Don't use the sensitive setting. We all move in our sleep.

You can change it under device settings. I'm sure that normal is the default as that is appropriate for almost everyone. I sleep quite well, a few awakenings but not awake for long each time. Normal looks accurate. Sensitive shows me sleeping terribly, awake half the night, and that's not true.

I didn't know you could change the sensitivity settings on it . . . I guess mine is on normal. It seems pretty reflective of my sleep pattern, and my level of fatigue usually does line up with what the FitBit is showing me in terms of how many times I woke up through the night.

Don't use sensitive! Each time you move a little it shows you as awake for 20 minutes. (I tested it when I wasn't even wearing it)

I'll try the normal setting tonight and see what happens. Doesn't help that DH had an unusually loud snoring session last night.

I found that too. It explains why I'm always so tired even though I'm in bed at least 8 hours every night.

here is a clickable link for your article

www.helpguide.org/life/sleeping.htm

we just changed our sleep patterns due to hubby getting a new work schedule and it truly is taking havoc on my body and sleep. Before I got the 8 hours in, now I am getting in around 2 hours less of good sleep since we are afraid of oversleeping.

my body is paying for it dearly now I can see where I burn 100 less calories each night while sleelping

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

The FB support staff suggest that the sensitive position is recommended only for a small % of users.

I just got my Fitbit yesterday, so we'll see where the numbers go from here. My first night with the sleep monitor shows that the longest I stayed still was for one hour. I'm trying to find online information about that. I have it set on sensitive, so I may try it the normal way and see what happens. Oh, and I was a sleepwalker into young adulthood, so I wonder if that has bearing on my sleep patterns.
Here's an article that seems to be useful: http://www.helpguide.org/life/sleeping.htm
