Kevin Lynch over slaappatronen op Apple Watch en meer
Kevin Lynch is in zijn rol bij Apple als Vice President of Technology degene die verantwoordlijk is voor watchOS. Hij is dan ook altijd te zien tijdens keynotes, als hij ons alle nieuwe dingen in watchOS laat zien, zoals het bijhouden van slaappatronen in watchOS 7.

Het is dezelfde Kevin Lynch die geïnterviewd is door zowel the Independent als door CNet, hieronder kan je een aantal van de belangrijkste citaten uit allebei die interviews lezen. Daaruit blijkt bijvoorbeeld dat toen Apple vijf jaar geleden de Apple Watch introduceerde dat er toen al werd nagedacht over het bijhouden van slaappatronen, en dat het in de afgelopen jaren daar zelf uitgebreid en veel onderzoek naar heeft gedaan.

We have spent a lot of time learning about the science of sleep.

The focus is really about getting enough sleep and the main thing about that is the difficulty of going to bed. There are so many things in the world to distract us and occupy our attention. Supporting people in managing that transition is where the magic is.

In our testing, what we've found is that it's very difficult to understand what's going on in your brain from a device that's not reading the electrical signals of your brain.

In any of these adventures we go on when building things here we ask, what will make the most difference for people that, from a mainstream perspective, will be easy, helpful and empowering.
Citaat
In terms of measuring your sleep, and this is a philosophy that we've used across Apple Watch, is to reinforce positive behaviour. For example, we congratulate people on meeting their sleep goals, so if you've set a goal of sleeping for some number of hours and you keep hitting that goal or exceeding it, Apple Watch will congratulate you on that. If you don't meet your sleep goals, then it doesn't say anything.

Many sleep apps show information about REM cycles and other data like that. And we've looked a lot into that.

Even in our studies, we had people wear EEGs on their heads, so we got insight into the electrical activity of their brain, in addition to what we're able to sense on the wrist with Apple Watch. And we've learned a lot about how the main thing here is really about duration.
Citaat
Movement of your arm is an input, but it's not a complete picture of what's going on inside your brain.

You can't really coach yourself to have more or less REM stages. We felt like that wasn't the best way Apple could add value here on sleep. We focused on the transition to the bed, which we think is way more actionable, and will result in people getting a better night's sleep, which then has secondary effects of perhaps your REM stages sorting themselves.
Citaat
There could be anxiety that people have about going to sleep, and that anxiety itself can actually cause more problems in terms of going to sleep. Many people are already well aware that they haven't been getting enough sleep, and so we're not adding to that, but we are positively acknowledging when you have achieved your goals.
Citaat
Companies like Fitbit have used anonymized user data for years to study demographic sleep patterns and improve observations on sleep, but Apple doesn't plan to do that. Instead, Apple has been building its machine learning models from data collected through internal studies.

"And that takes a long time. So we've been working on this for a while," Lynch says. "We treat the data that's being collected on a user's device with a high level of sensitivity around privacy. …  Apple is not seeing your sleep data."
