Apple acquires sleep-tracking device maker Beddit
Cupertino-based tech giant Apple Inc. has acquired a Finnish company called Beddit, which makes sleep-tracking devices that work with iOS apps as well as the Apple Watch.
The Finnish firm’s latest product is the $149 Beddit 3 Sleep Monitor, which is a sensor-equipped strip under a bed sheet to track nocturnal movements via a technique known as ballistocardiography.
Sleep-tracking is a significant logical area for the Cupertino firm to move into, and it has already shown its keen interest in Beddit’s technology by selling its sleep-tracking devices in its stores.
