Garmin and Apple studies show how badly we’re sleeping – and how to fix it

Smartwatches from the likes of Garmin and Apple now come with some impressive sleep-tracking skills – and a pair of new studies from the two companies show the wearables can also give us fascinating insights into our collective shut-eye. The short answer? Most of us could definitely be sleeping better.

The broad conclusion from both studies is that around 70% of us are falling short of the recommended sleep duration or quality.
