What are a good heart rate and breathing rate?

Heart and breath rate recorded by Sleep your smart bed 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 Sleep Number 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 Sleep Number app for the best experience. The Sleep Number 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 Wi-Fi to record your SleepIQ score. Getting your bed online allows you to access all the features and benefits of your bed.
