How do I read my sleep data?

The Sleep screen shows all the data related to your sleep on a single screen.

The graph on the upper half of the screen displays periods of deep sleep, light sleep and awake time. Touch and drag your finger across the graph to view start and end times of each sleep segment.

The alarm clock icon indicates a Smart Sleep alarm.

The table on the lower half of the screen shows a summary of your sleep, including total deep sleep, total light sleep, total awake time and how many times you woke up. It even shows you how much time you took to fall asleep.

Touch the pencil icon on the awake time cell to edit the bedtime and rise time of your sleep recording, or to delete your sleep recording.

Why do I need to wear my watch to record my sleep?

Wearing your watch will provide the best accuracy, but you can also place your watch under your pillow. Just be sure to tell the AlpinerX application which position you prefer to sleep in, from the settings page under "sleep mode preferences".

How is light vs deep sleep determined?

There is a direct correlation between micro-motions of the body during sleep and sleep cycles. MMT's technology is the result of years of development based on the biomechanics of natural human motion and the mechanics of machine motion. Using the medical gold standard of Polysomnography, the sensor-fusion engine analyzes millions of anonymous nights of sleep, validates and continually improves the accuracy and reliability of the AlpinerX application.

How does my AlpinerX detect my sleep start/stop/cycles?

The AlpinerX watch detects automatically that you started a night sleep, based on the movement measurement, and the sleep and wake-up times you provided.

At night, when the AlpinerX watch detects that you started a sleep cycle, it starts the night sleep recording. In the morning, when the watch detects that you are awake thanks to the measurement of your activity, it closes the night recording and starts measuring your activity.

At night, you must wear your AlpinerX watch to let it monitor your sleep. You can also put it under your pillow. In this case you must set it in the "Sleep mode preferences" in the "General" menu.
