Last night was my first night and it did track it. I have had other trackers where you place the time that you'll be sleeping. This of course is more advanced, as the device is tracking your heart rate variability(HRV). Looks like something we use to see on TV is now on our wrists. #besafeoutthere

Fitbits are a great option if you want an insight into your sleep habits.
All Fitbit trackers except the Fitbit Zip monitor your sleep patterns, detecting how much time you spend awake, restless, and asleep.
If you own a newer version of Fitbit with a heart rate sensor, you get an even more detailed sleep report, showing light, deep, and REM sleep time.
These Fitbits use your movement and heart rate information to estimate how long you spend in light, deep, and Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep each night.
But what if the device on your wrist is not tracking sleep properly? Or it’s inconsistent or even inaccurate?
Does your Fitbit say you’ve only had 2 hours of sleep when in reality, you’ve know you’ve had 8? Or perhaps your sleep stages or sleep score are not showing?
If that sounds like your Fitbit and the Fitbit app, we’ve got some great troubleshooting tips that should get your Fitbit tracking your sleep accurately AND consistently!
Try these tips when your Fitbit isn’t tracking sleep
- Sync your Fitbit to the app.
- Clean your Fitbits sensors.
- Try wearing your Fitbit in a different position.
- Check your Fitbit battery level.
- Change sleep sensitivity settings.
- Don’t select “going to bed.”
- Check heart rate settings, especially if you don’t see your sleep stages.
- Remove and re-add Fitbit.
- Restart Fitbit.
- Factory reset.
Understanding how Fitbit detects your sleep
Fitbit recognizes that you are sleeping only when your body is resting without any significant movements for an hour.
Once your body passes that hour, your Fitbit begins gathering data about the quality of your sleep.
For the first few hours (less than 3), your Fitbit categorizes your sleep into three categories: restless, awake, or asleep.
Once you pass the 3-hour threshold, it starts recording different types of sleep–called your sleep stages. These stages include light, deep, and REM (rapid-eye movement.)
Your Fitbit app then uses those sleep stages to calculate a sleep score.
Not all Fitbits support sleep staging
Only Fitbits with heart-rate sensors can record your sleep stages.
Additionally, you must wear these Fitbits on your wrist/arm and set them to wrist mode to collect your sleep stage information.
However, both the Fitbit Charge HR and Fitbit Surge are exceptions and can’t record sleep stages, even though they include heart rate sensors.
If your Fitbit does not have a heart rate sensor or is the Charge HR and Surge, it can only record when you are asleep, restless, or awake.
Sync your Fitbit with the app
It’s important to sync your Fitbit after waking up to see your sleep statistics in the Fitbit app.
So if you’re missing your previous night’s sleep information (or even a couple of night’s data), make sure you sync before thinking something is wrong. It may not be!
You can manually sync your Fitbit by tapping the Sync Now button in the Fitbit app’s device menu.
Clean Fitbit sensors
Cleaning your Fitbit often solves the problem since it removes any oil, dirt, or other grime that may impede your Fitbit sensors from gathering data.
Only use fresh water and a soap-free cleanser (like Cetaphil) to clean your Fitbit. Soap often leaves a residue that often results in worse performance!
Additionally, to minimize the potential for damage to your Fitbit, avoid direct contact with any lotion, including sunscreen or insect repellent sprays.
Skin lotions are also thought to reduce the effectiveness of the sensors. The same holds for tattoos.
So don’t place the sensors in your wrist or arm areas with tattooed skin or in areas where you recently applied lotion.
And always wipe (or wipe and clean) your Fitbit, both back and front, after a sweaty workout since sweat also leaves salts and oils that may prevent your sensors from accurately recording data.
Try wearing your Fitbit in a different position
Try wearing your Fitbit on your non-dominant hand and the inside of your wrist rather than the outside.
