Westin Hotels & Resorts has partnered with Lark Technologies to create a new Sleep Sensor Wearable-Lending programme. Available through the month of November 2014, guests at participating properties, including The Westin New York at Times Square, The Westin Singapore, The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi, The Westin Frankfurt, The Westin Cape Town, The Westin Sydney, The Westin Abu Dhabi and The Westin Palace Milan, can try the Lark Up Sleep Monitor, Silent Alarm Clock and Personal Sleep Coach during their stay. This wearable technology was developed to help users achieve optimal sleep through sleep pattern tracking and virtual coaching and is the perfect complement to the brand’s renowned Heavenly Bed.
Brian Povinelli, global brand leader, Westin Hotels & Resorts, said, “Partnering with Lark Technologies will allow Westin guests to achieve their best sleep through a series of personalised coaching tips rooted in science. This is a milestone and a great example of knowledge being power when it comes to promoting a foundational aspect of well-being: sleep.”
Julia Hu, founder, Lark Technologies, said, “Sleeping better, as a part of getting fitter and stressing less, has been a big focus of mine and the Lark Health Committee. Our world-class Health Committee has been working closely with our product team to design our product experiences, and we are now excited to be a part of the Westin Sleep Well campaign, so that guests have the opportunity to start the day off right, happier and healthier.”
Guests of the participating hotels can try the Lark Up Sleep Monitor, Silent Alarm Clock and Personal Sleep Coach:
The Lark Up combines a scientific sleep monitor with an expert-based app, which Lark says has significantly improved 70 per cent of users’ sleep within just one month. Lark’s scientific sleep monitor tracks millions of micro-movements during the night so users can review their sleep patterns in the morning and track improvement over time, tagging the factors that are affecting their sleep. Guests can see advanced data visualisations of their sleep patterns and receive expert explanations of the problem areas, easily tracking their progress over time.
