SleepWatch is a health-focused sleep app that automatically tracks sleep with
the Apple Watch. It uses A.I. to help you track, achieve, and improve. Don't
have an Apple Watch? SleepWatch can be used without an Apple Watch by entering
sleep times manually. HOW IT WORKS ---------------...
What’s in it for me?
Like so many businesses / products / services today, we are often asked for our feedback. Human nature is to be helpful; we obligingly fill out surveys or answer a few brief questions. To what end? I’m giving my time and opinion for their benefit. I don’t mind doing this occasionally — on my terms. DAILY alerts to “tell us more about yourself” besides the “how rested do you feel today?” All while, I do not see a reward of my participation in these queries for the data crunchers and bean counters. Of course (I assume), if I pay for the extra features, I might gain some insight from my routine do-gooder helpful and honest responses. Please add a setting / option to opt out of the survey pool. On to a fresh complaint: the sleep detection is losing accuracy, reporting far less sleep than I actually get. Nearly every day for this week, I’ve needed to manually set my sleep times. What gives? One more thing, if I fail to charge my watch or just plain forget to wear it for one night, then comparison data returns “ not enough info, please wear your watch at night” when there is clearly 783+ days of info on me with only random single night gaps” surely a trend greater than 3 days would yield a far more accurate picture off sleep health. Can you compensate for the occasional fall from grace wherein the user bares all (wrists) in the boudoir?
I love the accuracy of this app. It’s very simple to read all the information that it takes during my sleep. I’m a stay at home mom and I’m always the last one in bed and the first one up. I bought this app because I knew I wasn’t sleeping enough and it was affecting my health. My doctor recommended I track my sleep so I gave this a try. I like that it showed when I went to bed and how much sleep I actually got while in bed. The longer I used the app the more it learned my patterns. I also like that it knows when I’ve had a really bad night of sleep and I receive the questionnaire asking why I did so bad sleeping. For example last week my son was extremely sick running a fever of 103.7 all night so I was up all night checking on him and changing out ice packs to help keep him comfortable until I could get him to the doctor the next morning. My app detected a total of 1 and half hours of sleep. I was able to tell the app I was “disrupted by a sick child”. Thanks for creating this app and continuing to make it that much better! 😊
Doubt’s to Believer
At first I was like “this won’t work” but after using it for a few months I found the app very useful as well as helpful. The app will basically gather your sleep information, over time, and set up a plan based on your sleep patterns. I am pleased with how accurate the app is at taking information and setting a plan you can follow to help you improve sleep. An example, for me, is that if I burn 350 active calories a day my heart rate dip is greater. So my daily goal is to reach that 350 mark because it does drop my heart rate. Also, this app continually updates so it just keeps getting better and better! My suggestion is simply to download this app if you want a great study of your individual sleep pattern and want a better nights rest! You will look forward every morning to see how well you slept. You have nothing to lose, the app is free, and a good nights sleep to gain!
Good but not perfect
I’ll start with the fact that I love this app. It has really helped me better understand my sleep and how it affects my overall health. But this app seems to track every period of low activity as sleep. For a few months I wasn’t using it because I didn’t like wearing my watch at night. When I recently started again I found that it had inputted whole weeks worth of incorrect “sleep” data from when I wore my watch during the day that was either naps, or times when I was reading, watching movies, sitting in a car for long periods of time, or just relaxing in any way. You can’t edit data that’s more than a week old, so I can’t delete these days and all this bad info is factored into my “average” scores. Now I have to check the previous night’s data after every day to make sure it didn’t count some relaxed period as sleep and throw everything off. This app is really good in a lot of ways, but it’s not for passive use.
