DMFMDJD - Best Health Apps By Far
Autosleep and Healthwatch are simply incredible apps and a must for anyone interested in their health. I am a physician and a bit obsessed with data. I’ve tried a dozen health tracking devices and even more apps and these two, by far, are the most insightful and well designed apps for the iPhone and Apple Watch. I’ve spent hours over the last couple months reviewing the various trends and graphical analytics these apps offer for immediate and long term feedback on my sleep hygiene and heart health. My only wish is that the developer make more apps to track other aspects of health and wellness (SpO2, perfusion index, respiratory rate, and VO2 max as the Apple Watch 6 is rumored to have these features; caloric intake and nutrition; mental health and mindfulness; maybe even goal and habit tracking). These two apps pack so much analysis into a concise and easy to read manner, I wish the other wellness aspects that I track could offer as much insight. While those would require ground-up brand new apps, one thing which could possibly be incorporated into the HeartWatch app would be the ECG data. Even though it’s only one lead, tracking QTc and PR intervals should be doable. Just a thought for future iterations. Anyway, these apps are an incredible deal and offer way more for far less than anything else I’ve found on the App Store. Keep up the good work.
Happy user#1 - HEART WATCH&AUTO SLEEP ROCK!!
THIS SHOULD BE ON THE APPLE WATCH OUT OF THE BOX!!! Both apps are $5 bucks total. NOTHING when you consider the cheapest apple band is $50!! And this offers soooo much versatility for your watch. I literally would have sold this Apple Watch if it were not for these apps! They NEVER CRASH AND NEVER HAVE AN ISSUE!! also the heart watch can ALERT YOU WHEN YOUR HEART RATE IS TOO HIGH OR TOO LOW WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT THE WATCH SHOULD DO!!!
THE AUTO SLEEP TRACKING IS AS GOOD AND AS DETAILED AS FITBIT! For 2 bucks?!!? Come on that's a crazy deal, and the watch still has a full day battery even if you wear it to bed. I use it for voice to text alerts and emails all day at work and tracking a workout in morning with continuous heart rate tracking and still from putting it on at 10pm to track sleep , exercise at 6am, to work till 5 pm the watch still has about 20% left at 7-8pm. And if I charge it after waking from tracking sleep, for just 5 - 10 mins while I get ready in morning, brush and make coffee, it is back to 100%!! Again, Apple should be sooooo grateful that this company made these apps. I love that cardiogram is doing heart health studies with their apps and it's free, so we should all do it for the study, but THESE APPS, heart watch and auto sleep are waayy better cleaner and absolutely worth every cent. They are ESSENTIAL if you have an Apple Watch!
KingFlash - Rather outstanding
I’ve had several activity trackers over the decade. They have had their strengths and weaknesses. Up until now, the Jawbone UP3 was the best for sleep tracking. My Garmin Vivoactive HR was great for activity, but terrible for monitoring sleep. I finally gave in to the Apple Watch series 4, and love it, but am still surprised that they don’t outright offer sleep tracking. I have a varied schedule and work nights, so knowing how behind or on track with sleep is very difficult. I skeptically bought the AutoSleep triad of apps and have been amazed at their accuracy. The auto sleep detect has been right on. And I am impressed with the ability to distinguish deep sleep. I can tell when that is accurate as well... I’ve felt tired after 7 hours of sleep and the app shows I got no deep sleep. Conversely, I’ll make up for it with 6 or 7 hours of sleep and have 3 hours of deep sleep and I feel great. So I know it’s accurate. The breakdown of my averages of sleep and heart rate are very useful as well. It’s not perfect. I’ve taken naps in the late afternoon that it has missed. But overall, the accuracy is stunning.
This is money extremely well-spent. It adds so much value to my Apple Watch for me. I can’t believe Apple has ignored this aspect of its health applications. But AutoSleep is about as good as it gets.
What Happened to Music? - The Best Sleep App Available!
I’m one of those ‘go down the rabbit hole’ people who research everything. I spent a solid chunk of time researching sleep apps and settled on AutoSleep. BY FAR the best app right now! I’ve converted a number of people from Sleep Cycle and other various apps and they all love this one more. The ability to have it automatically determine when you’re sleeping is massive! It makes it VERY user friendly. The only thing I had to adjust to was charging my Apple Watch an hour before bed and then wearing it while I sleep, as I used to let it charge overnight. However, I’m super happy I made this small change because legitimately my sleep hygiene has improved along with my quality. The only hiccup I’ve ran into is to make sure my iPhone is NOT on the bed, as I have the setting turned on for it to think if I’m using the phone then I am awake. I thought this would mean actively using it (phone unlocked and screen on), but apparently it uses the sensors for movement as well. Not a big deal, though it’d be nice to have the option to turn that off (sometimes I fall asleep reading on my phone). 5/5 stars and highly recommend the app! This is coming from a random, unaffiliated user who never writes reviews!
eastxcoast - I want to love this app
This app could be great, but I just feel that it needs some work. I’m not sure why the UI is set up the way it is since it is not user-friendly at all. I would consider myself pretty “tech-savvy” and I have a hard time figuring out this app. The main display is fine, but I still feel it could use an update too. Trying to figure out all of the tabs and what everything inside the app does + how to use it is frustrating when it should be designed to be simple. For whatever reason my data keeps recording that I fall asleep right around 12am every night. This is not always the case, and I don’t touch my phone after I’m in bed, so the only reason why this could be happening could be from a noise app that has a timed shut off. I’m not sure why this would be triggering a phone movement but that’s the only thing that seems to make sense. This would all be fine if I could just edit the time I actually fell asleep, but again, the UI is so frustratingly bad on the edit tab that it seems impossible to do. You can only hit “less” or “more” sleep, but it doesn’t let you control where this is adding or taking away from. So if I add more then it starts counting the time I started working at my desk in the morning (when I was not moving).
I would love to see an updated UI including easier to use controls within the app. I really really want to love this app but there are some things that need updating.
shicaca44811 - Simply the best Sleep App I’ve used
I’ve used quite a few sleep apps over the last year or two and this is by far the best. You have two options - use it with an Apple Watch or without. If you don’t have a watch, the app correlates the data from when you plug your phone in vs unplugging it, but it also takes into effect when your phones screen is on and subtracts it from your total sleep hours! This is the first app I’ve ever seen do this!
When you use it with your watch, if you turn it into “Theater Mode”, it gets really detailed information about your sleep and tells you when you were in different sleep levels, but with Theater mode all night it uses a whopping 2% battery. It still correlates phone screen time into sleep totals, and subtracts that from your sleep, so you get a much more accurate picture of how long and well you’ve slept. The only bad thing is you have to remember to charge the watch before you get to the point of being in bed.
Probably my only gripe is I think metrics for heart correlation could maybe be broken down a bit more (average HR in REM, average in Deep Sleep, etc), but it does give graphs of where your HR attended out over time so that’s nice.
Memphis Willie - Great sleep tracker
This is my third try at sleep tracking apps. This one finally met my expectations. Love the way it uses heart rate declines, stillness, motion, and phone/watch activity to infer if sleeping and overall quality of sleep. Prior apps I tried were easily fooled as long as I was very still. One night I couldn’t sleep and I was sitting quietly reading on my phone and it assumed I had a great nights rest.
This apps “deep sleep” measurement is the key indicator for how I feel the next day.
And, based on other reading, I believe the heart rate dropping throughout the night is a good indication of cortisol levels decreasing. So I monitor my eating/drinking habits to correlate to when I see good drops overall on heart rate throughout the night.
By the way, I saw a comment by a reviewer complaining that you could not manually edit a night’s sleep. It is a little confusing to find the screen but once there you can edit start and stop times for the night’s sleep. They recommend you use tuning factors so it learns and does a better job which I have done. But out of a half year, I have found two or three nights where it mistook when I woke up and I manually adjusted.
Thanks for a great app.
Scdepatr - I check it every day!
There are few apps that I use every single day, but this is definitely one of them. Sleep is so important to the body and I really like seeing how I’m doing in that area. Checking my deep sleep, my total sleep, my heart rate and all of the other valuable information in this app is some thing I do each morning after I get up. On a few occasions I have gone to bed without my watch I really miss getting that level of detail about my sleep session.
There is one thing I would love to see added to the app and that is a cat nap or a power nap feature. Maybe that would be added to auto awake and not auto sleep ... I’m not sure. I used to use a Jawbone before I got my Apple Watch and I loved that I had a power nap feature where I could push a button saying that I was going to lay down and go to sleep and then it would know when I fell asleep and wake me up 20 minutes later or 30 minutes later or whatever was in my settings. I miss being able to have some thing to track how long I’ve been asleep and then wake me up in a certain amount of time. If one of these two apps could do that ...it would be the perfect addition!
HenryGz - Love this app!
This app changed my life and the way I think about sleep and how the decisions I made throughout my day affects the quality of my sleep. Everyone knows going to bed early and getting a good nights sleep is good for you, but how do you get there? This app and my Apple Watch helped me figure out the way. With this app I discovered that my minimum amount of sleep needed is 6.5hr, target is 7hrs and anything above this is a bonus. With this app I discovered that I really should not have any alcohol 3-4hrs before going to bed otherwise my body wastes more energy processing the alcohol through my system than helping my body recover while I sleep and I don’t wake up feeling rested. This app helped me discover that I have food allergies I was not aware of, by monitoring my heart rate after a late night snack I could see via HR charts which snacks helped or impeded my sleep cycle. Every morning I wake up and look at the total amount of sleep and deep sleep I just completed and if it’s not at my minimum amount than I continue to sleep a bit more if possible so I have a productive day. To the developer thank you and continue all the great work and please continue improving this app!
Can't use my nickname - Better than the fitbit
I’ve had a fitbit for YEARS! And finally switched over to the Apple Watch. For the past few months I have been debating just switching back to my fitbit because I am so heavily reliant on my sleep data. I downloaded a few other Apple Watch sleep apps and tried them out. I was so disappointed in the amount of data, ease of tracking, validity of the sleep data, and so much more. I really thought it was just the watch’s incapability. I mentioned this to a friend who recommended this app. It truly changed my mind completely about the Apple Watch. It seriously prevented me from giving up on the watch altogether. Auto sleep has the best, most detailed and accurate data (more and better than the fitbit). Well worth the extra 2 dollars out of my pocket. While I agree with another reviewer that this should already be on the watch itself to be a competitor with fitbit, for the extra $2 I don’t mind. The other Apple Watch sleep apps I tried were free with membership upgrades. I trialed the upgrades and was still so disappointed. Pay the few dollars to own this and you won’t be disappointed at all!!
Atavachron - Another great input into Apple Health
Great app! I’ve been using this ever since I heard Federico Viticci talking about this on the Connected podcast. I’m using this along with a Bluetooth blood pressure cuff (Omron 10 series) and a Bluetooth scale to get a detailed baseline of basic health indicators, and track it to see if there are any subtle changes I should take action on. (I also track everything I eat and drink using LoseIt!).
AutoSleep, along with the Apple bedtime reminder is doing a lot to keep me on track to getting more regular sleep. (I also try to manually correlate the foods I eat and my overall hydration with better sleep. I tend to get heartburn that bothers me when I lie down. Watching what, when and how much I eat helps with this. ). The Workout app on my Apple Watch also motivates me to get more exercise which also helps me sleep better.
I heard that people who regularly get less than 6 hours of sleep are at significantly greater risk of heart attacks. So I eat better and exercise more to sleep better and hopefully it will all synergistically help me enjoy watching my daughter grow up at least through middle age.
teddiegator - Informative
I’ve been using this app for about six months. It’s informative in the sense that you can see from the data, particularly the graph, how your sleeping changes during the night. Before I got the app, I was trying to sleep eight hours a night and I was happy, because that was how long I was supposed to sleep. The graph showed that I went in and out of light sleep and deep sleep sometimes four to six times a night. I started to try to set aside eight and one-half hours a night. I am not sleeping much better but there’s been some modest improvement if I go to bed earlier. Otherwise the next day am reproved by messages from the app and encouraged to go to bed at an unrealistic time. There are a few odd problems. The app sometimes decides that I have woken a half-hour or more before I think I’ve woken up. Occasionally the app will decide that I’m sleeping when I’m actually playing a game on my phone or browsing social media. Nevertheless, the app errs on the side of finding that I’m awake. There is also a psychosomatic effect from looking at the app. When I look at the graph I find myself disappointed with my sleep and the lack of rest that I’ve gotten. Overall I am glad that I got this app but it’s a mixed blessing.
Evilkow - Best Sleep Tracking App Out There
I have tried them all, and this app is the best *by far*. The best part about it is you only need to remember to wear your Apple Watch. A quick 15-20 minute recharge once or twice a day keeps me going all night. The app does the rest. No more hiding my phone under a pillow or forgetting to turn on the sleep tracking app (only for them to crash). This app doesn't run all night long. Instead it uses the brilliant approach of analyzing the data already collected on the iPhone and Apple Watch. It takes that data and draws logical conclusions about when you were asleep. I don't write reviews very often, and I don't write them unless I've been using the app for a while. I have been suing this one for about 10 months now, and it does a great job at determining my sleep time. To make matters even better, the deveeloper is constantly updating the app to make it better. I think there were two full version updates in 2016, and now there is another full version update with a cleaner interface. Super nice. If you want to track your sleep, this is the app for the job.
Fruge1927 - Disappointed
No app should be this difficult to use. It would either not record my sleep at all or record some of it and then disappear. I contacted customer service. Customer service is good. Spent 4-5 days trying to get this to work. I still have an iPhone 6s so there was a know glitch with it and the app. Because of what I assume is a time difference they only answered me emails at around 10pm each night. Finally we were able to get it to track and save my sleep. I used it for another week or so however what it records is inaccurate even with adjusting it. AutoSleep routinely tells me I am only sleeping 1-6 hours with 0-23 minutes deep sleep even when I know I have had deep sleep and have had dreams. AutoSleep also shows me awake when I know I was sleeping.
I wear both my Apple Watch and my Withings. My Withings is more accurate consistently shows when in deep sleep, when I have awaken during the night. I bought the AutoSleep app because I thought tracking my heart rate and quality sleep would be beneficial. Just wearing my Apple Watch to bed does that for me. I really wanted to like this app and thought it would be the only app I would need to use. Unfortunately that has proven not to be the case.
HotMommasCowboy - Always Improving!!
Before I received my CPAP, I would wake up as if I barely got any sleep...even after an 8hr night! AutoSleep always showed my sleep as being sporadic and crazy and I always thought it wasn’t working properly. I even contacted their customer service. They had me make some changes, but it still didn’t help. But, their customer service was constantly trying to help me. So they definitely have a top notch customer service!! After my sleep study, I found out I had a severe case of sleep apnea. After going on the CPAP, their program started showing favorable sleep patterns. So, it was working all along, it’s just my apnea was that severe that the app recorded as best it could. I was having an issue where it wouldn’t record short naps and it wasn’t recording when I truly got up in the morning, but they’ve got settings for that as well!! Now all my sleep is captured, even the quick 10-15 naps I have sometimes. This app is 100% worth the money. Don’t hesitate to give it a shot. And, if it’s as sporadic as mine was in the beginning, it’s possible you could have sleep apnea.
