    Not worth it

    We bought this at an Apple store in Roseville. The packaging said it would work with two different sleepers. We specifically asked the Apple sales person if this would work for two people and he said it would. The first night we got it home we got it to work. But it soon locked out one of us. I called Apple support on 9/13 and was offered a series of possible fixes but none was a consistent fix. I looked on the FAQ on the Bedditbsite tonight and found them now claiming (in spite of the packaging, the advice I got in store and from Apple care) that in offer to have the product work for two sleepers you need two sensors. I feel I was ripped off.

    Nice app, but the device failed

    The Beddit app was actually very Nice as long as the Device worked (1 year), but when the Movement channel dont give any data if the Device became useless. Apple do not have any support on this Device (before the takeover).

    Completely unreliable device with nice customer service - buyer beware!

    I purchased the beddit 3 in December last year. The first device worked as advertised for a few months and then the heart rate monitor began its slow decline. Over the course of 2 weeks it went from recording the entire evening’s sleep range to intermittent failure to no heart rate recording at all. I contacted customer service and they sent me a new one within a couple of weeks. Great! Except that the replacement worked as advertised for a few months and then the same hardware failure occurred in the heart rate monitor. Another communication with customer service and another replacement sent out at no charge (though this time it took over a month). I have now had the third device for a few weeks and gaps are starting to appear in the heart rate monitor once again. I have followed all instructions for installation and setup and they are clearly used to device failures as the customer service person I have been communicating with for the last year has never hesitated to immediately put in a request to ship me a new device. And they have never attempted to troubleshoot the device or question my setup and usage. And each time I offer to ship back the malfunctioning device they decline. I can only surmise they feel they know the problems with the hardware and don’t feel they can learn anything from another device failure. I am hopeful that they will solve these problems at some time but that time is definitely not the present. You may get lucky and get a device that works, and if you do, congratulations! But as a nightly user for the last 9 months I could never recommend anyone spend their money on the beddit 3.

    Best non-intrusive sleep tracking device that money can buy!

    Why it's the best:
    -- Nothing to wear, the tracker rests below the fitted sheet on the mattress
    -- Tracks vitals like heart rate and respiration rate with great accuracy
    -- Uses those vitals in addition to your presence, movement - more data points = more accuracy
    -- Tells you how long it took you to sleep, how much you snored and were restless, overall efficiency
    -- Also monitors room temperature and humidity, so you can see how it impacts you
    -- Backed by science, read their whitepapers and studies, so impressive (geek/nerd alert!)
    -- Excellent app interface, creates graphs and trends allowing you to analyze your results and what they mean
    -- Regularly gives relevant tips to help you improve your sleep and health
    -- Very responsive support team to help you with any problems or issues you may be facing
    -- Easy to install, maintain, remove and reinstall

    Other thoughts:
    I researched many sleep and fitness trackers before finalizing on Beddit, and now, having used it for over two years, I am very happy with it. This is a near-medical grade, specialized sleep tracking device which provides advanced statistics and tracks sleep using advanced algorithms which is much more accurate and reliable than traditional, run-of-the-mill fitness tracker that tries to do everything by using an accelerometer that tracks your movement. If you research the founders and the company, you'd know that they were first planning to create "smart beds" for hospitals to help doctors! I have personally verified their data accuracy by comparing it to Polar H7 chest strap (very accurate) and apple watch.

    My over 2 year history with Beddit:
    -- Purchased my first beddit (v1.0) on September 3, 2015
    -- Using my latest beddit v3.0 (the product listed here) since April 26, 2017

    Worst Product I have bought. Do not waste your money

    After two days it worked, and then stopped. Woeful readings! Not accurate. When out of bed did not recognise my return back to bed. Heart monitor ... what heart monitor. Rubbish! The app looks great that is all that looks good. The sensors are inadequate. Nothing advertised works.

    This is the worst technology launched in ten years. Jobs would rolll in his grave if this product ever renamed.

    This is fake equipment and we are product testing a fake good. This should be removed from sale. A disgrace. I want my money back. Stick to Under Armour. Their product works.

    Stopped working.

