If you’re one of the people that invested in an activity/calorie tracker, then you’ve landed yourself in a statistic.
The punched in and calibrated information you get on your wearable device is collected in a database that shows the overall sleeping and activity patterns of a city’s populace.
Jawbone, the makers of UP, a digitized wristband that tracks how its users move and sleep, has released a data set based on hundreds of thousands of users, from Tokyo, to Dubai and New York.
Although the results are based strictly on UP users, their movement and sleep patterns can still tell an amazing story about the city’s culture and people.
Here are some interesting facts:
-The city with the most sleep is Melbourne, Australia, with an average of 7 hours and 5 minutes per night.
-Dubai is one of the cities with the least amount of sleep, logging in at 6 hours and 32 minutes. Sleeping patterns of the entire population shifted dramatically during the month of Ramadan and the total amount of shut-eye fell even further.
-Earliest to bed and earliest to rise is Brisbane, Australia, at 10:57pm and 6:29am respectively.
-Latest to bed and latest to rise is Moscow, Russia, punching in at 12:46am and 8:08am.
-Most active city is Stockholm, Sweden, with 8,876 steps a day. A close second is London with 8,815 total activity units calculated.