Dr4co1 - Couldn’t ask for more
This app is absolutely a game changer. Back before I started using the app I would always wake up tired or get to work wishing I could just sleep for another hour even after thinking I got plenty of sleep and didn’t know why I was still so tired. I tried changing my diet and exercised more regularly but still wasn’t seeing any drastic results! I decided to finally buy the app after doing extensive research on different apps and it was the best thing I could have done. It’s super detailed and kinda coaches you on changing your sleep behaviors and within a week....A WEEK.....I was finally getting the results I was looking for. I feel more focused and ready to get to work to crush another day and my overall attitude gained some improvements as well! Ever since then I’ve been using the app and whenever I feel tired or something is changing I look over at the app and can see exactly what is going on and continue to help improve my sleeping habits. Love this app and recommend to anyone looking to step up their sleeping game!
T-2018 - Fantastic App
I’ve used this app continuously the last ten months with an Apple Series 3 watch and and have been very impressed by how well it works. It’s quite accurate in tracking sleep. Oftentimes it will even catch an afternoon nap. The charts are stellar too and provide a nice way to review the previous night’s sleep, and the calendar history is well laid out and allows one to quickly review sleep history over the previous month(s). Occasionally the app will think I’ve fallen asleep late at night if I’m watching TV and barely moving, but the editing capabilities for the previous night’s sleep is first rate and you can quickly make adjustments. It also has a sensitivity setting that you can adjust to take into account how much you naturally move at night so it will track sleep more accurately. Finally the watch and phone work in tandem and so, for example, if you move your phone, it can automatically register that as being awake. Overall, I think this app has been my favorite health app I’ve purchased for my watch and phone.
FFfFFFffffffffff1133566 - Congested, non-intuitive interface
Downloaded the app as a first time Apple Watch owner. I previously used a FitBit Charge 2 for sleep tracking, which had little to no setup or calibration and seemed to be fairly accurate for a wrist wearable. For me, this app has required multiple calibrations, and I find the data it produces difficult to interpret and the menus difficult to find and revisit. The “Readiness” rating seems to be the most arbitrary of all the data the app produces. I gave it two weeks before rating but things haven’t really improved. I’m going to keep plugging away, hoping that it becomes more useful for me.
UPDATE: Still experiencing issues with data accuracy. The application has a Sleep/Wake Consistency feature that will track your sleep and wake times, however you cannot set your sleep time past 12am midnight. For someone who goes to bed at 2am, this feature is rendered completely useless because of a software limitation. One positive I will point out is their email support team is pretty responsive; I’ve reached out twice with issues and gotten responses fairly quickly. That being said, I’ll be exploring other sleep tracking applications while waiting for Apple to release theirs for watchOS.
JS390 - Worth every penny
I’ve never actually reviewed a product but decided to do my first for this one. It is worth every single penny. I have a series 4 Apple watch and I was looking at all the different trackers, trying to find which one was the best. I looked at the popular ones like Sleep++ and Pillow, and I tried others ones too. But the experience was never the best and didn’t have some of the premium features of the other paid apps. Those ones, however, cost a fortune and I didn’t want to pay that much money. Instead, I bought this app for the low, onetime price of 3 dollars. It might seem like I’m being paid to say this, but the app works perfectly. It gives me all the premium features like sleep analysis, heart rate, readiness, bedtime, and it barely takes any percentage off my watch when I sleep. You get a ton of information from the online app and the UI is pretty good. I would recommend this because it’s so cheap compared to other premium plans, yet it offers the most out of all of them.
Netlawyer - Works great when wearing watch.
Can only recommend when wearing your apple watch. There is another mode, but you still need to trigger sensors in your phone the right way for that to work and it doesn't fit the way I use my phone (i.e. I'll put it on charge early in the evening and not pick it up again until the next day) so I'll regularly get a report that I slept 14 hours or something if I sleep without my watch. So depending on how you use your phone, ymmv.
Four stars for missing one basic feature - it appears you can't edit sleep or delete data more than a week earlier. I went on a trip, still had the phone tracking turned on, barely wore my watch and now I have 5 days in the middle of May with bad data which is throwing off my averages. I can't find any way to deleted data from three weeks ago. I don't look at the app every day or even every week so being able to access and edit data from all dates would make this 5 stars for the watch tracking mode. (Again the phone tracking mode doesn't work for me, but I don't count that against the app.)
Motogoder - Mental health
Like most of us I suffer from irritability, restlessness and disconnection with the world. Not all the time although unless kept track of I can be a real pain in the a**. Through years of hard work I’ve found the most important medication a person can give themselves is sleep. I have three kids and work a high power/ high stress job. I’ve been able to use this app to literally keep myself in check. I check it everyday and use it as a tool to be a better worker, father and husband. I’ve had it for years and currently, with my newborn being crib trained, I use this app to keep me honest with how good of a job I’m doing. How well I’m getting back to sleep and managing my own life while trying to be the best father for her. My main point being this isn’t just something cool to look at. It’s a practical tool to help better your life and the lives of the people you interact with on an everyday basis. Get it, use it correctly and be better person. We’re a world lacking better people.
Dude0u812 - Really great, use in conjunction with Pillow
I’ve been using Pillow for years, recently decided to give Autosleep another look. After a few days with Autosleep I’ve made it my main program. Whereas Pillow is very simple and easier to understand, Autosleep is more extensive and beautiful, though I’m starting to get familiar with all the new data it includes and how to read it. I much prefer the Autosleep graphics, though sometimes the “dumbed down” simplicity of Pillow is welcomed. Autosleep has HRV and attention on a number of other important data points that make me wish I’d purchased it years ago.
A couple improvements would really help improve Autosleep. 1) an optional “dumbed down” view, like a dashboard that just gives me the highlights with bold and simple graphics. 2) NOTES CHECKLIST so I can track what went into the sleep- did I take sleeping pill, Ayervedic herbs, indica cannibus, caffeine later in the day, get a massage, consume alcohol (and how much), etc. And, compile them and present me with trends.
For $8 bucks I’ve purchased the package and it was definitely money well spent.
d104638 - Scary accurate and detailed
It's a very seamless app that is surprisingly accurate when you use the Apple Watch. I have used it several times during sleep studies over the last 18 months and the details correlate every time. After 18 months of use I have a really good idea of what the metrics need to be for me to feel my best. It's even made it easier to manage my physical and emotional stress during the days by being able to track my heart rate variability and see trends that develop after interventions I have made. I have very bad insomnia so I probably dive deeper into the science behind this app which is critical for me but probably not for most people but it's nice to have that data. If that's not you then their main view makes it pretty cave man simple to understand and learn from. The only complaint I have about it is that it doesn't show pulse oximetry yet so I have to bounce back and forth with the sleep app and the health app but I hope there's an update in the works for that.
jaytothe^2 - Calibration gone haywire
I’m a college student and a night owl. I’ve never had the best sleep habits however this app last October-February really did a great job at tracking and helping me be mindful of my unhealthier sleeping habits. These last two months for whatever reason have begged the question what happened? I’m constantly receiving an hour or two of sleep when I’m wide awake and active. I have to calibrate it to track the minimum level of sleep just to, partially, avoid this. And then when I do get an actual good nights rest the watch reports I had awoke for an hour here or there. When I’m asleep, I’m asleep. I do not wake up momentarily, either I’m awake or I’m asleep not this strange stream of broken information. This app did receive a 5/5 from me, now I’m wondering what I payed for and even why I have it installed. I’ve fine tuned every setting imaginable and the difference is debatable at best. Also, I still don’t understand the AutoWake function. If it does attempt to wake me, it’s not trying very hard. I’ve almost never seen it go off in its own though to begin with. I payed for this app so expect it to outperform the free ones available on the market. It no longer does.
Deviant89 - Very good
This is genius and going to change/save my life.
This App was not really great for me in the past, but now that it’s a lot better and has the AutoSleep app I have totally feel different
I got AirPod pros right before and what I do is put them in, play the appropriate setting in Endel app and then set my alarm. I have a back up just in case it fails to arouse me, haven’t needed it yet though.
This app is changing my life already. I have type 1 bipolar, severe anxiety, ADD, and depression is a cloud or blanket I’ve lived with holding me down and ruining me since I turned age 9 two decades ago...
I am also now “obese” but it just seems like I have a beer belly haha. It’s not really bad, but since I got on certain meds it totally made my body head that way.
I have always had advice from different professionals that I need to change my diet, replace bad habits with good habits, and most of all get a good night sleep. Sleep has a tremendous affect on health. My stress level has been too high lately - I feel better the past few days than I have in months. All thanks to my new Apple Watch and AutoSleep and AutoWakez
I can do that now and I already feel my mind is more focused, I don’t feel groggy, my anxiety lessened, I am in a much better mood,
I am able to cut my procrastination down and it’s not a struggle to get out of bed, start my day. This literally has changed my most important part of the day so that I start on a much better mood and attitude. Thank you!
DersonB - Great App
Works great and provides lots of useful info. The one challenge is that you need to wear your watch at night which is a common time to charge it. This means you need to make a new habit of charging it once after you get up in the morning so it’ll last through the day and a second time in the evening so it doesn’t run out of charge while it’s doing its sleep monitoring thing. The other annoyance is that when I take my watch off to charge it loses sync with the app so I’ve found myself pretty regularly fiddling with my watch trying to get sync re-established right when I should be trying to go to sleep. The app says it needs something like 5% of a sleep cycle (24 minutes?) to establish itself in communication with the phone so that means you need to make sure you’re done charging your watch and put it back on your wrist at least 24 minutes prior to going to sleep. There have been times when it just won’t connect and I‘be given up.
When it works it’s fantastic, when it’s finicky it’s frustrating.
Patti S - A little addicting.
If you are getting an app because you are one of those achievers who want to “close all your rings” everyday, this one definitely fills the bill. I am a bit obsessed with checking how much “deep sleep” I had every night and I will force myself to get to bed at a decent time because I want my total sleep ring to be green or blue. It definitely encourages good sleep habits because it tracks how close your actual bedtime and waking times are to your ideals. I use the “Breathe” app to gauge my waking pulse and heart rate variability but my “Readiness” rating is never very great. I also found using that app to indicate when I wake and “Lights Out” on this app to indicate when I am going to sleep, results in more accurate total sleep calculations. Before it seemed to count the time I was charging my phone as a nap. Lastly, because you likely don’t want to be running out of power during the night, I found if I put my phone in Theater mode the battery drains much less.
jujubeebop - The best sleep app!
I tried most of the apps in the store, and this was the one for me. I credit AutoSleep with improving my sleep habits and getting more and higher quality sleep. As an insomniac, that’s saying a lot. Biofeedback is good stuff, and they deliver it with top notch visuals, charts and graphs (honoring Apple’s circle ⭕️ model), and the level of data they provide is chock full of helpful information... and you can get as geeky as you want with it. The data has also encouraged me to get more exercise as I notice how the efficiency of my sleep is better when I do. And I love that the cost for the app is a flat fee and not some ridiculous subscription. That’s how it should be. It pairs beautifully with HeartWatch (another excellent app by Tantissa), which I hesitated to get at first until I realized how much I loved AutoSleep and wanted to have that same ability to drill down into my cardiac data. Lastly, their documentation is some of the best I’ve seen in the app store. Bravo all around! 👏🏼
Sweetpea9016 - All-encompassing and accurate!
I was skeptical that a third party app would work well, and skeptical about sleep tracking in general. I bought my first smart watch (Apple), and gave this a try based on the reviews. Even the negative reviews were about trivial things not related to how this product performs. The sleep and wake times in this app are pretty spot on, and it has many metrics with lots of data (restlessness, deep sleep, awake, heart rate). There are even different profiles for different types of users (like athletes/normal people/standard high heart rate). My only complaint is that I’d like to know how it calculates some of this to be able to make changes to my sleep pattern to get the most benefit. For example, are “restless” moments any time I move my wrist, or true tossing and turning? What constitutes “deep sleep”? I almost returned my Apple Watch when I found out it didn’t have built in sleep monitoring, but this inexpensive app has saved the day for the Apple Watch. I’m impressed.
josepheh - Self-accountability for sleep habits
AutoSleep has made me take a long look in the mirror about my sleep habits. Because of family stress and school I have been chronically short on sleep for years. The patterns have become ingrained, and I’ve had a hard time changing them. I’ve partly been in denial about just how bad my sleep has been, but AutoSleep shows me in stark detail how I’m shorting myself night after night after night. It’s scary and sobering. On the positive side, I can clearly see how my best days are preceded by a good night’s sleep. It’s motivating me to really work on changing my sleep habits.
This wouldn’t be possible if I couldn’t rely on the software to give me credible data. After the first few days of tweaking the readings (an easy process), I now get sleep records I trust, whether the sleep was good or bad.
I’ve had an unexpected challenge using the app that has little to do with the app itself. Because of my daytime routine, it was easiest to charge my watch and phone while I slept. Going to bed wearing a sufficiently charged watch is sometimes challenging, and I find myself wanting to stay up too late so I can charge it to see how well I sleep. Silly of me. I wonder if the app could have an optional reminder of “time to charge your watch!” a couple hours before expected bedtime.
AutoSleep has been a game-changer for me. I recommend it for anyone wanting to get a handle on their sleep habits and hygiene.
senthilrameshjv - Best and provides more info and sleep , few things to improve
This is the first app that I’ve purchased once I bought the Apple Watch. Sleep tracking is very important for me. The app provides lot of information and also way to read and learn more about it.
I try to keep up 7+ hours sleep and try to close all the rings now. Well done on the app and also along with heart watch I’m able to take care of my sedentary, workout and sleep heart rates.
Sometimes I wish the sleep detection and awake be more accurate. All of the calibration that you provide isn’t matching my manual rememberance of when I slept. That’s something I can live with but you can improve.
What I wanted to know and possibly you to fix is, there are two occasions my Apple Watch had a trouble and locked itself. In this case next day there is no data. I read through your articles on what to do in these cases and it seems the only thing I can do is remove them from averages.
Even though I do that it causes me to have debit in sleep bank and I’m behind in my sleep requirement. Is there a way I can add a length of period I slept even though it’ll not have classification on type of sleep and heart rates but just the duration. This will help me. If I go to day/edit tab and try to highlight all the right balls I don’t get them set as the sleep period. Can you introduce an option to add the duration of length of sleep when the watch goes bizarre or let me know how to do in current update?
adnamam - LOVE THIS APP!
