CES 2017: Sleep Number Debuts ‘Self Adjusting’ 360 Smart Bed
Select Comfort's new bed, Sleep Number 360 smart bed, can assess its user's sleeping patterns throughout the night and does something about it like changing position, warming the foot of the bed and waking up in the morning.
The smart bed debuted in the most-awaited CES 2017, the electronics and consumer technology trade show in Las Vegas. In fact, it won a "Best of Innovation" honor in home appliances in the event, Star Tribune reports.
For the first time in the show's 50 years, it has a sleep technology marketplace showcasing gadgets designed to promote restful sleep, prevent disturbed sleep patterns and silent alarms to gently wake the user.
The company is gearing toward the emergence of sleep science as an area of health research. The bed, which uses Sleep Number's SleepIQ technology, has four features. First, the bed can self-adjust throughout the night depending on the user's sleep movements. If the user is snoring, the bed will adjust him or her to prevent or lessen snoring.
The bed also comes with foot-warming technology and it knows the user's bedtime routing through the SleepIQ app. Lastly, the bed can gently wake the user up in the morning, Macrumors reports.
Apart from these features, SleepIQ, the bed's app, can also connect the bed to external services and combine this data to let the user know how fitness is impacting his or her sleep habits. For the bed's pricing, the company hasn't released an official price yet. However, it said that it would be priced similarly to their current mattresses that cost between $800 and $7,099 for queen sizes.
Snoring During Sleep: What It Means?
According to the National Sleep Foundation, snoring is described as noisy breathing during sleep. It is a common problem affecting all ages and both genders. In fact, about 90 million American adults are affected by this sleeping problem.
Snoring becomes serious since it can cause sleeping problems and disrupted sleep that may affect daytime function. The two most common health effects linked to snoring are daytime dysfunction and heart disease.
