New Google Nest Hub
Sensors Tracks Sleep Habits
GOOGLE NEST is moving into the wellness arena for the fi rst
time with a new sleep tracking feature in its second-generation
$99 Nest Hub display product.
As described on the Google Health website, the new Nest
Hub has what is called Sleep Sensing that uses Motion Sense
to analyze how the person closest to the display is sleeping,
based on their movement and breathing - without a camera
or wearable.
Sleep Sensing can also detect sleep disturbances like coughing
and snoring, or the light and temperature changes in the
room with Nest Hub's built-in microphones and ambient light
and temperature sensors, so users can better understand from a
wellness standpoint what is impacting their sleep, says Google.
According to Ashton Udall, product manager at Google
Nest, " Every morning you'll receive a personalized sleep
summary on your display, or you can view your sleep data
anytime on the Nest Hub by asking, 'Hey Google, how did
I sleep?' Sleep Sensing can
also connect to your Google
Fit app on Android and iOS
devices, so you can see your
sleep summary alongside your
other health and wellness
information. "
Udall explains that the GooThe
latest device includes
Sleep Sensing to detect
movement and breathing
during the night.
gle Nest Hub will also help
users sleep better, expanding
its wellness capabilities. The
Sleep Sensing technology
provides tailored bedtime schedules and personalized suggestions
developed by a team of sleep scientists and using
guidance from organizations like the American Academy of
Sleep Medicine.
" Compiled after several nights of analysis, these suggestions
point out notable aspects of your sleep, educate
you on why they're important and provide suggestions to
improve, " he notes.
The Sleep Sensing wellness technology is optional and has
privacy safeguards in place. The Google Nest Hub has a visual
indicator on the display to inform the user if the wellness
technology is activated.
The Motion Sense only detects motion, not specifi c
bodies or faces, and coughing and snoring audio data is only
processed on the device - it isn't sent to Google servers,
according to the blog. Users can also disable the microphone
on the Nest Hub if they choose. Users can review their sleep
data and there are no ads placed via the system.