Some people report that wearing their Fitbit above the wrist (at least an inch above the wrist bone–that’s about 2 fingers above the wristbone) solved their sleep tracking problem.
Regardless of your Fitbit position, always wear it in a snug (but not tight!) position while sleeping.
Wear your Fitbit on your wrist
Some Fitbit models, like the Inspire 2 and the original Inspire, allow you to wear your Fitbit in a clip.
Unfortunately, when you wear your Fitbit in a clip and set your Inspire to on-clip mode, the heart rate sensors automatically turn off.
That means that your Fitbit in the clip-position can only record sleep in the three general categories of awake, restless, and asleep since it doesn’t record any heart rate data.
So for folks who wear their Fitbits in a clip or pendant when sleeping, try wearing it on your wrist and see if that makes a difference.
When you wear your Fitbit on your wrist and set it to wrist mode, it automatically detects when you sleep and records your sleep stages using your heart rate information.
That’s why you must check that your Fitbit is set to on-wrist and not on-clip mode in the Fitbit Settings app.
To change your Fitbit Inspire to the on-wrist setting
- On the Fitbit Inspire Series, press and hold the button for about 2 seconds to open your Fitbit’s Quick Settings.
- Scroll down past the settings for battery level, screen wake, notifications, and tap on-clip to change it to on-wrist.
- Press the button again to return to the clock face.
Please note that only the Fitbit Inspire and Inspire 2 support on-clip. The Fitbit Inspire HR does not offer this setting–it is always in on-wrist mode.
Love wearing your Fitbit in a clip?
If you prefer to wear your Fitbit in a clip during the day, make sure you place your Fitbit on your wrist and change its setting to on-wrist to capture sleep data when you prepare for bedtime.
If you don’t care about your sleep stage information, then you can continue to wear your Fitbit on a clip throughout the day and night.
Just remember that your sleep information will only include time spent asleep, awake, and restless.
Check the Fitbit battery level
Is the Fitbit battery critically low?
If your battery is critically low, your wearable may have switched off sleep tracking during the night to preserve its battery.
Ensure your Fitbit is sufficiently charged before you go to bed.
If time is short, charge your Fitbit for 20-30 minutes before you go to sleep–this should provide enough battery to last through the night.
Change sleep sensitivity settings
There is a sleep sensitivity setting in the Fitbit app. The default option is the normal setting.
The normal setting only counts significant movements, such as rolling over.
The sensitive setting results in your device recording nearly all movements as time spent restless or awake.
How to change your Fitbit’s sleep sensitivity settings
- Open the Fitbit app and tap the Today tab.
- Tap your profile picture or icon, then scroll down to the Settings heading
- Find it just after the wording to ‘+ Set Up a Device, and Shop Fitbit.
- Choose Activity & Wellness, usually the first one on that list.
- Select Sleep from the list of options.
- Scroll to the bottom and choose Sleep Sensitivity.
- Choose Sensitive instead of Normal.
- If Sensitive is the current option, try Normal.
For older FitbitOS versions
- Open the Fitbit app and choose the Accounts tab.
- If you don’t see accounts as a tab, choose the Today tab, and tap your profile icon or picture.
- Tap Advanced Settings.
- Tap on Sleep Sensitivity and choose from the available options.
Don’t tell the Fitbit app you are going to bed
All wrist-based Fitbits automatically sense when you are sleeping when wearing your Fitbit to bed. So there is no need to tell the Fitbit app you are going to bed or starting sleep.
To get a detailed reading of the sleep stages, do not select Begin Sleep Now inside the Fitbit app when you go to bed.
Also, don’t tap on I’m Awake when you get up.
For whatever reason, when you tap these notices in the Fitbit app, your Fitbit does not reliably track your sleep stages. Why? We don’t know!
However, taping these app features still tracks your sleep in terms of time awake, restless, and asleep.
We recommend that you allow your Fitbit to automatically track your sleep–that seems to be the best way to get all your sleep data, including sleep stages.
