Polar Sleep PlusTM
The Polar app on your M600 tracks your sleep if you wear the device at night. It detects when you fall asleep and when you wake up, and it collects your sleep data for deeper analysis in the Polar Flow app and web service. The smartwatch observes your hand movement during the night to track all interruptions over your entire sleep span and tells you how much time you actually spent asleep.
To get started you need to set your preferred sleep time in the Polar Flow settings. Then simply start wearing your M600 at night. You can read more detailed information on the Sleep Plus feature from [this support document].

Sleep data in Polar Flow app and web service
Your sleep data is shown in the Polar Flow app and web service after the Polar app on your M600 is synced. The Flow app and web service show your sleep data in one night and week views. In the Flow web service, you can view your sleep under the Sleep tab in your Diary. You can also include your sleep data to Activity reports under the Progress tab.
In the Polar Flow app and web service, you can set Your preferred sleep time to define how long you aim to sleep every night. You can also rate your sleep. Also, if the times shown for when you fell asleep and woke up are not correct, you can edit them in the app and in the web service. You will receive feedback on how you slept based on your sleep data, your preferred sleep time and your sleep rating.
By following your sleep patterns you can see if they’re affected by any changes in your daily life and find the right balance between rest, daily activity and training.
