To commemorate World Sleep Day on Friday, March 18, Zepp Health Releases the 2021 International Sleep White Paper and reveals Indonesians have the least amount of sleep


The smart wearable company, Zepp Health, released on March 18, the 2021 International Sleep White Paper. With data captured from their devices called Amazfit and other Zepp smart wearables, it reported key findings related to the duration of sleep of over 26 million global users. 

Its purpose is to help users understanding the correlation between sleep conditions and health status. For security purposes of its users, the collected data are processed with data masking techniques that secure personal information privacy. 

The findings

Zepp Health is a company that aims to establish a global health ecosystem by integrating health with technology. The company aims that people could effectively connect relevant segments of the healthcare industry and encourage them to better understand their health and wellness needs.

The company's core business has developed a platform of proprietary technology. Using the smart wearable chip, biometric sensors and data algorithms, and energy-efficient OS, they drive a broadening line of smart health products for consumers, and analytics services.

The highlighted findings of the data shows that the global average sleep duration has decreased compared to 2020, standing at 7 hours and 9 minutes in 2021. In the study, it is found that female users are sleeping relatively longer than male users. 

For its global users, Belgium has obtained the longest average sleep duration of 7.5 hours per night. It is then followed by the Republic of Ireland and the Netherlands. Comparatively and surprisingly, Indonesia has the least amount of sleep with an average sleep duration of 6 hours 36 minutes, followed by Japan and Malaysia.

Meanwhile, the Harvard School of Public Health finds that a good night sleep is the key to maintain our health. In Zepp Health research, it is found that with an average of 7 to 8 hours of sleep, the body can have better performance. Obviously, Indonesia has not fulfilled that standard. This could only mean that Indonesian people need to be more aware of their sleeping time. 

Sleep is important

Harvard stated that getting too little sleep exposed people to a higher risk of obesity and cardiovascular diseases. Zepp Health 2021 International Sleep White Paper not only examined the sleeping duration, but also considered the body mass index (BMI), Resting heart rate (RHR), and step count as essential parts when accumulating the comprehensive overview of sleep status for better health management. 

Journal of Sleep Research 2022 found that the Covid-19 pandemic significantly contributes to insomnia and sleep deficiency or deprivation. Meanwhile, sleep deprivation has been found to lead to serious health problems. While adult users from across the globe have sleep deprivation on the rise, Zepp Health suggests that active lifestyles can lead to better sleep, lower resting heart rates, and a healthier BMI.
