The accompanying app combines this data into a sleep fit score, providing advice on what time to sleep to make up for any deficits and encouraging you to maintain sleep fitness. From $2,495, mattress only.

Available in both gluten and peanut versions, Nima claims its sensors are 97 percent accurate. $229 plus $5 per sample capsule.
