Jawbone has released a new app, UP Coffee, that shows people the relationship between caffeine intake and projected sleep time through visual displays of how “wired” or sleepy they will be if they drink that cup of coffee or cola.

The app is named UP Coffee but it helps users track their caffeine intake in general, whether it’s from coffee, soda, tea or energy drinks. Users can log in their caffeine intake and the app helps them visualize the amount of caffeine in their system through an animation of little balls jumping around inside a beaker. Users will also be able to see the points where they are “sleep ready” or “wired” based on their caffeine intake.

After a few days of tracking caffeine intake and sleep times, the app will be able to tell the user stats like the amount of sleep they lose for every 100mg of caffeine they take.

The app isn’t exclusive for those with an UP wristband. The iOS app is free and can be used by anyone. When used with the UP wristband, the app helps people understand how their coffee habits affect their sleep patterns.

Jawbone’s release of the UP Coffee app coincided with its release of data from a comprehensive sleep behavior study based on data from their UP system. The company analyzed the data of over 1,600 UP wearers and over 5,000 nights of sleep to look into the relationship of sleep and how people feel the next day. According to the results, on average, users who got at least 7 hours of sleep were 30% more likely to feel rested the next day. Also, those who got 7 hours of sleep were more likely to report feeling optimistic, patient, focused, productive, and attractive.

The study also revealed interesting insights into what causes lack of sleep for the UP users. Almost half attributed their sleeplessness to stress, 20% to room temperature, and 18% to not feeling tired. The study also showed how mobiles and devices affected people’s sleep.

The company’s press release on the sleep behavior study can be found on their website. The company shared its findings in time for National Sleep Awareness Month.
