    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!!!

    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.
