You can use Beddit in most beds. But a water bed or an electric heated mattress pad may create interference that affects Beddit's accuracy.
Yes, Beddit is designed to track sleep in a shared bed. You will need one sensor and one phone per person.
Yes, keep Beddit continuously plugged into a power outlet using its power adapter. This way, your Beddit is always ready to monitor your sleep.
We recommend that you charge your phone near the bed all night. Charging the battery is only part of the reason. When your phone is on the bedside table, its microphone can pick up your snoring and also deliver the best smart alarm experience.
Keep your phone connected via Bluetooth to your Beddit sleep monitor all night long. Measuring your sleep creates a large amount of data, and the best way to have your results instantly available in the morning is to stream the measurements to your phone continuously.
Use the Beddit app to connect your device to the Beddit sleep monitor. The Beddit sleep monitor doesn't appear under Settings > Bluetooth on your iOS device.
You must sleep on top of the sensor for Beddit to measure your sleep, heart rate, and breathing. You don't need to sleep in the middle of the sensor, but at least some part of your upper body needs to touch the sensor. Beddit works in any sleep position—side, stomach, or back. If you move off the sensor, the Beddit app concludes that you're awake or away from the bed.
Yes, Beddit works in coordination with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. In fact, many customers use a Beddit in combination with CPAP treatment to monitor how well the treatment improves their sleep.
You don't need to open the Beddit app or push any buttons at bedtime when you enable automatic measurement. Just go to bed and sleep. Beddit senses when you're lying in bed and when you've gotten up.
How to enable automatic measurement
If you don't want to use automatic measurement, you can track your sleep manually. If you choose this option, you'll need to open the Beddit app before you go to sleep.
Yes, Beddit can sync sleep time, heart rate, and respiration data to your iPhone or iPod touch with the Apple Health app. This information also appears in the Clock app under Bedtime.
To activate health kit synchronization, tap Settings > Apple Health > Connect. Tap Turn All Categories On > Allow.
Beddit syncs your sleep results after every night. After a few days, you'll see the summary.
No. The Beddit app requires you to pair with a Beddit Sleep Monitor to track your sleep.

As of November 15, 2018, we no longer support Beddit Cloud, which allowed you to back up your sleep data on your online Beddit account and view it across multiple iOS devices.
Any sleep data you stored locally on your iOS device and in your device backups depending on your backup preferences, continues to be available.
Log out of the Beddit app on all your devices, then log back in to the Beddit app. This should force the devices to sync your sleep data.

You don't need a serial number or product code to get support for your Beddit product.
If you're new to sleep tracking, we suggest that you track your sleep for two weeks before you dig into the details. Keep an eye on your SleepScore, Sleep Time, Sleep Efficiency, and Heart Rate during this period. Together they give you a good view of the quantity and quality of your sleep. A SleepScore of over 75 means that you had a good night's sleep. You can follow your results in the weekly history.
Press the Sleep button in the evening to get the most accurate results. While it takes a few extra seconds to start the measurement manually, it allows you to record the moment you plan to start sleeping. It's also the easiest way to avoid measuring awake periods while you read a book, play a game, or watch TV in bed before you sleep.
You also get better results when you place the Beddit sensor where you're most likely to sleep.
Measure your sleep until you get a high SleepScore, preferably above 75, or a score that's significantly higher than usual. Think about what you did (or didn't do) the previous day and evening. Then try to repeat the pattern. Monitor the results and make small adjustments as you learn what improves your sleep.
A SleepScore over 75 indicates that you had a good night's sleep. Your SleepScore combines several factors related to sleep quality, including those displayed beneath the score. These details show the previous night's numbers and compare them to your average numbers.
The Beddit sleep monitor tracks your sleep when you lie on top of it. If you move off the sensor, Beddit concludes that you're awake, so you'll see a gap in the results. To avoid these gaps, position the sensor so that it offers the best coverage of your sleeping area.
No, they're not. Sleep patterns broadly describe the behavior of many aspects of sleep. Sleep cycles refer to how your body shifts from light to deep sleep stages throughout the night.
Beddit 3 measures tiny body movements in response to the heart pumping blood (cardiac contraction), and the breathing effort (thorax expansion). You can see the same effect by standing on an old-fashioned spring scale and watching the ticker flinch with every heartbeat. We spent years filtering the signal from the noise and became exceptionally good at it. Find out more about the underlying principle, called ballistocardiography, on Wikipedia.
