Amazon introduces new bedside gadget that monitors you while sleeping

In the olden days, that was called “stalking.”

BPR: Did you get a good night’s rest? For $139, Amazon’s Halo Rise can tell you. And you can integrate it into your burgeoning inventory of Amazon gadgets.

Will it be another bit of personal data that Amazon collects on individuals? A catchphrase from Amazon advertising boasts that the new gadget “Quietly works the night shift.” more here

  1. I need something to keep me from sleeping on my left side.
    I have an shoulder AC joint strain/tear that will wake me up in pain if I sleep that way.
    Yes I know they say affix a tennis ball to your side but I’m not doing that.

  2. I’ve got a dog, a cat, and a wife, they all seem to determine whether or not I get a good night sleep or not. If the dog barks I’m ready for trouble, I can’t count on the other two. The last thing I want is an Amazon bedside gadget. What the hell are people thinking?

  3. My watch has a rolling heart rate monitor that shows the last 4 hours on the screen.
    I always check it when I wake up.
    Usually when my heart rate is very low, it was a very deep sleep.
    37 = deep sleep
    46 = restless sleep
    It’s never higher than 46 during sleep, usually averages 40.

    No it’s not Bradycardia…

    Use soft things to block off part of your bed so that you’ve got less than a twin bed width to sleep on. Go to sleep lying on your right side. It’s virtually certain that you’ll have to wake up to turn over.

  5. I got this remarkable in-bed assistant 27 years ago that not only monitors my sleeping, but also cooks meals, cleans house, bears children, manages finances, looks good on my arm, and takes care of some OTHER important stuff too that’s none of your business.

    It’s called a “wife”.

    …yes, they ARE expensive, there’s a lifetime contract involved, and the upkeep and maintenance expenses for them only grows the longer they stay in service, but maintained properly they can do all these things and more, even listen to my nonsense stories and assist in the upkeep of even OLDER units.

    And as far as monitoring your rest, mine kicked me out of the bed for snoring just last night.

    Nothing Amazon makes can do any better.

    Enjoy them while you have them.
    Just lost my 10 year old Great Dane 2 months ago and it still hurts, waking up and thinking he’s still laying on the floor next to me. Pretty sure God made a mistake not having them live longer?
    He had a good run.

  7. FitBit monitors it all, even down to how many glasses of water you drank for the day. It’s not a big deal for sleep. Shows when you went to bed, when you woke up, your REM and deep sleep patterns. You even get a weekly progress report.

    Sorry for your loss, I went through about 6 dogs in the past 40 years, it doesn’t get easier and I miss them all. There are still three in the house here.
