Samsung introduces SleepSense smart sleep tracker

Samsung has announced SleepSense, a tracker that lets you monitor and manage your sleep. It is a small sensor in the form of a flat disk that tracks your sleep by placing it under a bed’s mattress, providing contact-less monitoring of a person’s heart and respiratory rate including movements during sleep.

Since it is a IoT device, it can be connected to other Samsung appliances as well as third party IoT devices for creating a better environment for a better sleep.

It can also be connected to other devices in your home such as thermostats, security cameras, and lightbulbs using Samsung SmartThings app. Once connected, it can automatically turn off the television and even adjust the heating or air conditioning for a perfect sleep environment.  It will also offer expert recommendations on how to improve your sleep through a mobile app.

The app will offer SleepSense’s daily sleep scores and reports that are calculated based on seven elements; total sleep time, sleep efficiency, time it took to fall asleep, number of times you woke up, number of times you got out of bed, percentage of time in REM (rapid eye movement) and percentage of time in deep sleep.

SleepSense delivers an accuracy of up to 97%, said the company.

It will be available first in Korea and other global markets later this year, but no details about the pricing yet.
