If you wear a fitness watch to bed, typically, how many steps does it read in the morning?

Asked by LuckyGuy (42448points) 1 week ago

I was given a hand-me-down Garmin Forerunner 235 from someone who graduated to an Apple watch. The Garmin is simple and tracks steps and heart rate. Per instructions, I’ve been wearing it 24/7 so it can learn my physiology. (You know how I love data! Fun!)
I noticed that when I get up in the morning it has already logged about 250 steps. I guess the 2x per night I get up to use the bathroom and check on things accrues steps. Free exercise!
How many steps do you accrue by morning?

No more than 40 or so. It’s from when I get up and go to the bathroom, too, I assume. Unless I’m marching in my sleep.

I take my Garmin off before going to bed. I don’t get up at night, I’m out until morning.

How far away is your toilet, that you need 250 steps to go piss twice?
Are you a sleep walker?

@ragingloli When I get up I might walk out to the kitchen, check the lights in the garage, maybe throw some wood in the wood burning stove, check mouse traps. The steps add up I guess.

Gotta eat the mice when they are still fresh.

My Apple watch says I have taken 78 steps today (6:00 a.m. PT), which is from getting up once in the night and then when I got up for the day, walking to the kitchen and living room for coffee and to work from home. But no mysterious steps that go bump in the night.

I have an Apple Watch.

I got up to pee 4 times from 12 midnight until 4 am (there’s nothing wrong with my prostrate gland). The toilet is about 30 feet from my bed. Apple Watch indicated 39 steps total.

Must by doing more shuffl’n than stepp’n. HA!

I rarely wear it to bed. I have a fitbit and an apple watch. I sleep well enough to not worry about how many hours. 8–9 hours solid. If I were to wear a wearable to bed, I would get about 50 steps for a nighttime cookie cabinet raid.
