Everything You Need in a Home Sleep Study
Advanced Tech For At-Home Testing
The easy-to-use, FDA-approved WatchPAT can give a full picture of your sleep health in one night.
• The WatchPAT is FDA and DOT approved. The device is equipped with comprehensive, innovative technology to ensure accurate screening and detection for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA).
• The WatchPAT evaluates sleep apnea using seven different metrics. These include peripheral arterial tone (PAT), blood oxygen level, motor activity, body position, and snoring.
• Our device also measures true sleep time and sleep architecture. The WatchPAT is considered a valid alternative to traditional polysomnography (PSG).
• Our portable device fits comfortably around your wrist much like a watch and won't disrupt your sleep.
• The WatchPAT uses points of contact in your wrist, finger, and neck. Nasal tubes and body straps are not necessary.
• Our device is designed for at-home use. We believe the most accurate results come from a night of sleep in a bedroom environment optimized for your personal needs and preferences.
• Results are available after one night of use. The device sends results directly to your doctor via Bluetooth from your phone.
Who It’s For
• Individuals with undiagnosed sleep apnea who don’t want to spend the night away from home in a sleep lab for overnight monitoring.
• Adults age 18 or over.
• Patients who are waiting for a sleep apnea diagnosis but can’t get a nocturnal polysomnography (PSG) test due to sleep center backlog.
• Anyone experiencing these unexplained symptoms of sleep apnea:
◦ Long pauses in breathing during sleep
◦ Heavy snorts, gasps, or moans during the night
◦ Restless sleep
◦ Headaches, sore throat, or dry mouth in the morning
◦ Frequent nighttime awakenings to urinate
◦ Erectile dysfunction
◦ Chronic fatigue, drowsiness, or excessive daytime sleepiness
◦ Drowsy during the day
• Reach out to us for details about your personalized sleep report. We can also provide instruction manuals, how-to videos, and care instructions upon request.
• If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, one of our sleep coaches will follow up with treatment recommendations.
Instant Access to CPAP Treatment

A Quick and Easy Alternative to Overnight Sleep Studies
Comparing home testing to the dated lab model, the difference is clear.
In-Lab Sleep Study
Spending the night in a sleep lab can be intrusive, uncomfortable, and costly. You may also require multiple overnight stays to receive accurate results.
Home Sleep Study
Our at-home test is designed for quick results. One night of sleep is all your doctor needs to review your sleep patterns and make a diagnosis.
Understanding Our At-Home Sleep Test
Will the sleep test cause sleep problems?
Some people who take our at-home sleep test experience anxiety during the night, which can make it hard to fall asleep and lead to inaccurate results. However, we're confident you'll be more comfortable and relaxed in your own bed than if you participated in an overnight sleep study at a sleep center.
For most people, the test can gather enough information after one night – even if you are nervous and experience sleep disruptions. If you sleep 2.5 hours or less, you should consider retaking the sleep test.
How does the at-home sleep study work?
The WatchPAT features a wrist sensor, pulse oximeter, and chest sensor. The device uses three points of contact – the wrist, finger, and neck – to collect data for seven key sleep apnea metrics.
The device measures central and obstructive sleep apnea events, true sleep time, snoring, breathing rates, oxygen saturation levels, heart rate, your body's position, and how much time you spend in each sleep stage.
Designed for comprehensive results, our sleep test helps your doctor make an informed diagnosis and therapy recommendations. The WatchPAT's sensors send data directly to a doctor via your cell phone's Bluetooth.
How much does a sleep study cost?
If you opt for an overnight study at a sleep center, expect to pay anywhere from $500 to $3,000 for your stay.
At-home sleep tests are much more affordable by comparison. These tests typically cost $170 to $400. The total amount you'll pay depends on your insurance provider, so be sure to check whether the test is covered under your current plan.
How are people tested for sleep apnea?
Anyone seeking a sleep apnea diagnosis has two options: an overnight sleep study at a sleep lab, or at-home test.
Most center-based sleep studies are conducted over the course of one to two nights. At-home tests are faster and more convenient. Keep in mind that both types of tests require a doctor's prescription.
Can you take a sleep test at home?
Yes, you can complete a sleep test without setting foot outside your home. The WatchPAT records data and transmits it to your doctor through your phone's Bluetooth signal. If completed properly, at-home tests can provide enough data for your doctor to provide an accurate sleep apnea diagnosis.
While our test typically records enough data for diagnosing sleep apnea, the results may not be sufficient for diagnosing other disorders such as narcolepsy or restless leg syndrome.
What is the purpose of a sleep study?
Sleep studies are used to monitor your sleep patterns. Doctors use the study's results to diagnose insomnia, sleep apnea, and other sleep disorders.
Do you need a prescription for sleep apnea therapy?
CPAP machines and face masks are federally regulated medical devices in the United States, so you'll need a prescription for these components – both of which are essential for CPAP therapy. You can obtain a prescription by completing a sleep study or test, then receiving a sleep apnea diagnosis from a board-certified physician.
Are at-home sleep tests accurate?
Most at-home sleep tests sold today have an accuracy rate of 68% to 91%. Accuracy depends on whether you are high or low risk for sleep apnea, as high-risk sleepers tend to get more accurate results. Other factors include the type of device you choose for your at-home test, the quality of your sleep on the night of the test, and proper use.
How many times do I need to take an at-home sleep test?
Most sleep experts recommend taking an at-home test one time, though your doctor may suggest taking the test a second time if you experience excessive sleep deprivation during the first attempt. If the results of your at-home test are inconclusive, your doctor may recommend an overnight polysomnography study at a sleep center.
Which disorders does the at-home test detect?
Our at-home test is exclusively designed to test for obstructive and central sleep apnea. As a result, we only recommend the test for people with moderate to severe symptoms of these disorders. If you have a history of cardiorespiratory disease, stroke, insomnia, or hypoventilation should arrange for an overnight sleep study in a lab, rather than take the at-home test.
Is the at-home sleep test covered under insurance?
The amount you pay for your test depends on your current insurance plan, but most providers cover at least some of the cost. Medicare recipients who have met their part B deductible pay 20% of the cost for at-home sleep tests. If your doctor recommends or refers you for a sleep study, contact your insurance provider to learn more about how much of the cost is covered.
What does an at-home sleep test measure?
The test measures different metrics related to sleep patterns used to diagnose sleep apnea. These metrics include your breathing rate, heart rate, sleep position, how often you snore, and how much time you spend in different sleep stages. Your doctor uses this data to evaluate you for obstructive and central sleep apnea.
Who should take an at-home sleep test?
We recommend at-home sleep tests for:
• People who exhibit symptoms of moderate to severe OSA or CSA
• Those who are at high risk for sleep apnea due to their weight, daily habits, and medical history
• People whose doctors recommend they take part in a sleep study for sleep apnea but want a more affordable option than spending the night in a sleep center
People who suspect they have at least one other sleep disorder in addition to sleep apnea, or possibly a different sleep disorder altogether, should consider an overnight sleep study in a sleep center instead of an at-home test. The same is true for people with a history of cardiorespiratory disease, stroke, insomnia, hypoventilation, and other medical conditions that warrant observation during the sleep test.
Does the at-home test diagnose sleep apnea?
The at-home test monitors sleep patterns and records metrics related to sleep apnea symptoms. Our device does not diagnose you – only a board-certified physician can provide a diagnosis. The device sends data directly to your doctor using your phone's Bluetooth. Your doctor can review the results of your at-home test to determine if a sleep apnea diagnosis is necessary, and which type of treatment is needed.
