Fitbit's Sense and Versa 3 watches can now track your snoring at night

The feature will analyze snore-specific noises in your sleep environment and give you detailed results in the morning.

What you need to know

  • Fitbit is rolling out a new "Snore & Noise Detect" feature to its Sense and Versa 3 smartwatches.
  • The feature will allow users to learn if snoring or the noise level in their surroundings may be disturbing their sleep.
  • You can enable the feature from the "Sleep" page in the Fitbit app.

The Fitbit Sense and Versa 3, which are two of the best Android smartwatches, have started receiving a new feature that enables them to "gauge snoring during sleep" (via 9to5Google).

The feature uses the built-in microphone on the smartwatches to monitor noise in your sleep environment. Fitbit says the feature will help you "learn if snoring or the noise level in your sleep surroundings may be disturbing your sleep."

If you have a Fitbit Sense or Versa 3 smartwatch, you can enable the new snore detection feature from the "Sleep" page within the Fitbit app. Once enabled, your smartwatch will start to "sample, measure and collect information about the noise in your environment" once it detects that you're asleep.

Since the feature analyzes noise levels and looks for snore-specific noises every few seconds, it does have an impact on battery life. Fitbit recommends your smartwatch have at least 40% charge before you go to bed.

The data collected by the feature can be accessed from the Sleep section in the morning. If you want to stop using the feature, you can disable it by going to settings the top-right corner of the Fitbit app and tapping the last toggle. You can also delete all the "snore and noise" data in your account at any time.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
