    I've learned today about this watch that claims to monitor your sleep and wake you at a point in your sleep cycle that causes you to feel refreshed. This is especially interesting to me because I never feel refreshed when I wake up. I always feel tired and I have to drag myself out of bed. It doesn't matter if I sleep 6 hours, 8 hours, or 10 hours (thank you college). I figure a lot of this has to do with getting more strict about going to bed on a schedule, but so far I haven't seen any improvements.

    I consider myself a pretty reserved consumer. I'm not one to jump at gadgets, but this watch seems to get some good reviews. It does come with a 30-day Money Back guarantee, but those always depend on who you're dealing with.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this or links to other reviews?

    Sleep apnea and frequent erections keep me from getting a good nights sleep and feeling refreshed. Come to think of it they have the same effect on my wife.:)

    I'd say you need a new mattress!
    I had sleep problems for about a year and a half until we recently got a new bed - now i sleep like a baby and wake up more refreshed - unless I've been sleeping next to bucknola's wife! :wink2:

    Actually I'm a registered Polysomnographer in Ohio and there are numerous things you should know about your sleep personnally before you buy something like that. You first need to know if you suffer from any of the respiratory-related sleep disorders. Secondly you should try and document for yourself your normal sleep patterns. There may be an underlying problem with you physically that is keeping you from feeling rested, mainly apnea. If you don't have these things occurring you then should look at your sleep hygiene i.e. schedule, diet, comfort and so on. I could give you an idea about wether the watch would let you know anything if I had more information from you to go on, feel free to PM me if you want.

    I had the same problems with poor quality of sleep. then I made the greatest purchase of mine and my wife's life.

    Tempuredic mattress.

    Expensive? yup
    worth it? every freakin dime :)

    Took a while (about 6 months) to adjust to it but man is it worth it.

    We ended up falling into a great deal on a whole new bed w/ box spr and mattress. i can't tell you what brand it is, but it's about a foot thick, weighs a ton, and is a pillow-top. the top of our mattress is 3 1/2 feet off the floor - you almost need a stepladder to get on the damn thing.

    I wanted to go for a tempurpedic, but the wife hated it. air mattresses are good too, and also expensive.