Best sleep app I’ve tried
I’ve probably tested 5 of the top sleep tracking apps available. This is by far my favorite for a few reasons. I find it to be the easiest to use, while also offering the most features. All I need to do is wear my Apple Watch to bed. The app automatically senses when I’m in bed and starts tracking sleep and heart rate. I don’t know how it calculates and figures everything out, but it is always shockingly accurate. Highly recommended free and paid versions. I tried other sleep apps and was unimpressed with the limited, pseudo-sciencey data tracking abilities, such as the app that claims to gauge your sleep quality using only your phone’s internal microphone located 2-3 away on the nightstand. This is silly and obviously inaccurate. This app analyzes data from Apple Watch to record body movement, heart rate, physical movement (ie. walking around vs relaxing in on the couch vs lying in bed) to determine what time the user starts trying to fall asleep, when they lose consciousness, and how deep their sleep is every night. I don’t bother with so-called “smart alarms” that claim to wake you up at the most optimal time within a 30-60 minute time window. I want to sleep as long as possible each morning. There’s no way I’m getting out of bed 40 minutes earlier just because some app *claims* I’ll be at optimal in my routine
Consistent, accurate and dependable
This app works well, never fails, never crashes. It asks follow up questions in a non-obtrusive way if there are extremes in sleep (poor sleep quality, broken nights of sleep, etc). It is accurate in detecting when I go to sleep and wake up. I believe the stats are spot on - for example if I have a couple of glasses of wine before bed, it accurately captures this in my average sleeping bpm - which, if you don’t know, is always lower (and healthier) if you don’t drink right before bed. It categories sleeping bpm into ranges based on the dip - not ideal, normal, ideal. Sleeping rate bpm is correlated to cardiovascular health. I had a cardiac ablation last year from tachycardia so I carefully monitor my bpm both awake and sleeping. This is one of the single most useful apps I have installed in my phone and watch - and I have a LOT of apps!
I am super bummed about my rating and this app. I bought the app after reading the reviews. While I understand that nothing will be full proof and 100% accurate with recording my sleep by just wearing a watch. However, I’d be more accurate knowing my sleep if I just looked at a clock before I went to bed and when I woke up. I could manually calculate my actual sleep. Here is the background. I have a newborn, so I wanted to see how much sleep I was actually getting. Figured the reviews were good enough, the app wasn’t expensive...it is worth a shot. Well, it was recording 7+ hours of sleep a night. Anyone that has ever had a baby knows you don’t get 7 hours of sleep in the first few weeks. So, I realized it was wrong. Twice in the last two weeks I haven’t even worn my watch at night and the next morning it told me I got 7 hours of sleep one night and 3.5 hours another. When I opened the app, it showed time of restful sleeping and not. I am guessing my watching charger got a good nights rest one night and not another. Clearly, the app doesn’t work correctly. Save your money folks.
Great reports. Annoying notifications.
I love using this app to track my sleep. It has given me some very useful insights to help me sleep better. What I don’t love is the notifications it sends me. For example: Every morning when I wake up, I open the app, log how well rested I feel, and then review its metrics for the night (sleeping heart rate dip, etc.). That’s the only interaction with the app I need. But five or ten minutes later, it pings me with my daily sleep report. But I already know what it’s going to say, because I just looked at it! Then there’s the recommendations the app sends me for improving my sleep. They were very useful at first: I sleep better on days when I exercise. I’d feel more rested if I got 8 hours and 15 minutes of sleep every night. Great. But it just keeps giving me those same recommendations over and over again. I don’t need to see them anymore. And then there are the ongoing inquiries as to why I slept particularly well or poorly the night before. My answers are usually always the same: I exercised the day before. Or I didn’t exercise. The app has already identified this connection between sleep and exercise for me. And it reads my workout data, so it knows how much I exercise. So there’s really no need to keep asking! I know. I can turn off notifications. And I probably will. But the app would be much better (IMO) if these issues were addressed.
Great measures while you sleep.
Before I got my apple watch I owned a pebble watch that had a night mode that I liked. I am happy to report this one is even better. It provides all sorts of useful information. It does need an Internet connection to work. My biggest problem is insuring my battery will last. Before using this app I just charged over night but now I can't do that. My solution is to keep the charger near my chair when watching TV and top off the watch while I don't need it. The watch needs 2 hours to charge completely but I notice the state of the charge and can usually top it off with no problem and still keep the exercise data ok. You do need to verify the times each day and sometimes I have to edit them a bit but overall it works ok.