    At first it was ok, although I had trouble learning to interpret the charts. Then the problems started. It recorded me out of bed far longer than I actually was. I tried moving the sensor strip quite a few times without any effect. Then it got worse. It started to record my heart beat erratically even while it was recording my sleep state. Some nights I had no heart beat at all and others it beat for only a few minutes. The sleep state recording then became erratic showing a tiny amount of sleep, just above the bottom line, then showing such deep sleep that it was off the charts by at least double the max it could display. I tried to find a number to call but couldn't and just stopped using it. Today, about a month later I called Apple chat and got Beddit's support email address. (There was no one to talk to.) I had already had hassles with another company's support and was feeling bad, so figured I couldn't feel worse by adding another consumer support call. Now I am waiting for a reply. It did work for a while and I am willing to try again if they replace/fix it. If they do, I will modify this review. BTW I believe Apple owns Beddit.

    Very polished, but lacks depth and accuratesse

    The Beddit3 is a very non-intrusive sleep monitor. You don't feel the strip you are sleeping on at all. The app where the tracked data can be analysed looks polished and is easy to understand and use, but the amount of data is a bit of let down:
    Why track every heartbeat during your sleep and then only give an average?
    Why track every breath during your sleep and then only give a minute average? If you can track breaths, you should be able to track breathing stops as well, which would make the beddit invaluable for apnea diagnosis.
    Why track your snoring and show it as little meaningless red dots? Where's the loudness indicator?

    I returned the Beddit because it didn't notice I was out of bed and couldn't notice if I was awake or not. It also had very infrequent heartbeat trackings. This meant I couldn't take any measuring seriously. From the reviews I saw, it's a bit of a hit or miss whether it will work for you or not.

    What exactly is this supposed to do?!?!

    In short this is a piece of junk - Beddit seems to base its "sleep score" on how long you lie in bed - I could be up all night lying in bed and still get a score of 95%... the "insights" are useless... "try getting a good night's sleep to feel refreshed" sort of stuff...

    Also, if you have two beds ( a vacation home for example) you have to re-pair with your phone each time (no auto discover) which is annoying.

    Quite good but needs some development

    The sleep monitor does work, but a couple of things annoy me.

    Firstly keeping the monitor in place on my mattress doesn't work very well. Maybe a fitted sheet would hold it down better, but I have flat sheets and the monitor doesn't stay put all night. If I move around a lot at night the monitor is quite often bunched up under me in the morning ... that surely doesn't help with good sleep!

    Secondly, it seems that if I spend 7 hours in bed I get a good sleep score, regardless of how many times I've woken up or had restless sleep through the night. I didn't need to spend a lot of money to tell me that spending longer in bed is better!! I now ignore the sleep score and look at the graph of how I slept. The sleep score impacts on any tags applied though - so, because I often spend longer in bed because I've had a bad night, some of the tags that I've applied to describe why I had a bad night have positive values attributed to them!

    In the month that I've been using beddit I haven't had a night where I've woken up feeling like I had a really good night's sleep, so I haven't been able to see the difference from a normal night, but the data is interesting. I'm tempted to swap it over to my husband's side of the bed soon to prove he snores!!!

    Almost right

    Indeed I'm very please with the device (hardware). Easy to install and it works in automatic (on when going to bed by itself and off when stepping out of bed) and the data seems to be accurate (from what I think I know) BUT THE APP GAVE ME PAUSE.

    Here's why:

    1. The app is badly translated - I get parts in French and others in English
    2. The big circle on the main screen is so big that you always have to scroll down to read correctly the other data.
    3. There are 2 circles: I get the orange, but have no idea what the green one is
    4. If you've setup your app NOT to start automatically, then you have to manually start it when you go to bed and that's fine, and when you do it displays the alarms time, but when in automatic and you go to bed, it only toggles a ON/OFF display and is not showing the same alarm window -- thus no consistency.
    5. They have a nice feature to wake you up up to 30 min before your alarm (they decide when is the best moment to wake you), but you cannot chose what day of the week to set up your alarm. So if you tell it to wake you at 7h30, then you'll be awaken around that time on weekends too.

