RE: Amazfit (Zepp) Smartwatch - Sleep tracking experiment

in #smartwatch4 days ago

I've had a real live honest to goodness sleep study done in a lab. I got less than 10 minutes of rem sleep in the 8hrs I was in bed. Not so good.

7 electrodes on my skull and an O2 sensor on my finger. Because of the results I had to stay the day for a 'sleep latency' test and averaged under 2 minutes per nap cycle throughout the day. That is somewhere near the bottom on both tests.

Sort:  

Jeez! That sounds terrible!

Were there any reasons given as to why? And, how do you cope?!

Yes. It was to verify the diagnosis of Narcolepsy and moderate sleep apnea. Not a particularly good combination. I have been surgically corrected to a non troubling level of apnea. The Narcolepsy goes on.

Ahh. A double whammy that sounds rather mission critical. Glad that one aspect has been improved, and I wish you well in finding out how to improve on the narcolepsy.

I'm about 25 years in, I'd guess I'm used to it :)

Damn. And you still seem to have your marbles!
