The Power of Good Sleep: The Scientific Benefits of Sleeping and How We Can Get Better at It

Alriyadh, 12 November 2023: As much as the heart powers our body, the same could be said of Sleep. It’s as vital to us as the air we breathe and is the make-or-break habit that influences our lives and health. Unfortunately, as the world gets more modern and digital, we seem to neglect the importance of sleep and pick up unhealthy bedtime habits. One of the most common ones is scrolling on our screens right before falling asleep.

According to the World Economic Forum, almost 62% of adults all over the world are reporting a lack of quality sleep. Many are unaware of the major implications that sleep has on health, especially in the long term. Poor sleep can affect our heart, immune system, mental health, and more. Moreover, many don’t have the proper tools to understand how they can sleep better. To bridge the gap and improve access to sleep management tools, some brands like Huawei have invested in sleep technology and introduced sleep monitoring features in their wearable devices.

Personalised Solutions for Everyone

From the night-shift worker to the working parent, the way we sleep is as unique to us as our identities, which is also why experts struggle to figure out a one-size-fits-all solution to sleeping better. This means we need to understand our own sleep cycles and habits in a personalised way.

Smartwatches can help us with that, as they offer easy access to sleep monitoring technologies. Currently, many smartwatches in the market can detect the different phases of sleep (Light Sleep, REM sleep, deep sleep, etc.). Huawei’s latest smartwatches go a step further, giving users the most customised sleep tracking experience possible. 

Huawei’s TruSleep™ 3.0 can detect micro-movements during sleep to more precisely identify the stage of sleep the user is in. If you wonder whether you toss and turn during sleep, or whether you get enough deep sleep to avoid daytime sleepiness, the watch can help you with that. Additionally, new smartwatches like the HUAWEI WATCH GT 4 utilise the HUAWEI TruSeenTM 5.5+’s advanced sensor to detect changes in heart rate during sleep, which means it takes a more comprehensive reading of your sleep cycle. 

Tools for a Good Night’s Rest

Sleep doesn’t have to be complicated or stressful. It should be a natural and relaxing activity that benefits our health and wellbeing. The WATCH GT 4’s sleep monitoring feature takes care of various aspects of the user’s sleep, including the very moment of waking, connecting to other features like the Clock app, so that users can rest easy and not fret about oversleeping. Users can also set notifications that will inform them when it’s bedtime so that they’ll be reminded to get sufficient rest without having to repeatedly check the clock or set alarms. 

The sleep tracking algorithm is also comprehensive yet user-friendly. Instead of overwhelming you with a ton of data, the watch gives you a score on sleep quality and provides recommendations on how to improve your sleep habits. It intelligently does so by gathering your physiological data and assessing the steps needed to improve sleep. 

How Breathing Influences Sleep

Many conventional smartwatches today overlook the importance of breathing well – especially during sleep. Our breathing rate slows down when we fall asleep, and it can vary across the different stages of sleep. In some cases, we may experience disruptions or irregularities in our breathing that can affect our overall wellbeing and sleep quality without us noticing. 

Currently, one of the few smartwatches with the ability to measure breath irregularity is the WATCH GT 4. It has a new feature called Sleep Breathing Awareness that helps monitor breathing during sleep, and rates it from Low to High. Although it is not a medical device, it can help you understand your respiratory health and sleep quality better, and alert you when it’s time to seek professional help.

If you’re looking for a solution to help you sleep better, wearable technology can be a great way to start learning and improving your sleep habits. And the HUAWEI WATCH GT 4 has one of the most comprehensive sleep tracking technologies in the market now.

The HUAWEI WATCH GT 4 is available now in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at a starting price 999 SAR through Huawei’s online platform or authorized retailers.