    So yes, data looks good, but I felt this app is not polished enough and this unfortunately raises a doubt as to the quality of the data also. In my view those were so easy to fix, but yet they either got lazy or lacked the time, and both are not good reason and dont reflect good on the quality of the hole product. Still wondering if I'll keep it -- I'm giving it a week.

    better sleep brings better health

    Excellent. I have been using beddit for almost a year, it stopped pairing when I acquired an iPhone 7. They have an excellent service, I was sent immediately the new beddit 3. Though I liked the previous version, this new one is totally upgraded, easy to install and the app is very friendly and professional. I think we all need one to improve our sleeping habits and as consequence boost our energy. I could improve my Rem sleep. I recognized the importance of a better quality sleep, as we spend about a third of our life sleeping.

    Beddit app provides my first reading in the morning

    The best two things with Beddit are that it monitors the heart rate unobtrusively and tries to estimate the true sleeping time. The heart rate seems to be rather accurate and indicates rather reliably the quality of sleep. It would be good to be able to delete incomplete days from the history, since they confuse the overall picture. Sometimes monitoring gets interrupted for unknown reasons, but it happens not often. The warranty service of Beddit worked very well, when the bluetooth connection went dead. When the new app version recently called for a new Beddit model, the company sent it for free. Great. The whole package is recommendable.

    Vague instructions

    Had device 1 full week. Thus far, it won't work automatically despite my following instructions to the letter. Biggest problem is getting Notes/Tags to work. Beddit supplies a video that "explains" the process, but their advice doesn't seem to apply to mine.
    DON'T buy this if you've only an iPad. To date, theres NO app in the store that will work. I worked with an Apple Lvl 2 supervisor who couldn't find it.
    Like that 4K LG monitor Apple sold, this product appears to be something they should have avoided.

    Beddit - Great

    Beddit3 is not only an improvement oven the previous unit, but made by a company that stands behind its products and customer service. My previous unit was a replacement for one that failed some time ago. The company made sure that I was sent a new unit in the return mail. That's awesome service. My current Beddit 3 was sent free when the company ceased support for Beddit 2. What a pleasant surprise to learn of this no-cost upgrade from the company directly. I have been using the Beddit 3 for about a month, and find it wonderfully responsive to my sleep cycles. I am a very satisfied customer that strongly recommends Beddit 3 and has first-hand experience with this company to assure you of trouble-free operation and service.

    Accurate, but disables AirPods

    If you're like me and listen to podcasts while laying in bed, you'll be disappointed. Beddit disables any Bluetooth headphones (including AirPods). This is a bit of a deal-breaker.

    The information design here is nice, although not nearly enough is made of the breathing analysis. In comparing Beddit to AutoSleep - the fantastic Apple Watch sleep tracker - I found only minor discrepancies between the two. Beddit monitors your breathing, which AutoSleep doesn't track, yet Beddit only gives this a general overview instead of in-depth data charting. Where Beddit really shines is its software. Being able to note & tag daily activities really helps you discover patterns in what may be helping or hindering your sleep. I'd like to see this be a bit more automated, but the industry is slow on the uptake here.

    Overall pretty good. But the headphone thing is a nonstarter, unfortunately.

    Perfect sleep tracking into health

    I've had zero issues with this device since I got it last year. It works perfectly for me, and even better, all the data gets pushed into the Health app so other apps can use it!

    One of the best sleep trackers

    Great sleep tracker!
    You don't need to wear anything, just go to sleep.
    Afters several first nights with manually turning sleep tracking on and off it will start working in automatic mode so all you need to do it put iPhone on charge and go to sleep, the app will start tracking sleep automatically.
    I'm one of original backers of this product and still using it, now their last 3rd model.

    Great Sleep Device and App

    I have been using the Beddit Sleep monitor now for about 5 months. It was easy to install and setup so that it works properly with my sleep position. It provides some very valuable data about your sleep and how deep of sleep you are able to get. I have even used the data to share it with my doctor so he knows how my sleep quality has been over the last several months.

    The only thing I wish I was able to do was to export or print the data to make it easier to work with and share to medical providers.

    Worked fine then stopped support won't reply

    This tracker worked great for 2 months then slowly stopped tracking my heart rate and then won't track when I'm awake or asleep as accurate as before. I've tried to get into contact with beddit with no reply. I am furious with a dud product and not even a acknowledgement from support.
