Beautyrest Sleeptracker Review
Everyone needs sleep. It’s essential to our overall health, and the importance of it can never be stressed enough. While we may think we are getting enough, there are times our body indicates otherwise. I don’t know about you, but there have been plenty of occasions in my life where I’ve been physically present but not mentally due to poor quality and/or lack of sleep (HELLO, is anybody home?!?).
What killed me were the nights I’d go to bed early, sleep for 7 or 8 hours, and still wake up tired – With one question, WHY? Inspired by constant fatigue, I set out to find answers and started off with purchasing the Beautyrest Sleeptracker.
What is the Beautyrest Sleeptracker?
The Beautyrest Sleeptracker is an easy way to find out how you sleep. One of my favorite attributes (unlike most sleep trackers), Beautyrest is placed underneath your mattress! Highly accurate sensors measure your heart rate, breathing rate, and monitors your sleep cycles. It also provides a personalized sleep coach with helpful tips for better sleep!
Beautyrest is made up of two sensors, one for each side of the bed, and a processing box. Set-up and self monitoring is easy by downloading the app on your Android/iOs system. The sensors can automatically recognize when you’re sleeping, so there’s no need to press “start or stop”. The customizable settings allows you to change settings and add features such as an alarm, or white noise. Checking your results is as easy as waking up with your normal routine. The app automatically updates a few minutes later. You can also sync the tracker to the Amazon Echo, and Alexa will give you “the sleep low down”.
I love it! The device is so insightful and has helped me learn a few things about my sleep patterns. By tracking my sleep, I was able to see what daily habits were affecting my sleep (caffeine, alcohol, exercise, sleeping in bed with and without my boyfriend, ECT.) and I’ve been able to make great improvements to wake up feeling refreshed.
Here’s a glimpse of how the app works:
For anyone looking to improve their sleep, I highly recommend this product. A little bit of sleep knowledge can go a long way. So here’s a toast to a smart bed and better sleep!
