Less Sleep But Higher Score Than Before Zeo 76

Day 20 of 30 of Writing Challenge

Last night was another fun night with the Zeo mobile sleep tracker.

Here is the data from last night:

Here is the sleep graph breakdown:

I’ve been monitoring my sleep for the past 3 nights to see my sleeping habits. In 3 nights I’m convinced that this device is doing something special if not reading my brain waves. I’ve found it to be at least relatively accurate in terms of when I was awoken and when the sensor was off (past 3 nights at some point during sleep the sensor has fallen off). If what they say about REM sleep is when you dream then I can corroborate the data measured from last night’s sleep. The smart alarm on the Zeo woke me up around 11AM. I remember waking up from a dream, snoozing the alarm, and going back to sleep. If you look at the graph data you’ll see when this happened and you’ll also see how I was in REM stage, woken up, and then back in REM.

What’s interesting about the data is seeing how even though I got 40 minutes less sleep than the first night (had 6:51 minutes) how I had a higher score thanks to longer time in deep sleep and almost the same amount of REM sleep. The best part was I was only woken up 3 times during the sleep. Most of which was due to the alarm in the morning. The end result is I felt pretty rested throughout the day (especially when you compare it to the first night’s sleep).

We’ll see how tonight goes. Here are some factors that could effect sleep:

  • had 12 oz can of green tea
  • had a 16 oz iced black tea un-sweetened ice tea
  • no exercise
