Review your sleep and wellness

With Sleep Sensing on your Nest Hub (2nd gen), you can view a summary of your sleep and receive personal insights and helpful tips. Once you’ve set up Sleep Sensing, your sleep summary will be available on your display beginning the next morning. With the Google Fit app, you can also view your sleep history over time. 

Sleep Sensing is not intended to diagnose, cure, mitigate, prevent or treat any disease or condition. Consult your healthcare professional for questions about your health. Device placement and nearby people, pets, or noises can cause inaccurate readings.

Sleep Summary

To view your sleep summary, tap your display’s screen and then Wellness and then Your sleep.

Note: For your sleep summary to appear on your Nest Hub (2nd gen), you’ll need to allow personal results and proactive health & fitness results on your display. Web & App Activity also needs to be turned on in your Google account. To receive answers from Google Assistant related to your sleep information, personal results and Voice Match need to be on.

When personal results and proactive health & fitness results are on, anyone with access to your Nest Hub (2nd gen) can review and delete your most recent Sleep Sensing summary and wellness details.

Your sleep

Your sleep summary will show several aspects of your last night’s sleep such as the duration, schedule, and quality of your sleep. When you’ve slept well, each circle in your summary will be aligned and turn purple. Tap Your sleep to view each circle in more detail.

Sleep circles

  • Schedule - View when you got into bed, fell asleep, woke up, and finally got out of bed alongside your planned bedtime schedule.
  • Duration - Review your total time asleep and how that compares to your usual duration or general recommended guidelines. This includes when you went to bed, when you woke up, and if you got up during the night. You can also learn how long it took you to fall asleep to get a feel for how much time you’re actually sleeping when you go to bed
  • Quality - Check how restful your sleep was. This includes when you were sleeping, times you got up, and restless periods. You can compare these to factors that sometimes affect sleep like the temperature in your room, periods of sleep disturbance, and light changes in your room.

Your respiratory wellness

To view your respiratory wellness, from your display’s “Wellness” page, tap Your sleep and then swipe left. Tap Weekly trend to compare your days over the past week.

Your respiratory wellness shows things that can affect your sleep:

  • Respiration rate (RPM) - Measures the average number of breaths you take per minute, and how variable your breathing was in that sleep period. Your RPM range is the top 95% and bottom 5% of the night’s data.
  • Sleep disturbance events - Shows how many times you coughed and minutes you snored.
Note: Device placement and nearby people, pets, or noises can cause inaccurate readings.

Sleep report and personalized tips

As Sleep Sensing gets to know your sleep habits and patterns, you’ll receive personalized insights and recommendations to help improve your sleep. You’ll begin to get these tips after a week of daily sleep tracking.

Your insights and personalized sleep tips will appear on your Nest Hub as they become relevant. Once available, your sleep report and recommended schedule can be accessed by tapping your Nest Hub’s screen when it’s in ambient or photo mode and then Wellness.

  • Sleep tips - These tips contain suggestions and educational content to help improve your sleep.
  • Sleep report - The sleep report contains a summary of insights, education, and tips related to your sleep. Insights are things that Nest Hub noticed about your recent sleep that could be improved. Your report also includes education from third-party sources explaining some reasoning for the insight and tips on how to improve. Sleep reports will be updated when additional personalized insights are available and may not always appear.
  • Recommended schedule - After 14 days of consecutive sleep tracking, you’ll receive a personalized recommendation for when to go to bed and when to wake up. Updating your schedule could help improve your sleep.
