Review: Therabody SmartGoggles – Sleeping is believing

Soothe away the stress...

“The eyes are the window to your soul” William Shakespeare once said. You can tell a lot about someone if you examine their eyes. The eyes often convey how we are generally feeling inside. Our Peepers need looking after just like the rest of the body.

Traditionally, we would wear goggles to keep our eyes protected from harmful, foreign bodies, Therabody Smart Goggles have been developed for when you want to turn off and tune out from the rigmarole of life. These Smart Goggles will accompany you into a gentle slumber which will leave you feeling thoroughly refreshed and rested.

As part of Therabody’s comprehensive lineup of lifestyle and wellness solutions, these Smart Goggles seamlessly integrate cutting-edge technology to elevate your daily experience. Simply slide the elastic strap over your head, allowing it to rest gently on the bridge of your nose. Once positioned comfortably around your eyes, these goggles are ready to work their magic. A single long press of the On/Off button, conveniently located above the right eye, activates the device, granting access to a range of modalities including Smart Relax, Focus, and Sleep. On the left side, intuitive buttons provide easy control over vibration and heat intensity settings, allowing you to tailor your experience with three progressive levels.

The Path to Perfect Sleep: Navigating the Features of Therabody SmartGoggles

Navigating the array of features offered by Therabody SmartGoggles is akin to embarking on a journey towards the ultimate sleep experience. With customizable settings that cater to individual preferences, users have the freedom to tailor their sleep environment according to their unique needs and desires.

The intuitive interface of the Therabody app allows for seamless control over the goggles’ various functions, granting users the ability to adjust massage intensity, select preferred audio tracks, and monitor sleep metrics with ease. Whether you prefer a gentle massage paired with the soothing sounds of nature or crave a more invigorating sensory experience, Therabody SmartGoggles put the power to craft the perfect sleep environment right at your fingertips.

And with advanced biometric tracking capabilities, these goggles offer valuable insights into your sleep patterns, allowing you to gain a deeper understanding of your nightly rhythms and make informed adjustments to optimize your sleep quality. By harnessing the data provided by Therabody SmartGoggles, users can embark on a journey towards healthier sleep habits and a more fulfilling lifestyle.

Embracing Wellness Beyond Sleep: The Versatility of Therabody SmartGoggles

The inner surface material of the goggles is a luxuriously soft, padded PU leather fabric that provides good cushioning and comfort while in use. It’s therefore advisable to place the goggles on clean and dry skin. There is also a sensor embedded in this fabric that should be in contact with your cheek or temple when the goggles are properly worn. This measures your heart rate when in the Smart Relax Mode. The readings are conveniently displayed on the Therabody App on your linked iOS or Android device. The app is also home to TheraMind which is a multi-sensory sound therapy experience that has been exclusively developed to work with the Therabody SmartGoggles. Although the music is played through your linked device and not the goggles, the relaxing tones and vibes will holistically add to the overall sense of relaxation and wellbeing that you are sure to feel after each session.

Each of the modes are by default,  pre-programmed to run for 15 minutes although you can adjust this in the app if you wish. The massaging feature of these goggles helps to alleviate facial tension and offers a very tactile sensation around the peripheral edges of the eye sockets. This will be a welcome benefit, especially for those who work in a stressful environment whether at home or work. As the goggles are light and compact, they can fit easily into a bag, purse or case so you can treat your eyes to a cheeky massage during the day when you may want assistance to focus on a given task or sneak in a “power nap”. If you find yourself on endless business trips, these goggles are a must-have for long flights (as long as you’re not the pilot!) or for winding down after a hard day.
