Fitbit announced this week premium sleep profiles for select device owners to get a deeper understanding of your sleep. If you have a Sense, Versa 3, Versa 2, Charge 5, Luxe, or Inspire 2 device, you should start seeing these new profiles in early July or receive an update around the first of each month thereafter.
To break it down, Fitbit’s sleep profile will analyze a user’s sleep across 10 key metrics each month, calculating trends and then comparing them to what is typical for the user’s age and gender. The hope is that this information can then show users what they can improve in the sleep department.
Fitbit also uses adorable animals to best describe your sleep. For example, there is a bear (a person with a constant sleep pattern who quickly achieves sound sleep), and there is also a hedgehog (falls asleep later and wakes up earlier – a light sleeper). There’s a ton of data to process, so for those who like to track sleep, this is a great bonus to owning a Fitbit.
Naturally, you will need Fitbit Premium for this. It will cost you $10/month or $80/year.
