I know this is a really old thread, but I'm just now reading it. I have a suggestion for the person who removes the wrist band during sleep. Place an arm warmer over the wrist band. One could use a tight sock too. Just cut the toe off and slip the sock over the wrist band.

If you're waking up many times, it might be worth telling your doctor so you can be evaluated for sleep apnea.

I have a fitbit and really like it, but they're not cheap!

I've had a fitbit for close to year. I can't stand wearing it on my wrist at night to track sleep. I wake up in the morning and have pulled it off at some point during the night. Any one have suggestions?

You can get a Fitbit at either ...Fitbit.com or at Best Buy Stores & the cost is around $99.00
They have a new Fitbit called the' Fitbit ultra' that tracks more.

OK. Where can you get one of these Fitbits and how much do they cost?
Thanks!

Glad to hear you found out that info. I am sorry but I don't really know about a Fitbit. Where do you get one at?

Yes, I have had my FITBIT for close to a year now & it's so nice to read from someone else who has one.
The tracking sleep part was & is an eye opener for me, I can't figure out how it knows when I wake but It does, because I usually am aware when I wake so I know this FITBIT is pretty accurate. I like how it tells you how long it took for you to fall asleep. It usually takes me a long time to fall asleep so when I see it took me 6 mins or 12 mins to fall asleep I'm just thrilled. I love the Tracking Sleep feature on it the most.
I average about 5-7 hours of sleep....

I wanted to buy it just for the sleep thing but then read reviews saying that if you move a lot during your sleep it counts as being awake and if you don't move but stay still trying to sleep it will count as deep sleep. I think the most accurate way to know if record yourself sleeping, but that's a bit creepy

emoticon I did not realize that the Fitbit could measure your sleep patterns. I think I need to do more research into this device.
Thank you for sharing your discovery

I just recently got a Fitbit. It keeps up with my steps, activity level, calories burned, etc. I can also wear it at night and it will tell me how long I actually sleep. It has been an eye opener. I knew that I wake up a lot at night but never knew just how much. I usually get in the bed by 9 and get up around 5:30 or 6 each morning-so that would make 8 hours. However, with all the times I wake up at night, my new Fitbit puts me only getting about 6 1/2 to 7 hours of sleep. This new information means I am going to have to revisit some of the things I learned in this challenge to help me get my 8 hours and sleep more soundly each night. emoticon
