Amazfit claims that its ZenBuds TWS earbuds are so light and comfortable that they can be worn in bed all night. In fact, this is part of their use-case: to emit custom-designed audio that helps improve the user's sleep pattern. The brand has launched this product via Indiegogo, where they have now attracted just over US$1 million in backing.

The increasingly popular wearables OEM Huami has taken to launching products from its premier brand Amazfit on crowdfunding websites. The latest of these is the ZenBuds, which, according to their maker, have been designed with ergonomics that allow them to be worn while the user sleeps.

The buds may achieve this through "ultra-stretchy" silicon ear-tips that lead to exceptionally small, apparently unobstrusive TWS earbuds. They are rated for up to 12 hours of battery life, which may allow them to emit "curated sounds (including White Noise, Forest Sounds and Distant Stars) that trigger the sleep cycle" throughout the night.

The ZenBuds also support sleep tracking and analysis via Amazfit's app. The OEM also claims that they are also useful during the day, in that they can also generate sounds that promote "focus" during the day.

The crowdfunding campaign for these truly wireless accessories has now crossed the US$1 million mark, attracting over 12,000 backers in the process. Currently, Amazfit projects that units procured as a result will ship from September 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
