Garmin’s sleep tracking has now become more accurate thanks to this Nap Detection upgrade

Garmin has released an update to the Nap Detection feature, which allows users to manually enter the start and end time of a nap into Garmin Connect.

First released with the Garmin Venu 3 in September 2023, Nap Detection is designed to detect daytime sleep without any manual input. It records for up to three hours, aiming to use your accelerometer and other physiological sensors, such as heart rate, to automatically detect when you’re sleeping outside your normal sleep window.
