Re: I am disturbed because my new Galaxy Active watch tells me that I don’t get enough ‘deep sleep’. I am ok, time amount-wise and in the REM stage – but I don’t hit the healing deep sleep. Three days of data is not enough, I will watch it for two weeks. But, it still bothers me. I flip/flop and move a lot, but I have always done that….maybe my heart rate runs higher for the deep sleep range. Maybe this is normal with peri-menopause. Maybe I have a problem, I will watch it.
In general, sleep experts are negative about people who get obsessed with their watch telling them that they don’t get enough deep sleep. Sleep is a very individual and complex issue. But the first thing to know is that everyone wakes up during a night’s sleep…we just don’t remember it.

In addition, you are absolutely right: peri-menopause can cause sleep problems. Read:
And here’s a very brief summary from the NYT about how to sleep better.
Hope some of this info is helpful.
