Raise your hand if you think you get enough sleep at night. How much is enough anyway? Put in your information on the LARK app (free to download) and you’ll find out exactly how much you should be getting, how much you are getting and the quality of your sleep as well.
For those that get up at a different time than their partner or want to get up after a certain number of hours, the Lark Silent Un-Alarm Clock and Sleep Sensor is an interesting idea. Want to know how many times you’ve gotten up in the middle of the night? LARK can tell you that.
How does LARK work?
You need to have an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad in order to sync the LARK with the (free) app and track your sleep information. There is a wrist band that you put on at night with the LARK device attached (it feels like a large watch on your wrist), which slightly vibrates in order to wake you up when you set the alarm to go off. There is a dock which you can use to keep your iPhone or iPod Touch in place
The LARK costs $99 and is available from the Apple shop, from LARK directly and from Amazon.com.
I don’t have an iPhone, and Greg uses the iPod Touch, so I thought I’d use my iPad2 with it. I didn’t have a problem the first night and liked the LARK because I woke up with it and liked how it tracked my sleep pattern etc. but the second night, I had difficulty getting my iPad to work with the blu-tooth connection. I ended up just giving up on it. If you decide to purchase this, I suggest you only do so if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch. The blu-tooth capabilities on the iPad are inadequate for proper use of this product.
I was sent a LARK in order to conduct my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
