HELSINKI (Reuters) – Apple has acquired a sleep tracking app and hardware maker Beddit, the company said on Wednesday.
Beddit manufactures a monitoring device which tracks heart rate, breathing and sleep time when placed on a bed.
The monitor, which sells for $149.95 in Apple’s online store, transfers the data to Beddit’s iPhone app for analysis.
An Apple spokesperson declined to disclose the terms of the deal.
Apple said Beddit users should see no changes to their use of the app following the deal.
