CEA & NSF Wearable Sleep Monitors Working Group

Overview

Sleep technology has incredible potential to improve consumers’ sleep and their health, but in many cases current sleep trackers have not met consumer expectations. It is possible for wearables to produce useful sleep tracking metrics, but we need to standardize.

That’s why CEA and the National Sleep Foundation have partnered to explore technology standards that will aid the development of consumer sleep technology. In 2014, CEA formed a Wearable Sleep Monitors Working Group that is developing standards, bulletins and other documents addressing wearable sleep monitoring equipment.

Members

In addition to sleep experts from NSF, the working group includes companies at the leading edge of digital health technology, including Fitbit, Misfit Wearables, Jawbone, Qualcomm Life and Hillcrest Laboratories, among many others.

Working Group Progress

The Group has now published the standards below:
