AutoWake. Smart Sleep Alarm 4+
Haptic Alarm for Watch
AutoWake is the first haptic smart alarm for your Watch.
It can wake you up by tapping you on your wrist using your Watch's haptic engine. You can set it to wake you if you are in light or medium sleep either 15 or 30 minutes before your set alarm time. This helps you feel more refreshed.
There's an optional sleep cycle buster that you can turn on to give you a light tap at 5 minute intervals in a 15 or 30 minute window before your alarm to take you gently out of deeper sleep.
Not only that but it will even automatically measure your waking pulse just before the alarm sounds, which is a valuable measurement of recovery.
If you ignore the alarm on the Watch, you can also set a safety alarm that will play on your phone. This will speak and/or play a chosen song from your music library.
There's also auto scheduled alarms in case you forget to set your alarm before bed.
If you use AutoSleep our auto sleep tracker, you can use the new ultra smart alarm features. You can now be woken up after a desired amount of sleep, quality sleep or when your sleep bank is back in credit. You can use this in conjunction with a latest wake time if required. You can even set a bedtime reminder that looks at your required sleep, sleep efficiency and latest wake time to give you a reminder for the optimal time to go to bed.
When you turn on your alarm, it can automatically tell AutoSleep that you have gone to bed so that time to fall asleep can be tracked.
If you use Apple HomeKit then you can run scenes for key events in AutoWake like turning off your bedside lamp and setting your room temperature for sleep.
AutoWake requires an Apple Watch running WatchOS 4 or higher. Advanced features requires WatchOS 5.
AutoWake works fine with Do Not Disturb and Theatre/Cinema mode.
AutoWake requires at least a bluetooth connection between your iPhone and your Apple Watch during the time that you are asleep. You can use Flight Mode on your iPhone, but make sure that you turn on bluetooth.
If you user Screen Time, make sure that AutoWake is in your exclude list.
As with all of our apps, there is no tracking, no analytics, no snooping. Your privacy is very important.
Here's AutoWake 3. It's a big update!
- All alarms are now set directly on the Apple Watch in a rather tasty new way.
- If you use AutoSleep & have WatchOS 5 you can now set advanced ultra smart alarms. These allow you to set a sleep goal, quality goal or sleep bank goal. AutoWake can then do things like set an alarm every Friday after you achieve 8 hours sleep but no later than 7:30AM with an intelligent reminder 60 minutes before the best time to go to bed. Ultra smart alarms can help you hit your sleep goal as well as to prevent oversleeping.
- Scheduled backup alarms are now both more flexible and more straightforward.
- iPhone app is greatly simplified.
- Support for every Infograph complication format on the Series 4 Watch.
- Smartwake options now include "bump" only. This will tap you every 5 minutes before your final alarm time to take you out of deeper sleep.
- You can now change the voice to use for confirmations and safety alarms.
Hope you like it! Pleasant dreams.
Ratings and Reviews
Great under the ‘right’ conditions
This suite of apps works great for tracking sleep, however the biggest flaw when using AutoWake occurs when you change time zones. I frequently travel for work and find that once you switch the watch out of flight mode, the alarm time that you select is stuck in the original time zone from which you departed. E.g if you select 7am for your alarm in the new time zone it reflects as 10am on the AutoWake home screen. This happens even if you close and reopen the app.
If there was a workaround my rating would be much higher - as it stands the only fix is to power the Apple Watch off and then on again.
Good but only in certain circumstances
AutoWake is quite a solid alarm app for Watch. You can schedule alarms on it, and alarm vibrations can be customized! I love the gentle alarms as I find the default Watch alarms are a bit too strong for my taste.
It has a few issues however. Due to it requiring a connection with a phone via the complication, alarms do not always go off and I’ve noticed can go off several minutes later than the set time. It’s just not that reliable, although 95% of the time it works fine. In addition, alarms only vibrate for a short period so it’s very easy to fall back asleep after the alarm goes off. For this reason I only use AutoWake as a secondary alarm 5 minutes before my main alarm goes off.
AutoWake feels much more like a companion app to the (generally) superior AutoSleep app. I use AutoSleep for my primary alarm, and in combination with an automation that turns on Water Lock on wake-up + an additional back-up alarm on my phone, it successfully gets me out of bed.
My recommendation: do not buy this app individually, only buy it as part of a bundle.
The best way to wake up!!
Long time user of this app as well as AutoSleep since I got my Apple Watch 3 yrs ago. I’ve been using it up until 15.4 when an apple bug broke the app. However with 15.5 it’s back at it best!! The way it knows how to wake you is great and make sure you never feel like your waken from deep sleep.
Highly recommend using this if you want reliability and good way to wake in the morning. Pair it with AutoSleep then you get great sleep tracking and all secured on your device no third parties getting your info like other sleep apps.
