How to increase the accuracy of your rhythm

Understanding your circadian rhythm begins with one crucial element: accurate sleep data.

We understand the significance of this data in analyzing and fine-tuning your rhythm for better sleep and overall well-being. Whether you're armed with the latest fitness tracker or prefer a more manual approach, we have you covered. Let's explore the best ways to ensure your sleep data is as precise as it can be.

Leveraging Fitness Trackers for Accurate Data

For those of you with fitness trackers, syncing your sleep data with Peaks is a breeze. Your tracker diligently records your sleep patterns throughout the night, offering a detailed insight into your slumber. To get this data into Peaks, simply connect your fitness tracker with Apple Health, and voila! The data flows seamlessly into Peaks, providing a solid foundation for our rhythm analysis.

Alternative Methods: Sleep Tracking Apps

No fitness tracker? No problem! Numerous sleep tracking apps are available that can accurately capture the data Peaks needs to analyze your rhythm. These apps use your phone's sensors to monitor your sleep, offering an alternative solution to traditional fitness trackers. Once you choose an app, sync it with Peaks to ensure your sleep data is up-to-date and accurate.

Manual Sleep Pattern Tracking in Peaks

For those who prefer a hands-on approach, manually tracking your sleep patterns in Peaks is an excellent option. This method allows you to record your sleep times based on your personal experience. It's simple, direct, and gives you full control over the data you're providing.

Avoiding Inaccurate Data from Apple Clock

A common obstacle to accurate sleep tracking is the Apple Clock's Bedtime feature. While it means well, it doesn't always provide the most accurate picture of your sleep patterns. We recommend turning off the 'Track time in bed with iPhone' toggle in the Health app. This small adjustment can significantly enhance the accuracy of your sleep data in Peaks.

The Importance of Patience: Give Peaks Time

Like any good thing, achieving precise rhythm analysis in Peaks takes a little time. Initially, the app may need a few days or even weeks to fully synchronize with your unique sleep patterns, especially if you've had some inaccurate data in the past. Rest assured, this process is essential in tailoring Peaks to your personal rhythm.

In the quest for optimal sleep and a harmonious circadian rhythm, accurate sleep data is your best ally. Whether through a high-tech tracker, an app, or manual entry, the key is consistency and precision. By following these steps, you'll equip Peaks with the best data to serve you better.
