Is 8 hours enough? Read below to find out.


Sleep is something you spend about one-third of your life doing [1]. That may sound like a lot of snoozin’, but it’s absolutely essential to a healthy lifestyle.

According to the CDC, the necessary amount of sleep varies by age, as well as other factors, including overall health. Typically, adults that are 18–60 years old need 7 or more hours of sleep at night, with younger individuals needing even more [2].

While getting enough sleep may seem like all there is to it, the quality of your sleep is just as important [3]. So, how do you know if you’re actually getting enough quality sleep? Well, the combination of your iFit wearable and the iFit Coach app can help you! Just follow these steps:

  1. Wear your wearable to bed. It will automatically enter sleep mode and track your sleep patterns.
  2. Make sure you’ve set your In Bed Time and Wake Up Time in the Product Settings of the app.
  3. The following morning, sync your wearable to the app so your stats are up-to-date.
  4. From Today’s Plan, tap the bar graph icon in the bottom right corner of the purple Sleep section.
  5. The next screen will show you detailed stats about your sleep!
