    Default Withings Announces Aura "Sleep Tracking" System


    The France-based consumer electronics company, Withings, which made a name for itself with its Wi-Fi body scale, announced a new connected device today called the Aura. Withings calls the Aura a “smart sleep system,” and says it's designed to both monitor and positively impact your sleep experience. It does this by leveraging a combination of sensors, ambient lighting, a little science and a mobile app.

    For those of you who are knowledgeable about iOS device accessories, you’ll quickly realize that we’ve seen so-called “sleep trackers” before built into fitness devices from Jawbone and Fitbit. It’s pretty clear that Withings has bigger ambitions here as it takes the task of monitoring your sleep activity much more seriously.

    There appear to be two parts to the Aura, a pad that sliders under your mattress to monitor your body movements, breathing cycles and heart rate; and a bedside unit for tracking things like noise pollution, room temperature, and light levels. The bedside device also doubles as an alarm clock, with the ability to wake you up via dimmable LEDs or sounds. Both parts can be controlled via the companion smartphone app, where you can also view their collective data.



    As of right now, there isn’t any info on which platforms the Aura will support but the expectation is that it’ll probably land on iOS first and then head to Android. Withings says that it plans to launch the device in the spring of this year with a $300 price tag.

    Are any of you considering picking up the Aura?
