Hack your sleep routine with the SleepSmart Intelligent Adjustable Pillow. This pillow is designed specifically for side sleepers to be comfortable and cozy – with easy to adjust height support.

With this information, it can also guide you with coaching for your best night’s rest. In addition, the SleepSmart Pillow features a silent alarm. Using vibration, the pillow gently wakes you so you wake up on time feeling refreshed. Of course, the SleepSmart Pillow is as comfortable as it is smart. It uses premium materials to maintain support for years to come. Inside is a cloud support system. With this, you can fine-tune both the height and firmness of the pillow.

Thanks for the updates, looking great. Think that this will be a high quality pillow. Always appreciate quality ahead of speed!

Guessing that the messaging does not work.
I'm sorry but is there a way for me to cancel the pledge?

Thanks for the question Wayne. We are planning to release the app just before the pillow ships, so at the moment it's not available to the public outside of beta testing - but beta testing is also connected to pillow testing. We are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel - we hope all will be available soon.

Great update, thank you. I am very impressed with the effort that you are putting into quality control. Far, far better to have delays and get that right. Now is the time to avoid leaks and so on. I have seen too many campaigns rushed only to have quality issues. Well done. Thank you!

Hi Ioseba, Sorry about the lack of response. I hate that as well!
I did respond back on Feb 6th, but I now see that it was sent to no-reply at kickstarter.
Usually, I don't respond so my bad, In that email, I want to know better understand why. I tried to copy the email, but KS doesn't allow that in this post. I can send you directly if you like since we would never ignore our backer. This project has been challenging and we've been working so hard, investing our time, money and effort to overcome many issues, so it was disappointing to loose our supporters. We had a guy that lost his job and of course it was no issue in refunding his money. Fortunately, he quickly replied that he got another job and that he didn't need the refund.

Hi Judith, No worries regarding heat build up since the SleepSmart pillow has a comfort layer that is vented and breathable. The cloud support system is adjustable through the use of a bladder, it uses very soft, stable and durable materials in contrast to what typical bladders are made of (PVC). This is going to be the most comfortable pillow ever especially if you are a side sleeper that settle for the right amount of support.
Judith Weber
Review from Kickstarter
I'm worried about two things with the pillow now . 1heat I live in Florida & items that have a lot of air bladders etc. Usually have some sort of plastics or polymers that create heat to hold air in. How that is solved is going to be a major point in the ultimate sales success of this product once its on the market. People will reject anything that builds up heat around their face / head & neck as they try to sleep.
2. An air bladder can often be unyielding to a migraine sufferer. ( me) making my head & neck even more uncomfortable. Not the only uncomfortable pillow,just things that worry me about the ultimate success about this pillow,for me especially. & ultimately commercially.

Will another survey being coming out in regards to our shipping address? I need mine adjusted but I've not seen a survey come out for this project (aside from the one regarding preferences for the app/materials).

Hi Jae Son, will we be receiving refunds to our credit cards for the $20 shipping credit for filling out the survey? I saw that my card was charged the full amount including shipping. Thanks.

Hi SK, Sorry to see you go, and thank you for the insight on the cancellation. We value getting feedback when we can and appreciate you for giving it. Wish we could have been given the chance to clear anything up with you. To clear up a few things. You are correct - shipping did come in high - we used shipping estimates from international carriers and were locked into those at time of KS launch. I was not aware that we could create a new reward level to fix this - this is the first I've learned of this. The $20 credit towards shipping DOES NOT require any purchase at all. It only requires the backer to fill out the survey providing us with feedback on the product so we can make it the best possible product for all. So far nearly 400 people have completed it which is nearly $8,000 in refunds for shipping. We listened to our backers and found a win-win. The link to the survey is in the updates so all have access to it. You are correct that there are adjustable pillows on Amazon. We've tested them all. That's why we made this pillow. It's hard to get the perfect adjustment having to iterate. This is the only pillow that gives you a large amount of adjustability and the ability to do it with your head on the pillow. The app has a "no pillow" mode. When the pillow is not connected and you hit the "start tracking" button - it records time and gets your input on quality. This way you can still track Total Sleep Time while away, while napping, while on vacation, etc. Thank you again for the feedback.

Hi all, I decided to cancel my pledge. Since this project already reached the goal, my wish goes to all backer that they will be satisfied with their perk when they got it. Here's my thought, just for input:
- Shipping cost is too high. I know the project owner promised "$20 credit toward shipping", if you read that carefully meaning that "you have to buy another product" at their store to get that credit. I'm thinking how many of the backers will take that (the owner can keep that $20 times foolish backer. Rough counting, if only 2% of current backer took that, the owner will keep about 8 thousand bucks in their pocket).
I know they can't change their perk on kickstarter, but what they can do is adding another perk with different shipping cost, so current backer can move their pledge. Instead, they're making a move for their own sake rather than backers.

