Withings Pulse - What is the Sleep score?
The Sleep score is a very simple and intuitive way to understand how well you slept. It measures every night's sleep and provides a score out of 100 points based on 4 key inputs:
- Duration (total time spent sleeping)
- Depth (part of night spent in restorative phases, deep sleep and REM sleep)
- Regularity (consistency between your bed- and rise-times)
- Interruptions (time spent awake)
Sleep duration and depth are the most important factors for raising sleep score. The key factors in the sleep score are sleep regularity and sleep hygiene. An improvement in these hygiene measures will improve the overall sleep experience.
Withings Pulse - What information can I find about my sleep?
You can retrieve the sleep data collected by your Withings Pulse™ in your Timeline or on your Dashboard in the Health Mate app.
The Health Mate app keeps your entire history, allowing you to easily track how your sleep data evolves over time.
Sleep cycles and sleep structure
The various sleep stages follow each other in a continuous cycle that lasts between 90 and 120 minutes. Each cycle is composed of five sleep stages:
- Stage 1 is where we fall asleep. During this stage, you may occasionally experience muscle twitches or starts.
- Stage 2 is a light sleep stage, when you are easily awakened.
- Stages 3 and 4 are deep sleep stages. These stages are considered to be those where the body regenerates. People are difficult to waken during these stages.
The final stage is known as REM sleep, for rapid eye movement. If you were to observe a person in this stage of sleep, you would notice their eyes moving under their eyelids, and possibly some muscle twitches. This is the stage of sleep when we dream. This stage of sleep is important in learning and in memory consolidation. The rapid eye movement sleep is a part of the deep sleep.
Early in the night, we spend more time in stages 3 and 4 of each sleep cycle. As the night progresses, we spend more time in REM sleep. Whenever we are sleep deprived, our body will try first to catch up on deep sleep (stages 3 and 4) and REM. A person who is sleep-deprived will quickly fall asleep, and move rapidly from light sleep (stages 1 and 2) to deep slumber (stages 3 and 4).
It is natural for your body to alternate between light and deep sleep throughout the night. Though 8 hours is the sleep time objective, sleep needs are individual and you should consider your average deep sleep share over time to determine what level may be right for you and what factors affect the quality of your sleep.
Withings Pulse - Tracking my sleep
To start tracking your sleep, you have to perform the following steps:

Withings Pulse - Activating the automatic wake up detection
The automatic wake up detection feature allows your Withings Pulse™ Ox to automatically detect that you’re awake and to stop the sleep mode without any action on your part. Note that this feature is only available on Android for the moment.
- Open the Health Mate app.
- Go to My devices.
- Look for your Pulse and touch Settings.
- Activate Automatic wake up detection.
- Synchronize your Withings Pulse™ Ox with your app to finalize the change.

Withings Pulse - I'm having issues with my sleep data. What should I do?
This article will help you if you encounter any of the following issues:
If your data seems inaccurate, it may be that:
- You're also using a Withings Aura™ to track your sleep. If you use both devices, sleep data coming from the Withings Aura™ will systematically overwrite any sleep data coming from your Withings Pulse™ Ox.
- The automatic wake-up feature is enabled. If this is the case and if you have a tendency to get up in the middle of the night, it may stop the sleep mode and keep you from tracking the rest of your night. We advise that you disable this feature if it is the case.
If you still encounter issues, reach out to Customer Service by clicking the Contact us button at the bottom of the page.
If you can't start the Sleep mode, it probably means the touchscreen is not responsive. Reach out to Customer Service by clicking the Contact us button at the bottom of the page.
