The Financial Times reports that Apple has bought a Finnish company called Beddit, which makes a sensor that tracks your sleep. It’s an interesting move, not least of all because the biggest rumor about watchOS 4 involves sleep-tracking technology. I have a hard time imagining that the company’s going to sell an Apple-branded sleep tracker, but it’s certainly not impossible. Seems more likely that this is a talent acquisition, though there might be other assets for Apple to gain.
Either way, between this and word that Apple is heavily investigating a way to track glucose levels, it looks like we’ll continue to see a heavy push from the company into the health arena.