This gives me everything I need to know and offers a lot more too which is really nice. I have it sent to automatically calculate when I was asleep instead of me letting it know everytime I’m falling asleep and waking up. But one thing I don’t like is how sometimes if the time I was asleep are wrong, I can’t just edit the time fallen asleep or time I woke up. I‘ve been staying home and studying so much/not moving that it thought I was asleep for like 28 hours at one point but when I went in to change it, it was kind of confusing and not intuitive. I understand the whole point is so it can learn how to detect your sleep better but sometimes I wish I could just simply edit the time fallen asleep and time woke up and from the home page rather then double clicking the rings and trying to find out where to even change it. Other then that this app is perfect and super helpful and typically very accurate! :)
Shawa13 - Great sleep tracking — simple daily use
This is an app for people who want data on how well they sleep. Once you customize it the way you want it, it just works. It is accurate in capturing my awake periods in the middle of the night.
I have used several sleep tracking devices and apps. This is by far the best. I’ve been using AutoSleep for two years. The history has been helpful when I talk with my pulmonologist. My biggest problem is remembering to put my watch back on from the charger before I go to sleep, and now they have a feature to remind me (except I can’t get it to work right).
I only use the data on the Clock tab, which works really well for me. I know there is deeper data that I can customize and access, but it’s more than I need.
I have an older Apple Watch and it works well.
My only criticism is that the user interface is not designed for lay people. It is difficult to configure, but it does what I need by default. I can see there is more data that I could find to be useful, but I give up quickly because the interface is confusing. I followed the instructions to set the alarm to remind me to put my watch on, but it doesn’t work and I don’t know where to start troubleshooting. The app could use a consult from a usability/accessibility team.
It is remarkably accurate capturing my sleep/awake times — better than any other sleep tracker I have used.
idgit - Essential Health Tool
As humans our health is dependent upon many factors, but none more crucial than sleep. Deep sleep is the time your body uses to do deep repairs of cells it cannot do at other times. If you use this app with Apple Watch for a couple months you’ll see just how much sleep you’re really getting. Light, deep, restless or interrupted you can see it in data and take action.
No data is ever 100% accurate, but more critical than accuracy for measurement is consistency. Autosleep has given me the data I needed to understand or confirm: a) I wasn’t going to bed early enough to ever get a solid 7 hours of sleep, b) cutting out afternoon/evening caffeine really DOES improve sleep, c) spending 15-30 minutes outdoors once or twice a day really DOES improve sleep & d) adjustment my split dose medication times to earlier in the day helps improve my sleep.
Take care of you and monitor your sleep every night. If you actually look at the data, you’ll start begin learning the keys to your own body’s sleep needs. More importantly you will see, right there in YOUR data what helps YOU sleep better.
After a couple years now, I could not be happier with Autosleep. Frequent improvements, prompt fixes & most importantly it works. I’ve learned a lot about managing caffeine and my activity levels to get better sleep thanks to this app. Why: Data, data, data. If you can measure it you can improve it!
SteveOFresno - Perfect!
To be honest, I had fairly low hopes that this app would work well for me. I'm a night shift worker with horrendous sleep habits and I just didn't expect that it would keep up with me. I too often go 24 hours without sleep, sleep for 12 hours at a time, or lie in bed for hours trying to fall asleep.
This app hasn't missed the mark once. I ran the setup wizard on day one and set the app to interpret phone motion as me being awake. I wear my watch to bed and leave my phone charging on my night stand. This combination hasn't messed up once. Every sleep, every nap, every hour lying awake, all counted correctly. The data is presented in various interesting and useful ways. I knew my sleep habits were horrible, but there is just something about seeing them displayed graphically that makes me more inspired to actually fix them.
As if that wasn't enough, I contacted support for what I thought was a glitch, and I received an email the same day that solved the problem on the first try. I had accidentally excluded one day's data from the history, so there was no problem with the app in the first place.
My only concern with wearing my watch to bed was battery life, since I also want to wear it while awake. This hasn't been an issue. It charges so quickly that it has been enough to simply charge it here and there when I'm in the shower, eating, etc.
Fantastic app and fantastic support.
HMA - Knowing what’s happening while you sleep
This app is easy to set up and the data you get is worth you money. The unique inside information gained, allows you to understand your sleep pattern and your actual needs to adjust your day and what to expect daily your body to do with the energy gain or loss during sleep. It’s a good metric measuring combination with your Apple I-watch adding previously unmeasured areas without obstruction during the night. I have sleep apnea for several years and never had the opportunity to measure data of me. Most apps only give data on the machinery used to sleep and how they are functioning. This app with the watch is getting data from my body directly. Furthermore, a year ago; I had a stroke. This app’s data allow me to have information to adjust my workout daily. The final result is maximizing and adjusting my workout to get better results faster and consistently.
SemperFi1/5 - Has some problems
I’ve changed my opinion. First, I found out from one of the Doctors at the Dept. of Veteran’s Affaires Medical Clinics that the Apple Watch band that comes with it is horrible, and they do not recommend that you sleep with an Apple Watch. Once I stopped wearing the Apple Watch to bed I got back to getting at least getting six hours sleep again. I also put some time into calibrating the app and that helped a lot. To bad I can’t sleep with the watch. Apple needs to use a watch band that breaths, if the doctors at the VA say it’s bad then Apple has to know there are issues, fix them!
I’ve had AutoSleep for a week now and so far it’s not even in the ballpark. Right now I’m having a lot of trouble sleeping. The last time slept this bad I was on active duty in the Marine Corps and people where trying to kill me. The other day I had a really bad nights sleep, I woke up the next morning and I was to tiered to drive, I haven’t slept that bad in decades. AutoSleep gave me a 97% sleep rating.
lmproving Sleeper - Auto sleep is terrific
I’ve been using Health watch and Auto sleep with my series 4 Apple Watch over the last month. I find both sets of data to be extremely helpful in tracking activities of various sorts and sleep patterns. The information is very visually clear and you can also get into greater depth to understand more specifically what is going on behind each set of daily information.
Of course looking ones daily functioning provides some guidance on one’s behavior but more importantly are the beautiful displays that illustrate patterns of activity, vitals, and sleep patterns over time. Through HealthWatch you can send an email to secure answers. I received an immediate response on commonly asked questions and that was sufficient to address my need for improving my interactions with the health watch and also auto sleep I really value having HealthWatch and auto sleep to guide my behavior over time. Rusty
Sirronalot - Great App
I have tried almost all the sleep apps on the App store. There are no other apps that compare. I purchased the bundle which includes AutoSleep, AutoWake and Heart Watch. All the data pulled from the three formulates scores in different sleep categories. which are goal oriented. I use an Apple watch and have learned to sleep with it on to get the most accurate results. The app is a little challenging at first because there are so many places that need user input at the beginning, this all goes once your up and running. Im a data person and there is endless amounts. The app connects to IOS health app and swaps information to come up with most accurate sleep data possible based on all your health apps.. I have emailed support within the app and they are very knowledgable and responsive. I actually recommend this app to friends and family on a daily basis. I highly recommend this app.
RoBearto1 - Remarkable piece of work
Not many apps are in the “astonishing” category but I’d mark this as one of the few. More than an app, it reveals an entire world of information on what exactly is happening after we turn out the lights. The sheer level of programming and medical expertise that went into this sleep app in harnessing and exploiting the diagnostic capabilities of the Apple Watch and iPhone renders it effective, but this combined with the infographics - the attention given by the developers to making the displays intuitive and supremely informative simply astonish. The text explanations are among the most clear and literate I’ve ever read An absolutely first class piece of work. It’s easy to get the hang of it and if you follow a few simple instructions you’ll be amazed at not only what it tells you about your night, but how you can actually improve your sleep results. An virtuoso accomplishment. Kudos.
grandmafish - Very useful app! Gives you lots of information on your sleep patterns.
Bought this app based on its good reviews here in the App Store. It's proved to be very helpful in identifying my sleep patterns and also pretty accurate. For example, yesterday morning I woke up feeling tired and pretty crappy even though I got my goal of 8 hours sleep. I dug deeper into the dashboard and it shows that I got virtually no deep sleep that night. I wake up multiple times a night, but on the night it does show me getting deep sleep, I remember waking up feeling particularly refreshed and not tired. So it's accurately verified sleep problems I knew I had. But the app won't fix it or tell me what's causing it, of course. For that I'm going to have to get the help of a sleep specialist. There's a lot of information on the dashboard if you know where to look and poke around a bit. It also coordinates with the developers heart app and Apple's health app.
Sage74 - Absolutely the best tracker there is, especially if you use an Apple Watch
I have serious sleep problems due to brain damage. So it’s important that I have an accurate tracker to show my trends, heart rates, deep sleeps vs wakefulness. I can tell when I’m about to have a brain episode based on several days of tracking information.
I had a friend who was using a different tracker. She had issues with it kissing entire sections of time. She also has an Apple Watch, so it shouldn’t be losing chunks of data. Took me weeks to convince her to try this app. She tried the feee version for a week and the. Bought the paid version. Works perfectly.
I like that you can fine tune every piece of data this app uses. People are all unique, and this app allows you to alter the way it translates data to fit your particular traits. Give the feee version a try, you will end up buying the paid version.
brmacman - Best Sleep and Wake Apps I’ve tried
The deep sleep tracking is incredibly valuable as are the integrations with HeartWatch and AutoWake. There are several pre-canned calibrations to get the sleep metrics more accurate for yourself; it’s really simple. I use the AutoWake function every night which can be set to wake you in light sleep just before your target awakening time. Reminders can be set to remind you to go to bed based on your target awake time and sleep goals.
If you are focused on sleep hygiene and generally improving your sleep quality; these apps provide simple, straightforward metrics and recent trends that support your efforts to improve sleep. The dials are simple: total sleep, sleep quality, deep sleep. Deep sleep is what I’ve been watching closely and I find it tracks how focused and energetic I feel the next day.
This is better than Sleep+ or Pillow. I’ve not found another app that compares.
Cyberdyn - It’s awesome. Buy it!!!
I always feel like I’m a fake reviewer when I write reviews because it takes a *lot* for me to write a review. I have been using this app for about a year and I am fascinated by it.... its incredibly insightful to see how I slept. I’m currently struggling with my mattress (memory foam, too soft, too firm, etc)... first world problems but the insight from how poorly I slept on a certain night with a certain mattress gives me validation that I would otherwise have to speculate about... “hmm, I didn’t sleep too well last night”. :: versus: examine watch data and I see I got *zero* deep sleep... and I am able to look back and see in the past I got 2 hr 30 mins of deep sleep (for example...).
This app is incredible.... and very solid software... I have to compliment the author: it has never crashed, never “oops, sorry, didn’t collect data”.... never ever fails. *Amazing* app.
Buy it! Now!! Hehehe
Jar el - Best Sleep App (still)
You get a lot of data with this app. The breakdown from when your in deep sleep is enlightening as I didn’t know that it was so intermittent during the sleep period. The app also gives you the freedom to customize your sleep behavior patterns by observing when and how you sleep to improve your pattern. I find that I sleep better if I go to bed earlier and I feel more relaxed the next day. This app has been accurate and even for my afternoon naps. It shows that I even have deep sleep during a nap. That was a surprise as the TV is usually on and other noises are present. This app works as if it was native to iOS. It doesn’t have hiccups or dropouts. It works seamlessly. It is now the only app I use for sleep tracking! With the upcoming iOS 14 sleep monitoring, I will still be using this app for the tracking of my sleep because I think it gives accurate information.
Cantamos y Bailamos Mas - Very impressed - better than I expected
I didn’t know what to really expect when buying these apps. I saw the colorful dials and the health related data points and thought it’d be nice to get some basic info. I had no idea the level of depth and detail I would be able to get from these guys. I am truly impressed...and for the record, I am not someone very easily impressed. To the clinical staff and software developers of these apps, you’ve done an AMAZINGLY AWESOME job on your apps. I’m so impressed with the quality and stability of your apps that I’m wondering how you are so successful and whether or not you’d be available to work on other projects. 🤔😳😁😇
Please keep up the great work and whatever you do, please DO NOT let any of the bugs from other Apple software releases 🤬🤯😳 affect the quality of your product and stability of your performance. Keep up the excellent work!!!
Twinkly Toez - So far I luv it! One Day only
So-I just got my first Apple Watch and I really wanted to track health and quality-of-life on it. That being said I downloaded two other sleep apps for free. In an effort to track the quality and hours asleep at night.
I couldn’t figure out how to access all the data and they were very confusing! so I put up the 2.99 to download this app and I am so happy I did!
You basically don’t have to do anything-but go to bed- and the data and display are very easy to figure out very similar to what’s on your Apple Watch. Rings, that explain in a very understandable way your sleep data.
I plan on wearing my watch to bed each night to get the most accurate data but you don’t have to do that- they can track it off your iPhone. it’s only been one day but so far I am absolutely thrilled with the data I got after one night sleep! Definitely worth $3.00
GLBorchert - Best Sleep App
I have been using AutoSleep for a couple of years now, and believe it’s one of the better health tools out there. I especially love that it contains so much in-depth information, and easily accessible graphic historical sleep and health values. It works best in conjunction with the sister HeartWatch app, which allows someone who is extremely health conscious to dig deeper into the details. Perhaps some users want an app to summarize everything for them. AutoSleep and HeartWatch do that, but also allow you to view the actual data. I don’t just want my “average” heart rate, I want to see all of the readings used to calculate that average. I want the details, and these apps make them available.
I like that AutoSleep uses HRV as well, in I think the most understandable format.
Another big plus is support. I have more than once contacted support, and have received a prompt and informed response.
Wendyannh - Accuracy & Depth
At first I really hated this app because I could not for the life of me figure it out, and really, really missed my Fitbit. Over time, however, I have managed to decipher much of it, if not most, and can see how accurately it actually tracks my sleep. It gives you multiple ways of looking at the data - and to adjust the amount of sleep you’ve gotten if necessary in a way that actually trains the app. Just having a record of how long I’ve slept - and particularly what hours - is invaluable to me.
I can’t rate the app 5 stars, however, because it is simply not very intuitive, plus it does not show standard sleep levels like REM, non-REM, and light sleep, which I really need to know. It also doesn’t show what’s normal for one’s age and how your own sleep stacks up against that the way the Fitbit app does, which I also found very valuable. The graphs for sleep quality are absolutely indecipherable and thus useless.
1 mad shredda yea - Please add a way to manually input your the time you’re asleep!!!
This app is good, but there’s some obvious things that it’s missing!!! Before I had an Apple Watch I had a Fitbit and it tracked my sleep really well, and i liked it a lot!! The most annoying thing about this app is that you can’t manually add time you slept! for example: I’m in college and my major is pretty rigorous, so I don’t get too much sleep, and so I like the feature on the app that shows your sleep debt. BUT for instance, last night i was really tired and so I accidentally fell asleep from 9:30pm-11:30 and then woke up, had to do an assignment, and went back to sleep from 3-8am that’s a cumulative of 7 hours, which is pretty good for me, and would help my sleep debt percentage on the app, but the app only recognizes the sleep from 9:30-11:30, and I can’t do anything about this except exclude the day from my data. It happens all the time and it really annoys me that we can’t do something so fundamental and basic!!! PLEASE FIX THIS!!

