Nokia is adding to its rich portfolio of health and fitness gadgets a sleep tracking pad. There is nothing to wear or do. The Wi-Fi enabled gadget sits quietly under your mattress and keeps tabs on your sleep and more.

“Our vision is to help make the world a healthier place, and quality of sleep is as critical a component of a healthy lifestyle as regular exercise and a balanced diet,” said Rob Le Bras Brown, head of Nokia’s digital health business.

“Nokia Sleep gives users insight into what happens when their eyes are closed, along with the ability to change the environment for more restorative sleep with the IFTTT home automation capabilities.”

Announced at CES 2018 this week, the Finnish company’s sleep mattress pad is designed to be positioned on the side of the bed, at chest level. The gadget will provide you with detailed info on sleep cycles (deep, light and REM), heart rate and snoring.

Each morning the accompanying smartphone app will also dish out a Sleep Score, a single figure letting you know how restful your sleep really was. In the app you can take advantage of Nokia’s guidance and programs to help you improve your nights over time.

For the geeks amongst us, the pad comes with IFTTT integration for automation of certain activities such as dimming lights when you go to bed, and turning the radio or thermostat on and off. The company’s Health mate app will also be upgraded to be compatible with Alexa.

Nokia Sleep will be made available in the first quarter of 2018 at a very reasonable $99.95. You will be able to pick it up from the company’s website or Amazon. In addition to this new device, Nokia has also announced a rose gold version of the Steel HR smartwatch.
