Accurate device for consumers to measure sleep cycles?
#1
Anyone know of a good device that measures your time in sleep stages accurately that is economical for home use on a regular basis? I read something recently about at Neuroon which was a Kickstarter project that is out now. I also some evidence that the new Jawbone up might be fairly accurate but it doesn't use an EEG.

I use a fitbit, have been for a couple of years now. It also doesnt have an EEG... None of them do as far as I know. However, I find that mine is fairly accurate in the sense that if it shows I wasnt very restless, and had long periods of deep sleep, I usually feel great during the day and might even be able to go without my usual nanna nap in the afternoon. I started with a fitbit Flex, then moved onto a fitbit Charge (which is not being made anymore) which recently started coming apart. They replaced it with an Alta which is perfect. I also bought a Blaze which does lots more but its big and chunky and after a while I realised that it doesnt let go of bluetooth on your phone hence causing battery drain. I dont use it at all anymore. I'll see if I can find a screenie and post it to Imgur.

Seems I have to wait for another couple of posts before I can link to the screenshots.

Used the ResMed S+, it seems to be fairly accurate,but it is hard to be sure without using it in a real sleep study.
I am not a Medical professional and I don't play one on the internet.
