According to CNET, data from Jawbone finds that the people of India are getting less sleep than their western neighbors, getting an average of 6.5 hours of sleep per night.

Eight hours is said to be the sweet spot of sleep, but it’s an amount that many in the west struggle to get.

It’s even worse in India though, with wearables maker Jawbone on Tuesday releasing a report on habits of users in the populous nation. Compiled after analysing data from Up fitness trackers, the report showed the average night of sleep among Indian users hovered around 6.5 hours.

Kolkata’s residents got the least sleep, with an average of 6 hours and 16 minutes, while those in Panaji enjoyed the most at 6 hours and 46 minutes. Jawbone says it analysed aggregated data from thousands of Up users throughout the year for the report.

The findings show that Indians are getting less sleep than their friends in the west. Australia is one of the most well-rested nations, hitting just over eight hours of sleep a night, according to the Australasian Sleep Association. Meanwhile, Sleep Cycle’s data shows that the average person person in the UK gets between seven and eight hours, with America lagging behind, at just under seven hours per night.
