Sleep has been identified as an important factor contributing to optimal athletic performance. Bird, Stephen. (2013).

Sleep tracking is a critical tool for optimizing rest quality, facilitating muscular recovery, and maintaining peak athletic performance. This section empowers you to comprehensively analyze your athletes' sleep patterns, providing valuable insights into their overall well-being. By comparing the data with the previous week, you can track the evolution of their sleep quality and duration, making informed decisions to tailor their training or recovery plans accordingly.

The main metrics for sleep analysis include:

  1. Sleep Score: An overall measure of how well the athlete slept, typically ranging from 0 to 100. The calculation method may vary depending on the brand of wearables used.

  2. Sleep Duration: This metric provides the amount of time spent in light sleep, REM sleep, and deep sleep.

  3. Sleep Efficiency: The percentage of time spent asleep compared to the time spent awake while in bed, giving insights into the effectiveness of sleep.

  4. Respiratory Rate: This indicates the number of breaths taken per minute during sleep, which can be relevant for assessing overall sleep health.

Additionally, you receive detailed information on the time spent in each of the four stages of sleep:

  • Light Sleep

  • Deep Sleep (or Slow-Wave Sleep): A physically restorative stage crucial for muscle recovery and repair.

  • REM Sleep: A mentally restorative stage associated with memory consolidation and cognitive processes.

  • Awake Periods: Identifying any disruptions in sleep, such as waking up during the night.

By utilizing these sleep metrics, you can gain a comprehensive understanding of your athletes' sleep patterns and take proactive measures to optimize their overall performance and well-being.
