Sleep/fitness trackers? what works?

I’d like to better manage my sleep and measure it reliably. What do people use? Looking for a Christmas present idea…for me πŸ˜‰ Anyone use the Oura ring? Kinda expensive but worth it? Better options? I would like something that will upload it to my PC automatically as I think only that will work to me. I am bad about key entry ;-0 I liked the Omada weight tracker and had that for a couple years on my health program…step on my scale and it is recorded. I want that now with sleep and types of sleep per night.

My husband has UC and has been monitoring his sleep for the last year. I would like to start. Don’t want the band around your chest like he uses as he says that will impact your lymphatic system so he is looking for a new option too…maybe they have a cute couples ring set when we both have an Auto Immune diseas ;-0

Hi!
I use my Fitbit which tracks everything for me. I like to keep track of the fitness but also my sleep as well. Once you download the app with it, it goes into detail about your sleeping report. I love the Fitbit!

OK, thanks I think it is an option and will likely have deals over black Friday too. I generally dislike bracelets for some reason and gave up a watch as soon as I had a phone πŸ˜‰ I will try some on for comfort- Thanks!

Some people count up their steps…I tend to know I only have so many steps a day and try to use them wisely. I keep trying to push those steps up but with progression it is hard. I have been able to increase distance on my stationary bike as it doesn’t stress my hip (replaced 2 yrs ago) as much.

Yes you should definitely try them out! I have the Inspire HR and it’s very light and you will forget it’s even there. I also keep track of my steps so it’s very useful and I’m sure it can help/ motivate you to increase distance. Here is the one that I have https://www.fitbit.com/inspire. Hope you like them πŸ™‚

Hi @itsmewithms, I agree with @rel12 the inspire is great. I wanted something lightweight that I hopefully wouldn’t notice and that was my choice. I haven’t worn a watch or jewellery for a long time as I was a baker for many years. The sleep app gives you good info and also the steps and exercise. Adam 😊

I don’t see heart rate variability with this to track time in different sleep stages..are you getting that somehow? are you seeing how much sleep, what type, at what times and how long? Just not seeing that in the features…

As far a step and activity tracking ;-0 I could use a “count down” to know how many more steps I will be good for. MS has made me rethink this as I need to priotize where and how I spend my energy and recognize I have a shorter battery all the time-

I see heart rate variability and features I want on the Garmin Fit VivoSmart 4…maybe there will be a black friday on that one. Looks like it can send pulse to my phone using an App but not with Fitbit…
