According to a new Jawbone study, women get more sleep than men, as reported by Tech Times.
Jawbone looked at the sleep data from the millions of UP users around the world that used the device to track their sleep over the past two years and found that women get 20 minutes more sleep than men on average.
The data shows that this sleep gap is widest in the younger years of male and female Jawbone UP users and then narrows as they age. However, women still continue to get more sleep than men throughout their lifetimes.
Though women receive more sleep than men on average around the world, Jawbone’s data reveals that there are also cultural differences in how much sleep people get. For instance, Australia averages the most sleep at 7.25 hours a night while Japan averages the least at 6.1 hours.
Let’s remember that sleep wearable companies like this one have not shown that their devices are valid. There’s no evidence that the numbers in this ‘study’ are accurate. Sleep professionals and customers should insist on transparency and accountability in the commercial sleep monitor industry.
