Monitor your sleep
Do we really need to say it? Getting adequate and quality sleep is part of a healthy lifestyle! Moreover, poor quality and quantity of sleep is associated with increased cardiovascular risk. That means the roughly 1 in 3 American adults who do not get the recommended amount of sleep each night may be contributing to the cardiovascular disease epidemic. With so many potential benefits; there’s no excuse not to pay better attention to your sleep. Getting adequate and quality sleep may help:
- Improve mood
- Reach weight loss goals
- Battle stress
- Improve exercise performance and recovery
- Elevate daytime energy levels
- Learn and retain new knowledge better
- Improve workplace productivity
- Boost immune system strength
- Build better cardiovascular and brain health
Track your Sleeping Heart Rate
Your sleeping heart rate can be an important indicator of your cardiovascular health and fitness level that is less variable than your waking, resting heart rate.
How it works
- Dock Sleep Watch on your Apple Watch (WatchOS3 users only)
- Make sure your Apple Watch is adequately charged before bedtime (we recommend at least 65% charge before bed)
- Wear your Apple Watch to bed (do not enable Power Reserve mode)
- About 30 minutes after you wake, check the Watch or iPhone app to review your auto-detected sleep stats
- Confirm or adjust your auto-detected sleep times on the iPhone app
We recommend scheduling ‘Do Not Disturb’ to turn on automatically during your typical sleeping hours to prevent any Watch notifications from disturbing you during sleep. This can be done in the iPhone Watch App > My Watch > General > “Do Not Disturb” section.
