The band also has the anti-sleep mode that will let you know and wake you up if you are sleeping outside of the regular time zone of sleep. This mode alerts you of concentration loss or dozing while driving or working at night. The smartband will vibrate whenever you receive a notification on your phone and the band is connected to it.
