We're not sleeping well. Off-late there's been an onslaught of sleep-guaranteeing tech including apps and beds that can prep your mind and body for the deepest slumber. Cheero, a California-based company known for its power packed external batteries, has come up with Sleepion, a three-in-one solution for people with sleep disorders. They've designed a crescent-shaped speaker system that has an in-built natural light and aroma emitting ceramic disc to stimulate your senses to help put you sleep quicker and better. It comes with 16 preset white noise options including streams, rain, wind and more that are proven to prep your mind for deep sleep. According to Cheero, 45-minutes is the optimum sound cycle so each track is programmed to switch off at the end of that time frame.

The device also comes with three sleep-friendly scents including geranium, lavender and hiroki. All you need to do is use three drops of one of those scents on a ceramic disc, which is a unique addition to this sleep-well device. It has thousands of microscopic holes on it to absorb the scent and it gently releases them in sync with the vibrations from the sound. So when the audio goes off at the end of one stimulating cycle, the aroma slowly fades. If your bad sleeping habit persists, you can choose to hit back to back cycles. Sleepion comes with a slap-on magnetic battery pack that can last up to 35 hours on a full charge.
