Fitbit’s sleep tracking features are already some of the best in the wearable industry, but the Google’s company has decided to raise the bar even higher with a minor upgrade. A new feature called Sleep Profile is now rolling out to Premium subscribers and promises to provide even more detailed information about the quality of your sleep. The new sleep profile for Fitbit Premium members dive deeper into sleep analytics by looking at information over a month to identify specific patterns. The Sleep Profile offers three main functions: monthly sleep analysis based on ten key sleep statistics, Sleeping Animal, and education and guidance.
The Monthly Sleep Analysis now provides analysis of ten key sleep metrics, double the number since launch. The new stats are shown in a new way to highlight monthly trends, including the new ones such as ‘time for a good night’s sleep’ and ‘nights with a long awakening’. The ten metrics related to monthly sleep analysis are very important because they each monitor a unique aspect of sleep to provide an accurate assessment of sleep quality.
Moving on to Sleep Animal, this is something Premium members receive every month. It’s a way to reflect your sleeping style over the past month. Currently there are six Sleeping Animals and each represents a different type of sleeper.
Finally, ‘education and guidance’ is the third key feature of the new sleep profile. Its role is to help users better understand their overall sleep and sleep hygiene so they can focus on areas that need improvement.
If you already have Fitbit Premium (10/month), you get the new Sleep Profile feature for free, but you need one of the compatible wearables: Fitbit Charge 5, Fitbit Luxe, Fitbit Inspire 2, Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Versa 3, or Fitbit Versa 2. The first sleep profile will be provided to Premium members the week of July 4.
