Withings new SLEEP ANALYZER – Sleep Sensing & Home Automation Pad

Reading Time: 2 minutes

withings sleepWithings have announced a replacement of their old Withings Sleep (under-mattress mat) with their new Withings Sleep Analyzer/Sleep Sensing & Home Automation Pad. The new mat looks very similar to the old one but that’s OK, it was a good design in any case.

Towards the end of its life, the original Withings Sleep was regularly selling below $/£100 and represented great value at that level compared to EMFIT QS and certainly when compared to Apple’s generally underwhelming offering ‘Beddit’ (they were too embarrassed to brand it as ‘Apple’)

Now we are seeing the Withings creep up to €129,95/£119.95. That’s still OK but this time you get SLEEP APNEA detection built-in. Perhaps the price rise justifies the pseudo-medical use-case on offer here?

Hmmm. Perhaps not…unless you have sleep apnea (which is a serious condition…a friend of mine has it quite badly)

The tech-lovers amongst us might like the introduction of IFTT support. Essentially that means that when you get out of bed your smart home can be triggered into all sort of weird and wonderful actions. Me? I just say ‘OK Google, good morning‘ to trigger my daily routines and I’m not sure I’d want Withings+IFTT to trigger them at 5 am when I take my scheduled nightly wee-break (too much information…sorry)

Thoughts?

I like Withings products and ecosystem. they seem to stutter and start from one year to the next but they fundamentally look cool and stick to relatively simple lifestyle/activity tasks without pretending to be for sporty people. Which is fine, they are targetting a much bigger market. Certainly, in the SLEEP space they can take on Apple’s BEDDIT (at least for now) and they will always trump the sleep-techiness of EMFIT which is better-suited to sleep obsessed analysts like I sometimes can be.

Amazon (EU) link: Get yours on Amazon HERE for €129,95/£119.95 (USA pricing not know but likely to be $130 once listed, not listed as of 28Apr2020)

    1. please explain

      I have added a new auto link insertion tool and so need to monitor what it is doing, i don’t know if this is what you are referring to. or are my links referring to an old product? it seems ok from what i see in the uk

      1. Sorry, I didn’t mean to be accusatory. It didn’t link to actual products in the article — it just generically linked to a search for the product name in my local country Amazon store (which is US). So, essentially, it linked to nothing (but still got a referral attribution for any other purchases I may make).

        1. ha, ok i think i get it now.
          yes i believe this product is uk/eu only at first. i will add a note to that effect.
          so yes, there will be a currently dead link in the usa
          i just can’t remember to come back in 3 weeks time to manually overwrite the usa setting. (In most case i optimise for usa in preference to uk in preference to eu. so YOU would rarely see this. someone in Portugal would see it all the time)
          so i don’t know what to do there. the5krunner.com has somewhat limited manpower resources (but always good intentions 😉 )
          yes there could be a benefit if you were to make a purchase HOWEVER retailers are getting very savvy and such secondary clicks from many retailers now generate just about zero commission ie the commission must come from the exact product referred/linked to. so a silly example would be that i refer someone for a fitbit versa and they end up buying a versa 2. I would get a minuscule commission; yet clearly i referred the customer. i doubt even dcr could influence amazon’s policies, tho he might be able to with his other partners.

          I said it before. the ONLY way to make commissions in this game is to have close sales links for garmin products. (maybe drones make money too, IDK)
          all the rest of it is icing on the cake

          edit: see how i changed the link? not so snappy now is it !! 😉 [it will probably make zero sales in any case, this article is just a news item]

  1. The Withings solution. Not sleeping well (6.5 hours) and really would like consistent sleep data
