You can use the Fitbit app to fine tune your sleep history. For more information about sleep tracking including how to see your sleep data, see How do I track my sleep?

What should I do if my sleep start and end times are incorrect?

Most Fitbit trackers automatically start and stop your sleep log. If you feel the automatic sleep detection is inaccurate, you can use the app to start and stop sleep tracking instead.
  • Fitbit app for iOS
    1. From the Fitbit app dashboard, tap the sleep tile. This is the tile that says "How did you sleep?" or, if you tracked sleep the night before, shows how many hours and minutes you slept.
    2. Tap the + icon in the top right corner and tap Begin Sleep Now. You can minimize the app and sleep will still be tracked.
    3. When you wake up, tap I'm Awake, then tap View Summary to see a summary of your sleep. 
  • Fitbit app for Android
    1. From the Fitbit app dashboard, tap the sleep tile. This is the tile that says "How did you sleep?" or, if you tracked sleep the night before, shows how many hours and minutes you slept.
    2. Tap the + icon in the top right corner and tap Begin Sleep Now. You can minimize the app and sleep will still be tracked.
    3. When you wake up, tap I'm Awake, then tap View Summary to see a summary of your sleep. 

Why does my sleep graph say I was asleep when I wasn't?

Although trackers that autodetect sleep are designed to know when the tracker is off your wrist, occasionally they may record a sleep log when you aren't actually asleep. You can delete this sleep log on your dashboard.

Why does my sleep graph say I was awake when I wasn't?

Tossing and turning during sleep can occur during an unconscious state; however, it does not indicate total rest. If you feel that the reported number of times awake is excessively high, go to the Sleep Sensitivity setting to see if your sleep tracking mode is set to sensitive. A normal setting may be more appropriate if you are looking for a more general overview of your sleep patterns.

How do I edit or delete a sleep log?

Regardless of which method you chose to log your sleep, you can always edit the sleep log to better reflect your time asleep. For instructions choose a section below. Note that you may want to adjust your sleep sensitivity setting also.

    2. Tap the sleep log you want to edit.
    3. Tap the three dots in the top right corner and find an option to edit your sleep log.
    4. Adjust the time you went to sleep or the time you woke up. Don't forget to save.

    3. In the top right corner, tap or click the crayon icon to adjust the time you went to sleep or the time you woke up. Don't forget to save.
