Introducing the Misfit Beddit Sleep System

We’re excited to announce that we’re launching the Misfit Beddit Sleep System and integrating with the Beddit Sleep Monitor, a result of a long term partnership between Misfit and Beddit.  Sleep tracking has become one of the most engaging features of Shine, and will now be an even larger part of our product offering.

Now you can get an accurate picture of your nightly sleep patterns without having to wear anything.  Using the world’s thinnest sleep sensor, the Misft Beddit Sleep System seamlessly measures your sleep cycles and quality using heart rate, respiration, movement, snoring, and sound.

The paper-thin device rests underneath your sheets, directly on your mattress. It measures physiological signals automatically, wirelessly transmitting the data to a smartphone, where you can view insights on the Misfit app.

Beddit measures:

  • Total sleep time
  • Sleep cycles; Deep and light sleep duration
  • Awakenings
  • Heart rate
  • Ambient sound, snoring

You’ll get stats and visualizations of your data for daily and weekly trends, giving you a fine grain resolution into your sleep.  Sooth yourself to sleep with a variety of custom, gentle sleep sounds and use the smart alarm to wake up in your lightest stage of sleep.

The Beddit Sleep Monitor is now available on our website for shipping next week.

Misfit for iOS 1.14 — Pebble, Meet Shine

The latest version of the Misfit app for iOS is now available in the App Store.  We’re excited to extend a very warm welcome to our new Pebble users with this latest app update—welcome to the Misfit family!

In addition to our Pebble integration, we’re also introducing a weekly sleep view, so you can get insights into your Zs over a 7-day period.

 

 

For Pebble Users:

  • Download the app from the iOS app store.
  • Open the app and sign up for an account.  Select Pebble when prompted to select device.
  • When prompted, tap the screen with your finger to link your Pebble smartwatch with the Misfit app.  If you are experiencing difficulty linking or syncing your Pebble, open the Pebble app first, then open the Misfit app.

Now you’re ready for a tour (also good to share with new Shine users!)—

Welcome home. The Today screen (white background) is your home—oh, the places you’ll go! Here you can see your points and how many minutes of activity you have left until you reach your goal. Tap in the middle of the circle (also known as the Activity Meter) to see your daily total steps, distance traveled, and calories burned.  Slide the Activity Graph up, via the small grey arrow, and see periods of activity over the course of the day.

Set a goal.  Head on over to the Menu in the upper left hand corner of the app and then select ‘My Goals’ to set a daily activity goal as well as goals for sleep and weight.  Make sure to sync your Shine or Pebble smartwatch after setting your activity or sleep goal.  Select the Menu button again to return to the Today screen.

Find friends.  Head on over to the Social Corner (the upper right hand corner) from the Today screen to set up your profile and add friends.  Let the healthy games begin!

Sleep on it.  The Sleep screen (purple background) shows your number of hours of light and deep sleep.  Sleep detection is automatic, so all you have to do is wear your Shine or Pebble.
