Zeo tells you how you really sleep, and helps you find ways to improve your sleep.

The Zeo Bedside Display puts last night's sleep data at your fingertips and will store up to two weeks of data for easy viewing.
Sleep With Zeo
Step 1: Wear the Zeo Headband
You begin by wearing the Zeo Headband each night. The headband uses our patent-pending SoftWave sensor technology to accurately and safely measure your unique sleep patterns through the electrical signals naturally produced by the brain. As you pass through different levels of sleep--lighter to deeper and back again--the Zeo Headband tracks how you are sleeping.
Step 2: Review Your Sleep Data on the Bedside Display
The Zeo Bedside Display puts last night's sleep data at your fingertips and will store up to two weeks of data for easy viewing. When you wake up, it gives you a personal sleep score - your ZQ - and shows a graph of your Light, Deep and REM sleep over the course of the night. The bedside display will also present you with information about last night's sleep and how it compares to previous nights. The optional SmartWake alarm feature will look for a "natural awakening point" based on your sleep patterns to decrease the grogginess associated with waking from Deep sleep. When SmartWake is selected, Zeo will find a time to wake you within a half-hour of your set time, never later. The result should be a slightly easier way to wake up
The Zeo Headband accurately and safely measured your unique sleep patterns.

Zeo Reveals How You Really Sleep.
Without Zeo, sleep is a mystery.
Are you getting the restorative Deep and REM sleep you need to be your best? How long does it really take you to fall asleep? It's practically impossible to accurately gauge your sleep quality and pinpoint which factors affect it. Everyone's sleep is different, and there's no one-size-fits-all solution for getting a better night's rest.
Zeo scores your sleep quantity and quality.
Imagine knowing both the quality of your sleep and the reasons behind it. Every morning, Zeo will tell you your ZQ--a number that summarizes your sleep's quantity and quality--and lots of other information about your sleep. If you can measure it, you can improve it.
For the first time, you can visualize your sleep.
Using Zeo's included web-based tools, you can easily see exactly how--or whether--you slept through the night.
Zeo Helps You Improve Your Sleep.

