My first day (and night) using the Fitbit (Quantified Self) tracker
I also used the Fitbit when I was sleeping and I found that I had 84% sleep efficiency (based on my level of movement/activity during sleep). The Fitbit recorded 23 times awakened during my sleep. This is my first time using the Fitbit during my sleep, so I'll have to see if this trend continues. Furthermore, I don't have any scientific data regarding the accuracy, reliability, and relevance of this type of sleep information that is collected by an accelerometer-based device worn on the wrist. Maybe I need to get a sleep study and compare those findings with the data I'm collecting using the Fitbit. Next week, I hope to use the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach to see how I'm sleeping.
I'm wearing the Fitbit today while I attend the AMA Task Force conference (22nd Annual Conference of the National Task Force on CME Provider/Industry Collaboration). How many steps will I walk today?
