We all understand just how important sleep is in your physical and mental development. Being able to maximize this is so critical, but how can it be done? There are many sleep trackers out there that promise this, whether it is on an app, smart watch, or another medium, there are plenty of options, but how effective are they? In this article, we will begin to discuss sleep trackers and how efficient they are.
One of the biggest things sleep trackers promise to provide is to track sleep quality. This is done through a variety of ways primarily through movement tracking and sleep stage estimation. Through apps this is mainly done through sound tracking, detecting snoring and if you get out of bed. Smart watches can take better reads as they can track movement more accurately as well as including other sensors such as heart rate monitoring.
Algorithms take estimates on how long you spend in each stage of sleep based on the time you spend asleep and how often you are moving or making sound during the period. From a data perspective, apps remain something lacking in terms of data accuracy compared to smart watches.
