My son has a Garmin. I have a Fitbit Alta. We decided to switch last night to see how our sleeping scores changed. I had a very bad night, like every night, I couldn't sleep.

Check the HR Sleep thread on how to do that. Re the sync to Garmin Connect, I have thought about it .. and it may be something for the future. Garmin Vivoactive has sleep tracking (glorified motion tracking). Since FR225 has a heart rate monitor, does this track your sleep better, like REM sleep, light sleep, awake periods etc? Did you manage to test that feature? If not, do you think Garmin could enable this in the future with a firmware update?
