Sleep Number’s new smart bed prevents snoring, preheats mattress for you
Sleeping on a bed of technology.
There are few things more satisfying than getting under sheets on a cold winter day and feeling the warmth envelop your body. But that relief can easily be ruined by cold feet—those pesky extremities that always seems to take more time to thaw out.
Sleep Number, the folks who have been using tech to create personalized mattresses, has announced a solution at this year’s CES. The company’s new 360 Smart Bed has feet-warming technology built in.
“Did you know that many of us fall asleep faster if your feet are gently warmed?” the bed tells us in a video posted by Sleep Number. “I’ll know what time you like to come to bed, and pre-warm your side of the bed.”
The app-enabled smart bed comes with a number of other features for ensuring a good night’s rest for you and your partner, including:
- Self-adjusting comfort: The company’s “ResponsiveAir technology” adjusts the bed’s comfort in real time via two air chambers inside the mattress—contouring to each partner’s side, back, or stomach sleeper profile.
- Snore detection and adjustment: If someone is snoring on their back, the base automatically raises the snorer’s head seven degrees to help temporarily relieve the symptoms of common, mild snoring in otherwise healthy adults.
- Smart alarm feature: Sleep Number claims its SleepIQ technology knows when people would like to wake up. For example, an alarm will sound when they are in their lightest stage of sleep during their desired wake-up time window.
The tech-filled bed is powered by the SleepIQ biometric sleep-tracking app. It will be released in the first half of 2017, and priced “similar to Sleep Number’s current mattresses and adjustable bases.”
