What is Somnox Sense?

With the Somnox app, you can change the breathing settings of Somnox 2. You can select the breathing rate and breathing ratio yourself, but there is also a feature, called Somnox Sense, that can automatically measure your breathing rate. Somnox 2 can sense your breathing movements and detect your breathing rate after which Somnox 2 will guide you to a more calm and peaceful breathing rate.

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

  1. Detection of your breathing rate (sensing)

  2. Adjustment of the breathing rate of Somnox 2 to your breathing rate (synchronization)

Somnox Sense cannot detect the ratio between the length of your inhale and exhale. Therefore, Somnox 2 can only adjust to your breathing rate, not to your breathing ratio.

How does Somnox 2 measure your breathing rate?

Somnox 2 can measure your breathing with high-quality movement sensors. These sensors can measure very small movements and, therefore, also your breathing.

Important! Hold Somnox 2 against your body. Do you breathe through your belly? Place Somnox 2 against your belly. Do you breathe through your chest? Place Somnox 2 a bit higher against your chest. In this way, Somnox 2 detects your breathing rate more accurately.

Frequently asked questions

Why should I set a start breathing rate?

The start breathing rate will be used as the initial breathing rate of Somnox 2. Your Somnox 2 will need one minute to detect your breathing rate. In the first minute, your Somnox 2 will breathe with the start breathing rate that you selected in the app.

Why should I set an end breathing rate?

The end breathing rate is the slow breathing rate that Somnox 2 will guide you toward. Based upon the detected breathing rate, Somnox 2 will guide you toward the end breathing rate 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.
