Get a better night’s rest with sleep tech – CES 2016

Video contribution by Xavier Smith

Having trouble falling asleep? Want to see how much REM sleep you get each night? Technology now lets you do all that, from tracking your sleep to finding out when your elderly parent is going to bed.

 

Improving marriages — Beddit’s contact-less snore tracker

Beddit’s under-the-bed contactless sensor tracks everything from heart rate to movement to snoring and sleep cycles. Each morning, a user can receive a Beddit SleepScore, showing you how you slept. A score in the green zone means you had a good night’s sleep.

The product is also compatible with the Apple watch. Beddit is available on Amazon, Apple, Brookstone, and other outlets for $149.99.

From Olympians to seniors — Emfit’s versatile sleep tracking technology

The Emfit QS is a contact free sleep tracker with Heart-Rate-Variablity that monitors REM, deep and light sleep throughout the night. The app details sleep quality, stress level, and progression of recovery each night as well as compiling 30 day long term trends.

Emfit’s product has attracted Olympic level customers who use the product to analyze their sleep after workouts.

“The first target market has been athletes for us,” Emfit co-founder and CEO Heikki Raisanen said. “They use it to analyze the effect of exercise after a hard exercise day and they can see how well they recovered during the night.”

The product is available for a retail price of $299.

Emfit has also developed a product that helps ensure the wellbeing of senior citizens. If a senior citizen is not in bed at a certain time of night – someone will be alerted. A similar alert would be sent if the product sensed that the user fell out of bed or left to go to the bathroom.

The Safebed product will hopefully be out in a couple months, according to Raisanen.

 

Putting a number on your ideal sleep — Sleep Number’s IQ tech and API connection

Two years ago Sleep Number started adding sleep tracking and biometric sensors to track movement, breathing, and heart rate during sleep with their sleep IQ tech. This allowed users to adjust the bed based on how they slept the night before.

This year, Sleep Number released their first non air-based bed since being founded in 1987 that will also allow users to connect to other wearable health devices with API.

The queen-sized bed will cost around $1,000. The bed can be shipped and set up in 15 minutes.
