Ironically, some folks have just as much trouble waking up as they do sleeping. LARK is an interactive sleep system that can help with both problems. It works in conjunction with your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. Simply download the free LARK app, strap on the flexible LARK wristband, and set the alarm. The wristband will wake you with a gentle vibration without disturbing anyone else in the room. It even works if your "i" device is turned off. LARK also functions as a personal sleep coach. The wristband's sensor can measure and analyze your sleep patterns. A free seven-day sleep assessment is included with purchase, which uncovers your specific sleep type and creates a personalized recommendation report for better sleep. Available for $99 at Apple stores and online. An ongoing, in-depth "sleep coaching" package also is available for $159, including the LARK device.
