Jawbone tracks big cities’ ‘Zzz’s

Here’s a neat confluence of my lousy night’s sleep last night and the rise of big data and wearable technology.

Thanks to the Wall Street Journal and data provided by Jawbone, makers of one of those fitness bracelets, we now know all kinds of stuff.  Like which city’s residents get the most sleep: that’d be Melbourne, Australia at seven hours and five minutes a night.

The least? Tokyo at five hours and 45 minutes.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.  

😱 Halfpriced hoodies! 😱 

This weekend only, when you donate $90 or $8/month, you can snag our cozy new Marketplace zipup hoodie. Don’t wait– this offer ends Sunday at midnight.
