Designed for today’s connected lifestyles, the “it bed” is adjustable on
each side and packed full of technology that helps consumers sleep
better, and was the recipient of four technology and innovation awards
at CES® 2016. And all these benefits come at great value –
“Your phone is smart, your TV is connected and your car has integrated
apps; now it’s time technology helped people sleep better. We are
redefining what people should expect from their bed,” said
Sleep Number has a strong track record of bringing to market innovations that disrupt the mattress industry. Contrasting sharply with conventional, one-size-fits-all mattresses, the “it bed” features smart technology to improve sleep quality:
- Adjustable comfort – Unlike ordinary static mattresses, the bed’s foam-filled air chambers adjust to each individual’s idea of comfort and are controlled with a smartphone app. The bed contours to the neck, shoulders, back, and hips, cushioning and supporting the entire body for improved spinal alignment.
- Sleep tracking – Integrated within the bed’s adjustable comfort are biometric sensors that track sleep. SleepIQ® technology continuously gathers hundreds of readings per second, monitoring sleep-critical variables (heart rate, motion and breathing), and a proprietary algorithm delivers a personal SleepIQ® score each night, which indicates sleep quality.
Connectivity – Through the SleepIQ®
app, the “it bed” connects with leading health, fitness and
sleep environment apps – including
Fitbit®, Nest Learning Thermostat™, MapMyRun™ and Withings Health Mate™ – to show a holistic view of how lifestyle choices may affect sleep.
Over time, SleepIQ technology learns each person’s comfort preferences, understands how physical activity and sleep environment affects their sleep quality, and offers personalized insights for a better night’s sleep.
“Not all sleep is created equal,” said
The “it bed” by Sleep Number can be purchased at www.itbed.com, with doorstep delivery in five business days in a range of sizes:
