Exploring Sleep summaries
Based on the data collected during sleep, Oxa presents various metrics. This article explains what data Oxa records while you sleep and how to review your sleep summary once you wake up.
As of April 2023, the first release of Oxa’s sleep tools is an early bird version. Keep an eye out for even more updates and enhancements coming in the upcoming weeks, and meanwhile, sleep tight! Contact us if you experience any issues or want to suggest improvements.
Each overview of an Oxa sleep session includes:
- a percentage breakdown of your sleep position (side - right and left, back, and belly)
- number of position changes: a good indicator of sleep quality. Most people will change positions between 10 and 40 times a night. The ideal sleep position is different for everyone. However, as you get older, side sleeping can help prevent snoring.
- sleep onset, including past comparison: The time it takes you to fall asleep can indicate whether you're getting enough rest. The ideal range is between 10 and 20 minutes. If you fall asleep very fast, it's likely you're over-tired. Longer than 20 minutes could mean you're experiencing insomnia.
- Note: sleep onset can only be calculated if you follow the guided breathing exercise at the start of your sleep.
- detailed, interactive sleep timeline graphs.
Choose between the calmness, heart rate, and HRV graphs. Tap along the sleep timeline to explore how your vitals change throughout the night.
The sleep graphs show detailed information about your vital signs and your position changes over the duration of your sleep. Each position change is shown by a vertical line. You can tap and hold the graph to zoom in and see an exact breakdown of your calmness, heart rate, and HRV. How do your vitals change over the course of your sleep? How are they affected by your position?
This helps give you an insight into your sleep quality and your health. For instance, the average heart rate during sleep is 40-50 bpm. Your heart rate is normally slower during sleep, but it also changes during different stages of sleep. It’s at its slowest during deep sleep and speeds up during REM sleep.
