I've been thinking about tracking the quality of my sleep lately since I've only been tracking the quantity.. and was wondering if anyone else out there tracks their sleep.
Do you find the data it provides helpful? Or does it give you data that you don't know what to do with.
What do tracker do you use? Fitbit? Zeo?
I have an iphone and know there are a few apps you can use where you just place the iphone under your bed sheets... but I don't like the idea of sleeping with the cellphone next to my head..
Tim Ferriss just wrote an article here, where he liked the Zeo a lot.
Any input would be helpful,
thanks in advance

My wife and I both use Zeo's. IMO, it's about the best one out there, since the others just tend to use an accelerometer to measure if you move or not. The only issue I have with the Zeo is it rates it sleep score heavily on how much sleep you get, but it does give some great insights into the quality. I've been using it for about 6 months, if you have any more specific questions, let me know.
Some key things I tested:
Can Blue light blocking glasses (Gunners) improve the quality of sleep of someone uses electronic devices before bed and reads on one in the bed?
Does supplemental magnesium improve the quality of sleep?
Does using "Brain wave apps" help to stimulate deep sleep?
Does napping in the afternoon reduce time needed for sleep at night?
P.S. I had positive results with all of the above, have fun experimenting!
