An Austrian company has just launched an alarm clock that promises to wake its users up when their body is ready to face the day.
The aXbo Sleep Phase Alarm Clock checks 30 minutes before the alarm is due to go off whether your body is in a deep or light phase of sleep, say the manufacturers Infacory Innovations, who presented the gadget at the International Trade Fair for Sports (ISPO) recently in Munich.
With the help of a sensor attached to the user's wrist, aXbo monitors body movements associated with different phases of sleep.
The alarm rings when the clock detects the user is in a light phase of sleep.
The brand new clock costs around 200 euros ($250) in shops and is also available online at www.axbo.com.