===== Overall Rating =====
4 out of 5 stars
There are 2 main items that keep it from being 5 starts.
1 - I have no way to tell if the data is accurate or not. Not sure there is any "fix" for this.
2 - There are waaayyy to many buttons on the device and the on device menus/user interface are not well designed.
I've only used it for 4 nights so far. So, I'll try to update this review after longer use.
Knowledge is power. Understanding what your body does while you sleep is critical to helping you improve your sleep. I've been looking for a device like this for years. I've never found any other device that does close to what this device does for sleep analysis at home. Especially at this relatively low price. From that point alone I'd recommend the device.
===== Me =====
Techie in early 40s with history of sleep issues. I've read up on sleep in general most of my life and have tried many things to improve my sleep. I think I know a lot about sleep and sleep issues. And I know a fair amount about hardware & software design.
=== Hardware Design ===
Overall - 3 out of 5, buttons 2 out of 5
The device itself seems well made and in general well designed. The headband mount is magnetic, keeping the hadband in place while it charges (very nice). The unit size is good, not too big, not too small. The brightness of the display is easily adjustable. Which is important to me since I like a dark room at night.
The buttons and user interface I'd rate a 2 out of 5. I realize there is a lot this thing does. But there are 6 buttons on the top, not including the 4 directional buttons to step through menu (total 10). 2 of the buttons are double wide with 2 icons but don't seem to be rocker buttons. Having the double label just confuses things. All buttons are the similar in size and all small (even the double wide buttons are small). They are evenly distributed across the top and are very close together.
The snooze button is a double wide button on the far right and is the only one with raised bumps. So, they attempted to make the snooze button easy to find. But in my opinion they failed. A good alarm clock should have a big Snooze button, usually in the middle, that is touch discernible from the other buttons. And it should be difficult to accidentally press a non-snooze button when reaching for the snooze half asleep. This is not true here. It's easy to hit a non-snooze button when reaching for the snooze. So, I'm not using the clock for an alarm clock yet. I might in the future, once I'm more familiar with the device.
The headband fits well, stays on and is comfortable. I got used to it quickly but I used to wear a CPAP. So, I'm used to having things strapped to my head when I sleep. One other note, I don't move much when I sleep. So, it's probably less likely that any device would come off when I sleep.
==== On Device Software & Menus ===
3 out of 5 at best
The many buttons and many menus you have to step through make the device more complex to use than it should be. It's difficult at times to determine what button you're supposed to push when stepping through the menus. And it's easy to choose the wrong item. The problem seems to be how they chose to display the menu/instructions on the screen as you step through using the arrow buttons. But even with all the features and settings of this device, this is something they can easily improve.
==== Online Software =====
6 out of 5, yes 6
I work for a very large internet company. So, I'm very familiar with online software in general. And I have to say they have done a GREAT job here. The software is very easy to use and provides lots of great features. There are many ways for you to look at your sleep data. The software interface is very easy to step through the various options and views. The graphs are very clear. The interface buttons are few and well labeled. Again, I can't get over how great the software is in user interface design and functionality. This takes the device from a 3 overall rating to a 4+ rating for me.
===== Privacy concerns with online software =====
3 out of 5 - I'm not happy but not overly concerned
They do ask for a lot of personal and a few questions that they should not need to ask, birthday for example. They should only need to know the year of your birth for sleep analysis. Or possibly the month and year at most. So, this question is a bit of a security risk and should be corrected by Zeo. But, you are not forced to put in real data. And with any site asking for personal information, you should not put in real data if you're uncomfortable with it (Sorry Zeo).
They ask for address, phone number and other data that is clearly to collect information to market to us later. While I don't like this. You're not forced to put in real data (again, sorry Zeo)
And in Zeo's defense. Their online software is VERY nice and it's FREE. It costs a lot of money to setup all the hardware and develop the software to run an online service like they have. And just like with Microsoft, Yahoo, and other companies that offer free internet services, to get something for free you need to be willing to allow them to market to you in exchange.
So, again, Zeo, please improve the security of some of your questions.
And, again Zeo users, Their online software is REALLY GREAT and it's FREE. Giving them some basic information for them to market to us seems like a fair trade.
==== Note to Zeo ====
Thanks for producing this device Zeo! I'd be happy to help you improve your 2.0 version and would happily volunteer as a beta tester.
For me, this product worked as advertised, every morning, I can see how much time I spent in REM sleep, in deep sleep, how long it took me to fall asleep, how long I slept, how many times I woke up, etc. This all rolls up into a calculated 'sleep number' which is a 0-100 score of the quality of your sleep. In addition the base station allows you to very easily manually enter a subjective sleep score (0-5) that it will attach to the data.
The device has some clever design elements. For example, the headstrap sensor docks on the base station very easily (with a magnet) and it uses that dock event to determine that you are awake, and prompts you to enter your subjective sleep score. Also, the base station has a running graph so you can see what your sleep pattern/cycle looked light from the night before.
The only complaint that I have is that the strap is hard to get just right. The elastic strap holds the sensor to your forehead. If it is too loose, the headband falls off and the sensor does not collect data. If it is too tight, it is really uncomfortable. I have used it for ~14 nights and the headband only stayed on about 8 times. I suspect there is a better design for the headstrap that would be comfortable and secure.
Firstly, I LOVE the idea, and for the first couple of weeks, it seemed to work perfectly, it only took me a couple of days to get used to the head-band, and I started noticing I was becoming much more disciplined with my sleeping habits, my caffeine habits, my night-time behaviour... as well as really enjoying the whole process of tracking my data and noticing how different factors of my life influenced it.
But then, after 3 weeks of use (I'd had the product for about 2 months, and wouldn't always take the big alarm clock round to my girlfriend's house.. as well as forgetting to wear the headband sometimes), the headband stopped working.
Customer support was very hot and cold - sometimes not responding at all, sometimes responding very swiftly and helpfully. Eventually they said it probably needed replacing as the headbands do (though its supposed to be every 3 months, not every 3 weeks...). As I live in New Zealand, this was at the time (and probably still), virtually impossible. Zeo tried to charge me something like US$190 (or something ridiculous like that) to ship a little headband to NZ. And amazon wouldn't ship them to NZ. So I have a very expensive alarm clock...
So I gave up on it. Then when I eventually went to store the alarm clock, I pulled the plug out normally, and it broke! I've never seen a plug break before (the metal tooth bit came out)... I recently took it to my electrical engineer friend who fixed it for me, he said he'd never seen such a shoddily made plug before.
Also, on the oft-spoken-of headband burn - at first I didn't get these, but after a couple of weeks I did. Nice big red dots on my forehead all day, as well as some mild pain.
I really wish that someone would invest in Zeo and transform them into a decent company who made their products high-quality, because the idea is awesome, well over a dozen of my friends who I told about it were interested in getting one at first when I was raving about it, but thankfully it went wrong before any of them forked out on it and I could warn them away.
I sincerely hope that in the future Zeo improves their manufacturing and develop this product because this has sooo much potential (for example imagine this crossed with one of laberge's nova-dreamers...)
