Spoiler alert: Few people close their eyes to superiority.
Sleep is an important bodily function that directly impacts physical and mental health. At this point, we all know that 7-9 hours every night should be our goal. But fixing a deviant habit is easier said than done, and even knowing that I finally put my phone on my nightstand at 11pm and didn’t touch it until 7am. It may not be enough information to analyze what really happened. in those eight hours.
This is where Garmin Sleep Score comes in. Powered by Firstbeat Analytics, a science-backed health data platform, compatible Garmin watches with advanced sleep tracking (when worn while you sleep) measure your heart rate, heart rate variability, and breathing. use. Assign your nightly sleep score using your speed, body movement and other important data. On a number from 0 to 100, a high sleep score means you’re sleeping well and ready to tackle the day. On the other hand, a low sleep score could indicate that you’re having a tough day.
Much like human nature, we want to know where we fit in. Below, we look at his Garmin user’s sleep quality in the fourth quarter of 2022 (October, November, December).
quality of average sleep score
Each morning you will receive a sleep score on a scale of 0-100 that summarizes your sleep the previous night. Based on your score, a ranking is assigned: Excellent (90-100), Good (80-89), Fair (60-79), Poor (0-60). As you can see, a score of 90 or above is an achievement. Not many Garmin users achieve this score on a regular basis. Only his 5% of Garmin users achieved average sleep scores in the excellent category.
If you find yourself in the normal category, there’s a good chance you’ve had a good night’s sleep most of the time, but a few restless nights let you down. If your sleep score was below 60, it might be wise to start looking at ways to improve your sleep.
Average Sleep Score by Age
If youth is wasted on youth, let’s hope sleep is not. It’s no news that sleep quality declines as we age, but thanks to the advanced sleep tracking features of Garmin watches, we can now quantify exactly how much we expect our sleep quality to decline. Adults aged 20-29 had an average sleep score of 70, dropping to 66 by age 50-59, and an average of 61 by age 70+.
Average sleep score by country
As a global company, we always want to see how different areas overlap with each other. We researched several locales where users love tracking sleep scores. The results above show a comparison of mean values. And it doesn’t have to be all competition, but I’m curious what the secret to good sleep is in Holland!
Average sleep score by gender
I’ll spare you the old trope about the sex battle here, but the data suggests that women, on average, sleep (slightly) better than men. Want to learn more about how it can help? Read this blog post.
sleep score and sleep time
Not surprisingly, the longer you sleep, the more likely you are to have a positive sleep score. His Garmin user with less than his five hours of sleep had no chance of achieving a sleep score in the good range. Interestingly, too much sleep can also be a problem. Looking at the bad scores, we can see that the curve starts to reverse once the user starts getting more than her 9 hours of sleep. And an excellent score, maybe a little, shows that 8-8.5 hours really is that sweet spot.
