Misfit Unveils 'Beddit' Smart Bed System for Sleep Monitoring

Thursday July 10, 2014 10:00 AM PDT by Juli Clover
Misfit, the company behind the sleek Shine activity monitor, today unveiled its newest product, the Misfit Beddit Sleep System. Using a built-in sleep sensor that is described as "the world's thinnest," the Beddit monitors sleep cycles and sleep quality through heart rate, respiration, movement, snoring, and sound.

The "paper thin" Beddit sensor is designed to be placed under on a user's mattress, just under the sheets. It displays collects data on sleep habits, measuring physiological signals and wirelessly transmitting them to a smartphone. The accompanying Misfit app then uses the data to draw insights on sleep habits, which are shared with the user.

"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's sleep tracking capabilities are designed to work alongside the Shine's movement tracking abilities (and its own less advanced sleep tracking), with the combination of both apps offering a "comprehensive solution for 24/5 wellness monitoring."

Beddit first appeared in an Indiegogo campaign back in 2013, which raised more than $500,000, but now the company has partnered up with Misfit.

The Beddit Sleep Monitor can be purchased from the Misfit website for $149.99.

Are sleep monitors accurate on memory foam mattresses?


The original Indiegogo campaign answered a lot of questions like that -- it says it is compatible with memory foam mattresses.

While normally I'd say this might be tech for techs sake, this might come in handy for people who have sleeping issues -- a good place to start in learning how their sleep is not as it should be.

I always sleep completely soundly every night, after drinking my night time cocoa that my friendly housemate prepares for me each evening.

This stupid sensor is completely inaccurate, according to its report I only had 30 minutes of calm sleep and then 'was repeatedly pounding the mattress for the next hour'.

Luckily for me my housemate has offered to take it back to the Apple Store for me so I can get a full refund.

I wonder if you can install one sensor for each side of the bed so two people can get separate readings.

Seems an unfortunate name. Grindr for Reddit users, or some such.