Tiny Tot Central - Well informed
My daughter mentioned that she had been tracking her sleep patterns and how she can now understand why she is feeling tired and restless. I searched the App Store for a similar programme - she doesn’t have an apple phone so was using a different app. I read all of the reviews and decided to try this app. Although a little sceptical at first I now love the app. as I can now track my actual sleep and my deep sleep and when there is a dip in the results I can look back on the week to see where this is happening. It has been a journey of discovery and now I understand more about my internal body clock. My husband goes to bed at least an hour to 1.5 hours earlier than me, I did try doing this but I found it very difficult to maintain good quality sleep and would often wake around 1am and then have to get up and do something for st least and hour as my brain was too active😊 I now can go to bed early but then I read until around 10pm and my body sync has returned to normal with my internal body clock.
PixelBoo - Best Sleep Tracking App
When I first purchased my Apple Watch I didn’t think I would care too much about my sleep pattern but this app soon became my favourite and most valuable app. I love being able to track the quality of my sleep including how long I’ve been in deep sleep!! It’s just so freaking cool and accurate. I am aware now if I don’t get a certain amount of quality sleep that it impacts my day greatly. The app works wonders with the watch but if you don’t wear your watch to bed it will use your phone to track your sleep instead. It tracks the number of hours you slept and within that it tracks the quality, hr (for watch users), deep sleep and how recharge you are. The analysis is very easy to read! Plus support on this app is so great, I asked a question about tracking naps and the developer got back to me super fast and with a very detailed response!
julesBphotography - Detailed Sleep Analysis
The hardest thing about switching from a Fitbit to an Apple Watch was losing the sleep analysis. I tried a free app, which was complete rubbish & measured every moment I lay in bed as quality sleep time. Finally bit the bullet & bought this app & wish I’d done it sooner, it’s amazing. It’s easy to read, packed with data regarding your sleep, plus it’s tweakable if you feel it didn’t accurately represent your night (sometimes that time spent lying doggo desperately trying to get to sleep in the middle of the night understandably looks like you were light sleeping to a motion sensor/heart rate monitor, but it’s a quick fix to calibrate). And if you’re into it like I am you can dive deep into the complex data analysis to check your sleep trends. I found mine extremely accurate straight up. Highly recommend.
Zebra Frig - Best sleep tracking app -love it
I bought my Apple Watch specifically so I could use this app. AutoSleep is super easy to use. Despite my quirky sleep patterns due to illness, it needed virtually no customisation. If AutoSleep isn’t capturing exactly right, there is a super easy adjustment button to use to fix it.
If you want, there are lots of other options -I sometimes forget to leave my iPhone turned on in the night. (The Apple Watch sends info on heart rate and movement to the phone all night to build a picture of your sleep-Eg deep sleep periods.) The edit tools make it very simple to fix this the next day. Sleep hours can be entered in, even if heart rate and movement weren’t captured while the phone was off.
Finally, the support is awesome. There is great written info on most subjects. If something is super tricky, the email support is very fast, very helpful and the software developers are very responsive. They are constantly improving AutoSleep in line with feedback for users.
I love that it is soooo easy to use and collects such a fabulous, detailed picture of my sleep so I can compare patterns over time. AutoSleep is amazing!
Ps the data stays with the user. They don’t sell it. Yay!!!
SomeRandomBl0ke - Excellent App
I tried a few sleep apps when I bought my Apple Watch. This is the only one I still use because I don’t have to do anything. It takes a week or two to tweak it to your sensitivity, but once you’ve done that it just works without user intervention. I have an accurate record of how I’ve been sleeping, (which is kind of depressing, but that’s not the app’s fault.)
If I could suggest one feature I’d like (only if it doesn’t ruin the app’s core function and ease of use) - smart snoring detection. I’d like the app to record when I snore (not random loud noises) so I can map that to my sleep pattern. Other apps do this but aren’t as accurate or convenient for sleep tracking.
devaust88 - Cluttered user interface (HMI) & very inaccurate
The HMI of this app is just awfully unintuitive to use. For those that have not spent at least an hour going over the app’s functions and tweaking in detail, this app is pretty much useless in terms of getting meaningful and ACCURATE data out.
From the start (i.e first time you use the app), the supposed sleep detection is awfully inaccurate and without significant ongoing manual changes by user (i.e constantly going back into app to manually adjust your auto detected ‘sleep’ times), the data you get is grossly wrong. For example lying in bed with iPhone and watching TV is recorded as sleeping even if you’re getting up to go to bathroom, drinking water, raising your arm, sitting to lying or air out the blanket every 15 mins or so etc... Oh and I’m wearing Apple Watch with all detections enabled etc etc...
For those that love to spend endless hours interacting with the app the sleep data (sensitivity accuracy) you get (provided you wear Apple Watch) should be reasonable enough to get meaningful data out after endless “manual readjustment” via the app’s horrible HMI... However don’t expect this app to be a download and use off the bat and ‘she’ll be right app.’
Summary: Terrible HMI/User interface (cluttered, over saturation of information etc.) & app is very very inaccurate when you don’t spend hours “calibrating” the sleep sensitivity!
Mitchell Heward - Best Apple Watch sleep tracking app on the market
I’ve been looking for a great Apple Watch sleep tracking app for some time. All others seem to have the same problem: they don’t sync to the Apple health app unless you open the sleep tracking app each day. AutoSleep manages to sync this data without any hassle from the user. Additionally, it provides you with so much outstanding data and statistics about your sleep. Mine seems to be incredibly accurate too, which I am thrilled about. If you’re worried about spending a bit of money when there are many free alternatives, don’t. AutoSleep trumps all others by a long shot.
Kristopher.P - AutoSleep
I’ve used a Garmin in previous years that worked really well, I was keen to get another sleep app when I bought my Apple Watch. I tend to wake up multiple times a night with a medical condition, so it helps to know how much sleep I’m missing. I looked around at comparison reviews of sleep apps first.. somehow I managed to buy another more expensive app that never recorded when I was awake and added an average 1.5 hours to my total sleep time per night (SleepMatic). I went by the App Store reviews when deciding to try a second app. AutoSleep has been really accurate, no need for me to be buy another app. Would absolutely recommend.
Magic408 - Very easy to use and accurate
I have just converted from a Fitbit to an Apple Watch so I was very keen to get a good app to bridge the sleep monitoring gap. I downloaded another app first and quickly realised it wasn’t very good. I then did some reading a found this app. It’s fantastic. Very comprehensive and easy to use. I would definitely recommend it. I purchased all three in the value pack and it is definitely the way to go because they all feed into each other and the Apple Watch fitness app - providing a 360 perspective about your health and fitness. Thanks for creating this app. I love it and I am in complete Apple Watch heaven now. ;)
Veejayro - Ex sleep apnea sufferer
After having sleep apnea for many years, and finally, because of a large weight loss (from dieting) I reached the stage where there was no sign of sleep apnea, so no more use of troublesome masks and having to carry machines around when I travel overseas. But i find it important to keep a close eye on my sleep patterns, and the sleep app is simple - no more sleep tests - all I need is my fit bit watch.
Brought up in a non technical age, I find it so simple to follow and am quite amazed
that all I need to do is to wear my watch all night. Very happy with it all and the first thing I check on when I get up in the morning!
J.PEREIRA - Large number of easily understood measures
Been using this app for many years.
One of the most easy to understand sleep assessments while including such a large number of metrics for the users information. For those unusual measures, there is an explanation of what each mean, and all seem to have value with how I would sleep. No complaints. Also nice to have an easy and quick to use watch complication for alarm setting!
Issue with the Apple Sleep app is that it requires you to set a bedtime routine which is not suitable for shift work. This just automatically records sleep and allows alarms with no complication.
SkyMaster2 - Very good. Insightful.
I’m always dubious when it comes to ‘apps’, as most appear to be conceived by kiddies, ....well at least they appear to be.
This ‘app’ is quite useful though. And not ‘updated’ like most half thought through attempts at programming, which is re-assuring. Someone actually tested it before marketing, which is seldom a practice seen today. It hasn’t crashed at all!
Back to the point ....
I don’t believe it has altered my sleep perception too much though, but its interesting to have a look at in the mornings.
The rings of the U.I. are a little confusing when they start to overlap, but if you select the adjustments options, it has a serious attempt to streamline its input data, more to ones personal attributes.
The ‘rings’ U.I. System made me be weary at first, much like the other offerings that take one as a child in a kindergarten ....the ones that almost give you a gold star for cleaning ones desk!
It works perfectly with the ‘X’ and v3 watch perfectly.
Recommend. YES. Very useful.
lovemoreful - Major update has led app to loose training and no longer accurate.
Ever since the dramatic update to AutoSleep - a lot of the long term ‘training’ I’ve done with the app has been wasted. I find that the app does not reflect my sleep appropriately any more and always requires adjustment - even to the point where I have to edit it manually because the choices it provides does not reflect what has actually happened. I did change Apple watches during this time as well...so maybe it’s the Apple Watch...however the change coincides more with the app update. It’s been a few months now and it’s coming to the point where the app leads to more inconvenience then powering me with information. I’ll keep giving it a go but am now opened to trying other sleep tracking applications
BigBrownSheepDog - Best sleep app ever
I’ve been looking for a great sleep tracking app for a very long time and been disappointed time and again, until now. AutoSleep does exactly what it needs to, exactly the way it describes.
It tracks sleep and gives details and stats that help you gauge where you sit with your sleeping habits.
Paired with the Apple Watch makes the app even better with tracking of sleep, heart rate and detailed movement analysis.
Top that off with a single one off payment instead of the subscription model that most developers are going for these days, you just can’t go past this app.
dokh22 - Works great
Just what I have been hoping to find for my Apple Watch. Other sleep tracking app solutions require manual input - AutoSleep is completely "set and forget" and works brilliantly. The iPhone interface provides useful details about your sleep quality - not the most intuitive GUI but certainly gets the job done. Have been missing such a solution since switching from another branded fitness tracker to Apple Watch. WatchOS may introduce sleep tracking in the future, but for now AutoSleep is the best way to track sleep on Apple Watch. Highly recommended.
RON@*&ˆ - Good app with some issues
I have been using this for approx a year and like the way it gives the phases of sleep (light, still and deep) and a useful number of extra features such as heart rate dip and noise levels.
One issue is that regularly it gets the amount of sleep wrong & this cannot be corrected using its adjustment feature. It only offers limited options not full ability to specify sleep duration.
It should also be noted that the sleep categories do not necessarily correspond with sleep stages since it is mainly based on measuring heart rate and motion, so you could be still and not moving but awake.
Stv777 - Helps Understand and Improve Sleep
This app has helped me understand and improve my sleep routine and health. Using in conjunction with Apple Watch, I've gradually taken the app's suggestions to go to bed earlier and sleep longer. The only caveat is sometimes it shows I'm awake when I'm actually asleep which then gives an inaccurate sleep duration. Tracking my heart and pulse helps me understand why I wake feeling sluggish or energised. Unsure how to improve that except through regular exercise and getting more sheep. Is it worth purchasing? Absolutely!
Dabinoaks - Great app
I love this app. I thought it was really a gimmick until I started to use it. I now sleep longer as I am aware of how few hours I was getting. I also became aware of how my heartbeat changes if I drink alcohol - like 2 glasses of beer or one of wine - in the evening before sleeping - usually heartbeat is up 6-10% and corresponding sleep not as good. I know that’s probably a reasonable expectation but having the evidence helps you to choose if that’s what you want to do to your body - the finer details of the app - level of sleep and restlessness is also really useful in understanding how your everyday life is impacting on your sleep/health.
zagundo - I ❤️ AutoSleep
I love this. And it’s sister app HeartWatch. The data a find both highly accurate and insightful. I check both apps every morning.
I’m now more aware of my need to “recharge” with a catch up sleep.
I truly love checking my waking and sleeping heart rate and judging that against my mood / health / activities / sleep quality of the day(s) prior.
The data helps me take actions to adjust a few little daily behaviors and get a better night’s sleep - then voilà - a better, calmer, healthier and more productive ensues.
Likewise if you stay up late, go out partying and drinking cocktails all night - well, you can have fun predicting how high your waking heart rate will be, how high or low your quality or depth of sleep was.
How does it do it so accurately? One reason is that you can tell it what type of sleeper you are. Whether you sleep like an immovable log, or you naturally toss and turn a whole lot. Or somewhere in between.
Gsx130063 - Information plus
When I first got the app I was sceptical, but after a short time it became an intricate part of my life , I could work out when I was stressed my sleep was deeply affected, the sleep improved a great deal when I wasn’t, in saying that it has a lot of information , graphs ,sleep patterns, it’s all relevant about sleep and heart rates, cycles etc , it’s a great app it’s user friendly and a great interface, could not do without it now , highly recommended , thanks again for a great app 😀😀😀
hshsnwosiebeh - Wonderful
I am still tired in the morning when I wake up even though I sleep enough hours. I thought I might be sick or something but this app helped me understand my sleep patterns and that my sleep is very disrupted and don’t get much quality sleep. Now I am trying new things to find what works for me to get a better night sleep and this app helps me work out what is working or not. Now if there was just an app to stop hubby snoring my sleep would be perfect 😂
Ps101010 - Just excellent
I was a little skeptical at first about this app, and I don’t like paying for apps so I was very resistant. My lack of sleep in a heatwave was worse than my empty wallet so I tried this app out.
Absolutely amazed about the data it collected, from hours of sleep to heart rate, sleep quality, deep sleep data, everything! Thanks to the information this app has compiled, I have studied it and found my flaws in my sleeping habits, and have corrected them.
I am now having better quality sleep for the right amount of time for my body. Very impressed with the functionality and ease of use of this app😄
I highly recommend you try it if you are thinking about it, but make sure you are ok with wearing the Apple Watch while you sleep, that’s where all the data comes from.
NOTE: I use Apple Watch series 2, works fantastic😄
Remington Sterling - Sleep tracking is now part of my life
This app is so comprehensive yet easy to use, I highly recommend it. It basically tracks my sleep automatically, and I use it in conjunction with their HeartWatch app. Wearing my Apple Watch to sleep is actually really comfortable. I just turn on cinema mode so the display doesn't turn on, and do not disturb so it doesn't vibrate. If I charge it before bed I wake up with still 100%, and that's after tracking pulse and sleep patterns all night. Excellent
RevinOz - Great sleep assessment
I often wake in the night and sometimes feel that I have not slept well at all. This app has helped me recognise patterns in my life which affect my sleep. Using the app I have made some good changes ie when to eat dinner, dealing with issues of day before sleeping etc. obvious stuff but I never took action before. My deep sleep is now longer and I seldom wake in the night. Really recommend, very professionally setup and no ongoing cost!
