    Bluky, awkward, unreliable

    There are other sleep sensors out there that are a fraction of the size, and far easier to use. This requires you to plug and unplug it to activate it - it's huge and occupies a very wide armband when you sleep as well.

    The other exercise trackers with sleep monitoring on the market are more functional, more attractive, easier to use and more comfortable. No reason to buy this one at all.

    Life Changing

    • Written by from Plymouth

    I've been using the LARK Un-alarm for the last two years, and it's effect on my health and wellbeing has been enormous.

    I started off as someone who could get about 5 hours, at best, a night and my studies and work were suffering, I had memory loss most of the time, and no attention span whatsoever.

    As the accompanying app actually coaches you to improve your sleep habits, and gives you real, tangible information on how sleep works, it's very easy to take on board every bit of information.

    The coaching, goals and reminders the system uses have gotten me, regularly, to 7 to 8 hours a night now, and I've seen a marked improvement in my immune system, memory and concentration.

    As for battery longevity, bluetooth tethering and wearability I've had some tiny blips along the way, but nothing that's prevented me using the product properly.

    I'd recommend it for literally anyone: you're not living if you're not getting good sleep.

    Half a trick pony....

    • Written by from CREWE

    I have to agree with Lee C....
    I had high hopes for the LARK.... purchased it from across the pond as I was so eager to try it out.....
    Extremely disappointed.... although the concept is exciting.... the lark dive bombed.... The battery lasts one night.... on the odd occasion it lasted less than that..... even after it had charged all day.... I did not see reason for the oversized dock.... It looked awkward with the iphone sitting in it and the cable spiralling from the back of the dock to the iphone.... looked untidy..... the wrist device was would be better suited with a sweatband with sewn in pocket rather than the cheap looking strap with loop sewn in... I was conscious I was wearing it all night... was not exactly comfortable.... a sweatband combination would delete the sharp edge of the strap on your skin....

    The vibrating motor is supposed to alternate it's pattern so it wakes you up.... that was noisy... so it could wake up your partner too....
    The online monitoring..... was basic... leads you into purchasing the enhanced online version... but from the initial experience of the LARK.... that stopped me from investigating the potential any further...
    It is a first generation product.... that said.... the Jawbone Up (1st generation) was better at waking you up... while it lasted.... My search continues for a device, that does what this promises....

    Intrested Products, awful realibilty

    • Written by from Redditch

    The is an interesting product, I originally used Wakemate however after my experience with Lark I am now happy with Wakemate again.

    I have had the lark system since 30/06/2012 and have been upload anything to the Lark servers, since they are USA based then can only respond when they are awake.

    Lark does now work in the UK as MyLark is down everyday day, for the entire day in the UK :(

    Great product

    • Written by from Leeds

    Purchased this in the Apple Store in Manchester. There is something so nice about not being woken up by an audible alarm. I feel so much better right away after waking up. The only negative I can say is that it still wakes my partner up in bed as the vibration can be felt through the mattress, if its touching it.

    The app is great. Ive only used it for a few nights but the sleep monitoring is cool and helpful. It highlights that while I aim to get 7-8 of sleep a night I wake up and average of 5 times per night, meaning i get closer to 6 hours. I am changing my habits to take this into account.

    The built quality is great.
