Sleep Pad, which was introduced a few years back as a renamed version of its Nokia counterpart, is a device that slides beneath your mattress and collects a variety of data. This covers details about sleep cycles (deep, light, and REM), snoring, and other topics. The nicest aspect about the gadget is that it has no touch with the body and no need to be turned on or off.
In April 2020, Withings published a new version called Sleep Analyzer (available on withings.com), which adds several new features like the ability to track sleep apnea. As a result, it became the world’s first non-invasive sensor capable of detecting the disease in which breathing stops and starts again.
In our review, we discovered that Sleep Analyzer performs admirably. In fact, Gadgets & Wearables recommends it as a sleep tracking device. It’s hidden beneath your mattress, with no buttons to press or batteries to charge. Get into bed and shut your eyes. This is exactly what you’re looking for: a low-maintenance tracker that you’ll forget about.
The same apnea detection feature is now available on Sleep Mat. It will be available as part of a firmware upgrade (Health Mate 4.10.1). In the app’s Device settings, you should see a button to activate once it’s been downloaded and installed. It’s a function that you can activate with just one click. In addition to the app, ensure the firmware on the device is the most recent version available. It’s worth noting that this is a phased rollout, so it may take some time to reach everyone. For the time being, European Sleep users are the only ones who can utilize it.
