Apple has unveiled its first Smart Mattress Sensor, after acquiring apps and sensor maker Beddit earlier this year.
The new $149 Beddit sensor which was recently released, makes use of a 2mm mat placed under a mattress to track individuals sleep.
It learns user’s sleep patterns and can even tell people the best and appropriate time for them to go to sleep and wake up.
What is Beddit?
Beddit is an app with a combination of a device that learns about the individuals sleep patterns and connects daily habits to their sleep in order to better help them get a better night rest.
The ultra-thin film sensor is placed on the individual’s mattress and is plugged into a regular low voltage USB power supply.
The sensor measures the presence of the person in the bed (sleep rhythm) and your movements (actigraphy) during the night and also the movements of your heart (heart rate) and also your breathing movements (breathing rhythm and snoring).
It then transfers this data to a special app via Bluetooth, where it is analyzed as a sleep report shown.
Beddit actually made its debut in 2014 with a new gadget that can transform any mattress into a smart bed capable of analyzing an individual’s sleep.