Worth the download
I downloaded this app originally, not expecting much out of it but , I actually was surprised about how much it tells you and helps you sleep. All you do is wear your watch when you sleep. At first I thought this would be a problem due to battery but my series 3 battery will usually last 2 days and 1 night without a charge but I found out that if you just put your watch on the charger when you’re getting ready it usually brings it up to a full charge in the 30 min it takes to get ready. But the app tells you best things light when you were in a light sleep and when you were in a deeper sleep. Also let’s you know around what time you should be going to bed to get a deeper sleep based on your body’s sleep history.
Best Sleep Tracker Out There
Honestly, I nearly had a panic attack when this app couldn’t open a few months ago. I had to venture through the App Store and find a replacement. I tried to find something that gave me the satisfaction of this app, but they all came short. When Sleep Watch finally fixed the bug, I was so happy! I love how I can check my sleep with just my Apple Watch as long as it’s connected to the Internet. Other tracking apps wouldn’t allow that. I also like the insights, graphics and overall detail of each report. No sleep tracking app has all that and if they do it’s unappealing. I look forward to sleeping well just to get a report now! I highly recommend this to anyone wondering about their sleep cycle.
I never write or submit reviews, but this app doesn’t work. I got this app to give me an idea of actual deep rem sleep, and restlessness, but it gives me inaccurate readings. I know for a fact the time I go to bed and when I start falling asleep as I have a bi-pap machine and put on the mask. That gives accurate sleep time and breathing issues, until I take the mask off when I awake. This app keeps telling me I’m still sleeping when I’m not...example; when I actually might have slept 3 hours, it says I slept 7 hours. I don’t know if it’s counting the time I may be sitting down drinking coffee or reading a book in the morning. One day I wasn’t feeling well, and was not as active as normal, watch tv, read, was on the computer, and when I checked the app, it said I had slept 14 hours. Not good! No help in calculating or deciphering if you are resting or sleeping. I gave it a two, because it provides the heart beat, rhythm, etc. I just hope that’s correct.
Tweak the Sleep
I have been using Sleep Watch for several months now and have been able to find tune my sleep. What I like best about fine-tuning or tweaking my sleep is that I can get more of a deeper and relaxed sleep in a shorter amount of time. This is important in today’s society, given that we do not devote 8 to 9 hours as required. On weekends when I work, I am only afforded the opportunity to be in bed for approximately six hours, so getting the greatest quality of sleep in that amount of time is vital. By measuring my quality of sleep using an Apple Watch, and this app, I have been able to make small adjustments based on scientific recommendations that have improved my restful sleep greatly. As A health and wellness clinician/counselor, I recommend this app to my clients in order to help them make sleep adjustments.
Sleep watch has improved to the place I want it to be. I get all the information I wanted that I got from other non Apple apps in here. The one feature lacking that they fixed was estimation of actual time slept. A while back, about 6 months ago, their app couldn't accurately track my sleep time. If I woke up at 6:00 am then went to bed at 6:30 to 8:00 again, the app missed it. TODAY it captures that to give a very accurate assessment of ALL my sleep. Yeaaa! Also they are updating and adding more features that I didn't have in the non Apple apps. Hats off to Sleep Watch! Today it is a great app and I recommend it if you want to improve your sleep habits or just find out how really crappy your sleep really is.
This app is very well done. The data is laid out in an easy to navigate way and the visualizations are perfect. It used the restedness questionnaire to recommend I get an extra 30 minutes of sleep a night which was really helpful. My one qualm is that I can’t delete old data. When I got the app, it used data from the previous one or two weeks, but I didn’t wear my watch to bed during that time so the data it used is extremely inaccurate. By the time I tried to delete the data, it wouldn’t let me, and customer support confirmed that there’s currently no way to delete data over two weeks old. Great app, but delete the old, bad data as soon as you install it.