Plus, you don’t have to do anything–so it’s one less thing to do before sleep.
Check heart rate settings
Your Fitbit combines heart rate and movement data to develop a more accurate picture of your sleep cycle.
And seeing sleep stage information depends on your Fitbit getting consistent heart rate information.
When your Fitbit cannot access consistent heart readings, you get a sleep report that only shows the basic information–time asleep, awake, and restless.
Additionally, you won’t see sleep stage info when you sleep for less than 3 hours.
While Fitbit turns heart-rate tracking on by default, it’s a good idea to check that you didn’t accidentally turn it off.
Also, occasionally the Auto setting does not work–so we suggest you set your heart rate using the ON position rather than auto.
There is no way to turn off heart-rate tracking on Fitbit Sense or Fitbit Versa 3, so you can skip this one.
To turn on your Fitbit’s heart rate tracking
- On your Fitbit, open the Settings app > Heart Rate and if off, tap to turn the setting On. If it’s already on, switch it off, wait a few seconds, and switch it back on. Not all models include this setting.
For Fitbit Alta HR and Fitbit Charge 2, turn on heart-rate tracking in the Fitbit app
- Open the Fitbit app and tap the Today tab.
- Tap your profile icon or picture.
- Choose your Fitbit device from the list.
- Tap Heart Rate and tap to turn the setting to On. If it’s already set to on, switch it off, then sync your device. After syncing, switch it back on and sync again.
Remove and re-add your Fitbit
To set up your Fitbit as a new device, go to the Account section at the top right corner of the Fitbit app and select the option that says, “Set up a new device.”
Follow the on-screen instructions to add your Fitbit as a new device.
Restart your Fitbit
A restart often solves these types of Fitbit problems.
For most newer model Fitbits, go to Settings > Shutdown (or About > Shutdown) > Yes
You can also manually restart your watch by pressing and holding the button(s) for 10 seconds until you see the Fitbit logo on your Fitbit’s screen, then release the button(s).
To restart a specific model, see our page. Need to restart or reset your Fitbit device? Learn the steps
For older Fitbit models, try these restart steps
- Connect your Fitbit to its charging cable and make sure it’s plugged in and placed properly.
- Hold down the button for between five & ten seconds. You will usually see the Fitbit logo appear or the screen flashes.
- Release the button or buttons.
- Disconnect the tracker from its charger and turn it back on if necessary.
If the other options don’t fix your Fitbit sleep tracking issue, you can try a factory reset.
This wipes all of your stored data and returns your Fitbit to its factory settings.
Most models have different factory reset methods, so again, look at this article for exact steps.
Unfortunately, most older Fitbits that came out before 2016, like the Fitbit Flex, Surge, and Blaze, cannot be factory reset.
Want more information about your sleep quality including snore information?
Fitbit offers additional insights into your sleep data, including snore and noise detection and a more detailed analysis of your sleeping heart rate for Fitbit Premium subscription members.
The plan currently costs about USD 10 per month or USD 80 per year.
For sleep analysis, you also get a thorough breakdown of your sleep score along with personalized recommendations.
Plus, premium members get data on how restorative their sleep is via a Restoration score. You also get a report on any snoring and the noise of your sleeping environment–all using the built-in microphone on your Fitbit!
Plus, Fitbit premium also offers guided programs that you use with your Fitbit device to get better sleep each night.
I hope that this article has helped you to fix your Fitbit sleep tracking problem.

How to Track Sleep with Your Fitness Tracker
Many fitness trackers keep on tracking even after you've hit the sack, providing you with information about how long you slept, how many times you woke up and your overall sleep quality. But some trackers first need to be placed into sleep mode before they can collect this information. Here's how to track your sleep with some of the most popular fitness trackers:
- There is a button on one end of the tracker. Press and hold this button to switch from active mode to sleep mode.
- You'll know the device is in sleep mode when the status light changes to show a moon and the device vibrates.
