(Relaxnews) – Sleep tracking is a hot trend for quantified-self devotees, but if you can’t be bothered with gadgets and wristbands, try the x12 smart bed. “All you have to do is sleep,” the company says.

Maker of the popular Sleep Number beds, Select Comfort unveiled its new tricked-out bed at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The bed’s sensors measure breathing rate, movement, and heart rate, while displaying all of your sleep data in companion apps for smartphones and tablets. Plus a technology dubbed Sleep iQ rates your slumber and offers tips for improving it.

In addition to being packed with sensors, the bed offers other cool features, such as a Partner Snore button that allows you to raise your sleepmate’s headrest to ease the snoring. Plus it responds to voice commands and features an under-the-bed light for late-night bathroom runs. All beds come equipped with the Sleep Number feature, allowing users to modify the firmness of the mattress.

A queen bed is priced at $7,999.99, with beds set to go on sale February 8.

But what about your pillow? Also debuting at CES, Sleepow is a pillow with an embedded sound machine and mp3 player and also plays tones at slightly different frequencies for each ear to promote relaxation.
