You can use your Fitbit tracker to see how many hours you sleep and better understand the quality of your sleep. See How do I track my sleep? for more information on sleep tracking.

To track your sleep with Fitbit Alta, simply wear your tracker to bed. When you wake up, sync your tracker to see last night's sleep stats on the dashboard.

To track your sleep with Fitbit Blaze, simply wear your tracker to bed. When you wake up, sync your tracker to see last night's sleep stats on the dashboard.

To track your sleep with Fitbit Charge, Fitbit Charge 2, or Fitbit Charge HR, simply wear your tracker to bed. When you wake up, sync your tracker to see last night's sleep stats on the dashboard.

To track your sleep with Fitbit Flex, simply wear your tracker to bed. When your Flex syncs in the morning you'll see last night's sleep stats on your dashboard.

If you prefer, you can also start and stop sleep mode manually. Manual mode lets us provide one additional stat (time to fall asleep), but otherwise manual and automatic sleep results are the same. To use manual sleep mode:

  1. Tap your Flex rapidly for one to two seconds when you go to bed.

    Your Flex will vibrate and display two slowly dimming lights, which lets you know sleep mode has started. When sleep mode is on the Flex will alternate two blinking lights back and forth. Note that you can't check your goal progress while the tracker is in sleep mode.

  2. To end sleep mode when you wake up, tap your Flex rapidly for one to two seconds until it vibrates. It will flash all five LED lights three times and show a brief spinning light pattern to confirm that sleep mode is off.
  3. Sync your Flex to see last night's sleep stats on the dashboard.

To track your sleep with Fitbit Flex 2, simply wear your tracker on your wrist to bed. When you wake up, sync your tracker to see last night's sleep stats on the dashboard.

  1. Place your tracker into the sleep wristband and affix the band around your non-dominant wrist.
  2. Once you are in bed and ready to fall asleep, press and hold the tracker's button for several seconds. You will see a stopwatch begin to count, and the other tracker icons will blink, indicating that you are in sleep mode.
  3. When you wake up, hold the button down for several seconds to stop the sleep recording. Your tracker's icons will stop blinking, indicating that you've exited sleep mode.

Once you exit sleep mode, your tracker will resume displaying daily totals. Sync your tracker to see your sleep stats on the dashboard.

To track your sleep with Fitbit Surge, simply wear your tracker to bed. When you wake up, sync your tracker to see last night's sleep stats on the dashboard.
