S'pore among cities with least hours of sleep

Sleepless in Singapore? Apparently so, according to a study released recently.

Singapore is among the cities in the world with the least hours of sleep, clocking an average of 6 hours and 32 minutes a day. At the bottom of the list is Tokyo, where people sleep for just 5 hours and 46 minutes per night on average. South Korea comes close at 5 hours and 55 minutes.

Who sleeps the most? People in Melbourne, with an average of 7 hours and 5 minutes per night, followed by London at 7 hours and 2 minutes.

These are some of the findings from a vast new dataset released to The Wall Street Journal by Jawbone, the makers of the UP, a digitised wristband that tracks how its users move and sleep.

According to WSJ, the data tracks hundreds of thousands of UP users from Beijing to Orlando and gives an interesting glimpse into sleeping patterns.

The report did not say how many cities were included in the study.
