Consumer version of sleep tracking wearable Dreem launches today
To improve the waking life of millions suffering from sleep disorders, Rythm has announced the official launch of Dreem, a lightweight headband that acts on your brain to enhance time spent in Deep sleep.
Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality kip time can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. Deep sleep is particularly important as this is the stage where most of our body’s important healing mechanisms occur.
The wearable is the result of three years of research and development by a Paris based team of neuroscientists and machine learning experts. Dreem monitors brain activity directly through (EEG). This is the technology that is used by sleep scientists in a laboratory setting to analyze precise sleep patterns. The company says they are one of the first to bring this technology to consumers in an comfortable, accessible way.

The headband triggers sound through bone-conduction technology that is synchronized with your brain waves to improve the quality of your sleep. Enhancing time spent in Deep sleep has a range of benefits including memory consolidation, energy restoration, hormone release and preserve degeneration.

Beyond improving sleep, every morning users will be able to see their sleep patterns via the accompanying smartphone app and a sleep score that they can track over time. The app also allows you to set an alarm clock to a time when you want to rise. As Dreem monitors your brainwaves through the night and morning, it will wake you up during your light sleep cycle – the optional time so that you feel your best.
“Rythm started with one single idea—to monitor and influence brain activity based on auditory stimulation to enhance sleep quality,” said Hugo Mercier, CEO & Co-founder at Rythm.
“Now after our successful beta program, we have validated the science and learned from more than 500 users on what the headband can do. The launch of Dreem is a breakthrough moment and we are thrilled to get our product to consumers so they can get on the path to better sleep.”
There is an “early bird special” until July 15th. The early bird pricing will be $399, shipping included, instead of the normal price of $499. The wearable is available on dreem.com.
