Hey Joe, I totally agree with the importance of sleep for recovery. I have struggled with sleep for years and have learned the most important thing for me is relaxing in bed, whether I sleep or not. Getting stressed about not sleeping just leads to more pronounced sleep issues. I found 'The Sleep Book' by Dr Guy Meadows very enlightening.
I tried sleep monitors but found that they only really told me what I already knew, by being aware of how I feel. I also found the use of technology just before sleep hindered relaxation before sleep. I think such monitors might actually be more useful for coaches to see how their athletes may be recovering than for the athletes themselves (or use 'Metrics' on TP) but each to their own.
