How does the Watch GT work the magic? Thanks to TruSleep 3.0 technology, Watch GT supports sleep tracking using both scientific and traditional ways. TruSleep sleep tracking technology accurately detects six types of sleep issues by monitoring heart rate, analyzing breathing patterns and sleep quality during sleep. You will also receive more than 200 personalized wellness suggestions such as meditation, exercise before sleep or nap.
Aren't these features really functional and convenient? Let's talk more about this and how you can fully maximize its functions to help you sleep better.
Viewing your sleep data
- View sleep data on the watch: Touch Sleep on your watch to view your sleep data. Please note that your watch can only display sleep data of the current day. The 24-hour sleep tracking starts from 20:00 every day, and the sleep data for the previous day will be cleared at 24:00 each day.
- View sleep data in the Huawei Health app: Touch Sleep card on the home screen of the Huawei Health app to view your detailed sleep data. When TruSleep is enabled, sleep data that is less than three hours, possibly a nap, will be recorded as Naps instead of TruSleep data. Naps data will not be included in the bar chart.
TruSleep can only be enabled in the Huawei Health app. Connect your watch to the phone using the Huawei Health app. Touch your watch name and go to TruSleep. TruSleep is enabled by default. Your watch will continue to track your sleep using traditional methods after TruSleep is disabled.
Once TruSleep is enabled, power consumption of your watch increases as well.
Improving sleep quality
With TruSleep enabled, you can view your sleep quality assessments and personalized improvement suggestions in sleep details screen. Touch different sleep period to see corresponding suggestions to improve your sleep quality.
If you do not enable TruSleep in the Huawei Health app, your watch will only use data from its accelerometers to give you a simple analysis of your sleep duration and sleep depth. When this sleep data is synced to the Huawei Health app, only sleep duration will be displayed in the sleep details page.
If TruSleep is enabled in Huawei Health app, your watch uses TruSleep sleep analysis technology to extrapolate normal sinus rhythm and breathing signals from heart rate data. Hilbert-Huang transform (HHT) technology is then used to analyze the coherence and cross-spectral density of the two signals to allow Cardiopulmonary Coupling (CPC) analysis, which can accurately determine which stage of sleep you are in, such as deep sleep, shallow sleep, REM sleep, and wakefulness. Your watch not only analyzes your sleep in detail, but also provides you with sleep score and personalized suggestions to help you improve the quality of your sleep.
Having issues? Follow the trouble shooting:
- Loss of sleep data
If you take a midday nap of less than 30 minutes or you moved around too much during a midday nap, your watch may have determined incorrectly that you were awake.
- Extra sleep data recorded inaccurately
When you are awake, if you remain relatively still and do not touch your watch's screen, your watch may incorrectly determine that you are still asleep. This will also cause it to incorrectly add to your recorded sleep duration.
- Number of recorded wake times is inaccurate
Too few wake times: If you do not move much after you wake up, for example by lying in bed instead of getting up, this may result in the number of recorded wake times being fewer than expected.
The accuracy of sleep monitoring is highly affected by how you wear your watch and the movement of your wrist:
- It is recommended that you wear the watch slightly below your carpal bone with the watch face facing upwards. Avoid wearing the watch directly on your carpal bone as this will cause there to be a space between the watch and your wrist. Do not wear your watch too tightly or loosely as this may also affect the accuracy of your sleep data.
- When you take off your watch, place it on its side on a table to prevent the collection of erroneous sleep data.
