How does my Fitbit device automatically detect sleep?

Wrist-based Fitbit devices and Google Pixel Watch series automatically detect your sleep when you wear your device to bed. We recommend wearing your device in a snug wristband while sleeping; don’t wear your device in a clip or pendant accessory.

When your body is completely at rest and you haven’t moved for about an hour, your device records that you’re asleep.

What sleep information does my Fitbit device track?

If your device doesn’t track heart rate, you see your sleep pattern in the Fitbit app. Your sleep pattern includes your time spent awake, restless, and asleep. Restless sleep indicates that you moved in your sleep, like tossing and turning. If your device detects excessive movement—enough that restful sleep would not be possible—your device records time spent awake.

Fitbit devices that track heart rate (except Charge HR and Surge) also track sleep stages. For more information, see What should I know about Fitbit sleep stages?

How do I see my sleep information?
Sync your device each morning to see last night's sleep stats, including sleep score, on your wrist or in the Fitbit app.

How is my time asleep calculated in the Fitbit app?

Your time asleep is calculated by subtracting your time spent awake and restless from your overall tracked sleep time. For example, if you slept 8 hours but woke up 2 times for 15 minutes each, your time asleep would be 7 hr 30 min.

To learn more about your time asleep in sleep stages, see What should I know about Fitbit sleep stages?

What's my sleep profile in the Fitbit app?

Understand and take steps to help improve your sleeping habits with a monthly sleep profile, available to Fitbit Premium members using one of these devices: Charge 5, Charge 6, Inspire 2, Inspire 3, Luxe, Pixel Watch series, Sense, Sense 2, Versa 2, Versa 3, or Versa 4.

On the 1st of each month, you receive a breakdown of your sleep with 10 monthly metrics, along with a sleep animal that reflects long-term trends in your sleep behaviors.

This feature is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition and should not be relied on for any medical purposes. Consult your healthcare professional for questions about your health.
How do I see my sleep profile?

Each month, wear your Fitbit device to sleep for at least 14 days out of the month. Note that the more sleep you log, the more closely your sleep profile will reflect your patterns. View your progress toward receiving next month’s sleep profile on the Sleep tile  below your sleep graph.

On the 1st of the month, check your sleep profile in the Fitbit app or on your Fitbit device (Sense 2 and Versa 4 only).

Fitbit app
  1. From the Today tab , tap Your sleep profile.
  2. Scroll down to see a breakdown of your monthly sleep metrics, including how your metrics compare to other Fitbit users. Metrics include:
    • Sleep schedule variability—how much your sleep schedule varied from day to day
    • Sleep start time—on average, the time you usually went to sleep
    • Time before sound sleep—on average, how long it usually took you to fall soundly asleep
    • Sleep duration—on average, how long you usually slept
    • Deep sleep—on average, how much time you spent in deep sleep

How can I use my Fitbit device to detect snoring and noise levels while I sleep?

With a Premium subscription, turn on the snore and noise detection feature to allow the microphone on your Fitbit Sense or Fitbit Versa 3 to track noise, including snoring from you or someone next to you. By analyzing noise information every few seconds, your device can track the overall noise level of your surroundings and check for snoring throughout the night. When you wake up, your nightly results are summarized in a report.

To turn on or turn off snore and noise detection:

  1. From Today tab  in the Fitbit app, tap the Sleep duration tile.
  2. Tap the 3 dots in the top right  Settings.
  3. Tap the switch next to Snore & noise detect. When you turn on snore and noise detection for the first time, follow the on-screen instructions.

To see your snore and noise report:

  1. Wear your Fitbit device to sleep. Snore and noise detection doesn’t analyze previous nights’ sleep. You receive your first report the day after you turn on the feature.
  2. When you wake up, open the Fitbit app on your phone. From the Today tab  , tap the Sleep duration tile.
  3. Swipe to the bottom of the page and tap the Snoring & Noise tile to view your Snore & Noise Report. Your report shows the amount of time your device detected snoring and a chart of the noise level throughout the night.
    • The amount of snoring is categorized as:
      • None to mild (less than 10% of the total time you were asleep)
      • Moderate (10-40% of the total time you were asleep)
      • Frequent (more than 40% of the total time you were asleep)
    • The noise level chart shows the volume of your sleeping environment in A-weighted decibels (dBA), which measures the relative loudness of sounds to the human ear. A dBA of 0 doesn’t mean there’s no sound, but that it’s not audible to the human ear. For example, a soft whisper is 30 dBA and a coffee grinder is 70-80 dBA. Your overall noise level is categorized as:
      • Very quiet (30 dBA or lower)
      • Quiet (30-50 dBA)
      • Moderate (50-70 dBA)
      • Loud (70-90 dBA)
      • Very loud (90 dBA or higher)

Note that if your device runs out of battery during the night, the noise level chart will be missing some data.