- To take the device out of sleep mode, just hold down the button again until the active-mode light (a green, flowerlike symbol) comes on.
- Tap the device quickly, for about 2 seconds.
- You'll know the device is in sleep mode when the screen shows two dimming lights and vibrates.
- To exit sleep mode, tap the device quickly for about 2 seconds.
- Hold down the button on the One for about 2 seconds.
- You'll know the device is in sleep mode when it vibrates and displays a timer (which starts timing your sleep).
- To exit sleep mode, hold the button for about 2 seconds.
- Tap the device three times to activate the sleep mode.
- You'll know the device is in sleep mode when the lights around the edge of the device turn on sequentially (so they appear to radiate upward) three times.
- In addition to sleep, the Shine can also track other activities, such as cycling and swimming, which you track with "activity tags." If you have selected one of these activities in the app under "activity tag," you have to re-select "sleep" in order to track your sleep.
- The Misfit Shine automatically detects the end of an activity.
The Basis does not have a sleep mode. It automatically detects when you're sleeping and when you wake up.
Nike+ Fuelband SE
The original Nike+ Fuelband does not track sleep, but the newer Fuelband SE can track your sleep time. Here's how it works:
- With the Nike+ Fuelband SE, you can track the start and stop of your sleep by starting a "session" for sleep.
- To start a session, hold down the button on the SE until the display says START.
- Now press that same button again.
- You will know a session has started when the display says 3, 2, 1, GO!
- To end a session, hold down the button until the display says END, and then press the button again.
Withings Pulse O2
- There is one button on top of the tracker, which you press to see your metrics, such as steps taken and feet climbed. Each press of the button shows a different metric. Quickly press the button several times until the display screen shows a picture of a heart on the left and a crescent moon on the right.
- Touch the picture of the moon.
- The word "ON" will appear. Turn on sleep mode by sliding your finger left across the screen.
- You'll know the device is in sleep mode when the display says "Good night!"
- To exit sleep mode, press the top button twice. The word "OFF" will appear. Turn sleep mode off by sliding your finger right across the screen. The display will say "Morning!"

@toddsdonald Hi and Welcome - this may sound strange but I have had occasions when fitbit resets some of my stats for no reason - ie miles to km and stone - kg I am wondering if your tracker time is correct and the correct time zones are still set on your settings page - it maybe worth a look,
are all other stats behaving as they should do?
you may need to do a few restarts to sync all data back to normal link and details as follows
- Plug the charging cable into the USB port on your computer or any UL-certified USB wall charger.
- Clip the other end of the charging cable to the port on the back of the tracker. The pins on the charging cable must lock securely with the port.
- Make sure the button on your tracker is aligned with the button opening on the charging cable. You’ll know the connection is secure when the tracker vibrates and you see a battery icon on your tracker’s display. Your Charge 2 will begin charging.
- Press and hold the button on your tracker for four seconds. When you see the Fitbit logo and the tracker vibrates, this means the tracker has restarted.
- Unplug your tracker from the charging cable.
if no-one else comes up with another suggestion that may help I can only suggest contact support if those given here do not work (they may ask you to repeat a few of the suggestions above) so they can tick them off of there troubleshooting list
customer support phone number will appear once the office is open (usually 0800 - 1900 Mon-Fri and 1000 - 1700 weekends in the UK)
This is for the UK but should you need to change country scroll to the bottom and look for United Kingdom with a down arrow next to it and click on the arrow now you can select your relevant country and the page will refresh
hope this helps

There are numerous studies showing that the quality of our sleep affects all aspects of our health and well-being.
Moreover, on this site, I’ve always emphasized the importance of getting the right amount and quality of sleep. It has been proven, time and again, that doing so improves our mood and boosts our bodies’ ability to fight off sickness.
Recently, tracking our sleep has become widely popular.
