What is Sleep IQ® technology?

SleepIQ Technology is part of your bed. It's a wellness device you don't have to wear and never need to charge. SleepIQ uses sensors in your bed to track your sleep and connects to the SleepIQ app, so you can view your daily SleepIQ score, track your activities, control your bed, learn your circadian rhythm, access personalized wellness reports, and manage your SleepIQ account. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a SleepIQ score?

Your daily SleepIQ score is based on the quality and quantity of your sleep. The score ranges from 10-100. 100 is the highest score you can get, but anything between 70-100 is considered really great. Read more about Understanding Your SleepIQ Score.

What to expect: Once your bed is online you’ll get a SleepIQ score the morning after your very first night—and every morning after. 

After you get to know each other for a while, SleepIQ will learn your trends and habits and know what an average night of sleep looks like for you. From this information, SleepIQ will offer individualized tips and recommendations about how to improve your quality of sleep.

As SleepIQ technology learns your sleep routines, it will give you suggestions, like your ideal bedtime and wake up time, to help you learn how to get your best possible sleep. The more you personalize your activities and wellness profile, the more insights you'll experience. 

Each month you'll receive a wellness report highlighting how you slept.

How does SleepIQ help improve my sleep?

Research shows tracking your sleep brings awareness to the little choices and habits you make each day that impact the quality of your sleep. Awareness is what sparks that aha, I know what I need to do, gut feeling moments of intuition and inspiration that lead to lasting change. This same principle is true with food and fitness tracking. If you want to improve something, the first step is to be aware of your current state.

Once you start using the SleepIQ app, you’ll be surprised how quickly you start discovering insights that help you focus on opportunities to optimize the quality of your sleep.

What are a good heart rate and breathing rate?

Heart and breath rate recorded by SleepIQ are averaged and are not recorded in real-time for diagnostic purposes. Averages help you track consistency and recognize changes. Keep in mind, average heart rate, and breath rate can be impacted by cardiovascular conditioning, daily stress, alcohol use, age, weight, and overall health. For example, runners tend to have a lower resting heart rate than other people their age. Have a talk with your physician if you are concerned about changes in your biometrics or why your biometrics are different than your sleep partner.

How do I check my SleepIQ score?

Log into the SleepIQ app from your mobile device or the SleepIQ website from an internet browser.

Make sure you are out of bed for the day before checking your SleepIQ score. If you're checking your SleepIQ score on your remote we recommend waiting for a half-hour after getting out of bed to allow time for your score to finalize. If you want to check your score sooner we recommend using the SleepIQ app for the best experience. The SleepIQ app also provides additional insights and information about naps, biometrics, Circadian Rhythm, and more.

Do I need Wi-Fi to get a SleepIQ score?

Your bed needs to connect to WiFi to record your SleepIQ score. Getting your bed online allows you to access all the features and benefits of your bed.

Can I turn off data recording?

Yes, you can turn data recording off at any time for any reason with the SleepIQ app or Sleep Number® remote. 

With your app: Select Bed; scroll down to Privacy. When Privacy Mode is on, no data will be recorded for either side of the bed. 

With your remote: Press and hold the enter button until asked if you’d like to turn SleepIQ off, approximately 2-4 seconds. When SleepIQ is turned off, no data will be recorded for either side of the bed. Follow the same steps to turn SleepIQ back on.  

You can also remove your Wi-Fi network from your bed if you no longer want your bed connected to Wi-Fi. Click to see how