Yshima89 - Good app. Lazy dev.
Requested a feature. Dev said he’d implement. It’s actually based on simple maths and even a beginner would have been able to add it with very little effort or knowledge. Didn’t appear after months, I sent an email and he blamed his workload. Understandable. But then months have passed again and this incredibly simple option still hasn’t appeared. When ya pay for an app ya kinda wanna feel appreciated for supporting the dev ya know? If you’re not gonna do it, just say so lol instead of creating false hope. That’s all it takes. If you’d just said no, you don’t think you’d be able to do it, just say so. I would have been happy instead of being strung along for all these months haha.
Mr milfhunter - Not the most attractive but it’s the most accurate
I first got this app via reviews with everyone raving about it. My first impression of this app over ‘pillow app’ was that it looked like the ugly brother. Anyway I have both of them a shot and AutoSleep gave me so much more insights and more accuracy than the latter. Plus it even picked up on my naps which ‘pillow app’ didn’t. Now I’m used to the design of the app and couldn’t imagine it any other way.....5 stars!
wildatheart92 - Great app! High accuracy & extremely thorough!
Awesome app! In fact both app’s I’ve downloaded by this developer are of high quality (AutoSleep, & HeartWatch) and clearly designed to work excellently together!
Layout’s super easy to understand & navigate... The use of colours also makes it much simpler visually to compare results.
All in all, the app’s data is extremely thorough & user friendly! (Most importantly, results are highly accurate for me so far!)
ALLFLUTES - Comprehensive Sleep App
This is an amazing app with so much detail in the data. I’m still learning to use the various functions as there are so many ways of looking at the sleep data.
The general information on achieving a healthy night’s sleep is also most helpful. As a long-standing insomniac, I find it comforting to know that even waking up at night does not necessarily mean a poor night sleep if the other elements, such as deep sleep, are okay.
#$&gfds - No muss no fuss
Amazing! Maybe a little bit of tuning when you first install it, to get the detection right for you. After the, it just gives you high quality sleep data without having to think about it. The biggest problem is that it’s far more accurate if you wear your Watch while you sleep, which means that you need to find another time to charge it; but that’s hardly the fault of the app.
_KO_ - Great help managing chronic illness
Getting a decent night of refreshing sleep is very important in managing my chronic illnesses. This app helps me immensely, by not only tracking sleep, but also apparent depth of sleep and heart rate correlation. It's also easily adjusted in case you know you were lying still rather than asleep (or vice versa). Syncing this and other daily data together gives me a great overview of my health and correlations in behaviours and treatments, both short and longer term.
Stitcheddesign - In depth and accurate
I have been using this app for sometime now. It is the only app I have found to work automatically in identifying when I’m asleep and awake. It is accurate and provides in-depth information about your sleep and sleeping habits. Won’t be going to another anytime soon. If you want more in-depth information about your heart, definitely grab the heart watch app by the same team!
Great work guys, keep it up!!
jeremybank - Full featured, but hard to decipher
I’ve been using AutoSleep for hundreds of nights and love that I don’t need to do anything to initiate the tracking. I’d like to see some proactive, automatic analysis of all the data that’s been accumulated to give me some insights. Like, am I waking at the most ideal time based on my deep and light sleep patterns. It’s hard for me to get an answer to that question. Design wise the app is a bit dense and could benefit from a design pass to round out some of the rough edges like UI elements, colour palette and so on. Look forward to the future of the app.
II Scarecrow II - The Most Comprehensive Sleep Tracker!
I was frustrated that I had to buy a sleep tracker app compared to the native support in other devices by Garmin and FitBit, but this has turned out to be a fantastic app! Incredibly comprehensive and detailed, the “auto” feature of autosleep is exceptionally accurate and the information is quite deep and thorough along with providing tips to improve the quality of your sleep. Highly recommend.
Sugar poppie - Does not accurately record wake ups
I swapped from a Fitbit to an Apple Watch and was struggling to find an app to track my sleep. This one had tons of great reviews, so it was an easy pick.
I am very disappointed in its lack of tracking wake up periods. Unless your awake for 15 mins or more, it does not record that you have woken. I am up and down with 2 kids all night and the app only records it if I am up for a long period. This makes me doubt the other data that it is meant to be recording. I think I’ll just have to go back to wearing my Fitbit at night so that I get an accurate record of my sleep for the night.
Very unhappy (and tired) customer.
NicoleMack - Very Good but could be better
There’s a whole like I love about this app and how it tracks my sleep. But, I hate the way it combines sleeps sessions and then gives you a poor readiness score if you go back to sleep within an hour or so of waking up. For example, I might have a green 4 star readiness score when I wake up at 7 am after 8 hours sleep but if I nap for another hour an hour or so afterwards, my readiness score falls to red 1 star. It should be characterized as a separate sleep session.
Cind3rz - Great app
This app is a MUST have app for anyone that wants to track their lifestyle, it’s so easy, you don’t even have to remember to turn it on before bed it just automatically does it’s thing.
As a full time working mum with Graves’ disease I knew I was sleep poor, by this app has helped me understand just how sleep poor I was and I am now working towards a how’d of filling my sleep bank.
Thanks for this app, it’s amazing and addictive
Guvner - Great App
This is such a good app and just gives so much information so you can really see what is going on and in my case why I am feeling as tired as I do during the day. It is almost confronting, but in a good way so then you maybe able to do something about it as it helps you to understand it. It is like a lot of things in life whereby if you can track your faults someway, you can repair them.
Lukethh - Great app for data lovers. Could use some broader features
Love this app because I love data. Using the Apple watch gives me accurate info on my sleep habits and patterns.
However I would like the addition of a sleep cycle alarm, because I'm having to use a separate app for that! There are many of them out there, so it can't be too hard of a feature to implement.
Note! The same developers do have a smart alarm, but it's a separate paid app..
Love this app either way.
Kaiser Wilhelmina I - Accurate and Integrates with Apple Health
I’ve had over a year of use before writing this review and note the app developer has continued to refine this product. I came across it because I purchased the developers autowake alarm watch. I found it accurate at detecting sleep to begin with and it’s nice to see it giving helpful advice reminding you of sleep state. I was impressed enough to purchase their heartwatch app as well.
Direwolf Brenda - Best sleep app I’ve used
Super easy to use and really accurate, I’ve been using pillow for the last year or so and I just felt like it wasn’t giving me as much information, so I looked to see if anything new/better/updated was out there for the new watch iOS.
Which is how I found auto sleep, and it is fantastic.
I really like the function that you can tell it you’ve gone to bed and it will then be able to tell you, in the morning, how long you took to actually fall asleep. But I also like that it will still track your sleep automatically if you don’t do that.
The actual stats it tracks are easy to understand, especially considering it tracks a lot. 10/10 would recommend 😁
cypressfoss - Excellent
This is far better than a previous sleep tracking app I’ve used; the information reflects how I feel in the morning & (as far as I can tell given that I’m asleep!) ties-in with what I know of my night. It’s super easy to use, the information is clearly laid-out, and it’s enabling me to alter my habits & behaviour in order to promote a good sleep. Proof that eating before bed, drinking alcohol, or not taking time out to wind-down before bedtime, have a radical negative effect on a restful night’s sleep!
CosyQ - It works!
I have tried a couple of apps and so far this works perfectly. It’s automatically detecting your sleep and wake times, but you need to wear your apple watch which what I am doing anyway. I love that it could have a SIRI command if we meant to let the app know that we’re about to go to sleep, so it can count how many minutes each time to go to sleep. 5 stars and worth every penny!
DFE19 - Incredibly thorough
I’m not sure if this is helping my sleep but it certainly gives an incredibly detailed description of what’s going on and it has made me a lot more aware of my sleep and the importance of it. I find some of the graphs or information overly complicated (that just me) and would be great to have a section of ‘better sleep tips’. Other than a fantastic app. Thank you.
Fleeced42 - A great app, worth every penny
This is a great app for tracking sleep and the recent update (with sleep credit tracking) is even better. I did have to adjust the colours used in settings to make it easier for my colour-blindness, but other than that have no complaints.
This, along with the HeartWatch app, is part of my daily routine, and has helped be live a healthier life (the AutoWake app is sadly less useful).
I<3all - How does it know?!
It’s amazing what technology can do these days and I’m proud to say that AutoSleep is one of the most useful advancements. No need to set anything it just measures all by itself and I’ve got to be honest it’s pretty accurate not only measuring your hours of sleep, but the quality and your heart rate when sleeping. I can definitely tell if I’ve been sleeping well or if I need more and what’s best for perfecting sleep habits. ;)
Gottabegoodtokeepit - Long term data app
Most Apple Watch data apps that I download fall into one of two categories. The first are apps that seem like a good idea but once the initial excitement has gone you stop logging and the data becomes useless. The second are apps that make great use of Apple Watch technology to log in the background. Much more useful. AutoSleep does its thing very, very well leaving me to do mine. 😴
Nocky61 - Fantastic
Have been using this for a few months now and can’t fault it, tried a couple of the free apps that were very average at best (one saying I was sleeping whilst at work, boss would be impressed 😂) Auto sleep is well worth the money and works with Apple Watch Infograph face, I paired it with HeartWatch also a brilliant app and again well worth the money, I have a medical condition and both these apps help me immensely
Caprio4456 - Great App
When I started to have difficulty sleeping, I was often of the impression that I was only getting 2-3 hrs of sleep consistently. Just knowing that made me feel atrocious. Using the sleep app has helped remarkably. I’m still not sleeping well, but at least I have a much more accurate idea of what sleep I’m getting. It’s much more usually 3-5 hrs rather than 2-3 hours and knowing that makes a difference.
Rinat Far - Precise and hassle free
I love how this app works. It's very accurate, calibrated to your lifestyle and does not require any specific actions when going to bed. You just sleep whenever and however (naps and blackouts included) and it just keeps track of every minute :)
All you need is an Apple Watch and then a couple of days calibrating the app for your lifestyle.
I also love the HeartWatch app that these guys are doing.
Cocolea1973 - Restored my faith in Sleep Apps
I’ve had various sleep trackers since they first came out years ago, none amazing. And when I got my Apple Watch I struggled to find a decent one. I gave up for at least the last 12 months or so until I saw an article rating AutoSleep last week. Glad I saw it as this is the best and easiest Sleep App I’ve used and I highly recommend it!

M fr Toronto - Great with watch!
Although it does take some planning to keep your watch battery charged, I have learned some tricks. When watching TV at night, I charge my watch so it’s capable of working overnight. It doesn’t consume a lot of power while I’m sleeping, so a quick recharge while I’m taking a shower in the morning more than amply keeps the watch going well into the evening. I don’t even think about starting/stopping the app when I go to bed. It does an amazing job of automatically capturing my sleep and wake cycles and I’m seeing some progress in altering my routine to support better sleep. I would just warn people not to get obsessed over some of the results. Look at general trends and get acquainted with good sleep habits to watch your progression. Truly, it’s a very helpful tool. Hats off to the developer!
MartoonThink - Helped significantly to achieve sleep goals
This app was recommended to me. I’ve only used one other sleep tracking app. An app won’t improve your sleep by itself, you still need to make the effort to change habits. This app was important in providing the feedback about what was working, which accelerated my progress. I reached a point where the feeling of a great night of sleep was corroborated by the data in the app.
I would have given a 9/10 because I found it difficult to navigate the UI in the beginning. That said, it’s worthwhile to make the effort to explore and understand the depth of this app.
hanskra123456 - Perfect for Apple Watch
Gives reliably more than enough info about the night. Works perfect with my Apple Watch. I can’t understand ppl who say the Apple Watch battery life doesn’t allow using this software all night. Fairy tales. Use it.
True Albertan - Stopped Working
Love this app, but completely stopped working with latest iOS update. Yes, all permissions were allowed.
brosbrahs - Used to be great but...
... since updating to watchOS 7, it’s stopped tracking my sleep hours correctly. Needs a major update before anyone should purchase.
Top Girl Paris - This app doesn’t work - Don’t waste your money!
Downloaded this app thinking it must be better than free ones. It’s been a week but still haven’t recorded anything. The app doesn’t work. I emailed the developer but didn’t hear back from them. I want my money back.
Marfior - Très bonne application
Application très intéressante qui fonctionne vraiment bien, à recommander
Ciel42 - Not liking update
Used to love this app but since the last update it has become way too complicated. It used to be used friendly, all relevant info in the same place... Now it’s a mess. Quite disappointed about the change to be honest. Interface was prettier looking before as well...
DaveT967 - New version much cleaner
Still a wealth of information about your sleep but now presented much more clearly. Only downside to new version is you need to always sleep the same way (ie wearing watch or not). Sometimes I like to sleep not wearing watch so have to exclude those days.
Shut Up & Play - Insanely awesome and accurate
This guy knows sleep tracking. Better than anyone else imo. I’ve tried many and this one is my staple. I have sleep issues and on days I feel bad I check this and see right away why. Not sure how he figured out these optimal algorithms but it’s crazy accurate. Highly recommend. Worth every penny! Btw I use Apple Watch so just have that experience to comment on. Using an Apple Watch 2 currently.
Wally0911 - Great App
Really love this App, inspired me to go to bed earlier!
PeterDTown - I feel bad for the developer
This app has been fantastic since the first day I got my Apple watch!
... Until iOS 14 and watch os 7. I haven't recorded a single minute of sleep since the update. I feel bad for the developer, but this has been Apple's way of doing business for years and years. Copy the most successful 3rd party apps, make their features default functionality, then screw up their ability to operate. They should be sued over it, but for now that's just how it goes doing business with Apple.
ghgrgg - Used to be a great app then they updated it-now it sucks
I used to love this app. Once they updated it, it’s terrible. Now it’s inaccurate data at best. Spend more time editing the information that I was actually asleep and not awake then anything else. Emailed about it, was told it was a user issue. Not a very professional reply. I’m a pretty savvy tech person. And no it’s not me, It's you! Very unhappy.
yangyman - Great but missing one thing...
I love the apps insights and it works well. The only thing I would like to see is snoring & ambient sounds recording if your iPhone is in the room (like on a night stand charging). That combine with the Apple Watch data would show the full picture of what is causing poor sleep
tantramar - not having to remember to start or stop tracking = killer feature
Best sleep tracking app I've tried.
phabriss - Great sleep tracking app
Lots of features... must have!
Sisefein - GIGO
It is evident from user complaints that the most recent version of AutoSleep was not thoroughly tested before release - GIGO.
Please revert to the previous version of AutoSleep.
The issues with the current version of AutoSleep must be resolved through code review and internal testing.
