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
Seems great but not quite
This really seemed like the best solution for a smart sleep alarm for the watch but there’s a significant amount of bugs.
For starters, I’ve had a few times where the alarm is active but won’t even go off. As I’m writing this I have an alarm that was supposed to go off 30 minutes ago and it’s just counting the time since it was supposed to activate. Additionally, if your phone isn’t nearby and charged, it also appears to be impossible to turn the alarm off which makes the watch app kind of pointless. And the last thing which is super minor is that the normal way to “stop” the alarm isn’t available unless you wake up right at the alarm time, so if you wake up earlier you actually have to deactivate the alarm which means that every night you have to reactivate it again.
I’m still giving 3 stars because as a developer I know these are easy fixes and I still like the design and everything, but it’s just not fully there yet
A must have with HeartWatch and AutoSleep
Yes, the 3 apps in this bundle seem overwhelming at first install and have a learning curve (and I generally take longer than others to figure things out). However, all 3 are beyond worth the effort, and I found myself using them like a pro in a few days. This app in particular has been fantastic, and this coming from someone who was a chronic snooze button abuser... literally setting my alarm for an hour before I had to get up so I can do an hour of snooze buttons before exiting the bed for the past 10 years at least! Now, I set my alarm for the time I need to be up, get the taps on the wrist 3 times in 5 minute intervals prior to the actual wake up time, and am feeling ready to get out of bed on time the first time the “alarm” goes off. The best part, is that all of this is silent and doesn’t disturb my sleeping wife at all (and you can be sure she had NOT been a fan of my previous morning ritual! I honestly believe those who didn’t 5 star this app were too impatient to give it a full try. It integrates well and works flawlessly. In my opinion, this app alone makes my Apple Watch a must have... I’d give up my phone first!
Worth the effort!
This app has some really smart features that I didn’t anticipate when I decided to buy it along with AutoSleep and HeartWatch. All three work together in a sense so, “why not?” I thought. When I got around to start using it, I was pleasantly surprised at how you can choose to have it wake you within a set time period, 15 minutes for example, prior to your alarm time setting if you’re in a light sleep or medium sleep stage, again, your choice of which one. You can have the watch give you a “nudge” or a “tickle” and after a preview, decide if it’s something you want to use or not. You do have to put in some effort to review and possibly tweak the settings each night as well as confirm the alarm has been set but it’s a quick and easy process. I haven’t had any issues with changing alarm times or settings one day to the next so maybe there’s been an update from when another reviewer mentioned those problems...? I have narcolepsy and the features mentioned earlier are great to try out for someone like myself who has to pay close attention to not only consistency with my sleep but also with my wake schedule.
