Alongside making smartphones, Finnish company Nokia is also stepping into the healthcare market. The company is at CES 2018 showcasing their product called Nokia Sleep, which is an “advanced sensor” built into a mattress pad. The device tracks your sleep patterns and is WiFi connected. It also senses snoring patterns, and will send the data to Nokia’s Health Mate app where it is analyzed compounded into a “sleep score.”
There is also IFTTT integration, making it easier for people to set triggers to help aid in the sleeping process. For example, users can ask the service to dim the lights and turn the temperature down once you fall asleep, or even open the blinds when you wake up.
The Health Mate app now works with Alexa, meaning that users can ask the assistant to get an update on their health progress from the Health Mate app at any time.
The Nokia Sleep is the company’s first foray into sleep tracking, although they do sell the Nokia Go, formerly Withings Go, which is an activity tracker that tracks sleep. Withings also sold the Aura mattress pad, which did track sleeping habits, albeit pretty poorly, before the company got acquired by Nokia back in 2016.
According to Nokia, the Sleep is designed to be positioned on the side of the bed, at chest level, “so it is able to distinguish one’s movements and more importantly vital signs from the partner’s.”
The Nokia Sleep sensor will ship out to potential buyers in the first quarter of this year for an asking price of $99.95.
