NEW YORK, November 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Beddit® is announcing two Black Friday deals through retailers including Brookstone.com and Amazon, offering special, limited-time pricing on Beddit Classic and a bundle dedicated to better sleep. Black Friday through Cyber Monday, the Beddit Classic sleep tracker will be available for $79 (a $119 value). A bundle of Beddit Classic and the NightCare No-Snore Pillow - the only pillow designed, clinically tested, and FDA cleared to help reduce snoring and mild sleep apnea - will sell for $99. Bought separately, they would cost $248.
Beddit makes any bed a smart bed by connecting Android and iOS devices with an ultra-thin sensor over Bluetooth. The sensor lies under the bed sheet, so there is nothing to wear and nothing to do but pair the sensor with the mobile device and go to sleep. Sleep tracking begins at bedtime, tracking heart rate, respiration, movement, snoring and sleep cycles. In the morning a personalized SleepScore™ indicates overall sleep quality, based on far more data - and more meaningful data - than can be provided by wrist-worn devices. Like the Beddit Classic, the NightCare No-Snore Pillow was developed with sleep research and clinical trials to improve sleep.
The new Beddit Apple Watch app extends Beddit's nighttime tracking with daytime alerts and information. When used with Apple Watch, the new Nap feature helps people address their sleep deficit, improving overall health and wellness. The Beddit Watch app uses new features in watchOS 2 to create an enhanced sleep and nap experience using the Digital Crown and Accelerometer on Apple Watch.
"A great day starts with a good night's sleep. This holiday season, anyone can give their loved ones a better start to every day, and thanks to this special pricing, it has never been easier to do," said Lasse Leppäkorpi, CEO of Beddit. "Further, Beddit makes it easy for the Chief Health Officer in each family to stay on top of everyone's sleep patterns through family.beddit.com."
Beddit collects and analyzes sleep related data with clinical accuracy. A patented design and proprietary manufacturing process results in an ultra-thin piezo sensor film technology that detects when a person is in the bed and sleeping without worn sensors, creating a completely ambient experience. Beddit's data is shared with Apple's Health App and Beddit Family, the companion web app for families, groups or teams, with in-depth historical data results.
Beddit Classic typically sells for $119, and can be found at Amazon, Apple Stores, apple.com, Brookstone, Bed Bath and Beyond or at beddit.com. The required iOS or Android apps are available in the App Store and Google Play Store at no charge. The NightCare No-Snore pillow is available separately for $129.
Beddit uses ballistocardiography, through an ultra-thin force-sensing strip, to measure nighttime activity without any wearable sensors. The science underpinning Beddit's sleep tracking and scoring system was developed in partnership with the Helsinki Sleep Clinic, VitalMed Research Center and professor Markku Partinen, MD, a leading authority on sleep research. Beddit's data accuracy and patented sleep tracking methodology have been clinically validated and published in peer-reviewed scientific articles. Beddit is available online, at Apple Stores, Apple.com, and other select retail and online outlets.
Beddit Ltd. is a fast-growing Finnish company founded in 2006 to offer sleep tracking solutions for both consumers and professionals. Beddit Inc, a fully owned US subsidiary, was incorporated in 2013. Sleep professionals and scientists in more than 20 countries have used Beddit products and Beddit's home system has been used in more than 100 countries.

NightCare's sleep science and technology created the first anti-snoring pillow to be patented and receive FDA 510(A) clearance. A consumer technology company with products that are based on sleep research and clinical trials, NightCare has produced an array of proprietary, patented and clinically tested sleep improvement products. The original snore-reducing pillow was designed by Roger Sramek to reduce snoring and mild sleep apnea. NightCare has continued to improve on the original design by incorporating new features for increased adjustability increasing the comfort and fit and providing improved postural alignment during sleep. NightCare SmartFoam™, a memory foam made with natural green tea, charcoal and seed oil for natural odor resistance was developed to be more comfortable and longer lasting.
