Sleep, it’s one of those things that we all likely want more of, and wish that what we did get was better quality. For some of us getting more sleep may be difficult to achieve so it can be important to improve what little we do get.
Nokia Health agrees and has just announced the Nokia Sleep, a smart Sleep tracker and home automation pad. The Nokia Sleep is a Wi-Fi enabled sleep tracker that slips under your mattress to track your sleep patterns as well as providing an IFTTT trigger to help automate your life.
Nokia Health bought out the Withings brand of connected health products that included premium devices such as connected scales, blood pressure monitors, activity trackers and even a bedside sleep monitor.
The Nokia Sleep provides Sleep cycle analysis including sleep duration and interruptions, Heart rate, light, deep and rapid-eye-movement phases and snoring tracking. Via the Nokia Health Mate app, you can track your nightly progress with a nightly ‘sleep score’ letting you monitor your daily sleep.
All data is synced back to the Nokia Health cloud and we’ve asked the team behind the sleep if they will be supporting Google Fit storage at launch or into the future. Considering the Health Mate app already supports Google Fit there’s a good chance it may one day.
For those wanting to improve on their sleep, the Health Mate app will include an 8-week sleep program developed in consultation with sleep experts from Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine Clinic. If you’re looking to improve your sleep this may just help. You can read more about the program here.
As for the home automation side you can connect your Nokia Sleep to IFTTT to trigger anything — When you get into or out of bed, using IFTTT maker you can set some pretty cool automation such as turning off the bedside lamp a few minutes after you get into bed. We’ve asked about direct Google Assistant integration and will let you know if we hear anything.
For couples who both want to monitor their sleep, it looks like you will need two devices, which kind of makes sense.
There are no details on Australian pricing or availability as yet but we’re expecting the Nokia Sleep to launch in the first half of this year. The US pricing will be $99 meaning it should hopefully retail here for around $150 AUD. With Nokia already retailing in several Australia stores there’s a good chance we’ll see this device launch in Australia.