The fact that multiple users experience the same issues with the latest update - and that users are told the issues lie with them and not with the developers and testers -indicates that
1. the source of the problem is due to lack of thorough testing prior to launching the upgrade
2. your developers, testers, business analysts, and customer relations staff are failing your customers.
Dtamn - Changed Me!
This app completely changed my life. I wasn’t a good sleeper until I started using this app. Now I understand how alcohol, food, and my bedtime habits affect my sleep and well being. This app is worth every penny!
K.C.S. THYNC USER - Great, well thought out app. Simple, effective, useful
Job well done!
eic1976 - Loving it
I’ve used many sleep apps since i got my Apple Watch and this app is definitely the best app I’ve used
Nnnnny - Does not work
App does not work with my iPhone 12 and iWatch 6. Reached out to support but received horrible customer service. Deleted App.
nt2895 - So simple and easy to use
This was the cheapest simplest and easiest sleeping app that I’ve ever had. It’s user-friendly and very specific. I love how it shows me my sleep depth throughout the night and also the noise levels in the room.
nbrempel - The best sleep tracking app
This is the beat one. I tried many.
Sternboy - So much info, I love it.
This app is exactly what I was looking for since I got rid of my Fitbit.
Numb Scull - Great app
Have had it for 3 months now, seems accurate and helps with getting a good sleep if you use the feedback.
plintz - Super helpful
I have tried several devices over the years to try and get my sleep optimized. This is by far the most convenient because of the auto sleep feature and accurate and helpful. Also the display of the data is really useful. Excellent app and is helping me sleep better and perform better.
Stinky Pete2 - Lots of data!
Lot’s of data to look at. The app provides details about many sleep metrics, and ideas on how to improve your sleep.
njcfif - Does not work!
I am a terrible insomniac! Thought the watch would give me some good data to help me out. But I will sleep for two hours and watch says I slept for 9 1/2 hours. Wildly in accurate, not sure why I even gave it one star.
Shaoolin - Must have for Watch users
This app is an absolute must-have for any watch user. Not only is it powerful beyond belief, but its usefulness in helping you keep tab of your sleep, readiness, heart rate (fantastic combination with HeartWatch from the same fellas) ... is unparalleled. Sleep is a major contributor to any weight loss and fitness program, and this app is without a doubt the best in the market.
Evanob1122 - Best sleeping app
Honestly I love this app after you get used to it you will love it it’s super accurate it literally knows when I sleep and when I’m awake and it’s like 100% accurate I don’t even know how it does it some things still learning because got so much details but it’s very accurate best sleep app in App Store period and one time fee amazing unlike others charge you monthly these guys aren’t greedy and very loyal to customers I bought HeartWatch app and love it too also amazing with so much extra for one fee got everything you need only app I’m not happy about is autowake needs work doesn’t work at all not sure seems like they aren’t looking into it at all I’m not sure how you have a great sleep app a great HeartWatch app but can’t work on autowake app it doesn’t even start the alarm it’s very confusing to me that you have super accurate app like this but can’t bother working on autowake that’s kind of weird to me most companies if they make amazing app they don’t leave another app behind its part of this the autowake app is part of these apps like one fsmily you should make them all perfect not sure what’s behind the reason why they aren’t fixing that app it’s kind of weird to me
Dutymum - Update
Worked great up till the update now it’s broke - They did an update the next day and works great now, thanks
Fr@nkStr33t - Excellente APP complète
L'application est géniale. Elle fournie une quantité impressionnante d'informations quand une présentation tout de même facile à comprendre et bien illustré. Les données recueillies reflètes la qualité réel du sommeil que j'ai d'une nuit à l'autre.
Bonne app pour faire le suivi des manques à gagner en Zzzz
bbbbccca - Works perfectly with the info you want to know
This is the best sleep app out there. It has all the info you need and can be customized for what you want to see quickly. It does exactly what it says it will without fuss.
Cokeguy81 - Use it daily
One of my everyday use apps.... as long as I keep the watch charged it’s an awesome tracker....
Seems pretty accurate on my sleep and wake up times....
Well worth the money!!
Sergerry - Simply the best
Had it for 4 years now.
dchasekelly - My first recommendation
When one of my friends gets a watch, this is the first app I recommend to them. The accuracy and ease of use is unparalleled. Keep up the great work!
Ac2mw2 - Bonne apps
Offre un très bon suivie et sa fonctionne bien!!!
2vdog - Useless and completely confusing
Paid for the bundle including AutoWake and HeartWatch months ago, never used them properly. Just as confusing and useless as the native Apple sleep tracking app.
Removed the whole lot from my phone.
I use Sleep cycle, Pillow and Sleepzy.
Shaku Louis - Elder Care Ulrich
This system has done wonders in helping me manage and understand my sleep patterns. Also I am a chronic migrainer and this system is a help to be sure I get enough sleep, especially good sleep. Thanx. An 82 year old,Canada.
winningattitude - Excellent
I’ve used and tested quite a few, this one is actually fantastic, actually enjoy looking forward to it every single morning, I find it to be very accurate as I reflect on my nights sleep, and I like how it provides a lot of interesting data points. Don’t hesitate to get this one.
PPPaillé - Excellente application
Complète, facile à utiliser. Aide beaucoup à gérer le sommeil. Je recommande fortement.
jonquille68 - dodo
jgrâce à cet app je peux mieux voir mon déficit de sommeil je suis partie de 23% à 4% ça fait toute une différence je me sent mieux maintenant
le fait de voir si j ai fait une bonne nuit m aide à planifier des temps de dodo supplémentaire pour palier à mon déficit bravo
Duncman73 - Great sleeping app
Apple should have this on there phones automatically. Tells me everything!! Awesome app!!
aaamr01 - Make sure permissions are set right!
My previous issues were all permissions related. Once these are set properly this app works great!
Jackielovesthisalot - I like it.
It’s fun. Lots of information. You have to delve deep.
ZCooperstown - Great insights!
One of my first — and favourite — downloads for my Apple Watch. I get great insight into the systems and patterns of my sleep, which has led to me modifying my routines and ultimately feeling more rested. Most of the time, anyway. Also wanted to applaud the customer service. I reached out with questions about some of my findings, and they talked me through it all patiently. Thank you! Highly recommend!
Jkrock3 - Love it
So I’ve been using this app for a few months now and it’s really help me out with my sleep, and what to avoid before I go to sleep.
p.s I would like to do a nap or a siesta option I the future
Avid*Reader - Really Helpful App
Provides insight into sleep habits + reminders. More in depth info for users with greater expertise.
GGGGGGGGGGGG$ - iOS 14.0.1
Does not work with this operating system. The app needs a major update. Used to work great prior to iOS 14.
hPlay - Not worth it for a paid app
It doesn’t upload my sleep info automatically. (Thats the only reason I have it) it’s missing weeks at a time 😟

EMG36 - Enlightened
This is one of my favorite apps. Prior to using it, there were days I’d wake up feeling lossy and I couldn’t figure out why. Well, now I know it was because I slept poorly! I may have slept for 8 hours, but was unknowingly restless and didn’t get any “deep sleep.”
It’s given me perspective on the impact of booze, too. I don’t know if I’m uniquely sensitive to it, but if I have more than 2 or 3 drinks, my sleep stats really suffer. My heart rate jumps 20% to 40% above my no-booze norm and I don’t get any deep sleep. I had always known that alcohol can negatively impact sleep, but seeing is believing. I just don’t grab those extra drinks at night anymore ... because if I don’t get that deep sleep ... I just feel sad.
If you’re into health stats and doing everything you can to always being at your best, you’re going to really dig this app. “Heart Health” is awesome too, so just get the bundle 👍
Frito/Fargo - Use it every day.
Since using this app I’ve become more aware of my sleep habits, the good and the bad. Without awareness I’ve been able to adjust my sleep habits for the better.
Since we are told that daily exercise leads to more complete rest during sleep (or something like that) I wish the program could interface with my daily exercise as recorded by my watch and my iPhone and present a correlation between days of good exercise and the resulting nights sleep. Do I actually sleep better when I exercise during the day? If the answer is positive I think that would be good encouragement for getting at least a little exercise every single day.
One additional comment is that I tried to use voice recognition to provide this review but the apps ability to deal with voice recognition was almost 0. I had to go to my one notes and dictate this response and then copy and paste it into the review block.
CAD.Bear - Amazing data and analytics
You may not think your Apple Watch is a powerful tool for achieving better sleep, but wearing it constantly to bed for a month provides many data points. I usually manually start my sleep so I get a better idea of the time required to achieve sleep, but it does a pretty good job without it. (I also always put the watch in Theater Mode to avoid display activation and then deactivate it upon waking). I use Pillow also in fully automatic mode, as this was my first sleep app, but it’s analytics pale in comparison with AutoSleep. One great feature is that you can tune the goals. Both Pillow and AutoSleep give a sleep quality score, but I had to mentally normalize the score in Pillow, where in AutoSleep, I just looked at the months of data and adjusted the Quality ring to show 100% when I hit my average. I also strongly recommend AutoWake and HeartWatch.
YouEatPig - Best Sleep Tracker
I’ve tried a couple sleep trackers on iOS and this is by far the best. The developer seems to really care and really care about feedback. If you’re on the fence about buying it, just go for it, especially if you have an Apple Watch. I was using a free sleep tracker that requires the user to start and stop tracking, but Autosleep doesn’t need this. You can tell it when you go to bed optionally and it will track how long it takes you to fall asleep based on movement and your heart rate. There are tons of options in it.
Really it’s nearly a perfect app. The only thing I could ask for is more metrics and charts to see. The biggest one I’d want is a time to fall asleep metric in the monthly history section. It already shows a ton of stuff, but more could never hurt, and I’d like to see if there’s any correlation with other metrics and my time to fall asleep.
Ldkpick - One of the Best Apps
I rarely use the adjective “awesome “ because it is overused and misused to the extent that it has lost its true definition. But this app is, indeed, awesome. It is a complete package that captures all aspects of one’s sleep patterns. If I think it is misreading the amount of sleep I am experiencing, I can adjust it accordingly. I can track and even export the graphs that capture the individual states of sleep. When I first got the app I had problems making it work, but by using the FAQs and precise instructions I got it going in no time. Comprehensive history is there which can be drilled into for targeted queries. The developers also explain the science behind the app. It captures ambient environmental noise so you can see if and how it affects your sleep.
If you are serious about understanding how you sleep, there is no other app out there that you should be considering.
Keyboard_Frenzy - Still better than iOS integration
The extra star to put it on the top is that it is both more informative, more configurable, and more consistent for me than even the built in sleep tracking feature on the newest versions of watchOS. I am a pretty tech savvy person, with a computer science degree, but I cannot reliably get iOS to track my sleep by itself. This has always been rock steady, and doesn’t affect battery life too much from what I can tell. Has a nice early wake feature, and a nice charge reminder feature.
Really glad I bought this app. Definitely worth the money.
antiMusic - Update May 2019: new version way off
Been using this app for a year and a half and become more inaccurate with every update and the latest is the worse. No tweaks fix it. With new watch Os and latest version of this app it shows me not only asleep while wide awake it shows me in deep sleep too. Hope they work out bugs because this was a very useful app.
Original review: I have always had periods where my sleep pattern gets off and it takes weeks to get back on track (side note I recently found taking magnesium and l-theanine works when almost all sleep aids fail for me). I bought an Apple Watch specifically to track my sleep and bought this app right away. Tried a few others since and they track non-existent sleep. Had to play with settings and the tweak tool for a few days to dial it in but finally got it where it tracks my sleep perfectly for the past month (did update to latest version a few days ago and still tweaking). and it’s nice to know how much actual and deep sleep I am getting.
Luckypop1 - The only app I recommend!
I intensively researched every sleep app and chose this one and I’m SO GLAD I did. I’m a 51 year old athlete and rely on the input I get from this app and their other app-HeartWatch. I’ve used this app for over a year, and the sleep numbers are dead on accurate. I suffered a severe Traumatic Brain Injury months after I started the app, and it detected the sleep changes the TBI caused! I need this app to function, especially since my accident, because I need to track intricate differences in my sleep/wake cycle through the night and it very accurately does this. Combined with the Heart Watch app, I can see how much I have recovered from my training so I don’t overtrain and set off
TBI symptoms. I can’t tell you how critical this app’s information is for maintaining my health.
This app is deep with details, if you want them, but extremely intuitive to use. I use it with Apple Watch Series 1.
The developer is wonderfully responsive and has on more than one occasion answered my questions in detail by email within the same day, and really helped me with my unique health needs.
I also love that these apps integrate perfectly with Apple a Health so I can have all the info in one place.
You won’t regret getting this app-it’s the only one I’ve ever been thoroughly happy with. So worth the TINY cost!
jtomlove - Great piece of software art got the quantified self
I’ve been using AutoSleep for about 18 months, ever since I got my Watch. First, for the casual/lazy, it just works, and well. Great table stakes. 2nd, it’s got a beautiful interface, with clean presentation of the basics but depth if you choose to drill down/explore. 3rd, not that you’ll need support, if you do the combo of built-in and web-based assistance seems above average, and the one or two times I contacted them I got very quick email response. Their other apps seem interesting (YMMV) and appear to be integrated tightly with AutoSleep and together; bonus. As my motivation to explore and use this app grows, it exposes more depth and design consideration. If I have any reservations they involve how the app falls short in explaining its displays and capabilities, and in how one might use its data to effect change and achieve desired results.
2matt - Adds a ton of value to Apple Watch
Wow! This app is amazing and I honestly can’t believe it doesn’t cost much more. It adds a ton of value to the Apple Watch since it doesn’t have built in support for tracking sleep. Coming from a Fitbit versa that did this automatically, I was really missing this feature. However, sleep tracking with this app is even better than what’s built in to the versa. You get much more detailed and accurate data and the ability to fine tune it if needed. In fact, I reached out to the developer for an issue I was having with it tracking during meditation sessions and he talked through the issue with me until we found a solution.
Fantastic app that everyone should use and a super responsive developer that supports his app. One of the best apps in the store for sure. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
WISEMAN18 - Djt
App is the best so far I have experienced for a week and learning to use it. It has a lot of measurements , graphs, adjustable goals etc. I am still learning the various captures and time , value readings to correlate how I feel I have slept. And confirm such experiences. At this point, I am still learning it’s operation and readings. I have experience I have to turn of categories, reboot iPhone then turn on categories in order to have iPhone recieve data from I watch. It there a solution to keep app in constant connection with the iPhone and app? Kindly advise. Help instructions are very helpful though has to be improve as far as the sequencing of the steps. So novice user can use this app effectively and serve his purpose. More power to you design and needs a bit of tweaking to result it to be more user friendly. Very promising sleep application.
