A Wareable news report indicates that Beddit has released an upgraded version of its sleep monitor, which it says is the first sensor to require no manual interaction from the user.

The upgraded Beddit Smart can automatically track your sleep, without having to be told when you’re in bed, which goes a long way to taking the fuss out of sleep tracking.
