Both do not require wearing any device, the hello sense pill is attached to your pillow and the sphere-sensor is near the bed, the beddit is a strip that goes under / on top of the sheets. Both use an app to record/look at data.
Features for hello sense & for beddit. Both are BTLE (Bluetooth low energy, also called Bluetooth Smart). The beddit does heart rate and breathing (snoring detection too) since it’s physically on the bed, the hello sense has light, temperature, sound and humidity (and air quality). Both have “smart alarms”. Price, $149 for beddit and $129 for hello sense.
Screenshots from last night’s test.
So which one is “better”? That depends, do you care more about the environment and conditions in which you sleep? Or knowing how you slept after physically (heart rate/breathing, etc). The beddit is more about quantified self and the hello sense is more about getting the environment optimized for best sleep. It’s really an individual preference when it comes to sleep tracking.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
