The Beddr mobile application works in conjunction with the Beddr SleepTuner, an ultra-compact, hospital grade sensor worn on the forehead as you sleep to measure:
Blood Oxygen Levels
Disrupted Breathing Events
Impact of Sleep Position on Breathing
Sleep Quality Ratings
Includes Integrated Sleep Journaling
Bluetooth Connectivity - Free App (iOS ONLY)
The Beddr SleepTuner App permits you to record multiple nightly sleep assessments and gain deep insights into the quality of your sleep and the impact of sleep position and sleep hygiene on your breathing and overnight oxygenation. Each nightly sleep assessment collects thousands of data points to deliver and report trends over time as you tune your sleep position, and sleep habits. The Beddr SleepTuner App is the only consumer product available that measures stopped breathing events across multiple nights. Our system is compatible with CPAP or mouth guards and may be used to detect disrupted breathing while you sleep. If the Beddr SleepTuner app reports a potential issue, you’ll have an early warning that you may want to talk with your doctor about adjusting your CPAP mask or settings, refitting your mouth guard or making additional lifestyle changes to improve your sleep health.
Thanks for using Beddr!
Wishing you Beddr Sleep,

Ratings and Reviews
The beddr device is more expensive than just buying an app, but it is the only way as far as I know to get actual oxygen and sleep apnea monitoring on a consumer device. The device itself is amazingly small and light so you don’t even feel it. It allows you to test whether different sleep positions affect your breathing. The one area that needs improvement is more product information on clinical testing of the device and how best to use it, so you have to do some of your own research. Traditional sleep doctors only do one night of testing, so this can be a valuable addition.
Very good device
If you suspect you have sleep apnea but don't want to start with the hassle of a sleep study and insurance and contacting a doctor's office and missing work etc etc, this is the best device I know of to purchase. The SpO2 tracking alone is great, the positional information is useful. I have no way of independently confirming the breathing events data but the SpO2 data appears correct, and by itself would be enough to strongly indicate or rule out sleep apnea.
The app is not perfect, do not expect a perfectly polished product. The data visualizations are pretty bad. And it's somewhat annoying that the data is not stored locally, making the app a little slow.
But so far for me everything works. Most importantly in just one night or a few nights you should learn whether you have sleep apnea, and you can proceed from there. For that alone the device is worth it - nothing else matches for convenience and accuracy that I know of.
Some Garmin devices have pulse ox measurements but I found that inferior.
Constant data loss
I think Beddr it self is a great idea, and the product itself is not bad. So far I’ve used it for a few nights but was only able to get 1 night to properly show results. On all the other nights the data just gets lost which is extremely frustrating since you have to wear the device on my forehead (terrible choice of position for those of us who have a spouse). The data either takes hours to upload or I get a “network connectivity error”. My WiFi is transferring at 28mbps and I even tried other networks with the same problem. This is clearly a programming issue that needs to be fixed otherwise the device is rendered useless. I hope the dev team can get their act together very soon.