Monitoring how long we sleep and the quality of our slumber has become almost an obsession with many people. This is largely because many wearable fitness trackers have now added sleep-tracking features alongside step counters, heart rate monitors, and food logs.
These monitors come in different forms, including bedside monitors, wearables, and non-wearables (the kind you put under your pillow or mattress).
Today, we are giving you a list of the five best sleep trackers available on the market, which provide information about your sleep cycle and how well you’ve slept during the night.
But first, let's examine the benefits of tracking your sleep, and the different kinds of sleep trackers that are available.
Don't have time to read the entire review?
If you're a busy person who doesn't have time to read this entire review, we've simplified everything. Here is a table that provides you with a quick rating of the best sleep trackers.
What You Will Learn
What Are the Uses of a Sleep Tracker?
On average, adults need seven or more hours of sleep every night. However, many are unable to meet this basic need. About 70 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder, which is one possible reason why there is an increased interest in fitness trackers that can also monitor your sleep patterns.
Sleep trackers provide you with insight about your sleep patterns so you have a better understanding of whether or not you’re getting the right amount of sleep. If you're not, you may need to modify your pre-bedtime habits to encourage a better quality of sleep, and make sure that you are getting enough shut-eye every night.
Now, you're probably wondering, “How do sleep trackers work?” Sleep trackers work by monitoring how much you move throughout the night while you are in your bed, thereby measuring your sleep quality. Using accelerometers to track your movements, the tracker analyzes whether you’ve had a peaceful or restless slumber.
There are also sleep trackers that can monitor how much time you’re spending in each stage of sleep. These trackers can then use the information to schedule your alarm to go off at a time when they detect you’re in a light stage of sleep and can be woken up more easily.
By analyzing the times you are asleep and awake, you can get information about how much time you spend being asleep, which can alert you to possible sleep-associated issues such as sleep apnea.
Some trackers can even help you create a better environment for sleeping by assessing your surroundings at night. This may include the lighting or the temperature of your room, which can have an impact on your sleep quality.
Now that you know what a sleep tracker can do for you, how do you know which one will work best for your needs? Let's look at some factors you should consider when shopping for a sleep tracker.
Your Guide to Choosing the Best Sleep Tracker
First, you need to know the purpose of monitoring your sleep. Are you using a sleep tracker because you have a difficult time falling asleep? Do you wonder if you spend enough time in the REM stage?
If you’re looking to improve the quality of your sleep based on what your tracker shows you, make sure it offers a detailed view of your night's activities in its companion app, including your sleep duration, quality, stages, and external factors.
Look for sleep trackers that have the ability to analyze your sleep environment so you can check for patterns in the results to pinpoint some possible causes of your sleep issues. It could be that there is too much light or noise around you and those things are keeping you up at night. If it is a simple fix to get more sleep, it is definitely worth knowing the causes of your struggles.
You may also want to choose a less cumbersome design. Since you will literally be going to bed with this device, make sure that the design is not large or heavy, especially if it’s a wearable device.
Even with a non-wearable sleep tracker, there will be some element that is around you, which could make you aware of its presence. You may not be able to fall asleep if you are wearing something that is especially bulky.
Make sure your sleep tracker comes with a companion app. This way, you can customize the settings according to your sleep-tracking needs. You will also be able to see a more detailed and extensive explanation of your sleep.
You can view your data and, often, the progress that you are making toward your sleep goals (if your tracker can monitor both). You will usually find other benefits that come with the companion app, such as features to engage with other people using the app so you can keep each other on track, as well as rewards for reaching your goals.
It is also best to have a sleep tracker with syncing capabilities. By having a tracker that can sync with all of your tech gadgets (like your smartphone and tablet), you will be able to have easier access to the data about your sleep habits.
Finally, you will want to consider the price. In addition to knowing your goals, it’s equally as important to know your budget. The majority of sleep trackers range anywhere from $50 to $300, typically increasing in price depending on the number of features that they offer.
