I posted a few weeks ago that I started using MyZeo to measure my sleep.
Here are some results and thoughts
I sleep well (I already knew that but interesting to see how)
MyZeo gives me nice history of my sleep giving a score 0 – 100 everynight
I sleep a lot, about 7 hours typically (there is a night I had to wake up early for traveling there)
I’m getting about 37 minutes average deep sleep and 2.5 hours of REM sleep, I wake up in average 3x per night
If you want it, you get a LOT of data, you can see I’m going to sleep pretty early, that’s a major change in my life since I moved to San Francisco, everything is early, while in Paris I would never go to sleep before midnight to 1am while here it’s like 11pm. I was getting clearly less sleep in Paris, different life…
Interesting to see me versus the “typical men” of my age, I’m getting asleep 3x as fast, I sleep a little more and I get more REM sleep but less deep sleep.
Zeo has good resources on why sleep matters and the “sleep stealers” but they aren’t personalized.
So the net is that it’s pretty interesting but
-I am not sure I really understand that data and know what to do with it. I would need more personalized explanations.
-it seems that my sleep doesn’t change that much from one day to another or from one week to another, which might make me stop using MyZeo if it’s always the same
-the head sensor makes you look ridiculous but doesn’t bother me to sleep at all. You can’t take it when you travel as you’d have to take the entire reader with you and it’s too big. I travel a lot so it’s not very convenient.
-I’d like to see my sleep data integrated with my withings and my runkeeper to see if there is any pattern
Will I continue using it? Likely for now as I’d like to do some experiments, like stopping to drink any alcohol for a week (the french drink some wine at dinners and see if it does anything, same with lots of exercise or no exercise. Effects of stress as I am going through the typical (or non typical) entrepreneur’s life which has its ups and downs.
I will report more soon… Thoughts?
