Latest Fitbit update encourages you to be an adult and get to bed on time


Getting sleep is something that some of us take for granted, while others wish and hope for a good nights sleep. It can be a pain pulling yourself away from something to get to bed at a decent hour, and that’s where the latest update to the Fitbit app looks to help you out.


The latest update brings some improved sleep tracking features that will not only hound you to get your bum to bed, but also track your sleep to help determine the best time to actually get to bed. Fitbit published an extensive blog piece in regards to why a good nights sleep is so important for everyone.

According to Fitbit’s sleep experts, adhering to a consistent sleep routine is one of the most important things people can do to improve their sleep: “If you’re constantly changing your sleep routine, it can have the same effect as giving yourself jetlag because you are continually changing your circadian rhythm, also known as your internal clock, which can negatively impact your health and wellness,” said Michael Grandner, PhD, MTR, CBSM. “To improve your physical performance, mental health and cognitive functions, you should aim to get a sufficient amount of sleep each night and be consistent with the times you go to sleep and wake up each day.”

The three primary feature additions to the Fitbit app are:

  • Personalized sleep goals based on your sleep data to achieve your optimal amount of sleep each night
  • Customized bedtime and wakeup targets to establish sleep consistency
  • Reminders to stay on schedule, and a sleep schedule history to chart your progress

These changes will help determine what time is best for you to go to bed, when’s the best time to wake up, and give users a nudge to get to bed for a better nights sleep.

These are the Fitbit fitness trackers that this latest update is compatible with:

Fitbit has rapidly turned into one of the most popular fitness trackers on the market. Even with the likes of the Samsung Gear Fit 2 being released as a direct competitor, Fitbit still seems to be ahead of the pack. You’d be hard-pressed to go out for the day and not see at least a few of these trackers on the wrists of other people. The update is rolling out today, and you can grab it via the Google Play link below.
