Timing in the Wild: Developmental Progression of Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, and Cardiometabolic Health

Wearable devices are used by nearly a third of the world's population on a daily basis to track activity, food intake, and sleep. Other gadgets monitor blood sugar, blood pressure, heart rate variability, and respiration. Technological advances have made continuous 24 hour recording of real-time data accessible for health researchers.

Sleep timing and sleep duration have changed dramatically over the past several decades. We now live in a 24-hour society with greater nighttime access to technology, exposure to artificial light at bedtime, and inconsistency in routines.

Much of the research evidence is correlational; yet, intriguing questions have been raised about the plausible causal relations linking sleep, circadian misalignment, and cardiometabolic disorders. Ultimately, wearable sleep technology holds promise for advancing our understanding of sleep changes across the lifecourse and may lead to new knowledge about the mechanisms underlying cardiometabolic health to inform successful prevention targets.
