Sleep trackers are a common use for smart technology, so smart beds are a logical outgrowth for people looking to track their sleeping habits. Although a Fitbit or Jawbone can track how much you stir in your sleep, a connected bed has a lot more data to work with. The Sleep Number 360 Smart Bed tracks how you sleep and automatically adjusts firmness, foot temperature, and support. It even sends a report to your smartphone every morning on how you slept the night before.
The Kohler Numi 2.0, for example, offers a slew of features including a motion-activated seat and cover, deodorizing filter, ambient lighting, warm-water cleansing, heated seat, UV sanitation, and built-in Amazon Alexa. This gold-standard throne also comes with a hefty price tag, so if you feel like that’s flushing money down the drain, check out the numerous other smart toilet seats available at lower prices.
