Nokia Sleep announced at CES

The sleep sensor is placed under the mattress from where it can track sleep cycles, and return back results to the Nokia Health Mate app.

Nokia Sleep announced at CES

Nokia Health, which was created as a result of the company's acquisition of Withings, used this year's CES to announce its new product – Nokia Sleep.

As its name says, the device is used to track and help users improve their sleep. It builds on the Withings Aura product and comes in the form of a sensor-laden sheet that is designed to be placed under the mattress. From there, Nokia Sleep can track your sleep cycles — such as light sleep, deep sleep and REM phases — as well as snoring; and report back results through the Nokia Health Mate app. For what it matters, those results are beamed back to the phone — central server actually — via WiFi, rather than Bluetooth.

The best part, however, is the included integration with the IFTTT service, letting users pair Nokia Sleep with other smart devices in the house. For instance, you can set an IFTTT rule to switch on the lights and raise the temperature when you wake up, which is pretty cool.

Also worth noting is Amazon Alexa integration which is now available in beta; it works with an array of Nokia Health devices, not just Nokia Sleep.

Nokia's sleep-tracking product is expected to ship at some point during the first quarter for $100.

The company has also unveiled a rose gold version of the Nokia Steel HR smartwatch, which will be released next month with a price tag between $180 and $250 with a silicone or leather band.
