Number. "The revolutionary Sleep Number x12 with SleepIQ technology TM is
the ultimate integrated sleep experience that takes the mystery out of
sleep and empowers consumers with the information they need to improve
their sleep, and therefore, their lives."
In addition to SleepIQ, the Sleep Number x12 bed combines three other
new and proprietary technologies with the company's core DualAir TM
technology to deliver the ultimate, comfortable sleep experience. The
integrated x12 technology provides consumers with the knowledge and the
ability to know better sleepSM.
In recognition of its outstanding design, innovation and consumer value,
the x12 bed was selected as an Honoree in the 2014 CES Innovations
Awards in the two categories entered: Home Appliances and Health and
Fitness. The x12 bed will be featured at Sleep
Number's booth during CES in Las Vegas Jan. 7-10, 2014 (LVCC South
Hall 2, #26729).
Know Better Sleep with SleepIQ Technology
The x12 bed is the first Sleep Number bed to offer SleepIQ technology -
a proprietary, touch-free, non-intrusive and intuitive technology that
was developed by Sleep Number and its partner BAM
Labs. Rooted in medical-grade technology and integrated into the
Sleep Number bed's advanced DualAir TM technology, the SleepIQ system TM
comprehensively monitors presence in bed, average breathing rate,
movement and average heart rate. A proprietary, full-body algorithm
assesses quality of sleep and provides a SleepIQ score TM for each sleep
partner, every night.
SleepIQ technology studies SleepIQ score trends over time, and tells
each person what level of comfort and support - their Sleep Number
setting - ensures their best sleep. Using the journal feature and the
SleepIQ data, individuals can track and identify routines that affect
their sleep - such as exercise, caffeine and TV - and be empowered to
make adjustments to achieve their best sleep.
Ultimate Comfort with Advanced DualAir Technology and FlexFit
The Sleep Number x12 bed provides limitless adjustability and
individualization. At the heart of the x12 bed is advanced DualAir
technology. Adjustable air chambers and a Firmness Control system allow
consumers to easily find their ideal level of comfort and support on
each side of the bed - their Sleep Number setting.
Exclusive FlexFit TM technology enables consumers to raise or lower their
upper and lower body for ultimate comfort. FlexFit technology also goes
far beyond simple articulation and includes a Partner Snore TM feature,
several massage settings, under-bed lighting, and a timer that can be
set to return the user to a favorite massage or sleeping position, or
turns off the lights on their night stand.
Additionally, with the introduction of the x12 bed, Sleep Number is
offering an exclusive FlexTop TM mattress design option, which allows each
sleep partner to adjust their elevation to their preferred position
while keeping a feeling of togetherness.
Finally, the communication platform of the x12 bed brings together all
these technologies and provides control through a single, universal
remote, or with simple voice commands. The communication platform is
designed for future features and software upgrades to be seamlessly
pushed to the consumer.
The x12 bed will be available in pilot markets in February and will be
available nationwide in the coming months. Prices start at $7,999.99.
