Engadget Review

The Nokia Sleep bed sensor works just fine as a sleep tracker, but when it comes to smart home integration, it was decidedly disappointing. Not only was it a little buggy, it didn’t really make use of the device’s sleep pattern sensing abilities, and it doesn’t even have an alarm. At the end, the Sleep doesn’t do much more than other sleep trackers or sleep-tracking apps.

All of this I could ultimately justify for the right person, especially with the smart home connectivity. The app is a streamlined experience, and I found the reminders helpful. But, my tipping point is the lack of an alarm clock on a device created exclusively for tracking and improving sleep. Even with all the automatic functionality built into the Nokia Sleep, you’ll still have to use whatever your alarm of choice is, which is even more frustrating knowing this is something that Nokia could have... done in its sleep.

Although I wasn't particularly curious about my sleeping habits before trying it, the Nokia Sleep has actually made going to sleep more fun for me. I'm not necessarily trying to go for a perfect sleep score each night, but if I wake up a little groggy in the morning, it's nice to know I can use actual data to help me understand why and improve my routine for the future.

The Nokia Sleep isn't cheap (as mentioned above, it's $99.95, £99.95 in the UK) and there are apps that do some of the same things. But it's easy to set up, once you've got the position right. And the collection and presentation of data which analyze your sleep and make sense of it is really strong. Nokia makes other devices, like its brilliant bathroom scales, the Body Cardio, for example. And its cool thermometer is second to none. It's scary how quickly I have come to depend on the sleep analysis, but not really a surprise – I've been checking my weight on Withings scales for years now and being able to see trends and changes is fascinating. Knowledge is power, after all.
