Fitbit includes snore detection on Sense and Versa 3
, by raj, 12 min reading time
Fitbit has begun introducing its Snore and Noise detection feature, which was publicized earlier this year. This feature uses a built-in microphone on the Sense and the Versa 3 to listen for immediate noise while one sleeps and this was originally launched as a limited labs feature for only a few selected numbers of users. But now 9to5Google has noticed that the feature is getting a much wider rollout. This new feature listens for snoring and other ambient noises as you sleep, and will keep you aware with your sleep analysis. When sleep is sensed, Fitbit will activate the microphone, for you to then periodically pay attention to snoring every couple of minutes. It monitors things: snoring occasions and snoring intensity. This may be tracked among the rest of your sleep stats, and logged in a brand-new Score Report. The report will rate the severity of your snoring. Mild would be snoring for up to 10% of the night, while frequent would be more than 40% of the night. It will also look out for ambient sounds as you sleep and rate your sleeping environment from very quiet to very loud. This would help to figure out any sleep hygiene issues. To take advantage of this feature, you will need a Fitbit Premium subscription, but this could be a very interesting new data point for customers and a great asset for explaining why you are not well rested as you should be. However, there are a few warnings that might weaken the appeal. It looks like the snore feature will take up extensive battery life and Fitbit requires your device to be charged 40% before using it. The idea that one nights sleep monitoring could exhaust that much battery, when the Sense and Versa boast around 6 days of battery life with normal use, it makes one think twice about it. However, on the other hand we feel that snore detection is something that most people wont use forever. It is an asset you can use for a few nights to contemplate whether snoring is an issue for you, and after that you can use it occasionally. The feature is rolling out through an OTA update, so checkout the Fitbit app to see if its ready for you.
