Basis is excited to announce Advanced Sleep Analysis – the most in-depth sleep assessment in the health tracker market – to be released later this month with version 2.0 of our mobile and web app. We are also introducing the new 2014 Carbon Steel Edition which integrates hundreds of improvements to the hardware and incorporates our most advanced technology yet. Both will debut and be demoed at our CES booth from January 7 – 10.

Watch our overview video and the get the details below.


Leveraging our Body IQ™ technology, Basis is the only health tracker that comprehensively captures every aspect of your sleep: REM Sleep, Deep Sleep, Light Sleep, Toss-and-Turn, Interruptions and Duration. To help you understand and improve your sleep quality, Basis provides a personalized sleep dashboard with a summary of these metrics, an easy-to-understand Sleep Score, your benchmark for sleep quality, and rolling averages for key metrics so you see your progress over time.

Our online and mobile apps help you visualize your sleep data: REM Sleep, Deep Sleep and Light Sleep – as well as Interruptions and Toss-and-Turns.


Basis automatically detects every phase of sleep that is critical for maximizing your mental and physical performance. Based on cutting-edge sleep science, your sleep chart or hypnogram shows the frequency and duration of each phase of your sleep – REM Sleep, Deep Sleep and Light Sleep – as well as Toss-and-Turn, Interruptions and Duration.

REM Sleep, or Rapid Eye Movement sleep, primarily renews the mind by playing a key role in learning and memory. The more REM sleep you get, the more likely you will wake feeling refreshed and ready to be the best version of yourself throughout the day.

Deep Sleep is how the body repairs itself and build up energy for the day ahead. Deep Sleep plays a major role in maintaining your health, stimulating growth and development, repairing muscles and tissues, and boosting your immune system.

Light Sleep is typically what constitutes the majority of your sleep and allows your body to transition into REM or Deep Sleep.

Toss and Turn and Interruptions are good indicators of your restlessness or restfulness. Some people toss and turn more while others turn less. Interruptions, significant breaks in your sleep, can be caused by many factors – a snoring partner, a late night bathroom trip or just an inability to stay asleep.


Basis provides a breakdown of each phase of sleep – what it means and how much you should be getting.


Basis provides you with the tools to easily understand your quality of sleep, make changes and see your progress over time.

Sleep Score: To help you easily evaluate your sleep quality, Basis provides a personal daily Sleep Score built around your individual data.

Benchmarking: The Basis dashboard displays a rolling average of key metrics – your Sleep Score, Toss and Turn and Interruptions –  to help you benchmark your progress.

Weekly Sleep Report: To help you chart your progress on a weekly basis, Basis sends you a Sleep Analysis Report that includes Duration, Toss and Turn, and Interruptions.

Healthy Habits for Sleep: Our unique Healthy Habits system enables you to take small actions like sticking to a consistent bedtime to improve your sleep quality over time.

Your Sleep Score is your personal benchmark for sleep quality. Benchmarks let you track your progress over time.


In developing our Advanced Sleep Analysis, the Basis Science team partnered with researchers at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Veterans Administration (VA) and the Northern California Institute of Research and Education (NCIRE). Basis was benchmarked against consumer devices as well as medical grade devices to provide the most comprehensive picture of your sleep among health trackers.

Advanced Sleep Analysis will be release on January 21st with Version 2.0 of our mobile and web apps. Basis B1 users will  have access to Advanced Sleep Analysis upon this release. The ability to upgrade the B1 band demonstrates Basis’ unique ability to provide new features without requiring new hardware purchases.
