This sleep monitor can track two people at once through any mattress

Beautyrest® Sleeptracker® Monitor
Everyone knows the importance of a good night’s sleep, but not everyone gets one. Sleep sets the stage for both physical and mental performance throughout the next day. However, even when people think they are getting enough rest, our bodies tell another story. Beautyrest’s new Sleeptracker monitor gives users a new level of understanding and offers simple solutions.

Unlike other monitors, Sleeptracker is a non-invasive solution that lays beneath a mattress to make any bed a smart bed. Up to two individuals can have a broad range of factors tracked simultaneously. Since there is nothing making contact with the users, there is nothing to keep them awake.

“As one of the most trusted and recognizable bedding brands nationwide, we are proud to embrace the smart home movement with technology that provides a deeper understanding of how we sleep,” said Jim Gallman, Executive Vice President of Beautyrest Marketing. “The Beautyrest Sleeptracker monitor allows consumers to optimize their sleep habits and make improvements that can have dramatic implications for their overall quality of life.”

By pairing Sleeptracker with the matching app, the monitor provides an in-depth look at each user’s sleep cycle. They can check out their current behaviors, compare them to biometrical similar users, or access personalized tips for better performance the next day. Despite monitoring through a mattress, Sleeptracker is 90 percent accurate measuring both heart rate and breathing. This allows it to capture a minute-by-minute snapshot from light sleep to REM. The free companion app is available on both Google Play and the App Store.

Other features help set Sleeptracker apart from other monitors. If a user is prone to unexpected naps, the monitor can be set to automatically detect and monitor this data. It can also integrate with Amazon Echo. When it detects a light stage o sleep to wake users up, it can connect through Echo to any other connected device.

The Beautyrest Sleeptracker is currently available from Amazon for $199.

Sleep tracking is coming to Apple Watch, but monitoring your sleep is a bad idea

Wearable devices are about to have a moment, and manufacturers are hoping you'll sleep through it.

At the Worldwide Developers Conference 2020, Apple announced that it is adding "sleep-tracking" capabilities to its Apple Watch, the dominant wearable on the market. While it's surprising that Apple never pushed hard for sleep features before, there may be a good reason for the delay.

Does tracking your sleep actually help you sleep better? We asked an expert
Sleep Number It Bed review

Modern life simply isn't conducive to getting a good night's sleep. There's artificial light everywhere, we spend hours glued to screens, and it's not unusual to be checking work emails on your phone at night, last thing before you go to bed. We know that the potential health consequences of not getting enough sleep are severe, ranging from obesity and hypertension, to diabetes and heart disease. There's also the immediate impact on work performance, the risks of drowsy driving, and the higher incidence of accidents to contend with when we're tired.

It's no wonder sleep technology has been on the rise. There's no shortage of gadgets and apps that claim they can offer us a sound night's rest, or help us better understand whether we're getting the recommended full forty winks every night. There's a myriad of sleep tracking options out there, from fitness tracking bands to mats you put under your mattress, and even apps that run on your phone on the nightstand next to you.

Spy technology can ID people through walls based on their … Wi-Fi signals?

Through-wall person identification from candidate video footage using WiFi

The idea of using Wi-Fi signals to identify a person through a wall sounds like something out of a James Bond or Mission: Impossible movie. In fact, it’s a new piece of research coming out of the University of California, Santa Barbara. The work was conducted by a lab belonging to UC Santa Barbara professor Yasamin Mostofi. It demonstrates how a pair of Wi-Fi transceivers can be effectively used to reveal whether a person hidden behind a wall is the same individual who appears in a piece of video footage.
