Hello, the company that developed Sense has not compromised the ease of use over good looks. The device is very easy to use and works automatically- the only requirement is to plug it in and switch it on. To activate the Sense, you need to wave a hand over it. If it glows green, this means that the environment is suitable for a good night’s sleep. And if there is a problem, like too much light, high temperature, poor air quality, etc, it will glow orange. Besides, the Sense has an equivalently smart alarm system which wakes you up within half-hour of your desired time when you are in the light phase of sleep to make you feel refreshed instead of groggy. But it does not have a snooze option. The different metrics, i.e. temperature, humidity, etc. are recorded along with the sleep pattern and present in a graphical form which is then further analyzed for you to tell you how each factor affects your quality of sleep. Apart from this, the Sense isolates those time duration when you were in deep sleep and records the number of time you woke up in the night and at what time you got out of the bed. It also records in how much you fall sleep after lying on the bed. The data presented by the device is pretty accurate and easy to understand.
