Why is my sleep score important?

Modified on Tue, 30 Nov 2021 at 09:50 AM

Getting sufficient sleep is essential to your body’s development and repair functions, as well as for memory consolidation. It protects against diabetes, some cancers, heart disease, and some psychiatric diseases. 

The amount and quality of sleep you get therefore has a big impact on your health. While scientific literature strongly supports the existence of a relationship between sleep and long-term health, little information exists about how the various individual elements of sleep (such as duration, schedule, awakenings, movements, and time spent in each sleep stage) affect health. 

The sleep score takes all of these individual elements of sleep, as well as the relationships between them, into account to provide an easily interpretable measure of your overall sleep health.