Jayy.Tee - Doesn’t track accurately for me at all
Like another reviewer mentioned below, I’m also coming from a Fitbit charge 2 which had phenomenal sleep tracking. Unlike the charge 2, this app doesn’t catch when I’m awake in the middle of the night. I’ve gone thru all the settings to calibrate my sleep, changed my heart rate type, and gone thru the setup multiple times. I shouldn’t have to tweak my sleep on a daily basis. I’m guessing it’s something with their algorithm, which shows I have a pretty high heart rate while I sleep and unlike the charge 2, which showed my heart rate dipping down into the 50s. Not sure what’s going on with this app but it’s inaccurate and not worth the money in my opinion. You don’t need to mess with any of the settings on a Fitbit and it tracks accurately, while with this one you do need to tinker around with it. It’s a pain and shouldn’t be a necessity on the daily. And another thing is the UI, it’s not simple and user friendly like the fitbit’s. If it wasn’t for me loving my watch and all it’s other capabilities, I would seriously consider going back to the charge 2.
ZAeriously?! - Sleep Tracker App
The first thing I do every morning is check my sleep results on this app. This sleep app provides excellent sleep data, tracks trends, and provides very useful info about specific elements of sleep hygiene. You can review the overall results of each night’s sleep and can also dig into each result for more specific data. The app is filled with great info for user navigation, and the support team was very responsive when I had a question about functionality. The only downside is that occasionally the data does not register on my phone and my app shows a reading error. Don’t know if it is my Apple Watch or my phone that causes this error. Overall I am very satisfied - this app is well worth the $5 and I am definitely improving my sleep habits and quality of sleep due to the information this app provides!
carpedivum - Fantastic
I have been using this app, and others of theirs.... and it is great.
I fully support this. It has simple data for people who don’t want o dig deep... it very automated and doesn’t require much attention. BUT..... BIG BUT here. For those who love to go deep and learn and see trends.... it’s simply amazing. To me.... this is what other developers are missing. The big data analysis. This little device offers an opportunity into the window of our lives a way that we’ve never had before. And these guys get that. I have learned so much about myself from the data that these guys collect and allow me to compare/analyze. Like my REM rhythm seems to be roughly 1 hr 20 min. And waking up in the middle of the night to pee at the right time based on that rhythm has actually improved my heart rate and my sleep quality significantly!! Thank u for all you do!
SirFlop - Works as advertised
Really useful app. Just need to remember to keep my Apple Watch charged and to wear it at night. This app isn’t perfect, and I use it along side of Pillow, set to manually track my sleep, but I often forget to push the button with it being late and me being sleepy- enter AutoSleep! This app has really helped to fill in the gaps in my sleep tracking. The visuals are powerfully informative, and there are more features than I even know of. The documentation and the help is informative and does not leave me frustrated and scratching my head. If you feel overwhelmed with a feature, worry not, the most important features are intuitive, but the advanced features get pretty technical and intense.
I highly recommend this app, and many of my friends that I’ve sung the praises to already were using it on a daily (nightly?) basis.
Krs601 - Just Keeps Getting Better
I have been using this app over several editions and now watches 2 & 4, it just keeps getting better and better in terms of information and options for measurements. The sync between watch and phone are fabulous and you can have it in your watch face’s calculations section. You can spend a good deal of time drilling down into the information provided or view a simple take away synopsis from the sleep clock graphs, making this app a very individual oriented data partner in your health and well-being tool kit. Also, this app is not pitting you against the “average person” but is organized around your lifestyle. Depending on your inputs you can fine tune your sleep information and in turn your sleep habits. Thank you crew for your commitment to the health of your users and potential users.
StaticFriXion - Changed my Life...
Dramatic, I know, but true.
My story - (@ 27yrs) Shortly after I started to have heart palpitations and WITH medical guidance (very important). I bought this bundle which included the heart and sleep apps.
Within a few days, I had enough data using the sleep app to see what was going on. I was in massive sleep “debt”, and my heart was being impacted. For the little sleep I was getting, the app helped to show it was poor quality and almost no deep sleep. Without quality, deep sleep my entire body was in overdrive and that included my heart. The heart app showed similar trends of significantly high heart rate.
Results - Once I started to follow the sleep guidance, my heart immediately followed suit. I was getting more quality sleep, and my heart was able to rest. It’s been 1 week, since then I’ve dropped my caffeine intake dramatically. I drink for choice not energy. I start my day off at 6am versus I was a 8-10am riser, and I always wake up feeling more rested.
Validity - The amount of data in these apps is INSANE, and it was awesome it pulled in my historical heart data. Don’t be overwhelmed, take some time to learn it. Or just use what you want, and slowly grow into it. This is $3-$8 that has potential to change ones life. Hold one coffee, and buy this app. For me, it was more than worth it!
broyvt - LOVE this sleep app!
I have been using this sleep tracker for over a year, along with the heart rate app. This has significantly helped me develop better sleeping habits, such as a pre-bedtime routine of lowering my heart rate through meditation (reinforced by the heart rate app giving me real-time feedback), and using the Lights Out feature. Both of these habits have helped me get off my phone 15-20 minutes before Lights Out. I can really feel how my quantity of Deep Sleep impacts my energy the next day. I’ve also recognized the significant decline in my Deep Sleep when I have a second cocktail in the evening, making that less appealing. I’ve become very invested in getting good quality sleep, building up credit in my Sleep Bank. This app is a huge reason why I got the iWatch (because I have had insomnia my whole adulthood), and it is worth it!
Smprocks - By far the best!!
I purchased AutoWake, AutoSleep and the heart health bundle for an extremely fair price.
They track all sorts of information, and have been surprisingly accurate so far. I’m surprised at just how much value I’ve gotten from them.
The amount of graphs and analytics available is impressive and they allow you to go as in depth as you wish. If you want easy to read, quick glance options then the main page gives you the highlights. If your the type that likes to get in depth, and go further into the details then from the main page you can select any of the graphs or ‘circles’ that represent each aspect to go much further into detail.
I’ve gotten more info from these apps than any other apps available and at a much lower price. It’s definitely earned all the five stars I gave it!
chickwit07 - Great App, Needs Some Updates
I just recently talked myself into finally buying this app, and I’m not disappointed. It gives a really detailed breakdown of your sleep and is super easy to use. Just go to sleep and everything is ready to go when you wake up. My only issue with it is that it’s not able to be modified for someone who doesn’t work a normal, daytime work schedule. As someone who works second shift, there are features that I can’t really use correctly, such as Night Hour and Quiet Time. Since I don’t get home from work until nearly 2am, neither of them allow for the hour to be changed far enough for me to really utilize these features. It’s a fantastic app for people who work a day shift, but those of us who work night hours aren’t able to get the full benefit from it. If those features become more modifiable in the future, I’d happily give all five stars.
P388l3 - Wow.
I am amazed by the level of detail, and for the price of the app. I think another reviewer said this should be the standard built in Apple Watch functionality, and I agree, but only if these developers get the credit and payment for it. They deserve it. Not only does it have an immense amount of reporting for each night’s sleep (including an overlay of the heart rate and the sleep in various depths), averages over time, assessments of how quality the sleep was, a smart alarm to wake you when you’re in light sleep, and an estimated sleep debt/credit, it’s also SLICK. The user interface glides in really user appealing ways. Bravo.
The one thing I wish for on top of all of this is for complications on the watch - I can make shortcuts, but it would be neat to have a complication for lights off, or for the sleep app in general. Though I do appreciate that the shortcut for lights off and “how did I sleep?” are quick options inside the app!
Regardless, I’m beyond happy to have paid for this app, and that there is a Watch app to go with it, too.
Thank you for a splendid sleep app!
Edit: I incorrectly stated earlier that there weren’t complications for the watch. It turns out I just hadn’t found them. For some reason I had to edit my watch face on my phone to see it.
Dm4js - There’s a lot of good stuff, but
There’s so much going for this app. I’ve learned why I’m so tired all the time. When I think I’m sleeping, I’m really not as asleep as I may think or for as long as I think. It’s easy to set my watch to tell it I’m going to sleep, and it’s okay if I forget. The app senses it somehow.
But, to me, the graphs are somewhat confusing. I haven’t spent a whole lot of time studying them, and I’m sure people will say, “Oh, you’re just an uneducated person.” Actually, I’m quite well educated and teach for a living. But, as I said, I haven’t spent time sitting down to study the graphs, taken time to figure out the colors, etc. what I want is to be able to look and quickly understand the first time I go on an app. This isn’t like that. It will take a little time to figure it all out to utilize the information, but I’m sure it’s not too hard. I just haven’t done it yet.
SydneyTiffa - Only two stars because of what it once was
I’ve had major hiccups with this app for months now. It used to be pretty accurate, but now it’s simply hit or miss. I was told to make sure my watch is up to date after updating my iPhone, which took care of the inaccuracy for about a couple of weeks, but then it just goes back to either guessing what’s going on or just saying it was charging overnight when it wasn’t. I’ve removed the phone from being next to me on the bed to being on my nightstand thinking that would help with the readings and it doesn’t. I’ve unpaired/paired my watch to my phone hoping that would help reset it. But something I’m not doing is resetting my phone to factory settings just to see if that helps the app that should be working without such drastic measures being taken. It shouldn’t be this aggravating, but that’s what it’s turned into. I just wanted an app that could track my sleep with a decent amount of accuracy. In my experience, this app is not that.
orodhood - This app is great
This app has helped me understand my sleep.
If I get up and not feeling rested it shows me why.
I have continued to improve my sleep cycle since I got this app.
I never slept very well before I started tracking it, with auto sleep.
How it’s improved my sleep I am not sure.
But I have my goal and that must help.
I use the lights off feature.
I go to sleep faster and get more rested now.
It shows how long I was in bed and how long it takes me to fall asleep.
I lay done thinking about going to sleep instead of my day, that I had.
Or anything else that comes to mind.
Never could do that before.
Was always lucky to get 5 or 6 hours of sleep.
Now I am getting 7 to 8 of good quality sleep and 1 to 2 hrs of deep sleep.
I am 58 yrs old and I sleep better now than I ever did .
It’s worth every cent it cost to purchase. Get it, and you will understand your sleep more than you ever did before.
It’s very informative, with information about what studies have shown.
And where you are.
With your quality sleep, deep sleep and recharge rate.
Works excellent with my Apple Watch, that shows my sleeping heart rate. That’s continued to come down since I started using Auto Sleep.
The developers did an excellent job on this app.
Thanks to the developers you guys are geniuses.
For rough - Missing One Component
Overall, this appears to be a great app. A couple of things I have found though. Now, I have only had the app for a few days so far, so I may be missing some things. However, the sleep wizard only gives you a certain time period to set as “sleeping”. It from like 5:00PM to 9:00AM, or something similar. I work overnight, so I sleep from about 1:00 PM until 9:00 PM. It doesn’t appear to have an option for people who work wacky schedules. Also, just found out last night. I tried to use the “Lights Off” function, and it seems to have silenced my alarms on my phone, so I woke up for work a little late. I am still getting used to the functionality of the app, so I very well could me missing some components. If I am not, it would be helpful to add scheduling for people who sleep at different times of the day/night/different days of the week.
Speedy rooter - Best sleep tracker
I have paid for few sleep tracking apps... this is by far the best. Not having to tell an app that I’m about to go to sleep should be a required function of sleep trackers.... took a minor amount of tweaking the settings... but this app is spot on. I wake up often throughout the night, and sometimes work more than 24hrs straight... this app gets it all seamlessly.
NOTE: since these guys have done something amazing here, I wanted to make a suggestion that I’m sure they would be able to do... have an alarm function function that would wake you within 15 min of your set time at a point in your sleep cycle that would help you feel more rested.... say as your heart rate fluctuates, it rises as you wake up naturally... it could detect that and start the alarm before it plateaus and goes back down...
JMackBND - Mindless sleep tracking
This is the best sleep tracking app for Apple Watch by far. I’ve been using it heavily since shortly after its release and it just keeps getting better. Most sleep tracking apps for the Watch have the user take action to start and stop tracking sleep. With AutoSleep, though, all you do is wear your watch to bed - you never have to think about it - and it tracks your sleep automatically. Very accurately. Version 5.0 that was just released is a big leap forward - allowing the Watch app to track sleep independently of the iPhone when necessary. It’s like this app adds an entire feature to the Apple Watch that it doesn’t ship with. Give it a try! Also check out the developer’s companion app, HeartWatch, which gives you a much deeper look at the heart-rate data your Watch collects.
Jeanne the math prof - I threw away my Fitbit!
I bought this app two months ago when I bought my Apple Watch. I had been a religious Fitbit user for five years, and was disappointed that the Apple Watch didn’t come with a sleep function. I researched all the sleep app reviews, and Auto Sleep was the clear winner. I wore them both to bed at first, but Auto Sleep gave so much more detail, I could hardly believe it! (Full disclosure: I am a retired scientist, so I am in heaven with all the graphs.) Also, I can charge up my Apple Watch fully in an hour during my morning coffee (so nice to be retired!) and top it off for a half hour just before bed, so battery life has been no problem whatsoever. (Also got my sister an Apple Watch for her birthday last week, and loaded Auto Sleep onto it right away. She’s loving it, too, and she’s not a scientist...)
nursemissy - Simply Amazing!
Love this app. I tried several different apps with and without wearing the watch. I settled on this app and I wear my watch to bed. No issues with my watch staying charged. I take it off while getting ready for bed (30 min skincare routine) then I put it back on for bed. Same thing for the morning while showering etc and it lasts all day and thru a 45 min daily cycle class with continuous monitoring. This app is giving me valuable info about my sleep quality. When I started tracking my sleep I was getting 0 deep sleep. ZERO!! Now, after a little research and changing some bedtime habits, adopting a new bedtime routine, I’m getting some deep sleep!! Last night I got 1 hour and 37 min of deep sleep. But this app does so much more! It’s really a great app. I’m considering adding the heart watch portion of it also.
JBReho - My Favorite Watch App!
Of all the apps on my Apple Watch, this is my favorite and the one I find the most valuable. It has provided me with so much insight into my sleep patterns, and how my behaviors throughout the day affect the quality of my sleep, and ultimately how I feel and perform the next day. I’ve become a bit obsessed with trying to achieve the best possible night’s sleep though. And when I wake up each morning, I am so eager to turn on the app and see how I slept. But be warned, sometimes ignorance is bliss. I’ve always assumed that drinking alcohol or caffeine (or eating sugary foods) before bed will result in poor sleep. But now I have empirical proof of it. This app has changed my behaviors, I think for the better. But if you’d prefer to be in blissful ignorance about how your behaviors affect your sleep, don’t use this app.
njacobs88 - Used to love it
This was the best sleep tracking app until the iOS 14 update, now all of a sudden the sleep tracking is completely off. I’ll sleep for 8 hrs and for some reason I only get 2-3 hrs reported with it saying I was awake most of the night which was not the case and doesn’t correspond with what apples new sleep tracking in the health app shows. I tried adjusting the sleep tracking using the +/- section on the app with no help and now after doing that I’m getting an error message. I deleted and re downloaded the app hoping that will help otherwise I will no longer be able to use this. Please help! Will update if the problem gets fixed.
