Add the ability to input sleep data
I am writing to you to request that Training Peaks ("TP") add a sleep recordation feature. The “Sleep Feature”, which would enable athletes to (i) upload data from sleep tracking devices (i.e. jawbone, fitbit, Lark) or (ii) input such sleep information manually, similar to the way an individual inputs foods that are not listed in TP's nutrition database.
I believe the addition of the Sleep Feature would be beneficial as it would allow coaches and athletes to (i) compare and correlate the sleep data with their performance data, heart rate variability, and overall quality of training and (ii) understand the quantity athletes are sleeping. As I am sure TP is aware, sleep is becoming a greater focus in sports and I believe it would be an advantage to have the capability to compare sleep data with all the other data already input into TP.
Early this week FitnessSyncer released an update that allows for the syncing of sleep data from Fitbit, Jawbone, Garmin, etc. to TrainingPeaks. FitnessSyncer has been syncing workouts to TrainingPeaks for a few years. Expanding that functionality to sleep, steps, etc. has been something that we have been discussing for a while, and we are very excited that this is now available for all TrainingPeaks users.
FitnessSyncer has a both free and premium accounts. Below is a coupon for 1 month free. They are also running a 25% off sale on annual subscriptions until Jan 7, 2017.

We recommend reading through their FAQ page to get familiar with all the features.
- Word of advice, make sure you set your timezone correctly in FitnessSyncer before syncing to TrainingPeaks. *
FitnessSyncer also provides mobile apps to sync data with Apple’s HealthKit and Samsung’s S Health app on Android. This data can then be sync’d to TrainingPeaks.
Another thing to note, is do to limitations on Fitbit’s API, FitnessSyncer can not sync the GPS activity data or the intra-day HR data from Fitbit.
What's the status on syncing auto-syncing Sleep and HRV data from Garmin into TP AND showing it intuitively in the dashboard?
It's frustrating that TP is relying on old platforms and shuttling so many resources to the overkill WKO. Honestly, I'm actively looking for alternatives to TP as my personal and coaching activity & health tracking & scheduling platform.

Yes please connect sleep as android, or settings from hrv4training

I'd love to see integration with sleep as android
Please could you add this. The current focus on recovery being so important it would be great to add. I use Sleep As Android and that would be great. One issue I guess is standardizing it. But even if it were just app by app based before working out how to compare between apps.
I use Sleep Cycle which syncs with Apple Health. If TP App could get the data from Apple Health that would solve the problem.
Come on TrainingPeaks team. This is a no-brainer. You already have Garmin sync set up and running. How hard is it to add the sleep data?

Android and ios
Tracking sleep time can be hard and is often imprecise or inaccurate. Apps like Migraine Buddy can calculate your sleep hours based on your phone activity. It works really well and it just sends you a confirmation notification every morning.
I already communicated with them. An app sync would be amazing.
Thanks for reading and sorry for bad english.
Some link with Apple Health would be useful to sync this type of data. For example, I use Sleep Cycle app to track my sleep quality, amount of sleep, time of sleep, and resting heart rate. These are all fields in the metrics of TP, yet at this point, it's all manual entry. Similarly, weight and bodyfat % are tracked in the Apple Health app as well (pulled in by MyFitnessPal), so an easy sync or even sync from MFP would be great.
Now that the new Garmin devices track sleep it would probably be easy to add
Still not? Please!
Any update on this?
Is this still on the radar??
Automatic import of sleep metrics would be a very helpful addition.
