Zeo Sleep Manager - Bedside Sleep Manage Overview
Zeo is a lightweight wireless headband, bedside display and set of online tools that measure sleep patterns through the electrical signals naturally produced by the brain. The headband secures the SoftWave sensor during the night and immediately begins to record your status. The Zeo headband transmits data wirelessly to the bedside display that stores up to two weeks worth of data on the SD memory card. After you rate how that morning feels, the headband recharges on the bedside display cradle. When you are ready, use the SD memory card reader to upload your information from the bedside display into MyZeo Online. Use the web-based tools to uncover adverse sleep factors and track any changes you might make to improve your sleep habits.
The Zeo Bedside Display and SmartWake
The bedside display allows users to change SmartWake or alarm clock settings as well as provide quick access to your sleep data. SmartWake triggers your alarm clock at the 'almost-awake' sleep phase closest to your wake time. Zeo identifies four sleep cycles: Awake, REM and Stages 3 and 4 deep sleep. A typical sleep cycle takes 90-110 minutes. During Stage 1 of your sleep cycle, you sleep lightly. At Stage 2, your sleep gets progressively deeper. Stages 3 and 4, also known as "Delta Sleep", you sleep the heaviest and your body rebuilds itself.
SmartWake is a Zeo algorithm that monitors your sleep cycles and waits for the ideal waking moment such as a Stage 1 or 2 cycle. Set the alarm window to your typical morning wake-up time and Smartwake will attempt to wake you within a range as wide as 90 minutes from your wake up time. For example, a 20 minute window setting for a wake up time of 6:30 would allow the SmartWake to start the audible alarm at the most optimal awake state between 6:10 and 6:50. Once a light sleep phase appears, the Zeo alarm begins beeping, gently at first and then progressively louder until you awake. Waking up at the perfect time eliminates the grogginess you experience in the morning.
The ZQ score is a daily measurement of sleep quantity and quality, allowing you to quickly gauge each night's results. Every morning, the bedside display generates a ZQ score, several sleep data totals, and a graph charting individual sleep phases in a 5-minute increment. The bedside display will also show you daily sleep totals and other measurements such as:
- Detailed nightly graph
- 7-Day totals graph
- Total Sleep Time (Total Z)
- Time to fall Asleep (Time to Z)
- Times woken
- Percentage in each phase
- Time in Wake
- Time in Rem
- Time in Light
- Time in Deep
MyZeo Online Tools
MyZeo is the link between how you live and how you sleep. The interactive website provides a series of tools that help you visualize your sleeping habits. Once you login and register your device, MyZeo lets you upload data and instantly generates graphs for evaluation. Use the Sleep Journal and Sleep Stealer questions to record any factors that may have affected your night. The 7 Sleep Stealers are actually a set of generalized questions that group hundreds of influential sleep factors into seven main categories.
ZQ Breakdown explains how ZEO arrives at the ZQ Score. The graph can display key total times for specific days, weeks, or months. The ZQ score is based on the total amount of time you sleep (Total Z) pus the amount of restorative sleep (Deep and REM) minus any disruptions (Time awake and woken).
My Sleep History allows you to evaluate particular sleep totals in graph form. Choose from any of the measurements listed above. The graph can display daily, weekly, or monthly totals in ten period increments.
Sleep Graph is a color coded bar graph similar to the sleep phase measurement found on the bedside display. This page also shows the same data within a pie graph and various other measurements like bed time, feeling scores, and Sleep Stealer factors.
Trends allow users to see a plotted line graph of specific time totals along with an overlay of a bar graph representing key sleep factors that occurred each day. This view helps compare any sleep factors that may help or hurt your efforts towards a better night's sleep.
Cause and Effect is a comparison bar graph of two selected data points (Energy Level vs Morning Feel). The graph will only display the last five days of sleep data.

I've only used for 3 nights but it has given some specific insight into sleep quality. The online program for analyzing sleep patterns seems very usefull. My wife is now wanting one. more...

To begin, the Zeo requires you to continuously purchase sensor pads from the manufacturer because they supposedly "wear out" after 3 months. My Zeo arrived without an included replacement sensor pad, which the documentation indicated should have been present. Additionally, I have serious doubts about the accuracy of this device. It will frequently register that I am in REM sleep when in fact I have not even fallen asleep yet. On nights that I have difficulty falling asleep, it will sometimes register a good 30 minutes of false REM sleep while I am still awake looking at the clock. On nights that I distinctly remember waking up, the Zeo will register 0 times woken the following morning. In fact, I don't believe mine has ever registered more than 1 time woken in the two weeks I have used it. In the end, I can't trust something that makes this many errors in its readings, and therefore really have no use for this clock. As a standard alarm clock without the sleep functionality, it is very mediocre. This was not a good purchase. more...

ZO arrived promptly, nicely packaged and undamaged. I have just begun to explore but it appears to be packed with functions and information and relatively easy to understand. One problem is evident, if you have sleep apnea and use a CPAP with a mask other than nasal pillow mask you will have trouble finding enough brow to accomodate the mask and the ZO sensor. I expect my quantity and quality of sleep to improve significantly with the assistance of this teacher. more...

I use a full-face CPAP mask. The upper pressure setting established in 2003 at a sleep study was 20 inches of H2O. That is about at the top design pressure of the mask. I bought the ZEO to help determine if the pressure could be reduced to a more manageable pressure without consequences. It has initially shown me that 16 inches is better, with fewer wake periods and more rest. The sensor records all the various types of sleep levels and graphs the results relative to time. It is performing great, as a well-designed system should. The online sleep help and uploaded data comparisons are very helpful. I would recommend it. more...
