Therabody’s new sleep wearable, the SmartGoggles device, is a pair of smart eye massagers that work to disperse muscle tension around your eyes. The SmartGoggles use vibration and heat settings to help you fall asleep faster, and they come equipped with a biometric sensor for a more personalized experience.
While tracking your sleep is a great way to analyze your sleep health, SmartGoggles may be able to proactively help you improve it. Therabody’s sleep wearable targets conditions such as stress, anxiety, eyestrain, migraines and headaches. Here are some of the best features that can help you sleep better.
1. SmartRelax Mode
The most striking feature of the Therabody SmartGoggles is the SmartRelax mode. In this mode, the goggles adjust vibration and heat settings based on your heart rate. A small biometric sensor sits on the inner edge of the glasses and makes contact with your cheekbone. When it detects a high heart rate, the goggles use that data to optimize the massage settings so they can lower your heart rate and relax you.
The adaptability of these glasses makes them a great way to relax. Most eye massagers have generic presets. However, the SmartGoggles syncs with your biometrics for a more personalized experience. In addition, you can manually control the vibration and heat intensities as desired.
2. SmartGoggles Sleep Mode
SmartGoggles sleep mode goes beyond a simple category of content like Spotify playlists to help you fall asleep faster. Audio tracks and podcasts can help with mental relaxation, but they don’t relieve the eyestrain or tension that makes it harder to fall asleep. And constantly adjusting the massage settings on a device distracts from your main goal: falling asleep.
The sleep mode on SmartGoggles uses clinically designed vibration patterns to induce drowsiness. In this mode, the glasses gently massage your temples while delivering slow vibrations. The wave pattern of the massage is quite soothing and can effectively relieve tension. Even a short five-minute session before going to sleep can improve your sleep quality over time.
3. TheraMind Audio Sources
Make your massage sessions more relaxing by combining them with Therabody’s audio tracks. Within the Therabody app, there is a large audio library called TheraMind. This section is specifically designed to enhance the SmartGoggles experience. TheraMind includes audio tracks designed to deepen relaxation and help you fall asleep faster. You have full control over your sessions through the app while listening to ambient sounds, guided meditations and sleep tracks, all of which stay in sync with the SmartGoggles.
4. SmartGoggles Design and Comfort
The SmartGoggles are designed for comfortable long-term use. Despite the housing of moving electronic parts and batteries, the glasses are lightweight: 420 g (14.8 oz). The outer and inner shells of the glasses are made of synthetic leather and the fastening strap is made of cotton. The SmartGoggles should feel quite comfortable even if you wear them for extended periods of time.
Another important factor is the compact and handy design. Carrying bulky and stiff gear can be a challenge if you travel frequently. SmartGoggles fold up neatly and you can easily store the glasses and their charging cable in the soft carrying case that comes with the product. Whether you want to take a short break from work or relax during a long flight, Therabody SmartGoggles make it easy.
5. Compatibility with Therabody App
The Therabody app is useful for planning relaxing sessions. After you have paired your SmartGoggles with the app via Bluetooth, you can change several settings. For example, while there are manual controls for heat and vibration settings on the goggles, you can also moderate them through the app.
The app also shows you biometric data from SmartRelax mode, as well as a session report. By adjusting settings and combining them with TheraMind content, you can create the most personalized experience to prepare you for sleep.
Improve your sleep health with these SmartGoggles features
Therabody’s newest sleep wearable strives for the utmost in comfort and relaxation. SmartGoggles focuses on eliminating one of the biggest obstacles to better sleep: physical tension.
Sleep trackers like the Apple Watch and Fitbit are great at charting and analyzing sleep patterns. But SmartGoggles are primarily designed to help you fall asleep. Over time, SmartGoggles’ heart rate monitoring and custom massage capabilities can help you fall asleep faster and improve your overall sleep health.
