Keeping a thorough sleep and lifestyle diary for seven consecutive days provides the information required to assess your sleep. It is typically the first step your doctor or sleep specialist will ask you to take before assessing your sleep issues. Circady requires 7 consecutive nights of sleep recorded in the app in order to generate your Sleep Report.
A Daytime Fatigue Score indicates the impact of your sleep quality on your daily life. Higher scores indicate more impact and lower scores indicate less. A score of 50 is considered average based on the general population. Circady will use this score, along with other data captured from your Sleep Diary, as part of your final Sleep Report.
A Sleep Quality Score gives healthcare providers insight into self-reported perceptions of your sleep, including sleep quality, sleep depth, and sleep satisfaction. Higher scores indicate lower sleep quality and lower scores indicate higher sleep quality. A score of 50 is considered average based on the general population. Your Sleep Quality Score, in combination with your Sleep Efficiency information and other data collected by Circady, will be synthesized to create your Sleep Report.
Sleep efficiency is calculated based on the total time you slept during a night compared to the total time you intended to sleep. Most people with a sleep efficiency of 85% and higher often feel like they have had a good night’s sleep.
Circady requires you to enter your experiences because it’s important that healthcare providers see how you feel and how you interpret your sleep in order for them to diagnose you accurately. Your Fitbit data supplements the information you enter but does not replace it.
Not quite. While Circady does have you track your sleep for at least 7 days, the purpose is to aid your clinician in providing accurate and personalized recommendations for improving your sleep. This app aims to be an “aid to diagnosis” for those suffering from what could be insomnia.

Other Questions about Circady
No. Circady does not give you an actual diagnosis. It’s what we call an “aid to diagnosis”. In other words, it is intended to provide information to help a licensed healthcare professional diagnose a sleep problem and determine the right treatment.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for insomnia (CBT-i) is widely recognized as the most effective sleep therapy available and is recommended by leading health institutions around the world. We believe that anyone who needs it should be able to access this therapy. That’s the main reason we’ve created Circady.
The Circady app is actually more than a 7-day sleep diary app. If CBT-i can help Circady users and they elect to seek treatment with one of our providers, the app unlocks sophisticated treatment capabilities that use video chat combined with mobile, wearable, and home-sensor technologies to allow customized, data-driven insomnia treatment from licensed medical professionals in the comfort of their own homes.
