REM-Fit Introduces SleepSmart Sleep Monitor and Smart Pillow at CES in Las Vegas

Jan 07, 2016, 10:04 ET from Protect-A-Bed

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- REM-Fit, the active lifestyle bedding brand from Protect-A-Bed, is continuing its expansion into sleep technology with the introduction of new products at CES designed to help consumers sleep smarter: a sleep monitor and pillow.

REM-Fit SleepSmart measures heart rate, respiratory rate and more.

The REM-Fit SleepSmart, powered by Sleepace, is a non-wearable sleep monitor that uses sensors to monitor heart rate, breathing and motion. An accompanying mobile app provides sleep analysis including how often and when a user tosses and turns at night, along with a SleepScore based on how efficiently the user slept.

The device is placed under a fitted sheet directly on the mattress. Featuring a thin design, the tracker is designed to go undetected while a user sleeps.

REM-Fit developed SleepSmart with Sleepace, a leading innovator in smart sleep solutions that transform people's lives by increasing their sleep quality.

"When we first entered the sleep technology industry last year with our REM-Fit Active sleep and activity tracker, we couldn't anticipate the level of enthusiasm we would receive," said Warrick Bell, director of product development for REM-Fit and Protect-A-Bed. "The Sleepace partnership allows us to utilize their technology to provide insights for users to get a better night's sleep."

Analyze sleep with the REM-Fit SmartPillow.

In addition to the SleepSmart sleep monitor, the REM-Fit SmartPillow helps consumers analyze their sleep patterns in an effort to get a better night's sleep. Features include:

  • SnoreAlarm – If a user snores, the pillow will gently vibrate to subtly encourage them to change sleeping position;
  • SmartWake – The pillow will detect alarm times set on a mobile device and help the user wake up at the appropriate time with subtle vibrations;
  • REM-Fit Audio – Internal speakers allow users to select one of the many pre-loaded "soundscapes" that provide white noise without disturbing their partner;
  • SnoreScore – Listening to ambient noise around it, the pillow will provide analytical data on when and how often a user snores.

REM-Fit Active users can also pair their sleep and activity tracker with the pillow to receive deeper analysis of their sleep using their daily SleepPoints score. 

According to Bell, proper sleep and recovery is a critical element in athletic performance. "You constantly read tips and tricks about how to get more sleep, especially at this time of year when everyone is focused on losing weight, increasing athletic performance and reaching new goals," Bell says. "You need good sleep to allow your body to repair itself. If you don't get enough sleep, you won't perform well. This technology allows consumers to sleep smarter to reach their fitness goals."
