If you are using a Fitbit Versa 2 with heart-rate tracking to track your sleep, you can see a record of the sleep stages you cycle through at night. Fitbit estimates your sleep stages using a combination of your movement and heart-rate patterns. When you haven’t moved for about an hour, your tracker or watch assumes that you’re asleep.
While you’re sleeping, your device tracks the beat-to-beat changes in your heart rate, known as heart rate variability (HRV), which fluctuates as you transition between light sleep, deep sleep, and REM sleep stages. When you sync your device in the morning, we use your movement and heart rate patterns to estimate your sleep cycles from the previous night.
HONOR Band 5 provides advanced functions in addition to heart rate tracking or calorie counting. It offers professional sleep insight as one of the most practical functions. It helps track, record, and even analyze your sleep. From the sleep curve on the paired app, you’ll get a precise insight into your sleep habit and even quality. It records the time you go to sleep and wake up, the specific time and percentage of deep sleep, light sleep and REM periods.

Considered to be one of the best running watches, the Polar M430 GPS Running Watch comes with the sleep smarts feature to keep it on our wrists around the clock.

When you wake up, open the Sleep app to learn how much sleep you got and see your sleep trends over the past 14 days.
As per the brand, even if your Apple Watch is charged less than 30 percent before you go to bed, you’re prompted to charge it. In the morning, just glance at the greeting to see how much charge remains. In addition to this, oxygen saturation, blood oxygen, always-on retina display and always-on altimeter are some of the major features of the smartwatch.
