Getting some sleep out of Fitbits

January 5, 2014

After previous posts playing with Fitbit API (part 1, part 2) I stumbled upon something a bit harder for sleep …

Previous data belong to the “activities” category. In this category it is easy to get data about a specific activity over several days in one request. All parameters related to sleep are not in the same category and I couldn’t find a way to get all the sleep durations (for instance) in one query (*). So I updated the code to requests all sleep parameters for each and every day of 2013 … and I hit the limit of 150 requests per hours.

Hours asleep (March-April 2013)This graph is what I achieved so far. I didn’t sleep much in March-April 2013: on average 4.9 hours per night. The interesting thing is that I can understand why by going back to my agenda at that time (work, study, family …). As soon as I can get additional data it would be interesting to see if sleep durations will increase later on.

(*) If you know how to get all sleep durations for 2013 in one query, let me know!
