Clearly, sleep quality is the underestimated measure of the most serious state of recovery. The most basic wrist wearable sleep tracking device uses an accelerometer and gyroscope to measure your activity. Although its data may not be as accurate and detailed as the data given by the device that measures brain activity, at least it can measure your sleep time relatively accurately, telling you when you wake up at night.
When your body is exhausted by intense exercise, the best way to recover is to sleep. When you sleep, your body will repair itself to counteract the damage your exercise has on your muscles. Physical performance physiologist, New Zealand Performance Sport rowing coach Dr. Daniel Plews said: “In modern lifestyles, we tend to ignore the importance of sleep.”
“Sleep is a very important part of life, and keeping track of sleep can help you better regulate your sleep.”
That’s right, sleeping less than seven hours a night is not a good quality sleep. You can use the fitness tracking device to see trends in your sleep. For example, my best sleep quality is Sunday and Wednesday night. In this way, you can arrange your training plan according to your own situation. In this long-term, you will find that you can recover more quickly and make greater progress.
