UPDATE:BEWARE! After finding I was unable to log in any more, and several exchanges with "Customer Service," NOW when I reply to and old customer service, I receive "customerservice wasn't found at mysplus.com" Message rejected. As I said before, they are being sneaky about dropping all support for the S+.
You may wonder, as I did, why I would want to monitor my sleep? I was interested in noting how many disruptions I had at night (since it is hard to remember them), and also the amount of REM, deep, and light sleep stages I experience. I have found that by committing myself to a few months of sleep monitoring, that I am more focussed about sleep issues and less stressed by the times when I don't fall asleep quickly, or remain asleep throughout the entire night.
The S+ monitors is a rather neat technological device. It measures room temperature, light and noise levels via some internal sensors. However, to measure sleep levels, it contains a very sensitive motion sensor, and I mean sensitive! If I lightly tap my finger on the mattress, I can see each tap register on the S+ monitor. During the night, the monitor registers the rise and fall of your chest cavity, regardless of your sleeping position. How it knows whether you're asleep, or experiencing different stages of sleep is part of the technology that Resmed has collected over years of experience.
I have normally not had any problems pairing the device to my iPhone SE, which must be done each night. The green led on the monitor will fade out after the session begins. You can also let the monitor play one of several soothing noises to help you sleep. The noise patterns (e.g. waves on the shore) will match your breathing pattern after a few minutes. I find this very relaxing and usually fall asleep within 10 minutes.
If, for some reason you need to get out of bed during the night, you don't have to adjust the monitor. It knows when you have left and returned.
Since your phone is paired via Bluetooth to the monitor, it must be on all night. I just plug it into the recharger and wake up with a fully-charged phone in the morning. During a sleep session, the screen of the phone fades to almost complete darkness and doesn't disturb your sleep.
The S+ asks you some simple questions before each sleep session to gauge your caffeine and alcohol intake, exercise and stress levels. I have found that for me, these factors don't correlate with my sleep quality, but for others they may.
Upon waking, I end the sleep session by pressing a button on the app screen. The app will show you your sleep score immediately, and show where you may have had some disruptions or deficiencies in the type of sleep you experienced. Going to their website, you will see more in-depth discussion about sleep factors, and how your sleep varied throughout the night, as well as temperature, noise, and light levels. The data is shared with the Health app on your iPhone. If you have an Apple Watch, there is an S+ app that provides some great color graphs of your sleep history data, brief insights to your sleep patterns, and 'Relax Daytime' function that will play a soothing sound through your phone speakers to help you take that afternoon nap you crave. Nice job on the watch app! Resmed will also send your via email, a full report of your sleep history for the prior month.
I'm very impressed with Resmed's dedication to this technology. They have provide me with some useful tips about sleep quality and how my experience matches that of others my age. I'm not sure how long I will be monitoring my sleep, but it really isn't difficult to do, and I think the data and graphs are interesting to analyze.
If anyone knows a way to solve the problem for the item to work, I am more than happy to know.
If it can't even tell when I'm awake or not, how can I trust that it can differentiate between light, deep, and REM sleep?
I was hopeful that with ResMed's background in sleep devices they would have the ability to make a reliable device. Unfortunately, false information is worse than no information.
