Use your Apple Watch to AUTOMATICALLY track your sleep!
Sleep++ takes advantage of the motion and health monitoring capabilities of your Apple Watch to measure both the duration and quality of your sleep. The better you understand how well you are sleeping the more you are able to make changes in your routines to benefit your rest.
My goal is to provide every Apple Watch owner with a free automatic sleep tracker that is simple and clear to understand. For each night you get a straightforward report of how long you slept and how restful you were during the night.
Simply wear your Apple Watch overnight and each morning Sleep++ will analyze your sleep and give you a report about how long and restfully you slept.
If you want to have more precise control over the start/end time of each night recorded you can also use manual sleep tracking. This is also useful if your nightly routine makes it difficult for Sleep++ to determine when you went to bed.
1) Wear your Apple Watch while you sleep.
2) Tell Sleep++ when you start sleeping.
3) Tell Sleep++ when you wake up.
Sleep++ integrates with the Health App providing you a safe and private way to share your activity data with Sleep++. This data is used for automatic sleep tracking. You can also optionally have Sleep++ save your Sleep Analysis into your Health database after each night.

Ratings and Reviews
So far, so good.
As my review title suggest, I have no complaints. it does and performs exactly as designed. i will say that the app is a little confusing to use it, as the guide is very basic and broad. the app can be hard to read and understand compared to other apps, but then i remember this is free. the UI is nice, but you have to understand greatly what your sleeping pattern means by constantly referring to the settings section.
there is an option to manually add a sleep schedule, but it should be automated all the time, as the automated feature only works when the user wears an apple watch. the app should be able to read phone activity as well, like the default app can do - and does even without the use of an apple watch.
also, there should be a heartbeat feature implemented into the sleep analysis, more or less as another “fun, yet informative” feature so that users can see how their heartbeat changed over there sleep period, but also to see if their heartbeat measurement is within normal standards.
Seems Pretty Good
The app is nice and simple, and it seems to be fairly accurate. Obviously it’s not perfect due to limitations of what data is available from the watch, but it’s good enough that I can track when I fell asleep, how quickly I fell asleep, and how long I slept accurately enough to see how more/better sleep impacts my day in other ways, which is really all I wanted. I think a majority of the low-star reviews come from a lack of understanding about what information the app can really check.
To be fair, there are some things that feel a bit lacking, like when you view a past night on the iPhone app, it feels like you should be able to slide your finger along the night overview to see what specific time things happened. I’ve been working around that by clicking trim, moving the start/end to the event I want to check, checking the new start/end time, and then moving the trim bar back to the original start/end. Another example is that there’s no way to quickly view the legend from within a night (without backing out and going to settings), but that’s only really useful the first time you use the app.
So it’s not perfect (what is), but I’d take the clean interface and lack of general annoyances in this app over anything else alternative apps might offer.
Great Concept Poor Execution
I used this app on my Series 2 Watch for the 2nd time & it is not consistently recognizing when I wake up, get out of bed, walk to my bathroom, to the kitchen for water & back to bed, etc.
It actually shows that I am restfully asleep during 2 of the 5 events from last night, and shows I'm only restless on 2 other occurrences that I went to the kitchen after using the bathroom. In fact I was still awake for about 2 hours after I hit start sleeping as I watched a movie while in bed & it shows that I was restfully asleep & stayed asleep or over an hour immediately after hitting the start sleeping button. That's not even possible when I was still awake & fidgeting & watching a movie!
I can't believe that I can rely on this app to be accurate in its assessment of me having a 15% rate of restlessness. Also I hate that it doesn't automatically track your sleep start & stop times but I guess that isn't possible when it can't seem to do much except track how long you are in bed, when & if I remember to hit the stop/start buttons. Wish this app/watch combo was even slightly as accurate as my old FitBit Charge HR or my even older FitBit Flex! Time to find a better sleep app that takes full advantage of the watch's heart rate tracking and other functionalities or better yet for Apple to add this & the analysis of the data it already collects as part of its health kit.
