Earlier this week, Apple received FCC approval with a new sleep monitor product that looked like an updated version of Beddit Sleep Monitor as it acquired 2017. Today, the updated Beddit Sleep Monitor 3.5 (replacement version 3.0) is now available through the Apple Store.
The new Beddit Sleep Monitor 3.5 is sold for $ 149.95 and is currently available in Apple Stores and sent to customers in a few days. Withings (formerly Nokia Health) has a similar product that sells for $ 99 and currently sells for $ 79.99.
The first review of Beddit Sleep Monitor because Apple bought the sleep tracking company contains a slight change in the design of the actual hardware and the iOS Sleep Manager Manager also has a new version. All comments about Android support are removed from the Beddit website as far as we can tell.
Bedred Sleep Monitor 3.5 is not a radical change from the previous 3.0 version. There is still a 2mm thin strip as you lie above your mattress and power via USB. It connects to an iPhone app to send sleep tracking data to the Beddit app and Apple Health App (with permission), and it is still announced that does not require a “portable” like Apple Watch – although Beddit has an Apple Watch app for to track naps.
The original Beddit iOS app on the existing Beddit Developer account has also been updated and rewritten as specifically version 3.0 of the machine’s sleep monitor. A new Beddit app has appeared under Apple’s developer account supporting the brand new 3.5 hardware.
Here is a technical specification of the 3.5 and 3.0 versions:
Probably the new hardware was already on its way when Apple bought Beddit last year. Apple certainly has bigger plans with Beddit and its sleeptrackers beyond selling a pillow that goes under your bed sheets to track sleep.
