I love sleep. I love a comfortable bed and my pillow that cradles my head just right. Sometimes, going to bed is the thing I look forward to most out of my day. Studies have shown that sleep is vital to development, learning, memory retention, and organ health — not only is it healthy, getting a good night’s sleep just makes me feel better. But even though I try to go to bed at a reasonable time each night, I frequently find that I’m tired throughout the day. Am I actually getting the sleep I need?

A whole industry of fitness trackers has cropped up in an effort to answer this question. Fitbit tracks your sleep with the Flex and Force, Jawbone does it with the UP band, and Basis just expanded the functionality of its B1 band to include even more data about your different sleep cycles. Ultimately, the goal of sleep tracking in all of these fitness trackers is to help you get a better night’s sleep and therefore improve your health. But is that even possible? Will tracking my sleep actually give me the information I need to improve my night’s rest?

I spent a week wearing the $199 Basis 2014 Carbon Steel Edition to sleep every night to find out.
