I’m the sort of sleeper who typically wakes a few minutes before the alarm and has no problems getting out of bed. But we’ve all known people who hit the snooze button for an hour after the alarm goes off. If you are the sort who has a hard time getting up each morning, Kello might help you get over your sleep and wake issues.
Kello is a fancy alarm clock that uses science to help you fall asleep faster and wake easier. It works its magic by limiting you to a certain number of snooze button presses each week. Once you hit your limit, which is set by an app for Android or iOS devices, Kello can turn on the lights, beep louder, or change your playlist. Since it’s internet connected, it can stream your morning wakeup tunes from services like Spotify or Deezer.
If you want to wake earlier, It can also shave a few minutes off your alarm each day until you are at your goal time. To help you fall asleep, the Kello has a breathing icon that helps you breath slowly and deeply.
The Kello clock will cost you $109(USD), with shipping starting in March 2017. Less than half-way to its end date, Kello has raised over $250,000, blowing through its modest $50,000 Kickstarter goal.
