Today at CES Sleep Number announced the technological follow-up to its iPhone-connected "IT" smart bed from last year. The new bed is the Sleep Number 360, a self-adjusting smart bed that can warm your feet, adjust to your snoring and more.


The bed, which uses Sleep Number's SleepIQ technology, has four new signature features. The bed can self-adjust throughout the night, matching the sleep movements of the sleeper. For instance, if someone switches from sleeping on their side to sleeping on their stomach, the bed will adjust comfort in real time. The bed can also sense when a sleeper is snoring and gently adjusts the sleeper so that they're in a position that will lessen snoring.

Snore adjustment is temporary, and the feature only works with mild snoring in otherwise healthy adults, according to Sleep Number. The feature adjusts the bed based on the sleeper's sleeping position. For instance, if the snorer is on their back the bed will raise their head slightly.

The 360 also comes foot-warming technology. Because the bed knows the sleeper's bedtime routine via the SleepIQ app, it can warm up the foot of the bed to be toasty when the sleeper is ready to go to sleep. The company claims that research shows that people fall asleep faster when their feet are warmer than normal.


Finally, the bed has a smart alarm that'll deliver a wake-up call at the optimal moment. Sleepers can set an alarm window via the SleepIQ app, and the bed, within that window, will deliver an alarm when the sleeper is in their lightest sleep.

The SleepIQ app can also connect the bed to external services and products like Fitbits and Nest Thermostats. It can combine this data to let users know how fitness is impacting their sleep habits and when let the sleeper know what temperature is best for them to fall asleep.

The Sleep Number 360 will rollout in phases throughout 2017. Sleep Number did not announce official pricing for the new beds, but said that it would be priced similar to current mattresses. Sleep Number's current mattresses range from $800 to $7,099 for queen sizes.

The SleepIQ app is available for free in the App Store [Direct Link]

Gotta say that as gimmicky as this sounds it does provide solutions to two common problems, snoring, and cold feet. Unfortunately for me and my wife hot feet is more common.

I do have a sleep number bed and I love it. We've had it for 10 years and it still feels as good as it did when we first bought it. Better actually because we added a pillow top. I won't buy anything else that isn't adjustable if this thing ever gives out.

My only negative comment would be price. Maybe this is priced correctly for all it does but its difficult to consider spending $6K on a mattress. (guessing on price based on the current King size offerings) Also, I wonder what is making the adjustments at night in pressure. The standard pump is not super quiet.

O.O

I was looking at the feature list and thinking "The price is going to be high, but I spent $1200 for my current mattress. This will be a bargain by comparison."

Nope. All those features do not justify spending 5x as much as I spent on my already ludicrously expensive mattress.

Oh it may well be rubbish of course, but it's more the theory that'll be attacked on here, over and over again.

I had one for over 10 years and then gave it to my parents who continue to use it with a pillow top as you stated. These could easily last for ever making them worth the investment. Their top end close to $8k seems a bit much. We gave ours up because my wife wanted to try the memory foam from tempurpedic. It's been a couple of years now and we are regretting the switch. We will go back at some point.

Most uncomfortable and least durable bed I have ever owned. The whole sleep number thing is a total gimmick. Run away.
Quite disagree. My experience has been just the opposite and it seem I am not alone. I would be interested in hearing what your experience was that leads you to make such a comment.

Yea there are people that just don't like them and some that do. My friend hates them but loves the temperpedic. My wife
likes our sleep number but I don't like it. Seems to be a love or hate type product.

Price wise is definitely expensive. I haven't tested the Sleep Number. But I believe it's easily manageable to adjust your liking based, especially if your someone who changes in sleep preferences from firm to soft. I like how it's accustomed to you.

Ours was $1,500 for a dual zone queen when we bought it. Cheaper than a lot of queen mattresses and box springs at the time and totally better than a tempurpedic (we've slept on a few).

People who don't like them are out of their minds. You can make it as firm as any hard mattress or as soft as a deflated air mattress. It's one of the few marketing claims that really holds true (fully adjustable). I'd be miserable without it because my wife likes soft beds and I prefer mid (not soft, not firm).
