How do I view my sleep quality and stats?

You can view your sleep logs on the Fitbit app dashboard on the Sleep tab. The time asleep represented in the Fitbit app is calculated by subtracting your time awake or restless from the overall tracked time. For example, if you slept eight hours, but awakened two times for 15 minutes each, the time asleep will show 7 hr  30 min. You can further investigate your effective sleep quality by tapping the sleep log and viewing detailed information about your sleep. Your sleep quality is based on whether you were asleep, restless, or fully awake. 

For instructions on how to view detailed sleep data, choose a section below.

  • Fitbit app for iOS
    Tap the expander arrow in the top right of your sleep pattern graph to view more detailed data for a specific period of time.
