Organization of work, time management 9 Comments »


In the context of the recently published article «How to become early bird» want to tell about interesting Assistant «professional» zhayvoriv - «reasonable» alarm aXbo. Principle of the alarm based on the recognition phase of sleep, which is the owner. Alarm analyzes your behavior during sleep and wakes you when you prokynutys best. Yuri Zozulya aXbo tested in action and wrote about it a good review.

Under the new year I became a happy owner of an alarm aXbo. This alarm also bought a work of my colleague, so it allowed me to get more information. I want a review of the wonders of technology, and to share their impressions and conclusions.


  1. Alarm
  2. Two sensors
  3. Two Wristbands
  4. Charger with adapters for a variety of sockets
  5. USB-cable
  6. Instructions in English and German
  7. Interesting and colorful box:)

The alarm clock is made in stylish a la Apple. Display clear and looks very impressive. Display Illumination blue. Weight small. Alongside is the orange stickers «SPAC» (Sleep.Phase.Alarm.Clock) - ideas that designers I never understood, but it annoys me, not much;)

The set includes two sensors - sensor 1 and sensor 2. Note: the first sensor to be used for the first profile in the alarm, the second for the second (sensors numbered). Each sensor is designed for an average of 4-5 years of daily use. Then you will need to buy new, because the replacement batteries are not available.

Wristbands are also two. They are different in size, a little less than the other. I think the reason is simple: two people who sleep in one bed - it is likely people (Wristband more) and women (slightly less than a wristband):) Wristbands differ among themselves not only in size but location stickers «SPAC», so they are easier to discern. If Wristbands standard size does not fit, you can order an alternative set of desired size. Each wristband on his domestic side, there is a special pockets for the sensor. Wristbands made little scamp: uneven line, a thread sticking out, and generally can be done accurately. Although usability is not affected.

The charger is equipped with various adapters for different standards sockets. In the instructions and the site tells a lot about intelligent charging system, and initially it seems that the alarm should be attached to the network cable. But as it turned out, the main mode of the alarm - this is from batteries. I specifically z'yasovuvav this issue in support.

USB-cable is required to download data from the alarm clock on your computer and to update the firmware.

Instruction to set the alarm. Although management very quickly get used because it is very well organized.

Box attracts interesting design, so if you want somebody to give this alarm clock, the extra packaging is optional.


On general principle I have already told work here (RUS). As a result of my observations and experiments, I made this conclusion: the alarm is not a measure pulse, pressure, or nerve impulses - all very simple, it determines the phase of sleep by your movements. How it works:

  • Activate the sensor. If activated sensor 1 (2), then you need to configure the alarm profile 1 (2). Alarm no problem working with two sensors simultaneously. Without activation sensors, he works as a normal alarm clock.
  • Sensor into a wristband in special position. More information is in the instructions.
  • Wristband worn on the hand. Right dress on the left hand, left-handed right. What is due can not say.
  • Further falls asleep and the morning alarm clock to wake you try to «correct» phase.

Alarm clock starts analyze your movements for 30 minutes before the scheduled period of revival and based on this information enables the signal. The basic principle is to awaken you in time fast asleep.

In the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) phase, we dream dreams and body is in a paralyzed state. When a phase of light sleep, muscles are activated and the man begins to shuffle in bed. At this point the alarm and wakes us, not letting go in the slow phase (deep) sleep. The effect is actually simple - the alarm bell at a time when the muscles and the brain active (people moving in bed), so get out of bed and start your day much easier, there is the effect of cheerfulness.
