What sleep-related information is provided with different wearables?
All the accumulated sleep data, the reported, the subjective, and the measured and calculated sleep metrics are analyzed to provide the users with an understanding of their sleep difficulties and of sleep-related habits that may interfere with their sleep. This is the first step in engaging people with a personally-tailored sleep improvement program based on the state-of-the-art approach to sleep problems: CBT-I

I tracked my sleep and got an error message in the Daily Data
An error message in the Daily Data occurs when the app did not receive the information it needed to complete the sleep analysis. If the steps below don’t help or you have any concerns, please contact us. To prevent this from happening again, try these steps:

The total time spent awake during the night after initially falling asleep.
The time when the recording starts: this is the time when the “Start” button is pressed with the intention of going to sleep.
This screen displays the sleep data scores available from a single sleep session.
Presents graphic and numeric summaries of your sleep, including objectively measured sleep structure and stages when available, and sleep-related data for a period of 24 hours.
Allows viewing your sleep and relevant sleep-related daytime data in 24 hours segments ( called daily view) and in their time-dependent context ( time view)
Your personal rating of your stress during the preceding day.
The percentage of deep sleep between falling asleep and waking up.
The total time spent sleeping; this excludes the time it took to fall asleep and the time spent awake during the night.
An earlier-than-expected morning awakening.
The percentage of time spent asleep out of the time between ”Bedtime” and “Wake up”, that represents the intended sleep time.
Sound recordings of noises detected during the night.
The time it takes to fall asleep.
To get more accurate results we recommend you use a Sleeprate-supported heart or wearable device with or without heart rate variability capabilities.

The time the alarm clock is set and indicates the scheduled wake-up time.
The percentage of light sleep between falling asleep and waking up.
The reported nap time during the preceding day.
A measure of the overall stress tracked during your nighttime recording. Available only for wearables with instantaneous heart rate. This is an individually determined score that may change, with higher values indicating higher stress.
The percentage of REM sleep between falling asleep and waking up times.
The Assessment runs over the first 7 consecutive days of the program, includes a few questionnaires and as many as possible nights tracked, but not less than 3. It allows for gathering sufficient data to detect your sleep deficiencies, understand their causes and design ways to start building a personalized sleep-improving program.
The average hourly number of brief and unnoticed intrusions of wakefulness into sleep.
The Sleeprate app will guide you step-by-step and at your own pace through a series of sleep-improvement training challenges, on a path to better sleep and well-being.
Your personal rating of the sleep quality when you wake up in the morning.
****COMING SOON**** This feature provides a flexible wake-up time (within a 20-minute window) to ensure that you wake up at the optimal moment during your sleep cycle. Note that this is available only when certain wearable devices are used to track sleep.
****COMING SOON**** Recordings of snoring detected in the bedroom during the night.
Your rating regarding daytime stress.
Presents graphic and numeric summaries of your sleep, including objectively measured sleep structure and stages when available, and sleep-related data for multiple days with zoom in and zoom out capabilities. These features allow to review sleep trends of time.
The time-lapse between going to bed at night and getting up in the morning.
This is how your sleep is tracked to catch the complexity of this important component of your life. In fact you provide valuable information that can’t be captured accurately otherwise. First you answer a few questions about your day. Then when ready for sleep you start tracking your sleep. To accurately measure your time falling asleep, we recommend to start tracking when not before you are going to bed with the intention to sleep. You can use an activity or fitness monitor to obtain objective-measured rof your sleep. Using the app alone, without a wearable, allows valuable insights into your sleep quality and quantity , habits that influence your sleep and daytime feelings related to sleep, such as sleepiness, mood or stress. We recommend you answer the questions as your day winds down, that way all that is left to do when you get in bed is click on the “Start Tracking” button.
The percentage of awake time during the night. This includes the time it took to fall asleep and the time spent awake during the night.
Does Sleeprate provide sleep stages?
Yes, when used with a compatible heart rate tracking device, Sleeprate provides a thorough analysis of your sleep, including sleep stages: Deep Sleep, REM Sleep, Light Sleep and sleep interruptions.
How do I know if the Sleeprate results are accurate?
Sleeprate uses validated algorithms to provide sleep analysis regarding falling asleep time, sleep efficiency, sleep stages, sleep disruption, and sleep-related stress. The details provided depend on the data collected by available wearables (heart rate, movement). Subjective or perceived sleep data are also required. The reason for this is simple: while we are asleep, we are disconnected from the environment, and our memory is quite impaired. Thus, we do not always feel that the measured data are in line with our perception of the time it took us to fall asleep, or for how long we were awake at night. We may remember we were checking the time, or that we were wide awake at night, however, we do not have an accurate estimation of time asleep.
Usually, people who do not have sleep problems believe they slept longer than they really did, and people who have sleep issues tend to perceive their time spent awake longer than the measured wakefulness time. Some discrepancies may be due to limitations/errors in measurement, more so when there are technical issues causing data loss. Understanding the origin of the discrepancies between our feeling regarding sleep and the objective metrics is important, as this provides valuable information on the sleep problems experienced and helps with solving them.
If the results you get are not what you were expecting, or if you have any problems with the sleep analysis, be sure to let us know so we can investigate the issues and find out what corrections might be needed.