There are some project that charge or had free shipping for the US and charge a ridiculous amount for shipping with other countries. My solution was to use shipping service (ex. shippito, etc). You just send it to US address then they ship it to your country, they have many shipping options. If you don't rely on your local post you can always select DHL/etc which cost less that this project ridiculous shipping cost. If your country has reliable logistic, you can always choose the lowest price. - The main point of this project is I guess for side sleeping.
Well, I think I could find more variations on Amazon when I search for an adjustable pillow. Mostly are cheaper too.

- Another thing is measurement/app. Well perhaps for someone who always sleeps regularly this is a choice.
For me, sometimes I took nap at the office, something I sleep on the sofa rather than the bed.
You don't take your pillow to your office, won't you? something like a smart band, a ring (motiv perhaps), or any solution with eye mask perhaps better fit my needs.

Good luck.

There already many iOS/Android (free) app to detect/record snoring.
Are there any advantages in your system?
Jae Son @ GoSmart
Review from Kickstarter
@Sahey - snoring is an incredibly diverse and individual thing. It's hard to say. Sometimes snoring can be corrected with proper support. Other, more medical concerned snoring, often my be rooted in a deeper issue. Our system helps with proper support and enables you to detect and record snoring to have real data to understand if the snoring is cause for concern.

Hello. I just did a pledge for a "couples" package. It strikes me a little odd that it's more expensive to do it this way than to do two orders of one early bird. It looks like the opening pledge is twice the single including shipping, with another shipping charge added. Either way, we're looking forward to some better sleep!
Michele Molinaro
Review from Kickstarter
How is it possible that the shipping costs are so elevated (69$)?!? They're almost the price of the early bird itself ( 100 $). Never seen a thing like that; probably i will cancel my pledge if the shipping cost will remain elevated.

Hi can the pillow help with snoring?

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Kerri, That's really interesting! I'll message you - I like to learn more individually about this.
TJ
Review from Kickstarter
Since we're paying shipping upfront through kickstarter, how does the credit work? There does seem to be a way to reduce the pledge upfront to take advantage of it. Having a credit after the fact is of no use if you have to spend more money to take advantage of it.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi @creator, I am a backer club member and pledged the $139 for the couples pack. If I want two pairs, can I just double my pledge and get 4 pillows? Would the shipping value change? Thanks

I'm a restless sleeper and go through a new pillow every 4-6 months. Is this durable?
Jae Son @ GoSmart
Review from Kickstarter
Thanks for the feedback and ideas Leslie and LS Smith. We will have a big sit down at the end of the campaign to review all the feedback and ensure the best possible product goes into production.
Leslie
Review from Kickstarter
I would prefer AA batteries to be used instead of a rechargeable pack which will wear out over time. If I want rechargeable, I can buy rechargeable AA's to put in, which can be replaced.
LS Smith
Review from Kickstarter
I have had several bladder inflatable contour pillows and I would recommend that the bladder be rectangular in shape and gusseted so that the fully inflated bladder does not cause the pillow surface to be uneven...the effect of that is to make the surface of the pillow push up against the head while any area away of the bladder is softer...making the resting head angle more than horizontal. You also might consider segmenting the bladder (like a Select Comfort mattress) so that the weight of the head does not push all of the air toward the ends of the bladder. LSS

Can we add $100 to the super early bird pledge to get 2 at super early bird pricing? Seems shipping is same for 1 or 2. Thanks!
Jae Son @ GoSmart
Review from Kickstarter
@Carlos - great feedback. We had the same reaction to "air bag" when we started down the development path. Typically they can feel hard, or balloon, or have funny sounds. We iterated with materials, fills, lining and seal materials, internal structures, and more. In the end we as a team feel that we found a combination that is quite possibly the most comfortable air bladder under the head to lay on. It has none of the characteristics mentioned and I think you will be happy - really pleased that you will give it a go! As for Batteries - there will be an opportunity to influence design when we send out the product insights survey shortly. We went through a lot of debate here - and landed on AA for safety. There are concerns about rechargeable batteries and fires, as you may have seen in the news more lately. At the moment we are aiming for AA batteries (super easy to change and only once every 8+ months), however if the people want rechargeable, then we'll do our best to make it happen. The pillow is pretty cool - I'll message you and we can explore your desires for cooling.