UPDATE: after restoring both my Apple Watch and iPhone the app is back to working as usual and back to being my favorite health app!
Bikelink - Beyond an app, part of my life
Sleep is a challenge for me and a lot of people along w the Apple Watch this app has become indispensable to tracking how I’m doing and holding myself accountable to getting to bed at a reasonable time. You think you’re doh good ok but don’t feel as good sure enough average sleep down. And eatcchinbg the deep sleeep double as your catching up then plateau as your average approaches where it should be, knowing what sleeping heart rate and wake heart rate is it really correlates well with my sleep quality and improved when I get regular exercise. I also use it ENTJ heart watch and look at the health app. Finally whenever I’ve had any questions they are extremely responsive not to mention have tons of faqs and info. This is the best app I tried a bunch and now have been using it for years.
jcarb - Helped with my wife’s irregular sleep schedule
Man, I could write a novel about how my wife’s sleep patterns have affected us in one way or another. She gets “demonic hell witch” angry if she’s woken up before 8 hours and it makes for a bad day. Then, there are times where she can’t get to sleep and ends up getting 6 hours or less but has to go to work. It just ruins her whole day. I can survive if I get little sleep and not be cranky. She is not the same.
This app has not only helped regulate our sleep hours, bedtimes, and wake ups - it’s helped us see our sleep patterns and notice changes that we should make to our lives. I’m very thankful for it. I don’t write reviews often because I’m a naturally lazy person and these are in no way obligatory, but the app developers for AutoSleep deserve it. Great job, everyone!
ORHobbes - Snore recording is the only thing missing
After going through 5 different sleep apps, this is the one I stuck with.
It tracks automatically (as long as you wear your watch to sleep), so you don’t have to remember to start a recording each night like others.
I also love that this is one of the only apps that lets you edit individual time intervals from recorded sleep sessions. Others only let you edit start and stop times. This keeps the reports more accurate.
It’s not perfect though.
I really wish they would add audio recording capabilities to the phone version of the app, so that the Watch records your sleep quality, movements, and heart rate, and the phone app records short audio clips if it detects snoring, etc.
Pillow does this, and it’s the one feature I miss in AutoSleep. So I keep switching back and forth when I want to hear audio clips.
Also, the reports could use some beefing up for viewing trends over time. (ie, how your sleep quality went up or down based on heart rate or exercise each month)
Or which days of the week you usually have the best/worst sleep.
The raw data is there, but you have to parse it out yourself right now to figure those things out.
If they ever add better reports and audio clips, I would never use anything else.
everkleer - It’s auto magic
Love this, brilliant idea! The watch already tracks your movement and heart rate all day, so rather than having an extra app on the watch to eat battery, this is just an app on your phone that syncs with the Health data that the watch records. All you do is wear the watch to bed and it automatically tracks everything. It’s not always perfect (but then I doubt any consumer grade sleep tracking product will be) but after you sleep you can view it in the app and easily adjust the calibration/sensitivity and also manually mark periods where you were/were not sleeping. And if you do want to add a little manual step to see how long it took you to fall asleep, it has a “lights out” feature for that too - the feature can also tie to HomeKit to actually turn lights out.
mlpsindie - Best sleep app?
I remember when I first started using this app and it has drastically improved since that version. When I looked for a decent sleep app a couple years ago, there really wasn’t anything that great but this app has improved to the point where I can see that it’s accurate when I have a sleepless night or I wake up at 3am and can’t fall back asleep. I don’t believe his is accurate down to the minute but I 100% believe it’s still valuable. You can go through a week and see which nights you slept terrible and which nights you slept well. The automation works really well. I highly recommend this app and I have never used a better sleep. I love that they continue to improve the app. The support is really obvious and the end product reflects the efforts of the developer.
ThespisTx - The best sleep tracker for an Apple Watch.
This is the best sleep tracker for an Apple Watch. Before my Apple Watch I used a different activity tracker. It tracked my sleep so well, so when I went to an Apple Watch I still wanted to track my sleep. I tried several apps, but most only tracked when I turned them on, and when I turned them off. This app tracks quality of sleep, heart rate, and restlessness. It’s very detailed and very accurate. I’m not sure it’s as accurate as my previous tracker, but it’s the best I’ve had on my Apple Watch. I was also presently surprised to find it won’t drain your batter any faster than average. I simply charge my Watch in the hour or two before bed and then wear it to sleep. The only feature this app lacks is an alarm clock. It be nice to have it wake me based on my sleep cycle.
Mason'sMommy - Way too complicated
This app is entirely too complicated. I initially downloaded it bc it was the only paid sleep app so I assumed it was the best. The first night, I wore my watch to bed only to wake up with no data. Went through the steps again to make sure I had the settings right and tried again the second night- same problem, no data. Messaged them and went through their steps which did finally fix the problem. Now it tracks my sleep but it is so unbelievably complicated, I don’t even know what I am looking at. I have sat there and clicked on everything to try and read and understand and I just can’t. Even though all I really want to know is how many hours I slept and what times I woke up or slept lighter, I can’t even find that! I can’t even find the simple number of how many hours I slept last night. You have to be a rocket scientist to read this app. Way to much. There’s no graph with a simple view like my old Fitbit had. It’s totally not worth it and I’ll be trying to get a refund. DO NOT RECOMMEND
Rin Akane - Set it and forget it
A lot of sleep tracker apps have the problem of requiring you to manually activate them then keep them running during sleep on a plugged in phone, which is not the most convenient setup (I go to sleep with music running on a sleep timer, and these sorts of apps interfere with that). Then you might wake up, end the app, only to fall back asleep, so your sleep records aren't accurate.
This app does require an Apple Watch, and that you wear it to bed, but once you set it up, there's no need to manually activate or deactivate it! (Other than an optional toggle for tracking time before sleep) And the analysis is nice and detailed, providing me plenty of insights, even environmental noise levels (I sleep with air conditioning in during the summer, so I can be reassured I'm not harming my ears).
Pat Marshall - Saved my life!
I am obesely overweight and I needed to start an exercise regime or else. Well I chose to exercise. Thank God I did! I am an Apple guru, I have or have had just about every Apple product there is. So here I am with all of this TOP OF THE LINE, first class merchandise and not taking advantage of what I have in my Hands. I begin to utilize the watch and my phone together. Started an exercise platform walking daily (at least 2 mi daily) for beginners. Working my way back up to 5 mi. I love getting the badges, seeing the graphs, comparisons, seeing how the phone and watch captures every single detail of the workout showing one exactly where they are and when they started/ended, cool down periods and so so so much more! There are many heart apps out there but I personally LOVE the HeartWatch app by Apple iPhone.
OneUniverse - Tried it for a year..
It gets 2 stars because I enjoy most of the status reports. However, 3 times/week, it could not find my data. This was really frustrating. I am a care provider working over 60hrs/wk, so regular sleep is vital. Tracking it helps me stay on track.
This app’s support people, consistently blamed their problems on me and my device. After the third day in a row of being asked “did I wear my watch to bed?” 🤦♀️ , I finally tried a new app (called SleepWatch). And not to sing the praises of an app that I just installed a few minutes ago, but it is an impressive difference by comparison. As soon as I set up my new account, it read my data ..including my two previous days! The data this old app, insisted I did not collect. Told y’all I was wearing my watch!😏 I am always wearing my watch!!😜
Ok, so There is something seriously flawed about this app🤔. Its too bad, I absolutely loved all of the reports and layout..except that “readiness score..lame “. I’m not trying to be harsh, but I reached out for a year trying to fix their problems, until I decided to no longer let it be my problem.
I would not suggest wasting your time with this app, (til it’s fixed). When the app is deleted, so is all the history; including all the reports one takes the time to edit manually. It’s really cool ..when it works. It was not worth losing all my history. Good luck & sleep tight!
alimjomar - Unusable and very unfriendly
I would like to first state that I am in the tech field. I consider myself very savvy in figuring out how things work. Upon installing and attempting to use this nightmare of an app has been an ordeal. The initial moment I downloaded this app, the app showed an error. I followed all the recommendations that have been provided to us by the vendor with no viable resolution. I even uninstalled and reinstalled with no change from previous cause.
I have emailed the company with no real solution other than what I had already done per their recommendations from their help menu. I WISH I COULD GIVE THIS COMPANY NEGATIVE POINTS because that’s what they deserve. Whoever created this app must have been on something because the navigation of this app and the usability is obsurd. I honestly think the entire folks there must be on something. I would not mind if the app is considered complex, but at least make sure it does and work as it should. You all should see the amount of instructions on each menu just to figure out what in the world is going on.
My word of advice, please stop and put down whatever you all are on and regroup in redesigning this app. If that’s not a viable option then simply quit and get out of sleep apps world.
I’ve never given a review in my entire life about an app even the awful ones but this one wins it all as the worst of the worst of the worst. Please do not waste your time or money on this app.
OG_KingCole - Great way to see quality of sleep!
This app is great, if you sleep with the Apple Watch on. It gives you accurate results of your sleep patterns. You’ll be able to see how much deep sleep and how much disruptive sleep you get. If you have TATTOOS, this app, or actually the Apple Watch will have problems getting readings. It took me some time to realize why it wasn’t recording my sleep some nights, but my left arm is covered in tattoos up to my hand, and because of that it wouldn’t track my sleep. Switched it to my right, and it’s been tracking flawlessly. So if you have tattoos just keep in mind the Apple Watch may have issues not the app. I love this app and being able to see how much or how little sleep I’m actually getting. It’s awesome! 10/10 would recommend.
Bladernr67 - Great Until It was Worthless
I’ve been using the app for several months and found the data it was providing extremely useful until I fell ill. While I was sick I wound up not wearing my Apple Watch for several days, so obviously no sleep data was being recorded at this time.
When I was well enough and returned to regular use of my watch all of my apps picked up gathering data without any issues. All of them ... except this one. It appears that any break in the data is a barrier the app is incapable of dealing with. And, in the event that the developer actually reads this the answer is yes...I tried ALL of your recommended fixes and NONE of them worked. And no...I am not going to trash my current data and re-pair my watch as a new device just because a single app has decided to take a dump.
Admittedly I really really enjoyed this app while it worked. If you’re looking to pick this app just don’t ever plan to remove your watch from your wrist longer than a few hours if you want it to keep working.
D_ApOwen - The Perfect Communication Tool!
I have had sleep problems for years. Other than sleep studies and regular doctor visits, I have never had real data to help my doctor help me. Now, during my appointments I show the data collected with AutoSleep to my doctor and he raves over how helpful it is in helping me and the results are AMAZING! The use of the app is as easy as installing it on my iPhone and Apple Watch then with my watch on I go to sleep. When I wake up, I open the AutoSleep app and everything I expect about my night’s sleep and more is presented to me.
I recommend this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️+⭐️ application for anyone and everyone who is serious about accurate, simple to collect personal sleep related data. This app is a great example of well researched, designed and implemented personal health software.
Southern belle christy - Automatically tracks sleep quality, including deep sleep
This app has been awesome. It is definitely one of the top 5 useful apps I use on my watch, and I have ALOT of favorites. It automatically tracks when you fall asleep and wake up using several different censor inputs; such as microphone, movement, phone movement, heart rate bpm. It tracks your sleep length, quality of sleep, heart rate, what times you went into deep sleep, etc. easy to read graphs, times, percentages, short descriptions, but also includes links to more lengthy stuff if you need know more. Bought this in their 3-pack for a one time fee of $6.99, and feel like I got a steal. Don’t waste your money on the subscription based apps, where you’ll end up shelling out $30+ per year, and aren’t even as good. Love this app!
EWB MLC - Love, love, love this app!
I’m addicted to using this app. I’ve struggled with insomnia for years, and especially with getting a bare minimum of 6 hours of sleep a night. I tried several other sleep tracking apps, from FitBit one, to iPhone ones to iWatch ones, and this one is hands down the absolute best. So many views into the data that it captures from the sensors! I feel like it gives the most accurate picture of restless, light, and deep sleep (because I wear my watch to sleep), and it teaches me better sleep habits by way of the data. I’ve also written to the developer numerous times to understand how to best use and configure the app, and he promptly and patiently responds to my questions or suggestions. I’ve never written a review for an app before, so that’s how much I love this app!
Karengj - Sleep Time Accuracy is Amazing!
V6 rating: Previously rated Autosleep 5-Star, for its simplicity and accuracy. However, since the latest V6 update, the simplicity and sleep accuracy is now gone! I really doubt that the quality of my sleep is now totally different, and changed overnight since the V6 update. Hate the V6 update, and am no longer willing to let Autosleep drain 20+ % of my Apple Watch 4 battery each night! Much too complex, now, for us simple folks!
V5 rating: Auto Sleep automatically detects when I fall asleep and wake up, while wearing my Apple Watch 4. It is amazing that it automatically records when I doze off and wake up during a brief daytime nap, as well as nighttime sleep, without having to manually open/close any of the watch apps. Plus, the summary analyses and graphs are very easy to understand. By far, the best app I actually had to pay only a onetime couple of bucks to upgrade a free app (HeartWatch). Well worth the additional cost for the “automatic” features if you have the Apple Watch and HeartWatch app.
ibbecca69 - Best sleep app I’ve ever used!
Amazing how accurate this tracker seems to be. I watch a lot of tv before going to sleep so most apps will detect that lack of movement as sleep but not this app. It blows my mind how it can tell the difference between watching tv and sleeping. It also seems spot-on for detecting how often I get up to use the bathroom throughout the night. My favorite fun feature is the battery charged indicator. The other night I had insomnia and slept 2 hrs and it said my body’s battery only charged 34%. That was so accurate - by lunchtime I definitely felt my body’s battery was running on “low power” mode. LOL. Speaking of battery, I was worried it would drain the Watch battery and it does not. This is BY FAR my favorite Apple Watch app! It should be on everyone’s app list!!!!!!
jasg319 - Accurate app but could be improved
I was pleased when app added the “sleep stages” graph as the first page. I also like the overlay of heart rate over the sleep stage graph. Editing by selection of best pattern that matches actual sleep (after selection of clock mode) is an excellent approach to editing. However, I think sleep history can be presented more usefully by stacking at least the previous 7 days of sleep stages graph on top of one another as is done by Fitbit, Garmin, and Polar. This provides the most intuitive way of seeing in a general how the sleep pattern (stages) is changing dat-to-day. The examples of upcoming Apple’s native sleep app in WatchOS 7 seem to show a too simplistic approach to sleep monitoring, stressing mostly on capturing the beginning and end of sleep. This suggests that 3rd party apps will continue to be valuable to Apple Watch users.
