Ratings and Reviews
It works for the automatic sleep tracking, however, it will only upload the data if i open the app on my phone and watch. Even then i have to close both and reopen them both a second time before it will sync. The problem with that is i will forget to sync it. Which is an issue because today my watch somehow got locked while i wasnt wearing it and it had me unpair and set up my watch again. It said my data was all saved for my watch from the same day so i was like cool! Lucky. Only to find out it did not save my sleep data that i was going to sync. Now im missing about 2-3 days worth of data. Otherwise I normally dont have any complaints or problems. I usually will adjust the time if it thinks i was asleep or awake at times where i wasnt. Not too bad
I used Sleep++ for awhile before the automated feature became available. While it was novel, after a few weeks I started forgetting to set it before bed, and soon after deleted it from my phone and watch. What a difference a year has made! The watch app automatically starts sleep tracking now and it’s quite accurate (my husband is a light sleeper and almost always concurs with Sleep++’s opinion of when I was restless during the night). It integrates with Apple’s health app/platform (I can’t stand apps that want to silo their data away- looking at you FitBit!) so that sleep and activity data is centrally stored and available for review. The sleep quality updates you get on the watch 10-15 minutes after getting up are perfectly timed and really informative. I take off my watch (series 1 - don’t need to track my swim laps or pay for another cell plan, thank you) in the evening when I make dinner and take a shower. Slip it on before bed and it’ll make it through the night and next day with around 40 percent charge left (and I interact frequently with the watch during the day). One day, Apple is going to integrate sleep tracking into watchOS and when they do, I hope they just buy Sleep++ from the developer- it’s so simple, automatic, accurate and integrated into Apple’s health platform that there’s nothing to improve!
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.
