I stopped using this fitness tracker at night, as I got too obsessed with my sleep metrics


I’m obsessed with sleep. I’m an eight-hours-a-night kind of girl, and I’m normally in bed by 10pm, with tried and tested duvets and pillows, to ensure I get the best-possible night’s sleep. But after I started wearing a fitness tracker to monitor the quality of my snoozes, my sleep patterns actually got worse – until a sleep expert told me to stop wearing it.

Sleep tracking has become increasingly common, with the best fitness trackers embedding sleep features, via sensors, to track our sleep stages and help us make changes in order to get better-quality sleep, while dedicated sleep trackers and smart rings are also growing in popularity.
