Misfit, makers of Shine, is adding support for Beddit Sleep Monitor, which is widely recognized as the world’s thinnest sleep sensor that can seamlessly measure sleep cycles and quality using heart rate, respiration, movement and sound.
Beddit integrates with Misfit’s user interface via the Misfit app, and measures physiological signals automatically, transmitting the data to a smartphone via Bluetooth.Unlike other products on the market, Beddit is not a wearable; instead, this paper-thin device rests on the user’s mattress, under the sheets. It integrates with Misfit’s user interface via the Misfit app, and measures physiological signals automatically, transmitting the data to a smartphone via Bluetooth. Users in turn get accurate insights into their nightly sleep habits, viewing key statistics and visualizations on the app.
“Shine delivered on the important function of activity tracking, but we saw that sleep tracking was one of the most engaging features because Shine does it automatically, unlike other activity monitors,” said Sonny Vu, CEO and founder of Misfit. “With Beddit, we’re making our sleep tracking functionality even more robust. Not only are we able to measure more, but even less is required of the user – a frictionless experience.”
The Beddit Sleep Monitor is now available at the Misfit online store for $149.99.
Around 70 million people in the US alone suffer from chronic sleep problems, which are associated with health problems including diabetes, obesity, depression, heart attack, and stroke.
