Sleep Number adds a smart bed for kids
LAS VEGAS -- Sleep Number targeted well-heeled early adopters last year with its $8,000. This year it has a more approachable model, with its new SleepIQ Kids Bed coming in at a more down-to-earth $1,000. (International pricing and availability has not yet been announced.) It doesn't have two adjustable mattresses like its predecessor, but it makes up for it with charming, kid-appropriate smart features.
According to Sleep Number, the SleepIQ Kids Bed will adjust to accommodate the growing bodies of your children. As their bodies change, so will the support given by their mattress. Sleep Number promises to optimize the surface for comfort and spinal alignment.
It'll also monitor presence in bed, average breathing, heart rate, and movement to get a sense of how well they're sleeping. The app will track this with a score and let you input information about their day with them, so together you can learn what goes into a good night's rest.
It's the size of a quarter and can help you track down almost anything you've lost.
