Beddit automatically tracks your sleeping patterns, heart rate, breathing, snoring, movements and environment. In the morning, Beddit tells you how you slept and how to do it better.

Place Beddit ultra thin film sensor in your bed, under the sheet. No wearable sensors.

Beddit

Pros

  • Really easy to set up, just stick it on your bed
  • Bluetooth link works every time
  • Clean simple app

Cons

  • Limited data (wake/sleep, heart rate)
  • Sleep tips are a little random
  • The pro version looks a lot better but very expensive
