We designed Motiv Ring to track your sleep seamlessly and consistently. Our app was designed to give you information that’s meaningful and actionable, not just a bunch of data points you don’t know what to do with. By looking at your movement patterns during your sleep, Motiv is able to give you an easy-to-interpret snapshot of what’s happening to you when your head hits the pillow.
The Sleep Detail screen is where you can see your last night’s sleep as well as the past 7 days of sleep, which we use to show you your average sleep and wake times. The white bar means you were sleeping. Gaps in your sleep are when you were awake. You can also see how restless your sleep was. Periods when you move and change your position while sleeping will now be displayed as restlessness within your Sleep Detail Card. The thicker the red line, the longer the period of restlessness, and the darker the shade of red, the more intense the movement.
Sleep matters! The science is pretty clear: getting enough quality sleep has positive effects on our health. Sleeping right can prevent illness, increase energy levels and productivity, and improve brain function.
The closer your bedtime and wake-up times are to your Sleep Trend, the more likely you are to get restful sleep. National health organizations and fitness groups recommend adults should sleep 7-8 hours per night on a regular basis to promote optimal health.

App version 1.3 has the added feature allowing you to edit your sleep.
Here’s how it’s done:
Tapping on the Sleep Card in your Daily Feed will display information about the duration of your previous night’s sleep and periods of restlessness.
When you are looking at your sleep detail, tapping on the edit icon (three horizontal dots) in the top right corner of the screen will open up a menu that will allow you to edit your previous night’s sleep. You can input the time that you fell asleep by either tapping on the tab above your sleep graph, or using the wheel menu at the bottom.
Just like editing the start of your sleep period, you can edit your wake time, by eithertapping on the tab above your sleep graph, or by using the wheel menu to input the time that you woke up.
Once you have edited your Sleep Card, tap the save checkmark. Your Sleep Detail card and your sleep trends for the week will display your new edited sleep details.
