NordicTrack is collaborating with iFit to create new sleep technology that will enable users to get better and more customized workouts. NordicTrack is best known for its line of workout equipment, such as treadmills and ellipticals. The sleep technology will help users to see how their sleep patterns are impacting their daily lives and exercise habits.
The sleep technology is a small, disc-shaped gadget that users slide under a mattress to wirelessly detect heart rate, respiratory rate and sleep patterns. The app that is paired with the gadget provides users with a full diagnostic of how they slept the night before and provides recommendations on how to improve sleep. Consumers with connected iFit workout machines from NordicTrack will be able to alter their workouts to improve sleep quality.