If you are looking for a comprehensive tracker that will give you a wide range of advanced features, including automatic sleep detection, a smart alarm, and a heart rate monitor, it will probably be more expensive than some of your more basic trackers.
However, if you want to be able to track your sleep and activity for a long period of time, it may be worth it to spend some extra money to buy a tracker that meets your needs. However, it is important to remember that just because a tracker is expensive doesn't always guarantee that it will have better performance. Likewise, a more affordable product is not always low in quality and features.
Now let's look at some of the best options that are on the market today.
5 Best Sleep Trackers
1. Fitbit Charge 2 Heart Rate + Fitness Wristband, Black
Despite the fact that this product has been on the market for a while, it remains the best overall option because of its various features and high quality—especially if money is not an issue for you. This sleep tracker measures and records the amount of time you spend awake, as well as your light, deep, and REM stages of sleep. Plus, it is one of the most consistent trackers on the market, which is key because you can be sure that the results you see every morning are correct.
This sleep tracker gives you the needed guidance and coaching to get a better night's sleep. It continues to add new insights to keep it up-to-date and competitive with other products on the market. The sleep stages feature provides you with a helpful breakdown of your sleep phases, as well as a benchmark against other users in your demographic.
The Fitbit Charge 2 also comes with a wearable design, which is an added bonus. Its battery life is about five days, which is good compared to other options. It has a black-and-white OLED screen that allows you to adjust the brightness.
You can easily read this screen outdoors if you are using this tracker for fitness purposes as well as sleeping. The display activates when you rotate your wrist to look at it, which conserves its battery life. Because it is not water resistant, you do need to take it off when you get in the shower.
You have three size options for the interchangeable band, so this sleep tracker will fit most users. It has a large display, allowing you to see the information on it easily whenever you glance down.
- Comfortable to wear.
- Offers reliable information.
- Measures stages of sleep.
- Relatively expensive.
- Does not have a GPS function.
- Gesture recognition sometimes does not work.
2. Letsfit Fitness Tracker
This option is the best affordable sleep monitor and wearable fitness tracker for every member of the family. It is a highly adaptable piece of technology that is great for everyone. You don’t have to have a gym membership to benefit from wearing this tracker, as there are a lot of variables that it keeps track of during the day. The main purpose of this product is to inform users about a wide variety of statistics about their everyday life to help them improve their overall health.
There are several unique and useful features included with the Letsfit Fitness Tracker. It offers a heart rate monitor, sedentary alerts to let you know when you should get up and move around, multiple sport tracking options, and smart notifications that remind you of important events, send notifications about texts and incoming calls, and provide you with social media alerts without you having to get out your phone.
And, of course, it offers sleep monitoring software that will keep track of and record the different stages of sleep that you go in and out of, based on your heart rate. It will also let you know how many times your sleep is disturbed and how often you wake up. This will give you all of the information that you need to know, whether you think you are getting a good night’s sleep or not.
Another benefit to this sleep tracker is the fact that it is waterproof. While you probably don't want to take it swimming, you don't have to worry about any damage happening if you wash your hands with it on.
This sleep tracker is available for a small percentage of the price of some high-end fitness trackers, but it offers all of the same things, making it a valuable device. It is constructed with the everyday user in mind, meaning it is both durable and easy to use.
- Great for men, women, and children alike.
- Affordable option.
- Syncs with a helpful app.
- Some users question the accuracy.
- Uses a 24-hour clock, which is confusing for some users.
- It is hard to change the time zones on this device.
3. Lintelek Fitness Tracker
This is the best sleep monitor if you are looking for value for your money. It is ideal for those who are on a tight budget. This product features 14 different sports modes to choose from, making it a versatile option for anyone who also wants to use the fitness features. Its simple, low-profile design allows users to wear this tracker every day with any type of outfit. It also makes it easy to sleep in since it is not bulky or cumbersome.
