What is Somnox Sense?

With the Somnox App, you can change the breathing settings of Somnox 1. You can select the breathing pace and breathing ratio yourself, but there is also a feature that can automatically measure your breathing pace, called Somnox Sense. Somnox 1 can sense your breathing movements and detect your breathing pace, after which Somnox 1 will guide you to a more calm and peaceful breathing pace.

Somnox Sense guides you to a calm breathing pace in two steps:

  1. Detection of your breathing pace (sensing)

  2. Adjustment of breathing pace of Somnox 1 to your breathing pace (synchronisation)

Somnox Sense cannot detect the ratio between the length of your inhale and exhale. Therefore, Somnox 1 can only adjust to your breathing pace, not to your breathing ratio.


Turn on Somnox Sense

For Somnox Sense, you need the Somnox App and an account.

  1. Click on Breath on the home screen.

  2. If this is the first time that you are installing your breathing pace, a screen will appear that asks for new settings. Click on Create new programme.

  3. Choose what you want to use Somnox 1 for (Sleep, Focus, Rest, or Relax).

  4. Let's choose Sleep for now.

  5. A screen appears in which you can adjust the breathing settings. Sweep the switch next to Somnox Sense to the right.

  6. Click on Set on Somnox. Somnox 1 will now automatically measure your breathing pace.

Important! For Somnox Sense to function, you need to hold Somnox 1 closely to your body. Somnox Sense needs to feel your breathing. If you are sleeping in a position that does not allow you to hold Somnox 1 closely to your body, we recommend you to not use Somnox Sense.


Frequently asked questions

Why should I set a start breathing pace?

The start breathing pace will be used as the initial breathing pace of Somnox 1. Your Somnox 1 will need one minute to detect your breathing pace. In the first minute, your Somnox 1 will breathe with the start breathing pace which you selected in the app.

Why should I set an end breathing pace?

The end breathing pace is the slow breathing pace that Somnox 1 will guide you towards. Based upon the detected breathing pace, Somnox 1 will guide you towards the end breathing pace that you selected in the app.

Does the ratio between the inhale and exhale change if Somnox Sense is turned on?

No, the ratio stays constant based on the setting you selected in the app.
