Tracking your sleep without wearing a tracker: Beddit

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, February 3, 2015

Tracking your sleep with nothing to wear.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      There are lots of fitness and health tracking bands on the market that also give you information on the length and sometimes quality of your sleep.    Accuracy and comfort though can vary.  A company called Beddit has developed a solution that doesn’t require you to wear anything.   Come on, get your mind out of the gutter.   It is a sensor pad that is placed on your mattress.   CEO and Co-founder Lasse Leppakorpi…

“The sensor itself is very thin tape.   And once you have it attached to your mattress you just plug it in, it has a power supply, then you don’t need to recharge.  And then you just forget it.   After that it connects with your mobile device using Bluetooth and sends the data to a mobile application that makes the analysis.”

There are few things more important that sleep when it comes to your health and weight control.   Beddit is priced at about a hundred thirty dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
