Sleep IQ – A Sleep Number Product Review

A few weeks ago I received an assignment from Smiley360 to visit a Sleep Number store, try the mattresses, and speak with a representative about their new technology – Sleep IQ, a product I was completely unfamiliar with until this mission.

If you've ever shopped for a mattress before, you know how difficult it can be. Sometimes you are shopping for the perfect mattress, something like what you find in a hotel, and you are only ever disappointed after actually purchasing the mattress when you get home and discover that it was really only comfortable in the store where you made the purchase… Other times you are looking to replace your well-used and worn in mattress that is super comfy but perhaps you need an upgrade because you are, for example, getting married. Sharing a twin bed with your significant other can be a bit tight…

While shopping at the Sleep Number Store, the thing that stood out to me most about the new technology is your ability to be uncertain about the level of comfort you need at night. In other words, you don't have to worry about picking out the perfect mattress at the store. Through the Sleep IQ app, you can alter you specific sleep number and adjust it to fit you and your needs until you get it right, all within the comfort of your own home. Even better, the Sleep IQ app tracks your blood pressure and heart rate to determine how well you are sleeping at night providing you with recommendations for what your perfect sleep number could be. After every night that you sleep on the Sleep Number bed, you will receive a sleep score; hopefully as you figure out and adjust your sleep number so that it is a perfect fit for you, your sleep score will increase allowing you to get the most comfortable sleep possible for your body type and needs.

One of the things the representative made certain to mention was that the Sleep IQ app can always work to show you different things you are doing on a daily basis that may be affecting your sleep quality. There is an in app diary that allows you to keep track of your food and drink intake, how much caffeine and sugar you are consuming, and how often/when you exercise. Everybody has a different type of body and schedule and the Sleep IQ app attempts to help you configure your bed to match what you specifically need.

The only downside I discerned from my experience with the new Sleep IQ app and the Sleep Number beds was that there are monitors on both sides of the mattress – fantastic for married couples! But what about singles? Or those people –ahem, me– who attempt to take over the bed and sleep in the middle on a nightly basis? (Yes, I am deserving of the whole king size bed.) Unfortunately, the representative could only share that the Sleep IQ app would probably get very confused and not work as well for people like me, which wasn't too surprising.

Overall, I loved what I learned from the Sleep Number store. For the right people the Sleep Number bed and Sleep IQ app sound like they would be amazing and significantly improve one's sleep. Unfortunately, given my specific circumstances, I'm not sure it is right for me, but I will definitely keep an eye on the technology as it changes and improves over time. Certainly at some point in the future I am sure the company will be able to adjust the technology to work with all of it's consumers.
