What’s my Fitbit sleep score?

Your sleep score helps you understand your sleep each night so you can see trends in your sleep patterns. Studies show getting enough high-quality sleep can positively affect your energy, activity, mood, weight, and more (source).

Your overall nightly sleep score is based on your heart rate, the time you spend awake or restless, and your sleep stages.

Note that you must see sleep stages to see sleep score. For more information, see What should I know about Fitbit sleep stages?

How is my sleep score calculated in the Fitbit app?

Your overall sleep score is a sum of your individual scores in sleep duration, sleep quality, and restoration, for a total score of up to 100. Most people get a score between 72 and 83. Sleep score ranges are:

  • Excellent: 90-100
  • Good: 80-89
  • Fair: 60-79
  • Poor: Less than 60
Duration: Time asleep and awake How much you slept. The more you sleep, the better your score.
Quality: Deep and REM sleep How much time you spent in deep and REM sleep. The more time you spend in these sleep stages, the better your score.
Restoration: Sleeping heart rate and restlessness How relaxed you were during sleep. A high sleeping heart rate or too much tossing and turning lowers your score.
What's restoration in the Fitbit app?

Restoration provides insight into how restful your sleep was. This part of the score is based on your sleeping and resting heart rates and how much time you spent tossing and turning. You receive a higher restoration score when your sleeping heart rate is lower than your daytime resting heart rate.

To see a detailed breakdown of your restoration score in the Fitbit app, purchase a Fitbit Premium subscription. For more information, see What should I know about Fitbit Premium?

What's my sleeping heart rate in the Fitbit app?

Your sleeping heart rate, which is your heart rate while you’re asleep, is often lower than your resting heart rate. For more information about resting heart rate, see How do I track heart rate with my Fitbit device? Factors such as caffeine, alcohol, stress, illness, or other actions can impact your sleeping heart rate (source).

To see your sleeping heart rate in the Fitbit app, purchase a Fitbit Premium subscription. For more information, see What should I know about Fitbit Premium?

What's the difference between resting heart rate and sleeping heart rate?

Your resting heart rate is the number of times your heart beats per minute when you are still and well-rested. Your resting heart rate is estimated each day. Your sleeping heart rate is detected continuously throughout the night.

If I edit my sleep log in the Fitbit app, will my sleep score change?
