Know Better Sleep with SleepIQ Technology
The x12 bed is the first Sleep Number bed to offer SleepIQ technology – a proprietary, touch-free, non-intrusive and intuitive technology that was developed by Sleep Number and its partner
SleepIQ technology studies SleepIQ score trends over time, and tells each person what level of comfort and support – their Sleep Number setting – ensures their best sleep. Using the journal feature and the SleepIQ data, individuals can track and identify routines that affect their sleep – such as exercise, caffeine and TV – and be empowered to make adjustments to achieve their best sleep.
Ultimate Comfort with Advanced DualAir Technology and FlexFit Technology
The Sleep Number x12 bed provides limitless adjustability and individualization. At the heart of the x12 bed is advanced DualAir technology. Adjustable air chambers and a Firmness Control system allow consumers to easily find their ideal level of comfort and support on each side of the bed – their Sleep Number setting.
Exclusive FlexFit™ technology enables consumers to raise or lower their upper and lower body for ultimate comfort. FlexFit technology also goes far beyond simple articulation and includes a Partner Snore™ feature, several massage settings, under-bed lighting, and a timer that can be set to return the user to a favorite massage or sleeping position, or turns off the lights on their night stand.
Additionally, with the introduction of the x12 bed, Sleep Number is offering an exclusive FlexTop™ mattress design option, which allows each sleep partner to adjust their elevation to their preferred position while keeping a feeling of togetherness.
Finally, the communication platform of the x12 bed brings together all these technologies and provides control through a single, universal remote, or with simple voice commands. The communication platform is designed for future features and software upgrades to be seamlessly pushed to the consumer.
