Bonjour The Smart Alarm Clock
If you’re looking for a clock that is more than just that, say hello to Bonjour, a smart alarm clock with Artificial Intelligence (AI) which practically doubles up as your personal assistant. Let’s take a quick look then, at how Bonjour can work for you and help smoothen your day from when you wake up.
Customised wake-up time – While your regular alarm will shout out to you at the time it has been set for, trust Bonjour to do things a little differently. Let us assume you have a meeting in the morning and naturally, being late is out of the question. Here is where Bonjour can help – it will map out your route and wake you up earlier than required, say in case there is a traffic snarl along the proposed route. This will ensure you’re not late for a meeting anymore! Conversely, should you want to set your wake-up time basis the weather conditions, this too can be made possible.
Intelligent alarm – The AI algorithms used here are such that the device can integrate with your schedule, and once you have your appointments keyed in, you can be rest assured that the alarm will not let you oversleep. Taking the utility up a notch, the alarm will remind you of your meetings and appointments hence ensuring that you are never late.
Activity planner – Given the options Bonjour has to integrate with other devices, it can also help you get and stay fit. How so? Simple, it can check your local weather and access weather forecasts which can help you plan your fitness schedule. So, for instance if the morning is going to bring with it some rain, you could go for your run a little later in the day. Bonjour can also be paired with devices such as Fitbit and Apple Health, so it can monitor your activity levels through the day – and just in case you’ve forgotten about how many steps you still need to walk, you can count on Bonjour to be rather vocal about it!
Sleep planner – Since the device can be paired with say for instance your Apple Watch, Bonjour can work out your optimal sleep schedule. It will factor in a regular sleep pattern and tell you when you should get to bed, thereby helping regulate your sleep time and bringing consistency into your routine. If you are looking to go a step further, it can also conduct a sleep analysis to make sure you get the sleep you need. To make it more fun, Bonjour can also help you get to sleep faster if you tune in to the in-built guided relaxation programme.
The AI built in to the device gives Bonjour a human voice and mannerisms, and not just that, it is kitted with Biometric Identification. This feature means that the device can offer you personalised information, and adapt its recommendations accordingly. Also, the more you speak, the more the device learns.
Go on, get yourself Bonjour and make the most of your day.
