What is ResMed S+?
Flash back to a few years ago. If we tell you that there is a gadget that is capable of monitoring you while you sleep, you’d probably find it ridiculous. Those things would only exist in sci-fi movies. But today, all these technology seems pretty normal. One advancement is this ResMed S+ sleep tracker. Unlike the things we see in sci-fi movie, this sleep tracker won’t do you any harm.
Developers did a good job at exploring activity tracking technology and they actually made it better through the years. This is why there are already a lot of trackers sold in the market and products like fitness trackers and smart watches are considered to have accurate data.
On the other hand, sleep tracking accuracy falls a few steps behind. It mostly measures the physical movement and not the details of how we sleep. ResMed believes that they have found the solution and they are bringing it to the next level. This means that we can forego with all the attachments when we sleep when we try to track our sleep.
The very first questions would be: Does it really work? What types of data does it display? Does it help us have a better night sleep?
Physical Design and Build
Many people will agree that the sleek look of the S+ is awesome. It’s not so tacky and it actually blends well with the things on your bedside table. It is surrounded by metal and the main control center is a shiny white fascia box. It is simple and minimalist. It would have been perfect if not for the power cord attached right at the middle.
The LED indicator at the top part glows red and green. Red means that it is powered on but no phone is connected to it. Green means that your smartphone is within its range and that it is ready to do its job. When you sleep, the light will turn off, leaving you at peace and darkness.
The size of the whole S+ is reasonable. It’s not too big and bulky that it occupies space. It also is heavier so you don’t easily knock it down or accidentally move it.
Sleep Tracking Abilities
S+ uses radio waves for it to start detecting your sleep. This is why it functions without coming in contact with it. This also means that it can function even when there are obstacles between the S+ and you like your covers. Additionally, it is very sensitive enough that it can still continue working even with your sleeping with someone beside you are when you turn to another sleeping position.
When you hit the Sleep button as you prepare to sleep, the Bluetooth-connected smartphone app will ask you a few questions regarding your day. It can range from the stress levels you felt all throughout the day to the things you consumed. After this, you can specify an alarm or put on a calming sound to help you sleep.
App and Data
Technically, the S+ is just one large sensor. So, all your sleep tracking data is stored on the app on your smartphone. On the one hand, it is preferable since you only get to deal with controlling everything on your phone. But, that also means that your phone needs to be connected throughout the night. Also, there is no built-in speaker in the S+ so if you choose to play sounds and alarms it will come from your phone too. This could result to battery drain.
The good thing is that the S+ comes with a dual-USB wall adaptor so you can ensure that the S+ is on and you can also charge your phone at the same time.
In the app, you can see insights and analysis that will help you come up with a sleeping strategy. They might seem overwhelming at first but you will soon get the hang of studying these data.
