by Zeo's global database of over one million nights of real sleep quality data, will help users better understand when they are sleeping well, what they need to improve and how their sleep quality compares to others. Zeo Sleep Manager Pro is also more portable, as users can now plug their headbands directly into an outlet without a bedside docking station. Zeo Sleep Manager Pro users will also be able to:
- See how they really sleep and get their ZQ scores - Each morning, users will receive data on total sleep time, time in REM and Deep sleep, how long it took to fall asleep and how often they really woke up. Users will also receive a comprehensive sleep score, known as ZQ, which measures sleep quality and can be shared via email and social networks.
- Access additional customized advice and free coaching online - Zeo Sleep Manager Pro users also have access to the "About Sleep" section of myZeo.com and a free "7 Steps to Sleep Fitness" coaching program, curated with the help of Zeo's world-class sleep expert advisory board. On myZeo.com, users can also sync their sleep data with their personal sleep account and discover how lifestyle factors such as caffeine, stress and bedroom environment affect their sleep quality with the popular Zeo "Cause and Effect" Web tool. Over time, users will be able to visualize their sleep in order to better understand what advice is helping them to improve.
- Wake up feeling more refreshed - With Zeo Sleep Manager Pro's SmartWake™ feature, users can wake up at the optimal point in their sleep cycles, helping them feel refreshed and energized and minimizing grogginess in the morning.
"Zeo Sleep Manager Pro is a state-of-the-art example of where digital consumer healthcare needs to go," states Dave Dickinson, president and CEO of Zeo. "Most frustrated sleepers want to know exactly what they need to do as individuals to help them improve their sleep. They want highly personalized expert advice; they want it immediately, and they want it for free. We have been working hard with leading behavioral experts to make this new personalized experience simple, yet powerful."
Zeo Sleep Manager Pro is currently available in the U.S. for $99 at myZeo.com, Best Buy and Amazon.com. An international version, known as Zeo Sleep Manager Pro+ is also now available for sale.
