Apple's Beddit Sleep Tracking Company Now Offering Beta for Testing New Features

Apple-owned Beddit recently launched a new beta testing program that’s designed to allow those who own the new Beddit 3.5 device released in December to test new and upcoming features.

In a new “Beta Program” section of the Beddit website (via 9to5Mac), Beddit says it is launching a new customer beta program that will let customers contribute to “making the product even better.”

Through the Beddit Beta Program, you will have early access to new versions of the Beddit app before the general public. Participants will share valuable feedback with Apple Inc. (“Apple”) such as app use, app settings, sleep results, and other diagnostic information. We may also request additional feedback through surveys. More information about how this data will be shared with Apple will be explained in an informed consent form that you must complete before starting the program.

The beta program will provide early access to new versions of the Beddit app prior to when those updates are released. No specific details on what features might be tested were included.

Participants must own a Beddit Sleep Monitor (version 3.5), must be located in the United States and using Beddit only in the United States, and need to be at least 22 years old but not over 75 years old.

Participants must also agree to receive email communications from Apple “from time to time” about the Beddit Beta Program.

Beddit 3.5 owners can sign up for the beta on the website by clicking on the “Enroll Now” button to send an email to the Beddit support staff.

Apple released the updated Beddit 3.5 back in December. The new model received some criticism for doing away with features like an ambiguous “sleep score,” but in our review, we found it to be much more accurate than the Beddit 3 sleep monitor.

The Beddit 3.5 marked the first new version of the device since Apple’s 2017 acquisition of the company. It’s not clear what Apple is doing with sleep data collected from the Beddit, but it could be used for developing a future sleep-related Apple product, such as sleep tracking capabilities for Apple Watch.
