Apple Acquires Beddit Sleep Monitoring System for an Undisclosed Amount
Beddit, known for its sleep tracking hardware and software, this week announced it has been acquired by Apple for an undisclosed sum.
Beddit markets a sleep monitor that slips beneath a user’s sheets to track movement, heart rate, and other biometric data during sleep sessions. Armed with force, capacitive touch, humidity and temperature sensors, the thin pad is capable of providing a complete overview of your sleep patterns. Owners who grant the accompanying iOS app access to iPhone’s microphone can also enable snoring detection.
Beddit also integrates with HealthKit for comprehensive health tracking and data viewing via Apple’s Health app and Apple Watch. Apple sells Beddit’s latest offering, the Beddit 3, through its online and brick-and-mortar retail stores for $150.
Apple has not issued any official statements about the acquisition.
