Automatically Beeminding Bedtime via FitBit?

I’m a newbee, and after reading Matthew Walker’s “Why We Sleep,” I’ve become convinced that beeminding my sleep will have the highest productivity/well-being-multiplier of any behavior change I could make (Sleep is Your Superpower, after all).

In the spirit of tracking inputs rather than outputs, I’d like to track the time I go to bed, as measured automatically by my FitBit. I know BeeMinder has options for integrating “total time asleep,” from the fitbit, but I’d really like one for bed time.

Is this possible? If so, how do I do it? If not, why not?


It’s one of those “I don’t know how it really is for you so I’ll explain how I do it” replies. So feel free to ignore.

It seems like Fitbit only calculates the sleep time after

I don’t have a Fitbit, but I use sleep as android. That one can send a sleep time started webhook to ifttt, which I use to add a point to bei der if it’s within my bedtime.

Thank you for your reply. I’ve tried IFTTT, but it seems there’s no webhook for FitBit’s “Time Asleep.”

As for the delay in calculation, I don’t think that’s much of a problem. Right now I just manually click a “did-you-go-to-bed-on-time-last-night-per-FitBit” box, so I’d be happy if I just didn’t have to do the manual step.
