According to the data collected by Jawbone fitness tracker – UP, people in major Indian cities get around 6-hours and 30-mins of sleep on average.
With Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, and Pune closest to the average amount of sleep, while Panaji (Goa), even being the party city of the country get most sleep at 6-hours and 44-minutes on average.
Information such as – step count, bed time, wake time, as well as sleep was recorded by Jawbone UP fitness tracker based on the people who regularly used the device.
According to the report, since India has two time zones but follows single standard time, the wake time differs between western and eastern cities. As sun rises earlier in cities like Kolkata, so people tend to wake up earlier than in Mumbai.
Based on the report, Bangalore – 6-hours 31-minutes, Delhi – 6-hours 33-minutes, Mumbai – 6-hours 32-minutes, while Panaji (Goa) get the most sleep at 6-hours and 44-minutes. Also mentioned on the report, even if people in Panaji sleep the most, they are the most active with 8,792 step count per day on average.
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!
In any given week, some religious festival or national event is being observed in all or part of India – there are well over sixty national and regional holidays in a year (most offices and schools maintain six day work weeks to make sure work gets done!). We looked at how these events might affect people’s sleep patterns – be it due to celebrations with fireworks and dancing or because of prayers offered at night.
Tracking fitness information could really be helpful in analyzing people’s habits and daily activity to make better health related issues.
