Do you anxious about your sleep? No more stress about your sleep schedule. Now, you can track your sleep easily with a Fitbit watch. You can enable sleep mode on Fitbit to monitor your sleep time, range, and phase of your sleep. In addition, you can see your weekly and monthly average sleep time. It includes hours slept, sleep score, sleep schedule, and sleep stages. It is possible to enable or disable the sleep mode feature at any time on your Fitbit device.

  • Adjust Noise sensitivity
  • Track your sleep stages.
  • Reduce the screen brightness

How to Detect Your Sleep Duration?

Fitbit monitors your sleep with the help of your heart rate variability (HRV). Your heart rate differs when you take a nap. There are three phases of sleep that will be tailored to your Fitbit device, and they are listed down.

REM Sleep: Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep occurs when you have a deep sleep. You will dream when you sleep deeply, and your eyes will move fast, which increases your heart rate.

Deep Sleep: Indicates that you have a good sleep for a few hours.

Light Sleep: When you take a power nap. It means you took a light sleep for a short period of time.

Sleep Mode Vs Do Not Disturb

Sleep Mode on Fitbit disables the call and text message notifications, dims the screen light, and turns off the Auto-On Display. It will not cause your Fitbit device to vibrate.

Do Not Disturb (DND) possesses the same function as Sleep Mode. The only difference between the DND and Sleep Mode is that sleep time monitoring. But DND doesn’t monitor your sleep. Keep in mind that you cannot enable both DND and Sleep Mode at the same time.