This product comes with a mobile app, called VeryFitPro, which has a professional look to it. The app can connect to Google Fit, meaning if you wanted your workouts and sleep to sync with MyFitnessPal, you can easily do that. Many products in this price range do not have this capability.
The watch and strap are lightweight and comfortable. You can easily wear this sleep tracker all day and night without noticing it. There is really no learning curve once you get this watch either, and the app is of a high quality.
- Comes in a variety of colors.
- Has a GPS tracker.
- The heart rate monitor is inconsistent.
- The app uses a lot of phone battery.
- Difficult to keep connected to Bluetooth.
4. Beautyrest Sleeptracker Monitor
This option is the best non-wearable product that tracks your sleep quality and provides precise data from your sleep cycle. The company behind this product promises to provide you with the tools you need to understand the quality of your sleep every night, and how you can improve it.
The Beautyrest Sleeptracker has three parts to it: a central processing unit that plugs in and remains near your bed, two movement sensors that you put between your mattress and your box spring that plugs into the CPU, and an app for your smartphone.
The movement sensors are about a quarter inch thick, and they are surrounded in high-density foam, making them undetectable when you are asleep. As long as your mattress is at least a queen size, these will track the sleeping patterns of two sleepers, and they can tell the difference between the two people, so you don't have to worry about your movements interfering with your partner’s.
It is quick and easy to set this sleep tracker up, and, once it is installed, it is essentially invisible. The sensors have adhesive backings, ensuring that they stay in place. The CPU connects to your Wi-Fi to upload each night’s data to its servers, which then generate reports that you can see in the app and also have emailed to you.
This tracker gives you an accurate sense of the quality of sleep you got the night before in terms of the three main types of sleep: light, deep, and REM. Each morning, within one hour of the last person getting out of bed, you can view your sleep report, which will tell you your sleep score out of 100.
This score is found by combining your total sleep time with the amount of time you spent in each stage of sleep, in addition to factors such as the number of times you woke up during the night. While getting a perfect score of 100 would be great, scoring 80 or higher means that you got very good quality sleep that night.
The app even asks you questions such as how stressful your day was, if you exercised, or if you consumed alcohol or caffeine, which are all factors that can impact the quality of your sleep. After gathering this information over a period of time, the app can make connections between your daily habits and the quality of sleep you are able to get.
- Offers precise data about your sleep cycles.
- Can be used by two people.
- Gives you helpful facts about the impact of your lifestyle and environment on the quality of your sleep.
- Expensive when not on sale.
- If you get in bed, it assumes you are asleep. It cannot distinguish from when you are awake but lying still and when you are sleeping.
- Some users have a hard time connecting it to Wi-Fi.
5. Apirka Fitness Tracker HR
This is the best option for its design and price. It comes equipped with the latest HR sensor to ensure accurate heart rate monitoring. It also offers a multi-sports mode, so you can get accurate results if you use this tracker when you exercise.
You can automatically track your sleep quality with this device, as it detects your sleep and analyzes your sleep quality from 9:00 pm to 8:00 am. It can detect when you are in a deep sleep and a light sleep, or if you are awake. It also allows you to set an alarm to wake you up using silent vibration, which is smooth and comfortable.
- The band plugs directly into a USB charger, so you do not need a cable.
- Alerts you when you have an incoming call.
- Some users find the screen to be too small.
- Not completely accurate.
- Screen scratches easily.
Final Thoughts on Best Sleep Trackers
Before wrapping this up, we have to mention that there are no consumer sleep tracking devices on the market that can measure your quality of sleep as accurately as polysomnography, which is what doctors rely on to diagnose serious health conditions that are related to sleep, such as sleep apnea.
Polysomnography is performed in a sleep lab, under highly controlled conditions. It requires users to have sensors attached all over their bodies. While it is uncomfortable, it is still the gold standard for measuring sleep on a medical level.
