Samsung gets into the sleep tracking business
I am CNET's Ry Crist here at the IFA Tech Conference in Berlin and we're at the Samsung booth checking out Samsung's SleepSense.
This is a new sensor that you'll slip under your mattress to track your movements in the night and gives you a sense of how good you're sleeping.
In the morning, you can pick up your phone and check out a custom tailored report with all sorts of advice on how to get a better nights rest.
Now Sleep Sense will also pair with other Samsung smart appliances, even a Bluetooth radio.
You'll be able to pair it with Samsung TVs, and have them turn off if you fall asleep when watching them, or turn off lights when you fall asleep, turn on the air conditioning.
You can also sync it up with the Samsung acquired Smart Things hub.
Version two of that is out, and also on display here at [UNKNOWN].
The tracking has gotten popular with a lot of wearable devices and even free apps out there that do it for you.
So it'll be interesting to see this thing compete.
We don't know how much it's gonna cost or when it's gonna be available.
And like you we are ready for the rest.
