​​​​​​They will still do bugs as separate updates.

That is a good omen.

I hope they don't decide to start charging for their new feature updates... everything seems to be going to a subscription model.

Mine was 57.

DCRainmaker says they're changing how they calculate that score, adding weight to restlessness. I've always been skeptical of activity trackers' ability to say much about sleep, but I trust them to get movement right so I feel it's a good change. I think the REM etc stuff isn't very well grounded in reality.

I was awake for at least half of what is labeled REM sleep. I would say last night was average. I've had far worse, and occasionally, better sleep.

What I hate is lying awake all night worrying about various end-of-the-world scenarios and whether 6-bolt brake rotors are inherently inferior to center lock, and then Mr. Garmin congratulates me with gas-lighter smugness on my excellent night of sleep.
