A Premium night’s rest with Google Pixel Watch

While everyone has different sleep needs and routines, there are clear patterns that we all fall into. After a decade of analyzing over 22 billion hours of sleep data and 1.87 million sleep logs, we wanted to share what we’ve found to not only help you learn more about your sleep, but give you the information and tools to make it better. That’s why we're bringing Fitbit Premium’s Sleep Profile to the Google Pixel Watch, giving you more ways to understand your sleep information, get more insight into your sleep style over time – including how your routines and actions impact sleep – and find ways to improve to (hopefully) get a better night’s rest.

Now, Premium members can access their Sleep Profile in the Fitbit app with Google Pixel Watch in addition to Fitbit devices.1 The monthly analysis takes into account 10 different aspects of sleep — including sleep duration, bedtime consistency and disrupted sleep — to provide a complete picture of your sleep patterns and habits. All these insights determine your sleep animal, which represents what type of sleeper you were that month. For example, a giraffe, the most common type of sleeper (22.8% of users), is someone who doesn’t get a lot of sleep but sleeps solidly when they do. You’ll also get a detailed analysis of how your sleep patterns compare to someone of a similar age and gender, so you can see where you may want to improve.

If you wore your Google Pixel Watch to sleep for at least 14 nights in October, you will receive your first Sleep Profile and animal on November 22. If you start wearing your watch to bed today, you’ll get your results for the month of November on December 1.

    Giraffe: Your sleep tends to be shorter, and you are more likely to sleep later and wake up earlier. You have a relatively good proportion of deep and REM sleep despite a shorter overall duration. Most Giraffes skew younger in age.

    Bear: You tend to have a consistent sleep schedule, regularly falling asleep around the same time. You go to bed earlier than most, and you tend to reach a sound sleep quickly. Your sleep tends to be long and restful, with a relatively high proportion of deep and REM sleep.

  • Fitbit Premium in-app screen picturing a sleeping dolphin with explanations of the sleeper type.

    Dolphin: You tend to fall asleep later than most and sleep for less time overall—maybe due to an inconsistent sleep schedule. Compared to others, you tend to be a lighter sleeper and might take naps to catch up.

  • Fitbit Premium in-app screen picturing a sleeping hedgehog with explanations of the sleeper type.

    Hedgehog: You usually fall asleep later and wake up earlier. You are a lighter sleeper—typically taking longer to reach sound sleep and may get less deep and REM. Most Hedgehogs skew older in age.

  • Fitbit Premium in-app screen picturing a sleeping parrot with explanations of the sleeper type.

    Parrot: You tend to keep a consistent bedtime and don’t sleep too early or late. You typically reach sound sleep quickly and usually get a good amount of sleep each night. You likely sleep deeply once you drift off but can be light on REM due to waking up briefly throughout the night. The Parrot has the highest proportion of men, and is one of the most active users with an average of 9,733 steps per day.

  • Fitbit Premium in-app screen picturing a sleeping tortoise with explanations of the sleeper type.

    Tortoise: You tend to fall asleep at different times each night, but often earlier than most. Paired with slightly later average wake times, you tend to spend more time in bed overall but may find it takes longer to reach a sound sleep, impacting your lower than average deep and REM sleep. The Tortoise has the highest proportion of women, but is the least common sleeper type (12.2% of users).

Since it launched earlier this year, we’ve released 6.35 million profiles to our users, showing us some interesting trends (July-November 2022). People who use Sleep Profile are most successful at hitting the ideal range of "Time Before Sound Sleep" (52%), REM sleep (49.7%) and deep sleep (49.5%). But they are the least successful at hitting the ideal range of "Nights with Long Awakenings" and "Sleep Schedule Variability" (14.6% and 23.2% respectively). The most common areas of improvement are Days with Naps (61.2%), Sleep Schedule Variability (52.7%) and Restorative Sleep (45.6%).
