Smart Nora Review - UPDATED Nov. 2017
The main problem with many snoring aids out there is that even if they do solve snoring, they still do not allow you to get a good night’s sleep because they are rather uncomfortable to wear. On the other hand, sleeping pillows are among the most comfortable snoring aids, but they are not always effective. Smart Nora uses advanced technology to turn your favorite, comfiest pillow into an amazing anti-snoring solution, allowing you to sleep comfortably and snore-free. If you are intrigued by the concept of this innovative anti-snoring device, keep reading this detailed Smart Nora review.
What Is Smart Nora?
Smart Nora is an anti-snoring pillow system. Its two main elements include a pillow insert that goes into your pillowcase and a Pebble equipped with a microphone that sits on your nightstand or can be mounted onto a wall, with the optimal distance from your head being 4 inches. When you go to sleep, the Pebble monitors the loudness of your snoring. Once the snoring gets close to the level at which it is likely to awaken your partner, the pillow insert is activated via Bluetooth.
The pillow insert inflates and deflates slowly, gently stimulating the muscles in your upper throat, which allows for easier, steady breathing, with minimal or zero snoring. The movements are so slight, there is no chance they can interrupt your sleep.
The pillow insert stretches from one end of the pillowcase to the other. This allows you to place your head on any part of the pillow and sleep in any position, without diminishing the effects of Smart Nora.
Depending on the presence of noises in your sleeping environment, you can choose between 5 levels of Smart Nora’s sensitivity. The levels include ultimate, high, normal, low, and very low sensitivity. The ultimate level is designed for perfectly quiet bedrooms. At this level, the device is activated by the quietest of snores. If you are used to sleeping with background music or other noises, you should use lower levels of sensitivity.
How Is It Different?
Based on the information presented in the previous section of this Smart Nora review, it would not be wrong to say that Smart Nora is completely different from other snoring aids on the market. It employs unique technology that does not include jaw or tongue adjustments or other uncomfortable solutions. It is an absolutely non-intrusive anti-snoring device that detects and gently interrupts snoring by subtle movements, which is not something we have seen before.
What is maybe the greatest advantage of Smart Nora is that it does not require you to change your sleeping habits in any way. You can sleep in any position, listen to relaxing sounds, and move around and the device will still be able to stop the snoring.
Thousands of users have tested the device so far, with excellent results. Based on our experiments, the study conducted by the manufacturer, the results of which are available on the official website, and the user reviews available online, this is one of the most comfortable, convenient, and efficient solutions available on the market.
Still, no device is flawless and the same goes for Smart Nora. The only problem we identified while testing the device is related to adjusting its sensitivity. It may take a while to find the right settings so it is activated by your snoring, not the ambient noise. However, it should not take more than a couple of attempts to identify the optimal sensitivity level and if you sleep in complete silence, you can get the settings right at once.
The price of Smart Nora is $299, which may seem a bit expensive. However, considering the quality of the product, as well as how much money many snorers spend on ineffective anti-snoring solutions before finally stumbling upon the right one, the price is actually not that steep. It is also important to know that even if it does not work for you for some reason, you are not sending your money down the drain. The product comes with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so you get a whole month to test it. If you are not satisfied, just return it and get your money back. Smart Nora also comes with a 1-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects.
