So I got a bunch of cool things for my birthday and they all seemed to follow the theme of “health and fitness.” (go figure, right?)
The first thing was a FitBit.
It’s a whiz-bang pedometer-plus! It will track your movement (walking and running mainly) automatically, and then, if you want to spend the time, you can enter your food and use it as a food diary too.
But here’s the feature I think is super cool: If you wear it to bed it tracks your sleep! I wore it last night and when I docked it this morning it told me that:
I went to bed at 10:20 PM
It took me 13 minutes to fall asleep.
I was awake 5 times in the night (and I thought I only was awake once to pee.)
I was in bed for 6 hrs and 14 minutes.
My actual sleep time was 5 hrs and 47 minutes
My sleep efficiency was 97%
In addition, there is a bar graph that shows my sleep pattern so I can see exactly the times when I was asleep and when I was supposedly awake.
I’m having fun with this!
