Jawbone India today shared an interesting insight on sleep and activity patterns of Jawbone UP users across the country. While the report was aggregated from all user, it focused more on urban cities like New Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, Panaji and Pune.
“The average sleep time is mostly uniform at around six and half hours in all cities, with Panaji (Goa) getting the most sleep. Ironically, more sleep does not make Panaji a lazy city. To the contrary, more sleep makes Panaji emerge as the city with the most steps, and staying up the latest at night—so it is indeed India’s party city,” said the report.
Users in these cities mostly go to bed between 11:50PM and 12:21AM. Also, on an average, no one wakes up before 7AM in the morning.
“The wake times vary significantly across the country. India is wide enough to have at least two time zones, but follows a single Shift in Hours from Average standard time. The sun rises over an hour earlier in the eastern side of the country than the western side and the early bedtimes on the east show how our bodies adjust for this. Kolkota on the east coast wakes up thirty minutes earlier than Mumbai on the west coast. Chennaites just like to wake up early,” added the report.
Most fitness bands recommend users to complete at least 10,000 steps in a day to stay fit. However, the maximum average steps among these cities vary between 6000 and 7500. Panaji has the highest average step count at 8792.
