Fitbit’s range of smart wearables offers a wide range of features, from tracking your step count and calorie burn to measuring your stress pattern, heart rate, and oxygen levels. It can help you level up your fitness game by tracking your overall activity, setting workout goals, keeping logs of your diet, and much more. One such feature is sleep mode. As important as a good workout is for a healthy body, sleep plays just as important a role if not more. In this article, I will share how to turn your Fitbit’s sleep mode on or off.

Quick Takeaway
You can turn your Fitbit sleep mode on or off just by opening quick settings and tapping on the crescent moon icon. Alternatively, you can go to settings and open quiet modes to enable or disable sleep mode.

What Is Sleep Mode?

Sleep mode is similar to DND (Do Not Disturb) mode on Fitbit as it silences all notifications, alerts, and reminders. Additionally, it also decreases the brightness of the screen and turns off the AOD (always on display), so that you can enjoy a good quality undisturbed sleep.

Tom's love for watches started when his grandfather gifted him his Rolex watch when he turned 18! Being a teenager it was a big deal for him. Later when he got his first job he bought Fossil Palm Pilot back in 2003 which was a smartwatch. Since then smartwatches have come a long way and so is Tom's love for them. His experience with watches inspired him to start Wearholic and share his knowledge of wearables including watches, smartwatches, smart glasses, & smart clothing.
