How Smart Time Zone works 🛫

Smart Time Zone provides more accurate ReadiScores when capturing sleep data during travel, at various time zones.

When you enable Smart Time Zone on Readi, any time zones you cross while wearing your ReadiBand will be factored into your ReadiScore, making your estimated Score more accurate.

Smart Time Zone is an optional feature that can be enabled by tapping the More icon on the bottom right of the screen. From there, tap Settings > Time Zone > then slide the toggle to turn on Smart Time Zone.

How it works

Travelling can affect the accuracy of your ReadiScore, due to differences in sunrise and sunset times across the globe. The greater the distance travelled from home, the greater the potential impact on your Score. 

When Readi captures new data from your ReadiBand, it will now consider your time zone when you travel. The last known time zone for a given day will be applied to your Score on that day.

Be sure to open your Readi at every new destination, so that it can capture new sleep data and any new time zone information. Please note, Readi obtains data from your ReadiBand, at most, once every four hours.

Note on privacy

Your location, obtained only when you opt-in to Smart Time Zone, is used only to determine your time zone and to provide you a more accurate Score during your time away from home. Smart Time Zone won't share your location with your employer/organization or any 3rd parties. 

Smart Time Zone indicator in the Fatigue Science Web app

On your sleep report in the Web app, a Smart Time Zone indicator will be displayed on days when a different time zone from your usual time zone is used to calculate your ReadiScore. The number of time zones away from your usual time zone is visible, as are your sleep and wake times in the travel time zone.

Note to managers involved in setting up locations in the Fatigue Science Web app

To ensure Smart Time Zone recognizes periods of travel as intended, ensure the Web app location details are completed. Specifically, include both a city and state/province/territory detail, where applicable, to improve Smart Time Zone accuracy in time zones that cover large geographic areas and where there may be more than one city by the same name in the same time zone. 

To recap, the Smart Time Zone indicator in Web app will function as designed if the following conditions are met:

  1. ReadiBand Wearers have opted-in to Smart Time Zone in Readi

  2. ReadiBand Wearers have travelled outside of their home timezone and sync their ReadiBands while travelling

  3. The location in Web app where ReadiBand Wearers are managed includes location details such as both a city and state/province/territory, where applicable.
