One thing you can do with the sleep function is to see if you are doing something in your sleep. Some people may sleep walk or do something in their sleep or under the influence (whether alcohol or allergy medicine). We have all heard the stories of people "sleep eating" while taking whatever that medicine is or people not remembering interactions while they had a fever. Or if you just had a really long day and cannot remember if that last conversation was a dream or really happened. However it happens, you can check your sleep graph and see if you were deeply asleep, tossing and turning, or up and walking around.
One thing my husband teases me about and I, of course, deny is me drifting in and out while doing crossword puzzles (on my iphone) before officially falling asleep. I do the puzzles as a way to wind down after I get into bed. If I am really tired, but still sort of wired, my husband will nudge me and tell me to put my phone up if I am falling asleep, and I tell him I was not asleep, I was just resting my eyes for a second, etc. The next day, I wind up finding really odd sleep/awake patterns for that time period.
I have a bodybugg and have had one for quite awhile, but am considering switching to the bodymedia. My main reasoning is because I am interested in the sleep feature. Anyone out there who has used both and have any thoughts on this? Or bodymedia folks - what do you think of the sleep feature?
Thanks in advance for your help on this!
