Fitbit Adds Sleep Tools To Fitness Trackers

Fitbit has released a set of sleep tools for its fitness trackers to help users improve sleep consistency, the company said.

According to the company, the new Sleep Schedule feature helps guide users to get a more consistent pattern of sleep with personalized goals based on users’ sleep data to achieve optimal amount of sleep each night, customized bedtime and wakeup targets to establish sleep consistency, reminders to stay on schedule and a sleep schedule history to chart progress.

“What’s great about the new Fitbit Sleep Schedule feature is that it looks at your sleep data from your Fitbit device you’re wearing day and night, analyzes it for patterns and creates a personalized schedule just for you,” said Tim Roberts, evp/interactive, Fitbit.

According to the company, these tools are the first in a series of new sleep features being developed in collaboration with Fitbit’s new panel of leading sleep experts.

Available now for the free Fitbit app for Android, iOS and Windows devices, the new Sleep Schedule feature works with all Fitbit activity and fitness devices that automatically track sleep.