To delete snore and noise data:

  1. Visit the Manage your Fitbit Data page in your web browser.
  2. In the Snore & Noise Detect section, select the start date and end date of the data you want to delete Delete.
  • This feature impacts your device’s battery, so we recommend charging your device to at least 40% before going to bed.
  • If there’s too much background noise, your device’s microphone can’t pick up snoring. For best results, don’t play white noise or other ambient sounds during sleep.
  • Your device isn’t able to identify whether snoring comes from you, someone sleeping nearby, or even a pet.
  • You must wear your Fitbit device during sleep to collect snore and noise data.
  • Your sleep must be at least 3 hours long in order to receive a Snore & Noise Report
  • We only use the microphone to register noise level and snores. We don’t save any audio recordings.
  • This feature is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition and should not be relied on for any medical purposes. It is intended to provide information that can help you manage your well-being. If you have any concerns about your health, talk to a healthcare provider.
How do I set or change my sleep goal in the Fitbit app?
For instructions, see How do I track my health and fitness goals with Fitbit? Note that the CDC recommends adults get at least 7 hours of sleep each night (source).
How do I set a sleep schedule in the Fitbit app?

Set a sleep schedule in the Fitbit app to help you meet your sleep goal and maintain consistent sleep patterns. You can set either a bedtime or a wake-up time target, or set both targets.

If you meet your target by going to sleep or waking up within 30 minutes of the target, a star appears in the sleep schedule graph. You won’t see a star If you set both bedtime and wake-up time targets but only meet one.

How does Fitbit estimate how much sleep I need?

If you have 5 or more sleep logs, your sleep goal is estimated based on an average of these logs. Your wake-up time target is estimated based on the time you typically wake up each day, and your bedtime target defaults to the time you should go to sleep in order to meet your sleep goal.

If you have fewer than 5 sleep logs, you can provide an estimate of how much sleep you get on a typical night, and your sleep goal is set based on this estimate. You must manually set your bedtime and wake-up time targets.

To manually set or adjust your sleep goal, see How do I set or change my sleep goal in the Fitbit app? To manually set or adjust your bedtime and wake-up time targets, see How do I set my bedtime or wake-up time targets?

How do I set my bedtime or wake-up time targets?

  1. From Today tab  in the Fitbit app, tap the Sleep duration tile.
  2. Tap the 3 dots in the top right.
  3.  Tap Time Asleep Goal, Bedtime, or Wake up Time to set or edit your targets. 
How do I set a bedtime reminder in the Fitbit app?

Set a bedtime reminder in the Fitbit app to help you maintain a consistent sleep schedule. When it's time to wind down for bed, you receive a notification on your phone. On certain Fitbit devices, you can also see a bedtime reminder on your device.

To start, you receive bedtime reminders on Sunday through Thursday (common work or school nights). To change which days you receive a bedtime reminder:

  1. From Today tab  in the Fitbit app, tap the Sleep duration tile.
  2. Tap the 3 dots in the top right, and then tap on Settings.
  3. Under bedtime reminder, tap the switch next to Reminder.
  4. Set the time and frequency.

To see a reminder on your Fitbit device, make sure notifications from the Fitbit app are turned on. For instructions, see How do I get notifications from my phone on my Fitbit device?

Can my Fitbit device log a nap?
Your Fitbit device detects and records naps that are at least an hour long.
What's the difference between the normal and sensitive sleep setting?

For devices that record sleep patterns instead of sleep stages, you can set your device to track sleep in a normal or sensitive mode.

In normal mode, when you make significant movements like rolling over, your device records time spent awake. This setting is appropriate for most users. In sensitive mode, your device records nearly all movements as time spent restless or awake. This setting may be helpful if you wake up feeling tired even though your sleep history shows sufficient rest.

To change your sleep sensitivity setting:
