The Misfit Beddit Sleep System
The Misfit Beddit Sleep System gives you a picture, with fine-grain resolution, of your night’s sleep.

How to set up your Beddit, if you have a Shine
Plug in your Beddit Sleep Monitor.  Then navigate to the Sleep Screen.  Select Beddit for Sleep Tracker before you go to sleep.  If you do not select Beddit, then Shine will automatically track your sleep.

How to set up your Beddit, if you don’t have a Shine
Download the Misfit app from iOS App Store and select Beddit after creating your account.  Beddit needs to be plugged in while you’re sleeping.  Your app will default to showing you the sleep screen.  If you get a Shine later on, go to the menu in the upper left hand corner of your screen to link your Shine.

See Beddit’s estimate of your total sleep time, as well as the amount of time during sleep that it labels as especially restful, based on its detection of your movements, heartbeat, and breathing.

The 4 tiles below the sleep meter show you the number of hours it estimates as light versus especially restful sleep, average heart rate, and snoring.

Light sleep (hours)

Average heart rate (beats/ min)

Especially restful sleep (hours)

Snoring (hours)

Underneath that you’ll find information on the time you got in bed, the time you fell asleep, and the time of your final awakening.

Sleep Cycles & Insights
Swipe up to see chronological insights into your sleep.

The first graph is a sleep cycle graph that shows you more detailed information about the depth of your sleep over time, which is calculated using Misfit-Beddit’s proprietary algorithms based upon movement, heart rate, and breathing data it collects and analyzes. The peaks show periods of sleep that are labeled as more restful; the troughs show periods of sleep labeled as lighter. The areas where the graph drops below the awake line are intended to represent your awakenings during the night.

Below the first graph, are a series of mini-graphs showing you when you left the bed over the course of the night, when and for how long you snored, and your heart rate over the course of the night.

What does this mean?
The Misfit Beddit Sleep Monitor offers especially detailed and accurate information about your sleeping.  With this information, you can better understand how much and how well you actually sleep, and see the relationship between different lifestyle changes and your sleep.

For example, if you get more restful sleep on days where you get more Shine points, this can motivate you to continue to meet your daily activity goals.  Heart rate can also give you insights into your training regimen, as many athletes use resting heart rate to help them plan their workouts.  They find that when their resting heart rate is significantly higher than usual, this can be a sign of overtraining and that they need to cut back on their exercise for the day to give themselves a chance to recuperate.  Beddit will allow you to monitor these trends and optimize your work, play, and rest.

The CDC recommends that adults get between 7 and 8 hours of sleep per night, although individual sleep needs may vary.  If you have questions or concerns related to your sleep, contact your physician.  The Beddit Sleep Monitor is not a medical device and is not intended to prevent, diagnose, or treat any disease.
