I have used this app for a couple of weeks in parallel to other sleep apps. I was excited about it! However, it showed significant inconsistencies recording deep sleep and HRV (heart rate variability) which count towards the readiness index. This index was almost always opposite to what the other submetrics were showing (almost every time I was on red with sleep quality, deep sleep, heart dips etc., the readiness index was on green or close to rather than the other way around). After going through their FAQs which seemed to support the fact that errors have been reported about these issues, I made sure to reach out to their customer service as a sign of respect for their product. I followed their guidance to lower my deep sleep setting (even though it contradicted their HRV indicator of the past few nights - I use Breathe in the morning to accurately report that metric) and it still didn’t read it. Meanwhile, the metrics on two other apps (SleepWatch and Sleep Cycle) yielded similar metrics compared to AutoSleep. When I emailed the AutoSleep customer service and requested a refund out of concern that the app was not running well, their response was that the app works and that it is designed for “tech savvy” customers. Not only was that condescending but highly inaccurate in my case. Maybe it works for others but, in my case, I’m choosing to go with other apps at this point.
This app does about as much as it can with the tools available. The data available to me is almost staggeringly high. I really really enjoy it and I have a much better grasp of the habits I have that help and hurt my ability to get quality sleep.
The problems I have are as follows:
1) I’m stupid and need more tutorial help. I want help icons to be available all the time so I don’t have to remember tips and tricks. I want the app to walk me through reading the data on command.
2) there isn’t as robust of a diary or comments section as I would like. For example, there’s not a great way for me to indicate if I had caffeine late to finish a project at work. If it connected to more apps (eg my fitness pal) I could easily cross reference eating habits with sleep score on one app. As it is I need to put in a little more legwork myself, not a huge deal but it would be awesome if this app could put up a graph of sleep times/quality/etc overtop of the times and types of meals/beverages I ate. That would make it incredibly easy to notice trends/habits that negatively influence my sleeping.
Overall fantastic app. There are not really any drawbacks just some small areas for improvement. The only reasons it deserves 4 stars is the lack of connectivity with other apps.
Love this app, always hated having to program when I wanted to sleep, this thing accurately senses when I’m asleep and learns my behaviors.
Many years ago I fell asleep at the wheel driving and totaled my car, had this app existed back then it would have likely paid for itself ~300x, thankfully I can now accurately gauge if I’m rested enough to work safely prioritizing wellness over income.
The only thing that could make this better is if there was a voluntary notification for when the app knows we are awake (we take x amount of steps) and it warns us that we are likely to be drowsy (thus being a perfect take a nap indicator)
For the first time I noticed it attempted to log me asleep for 30 minutes when I know for a fact I was simply sitting at my desk (because I soon after went to sleep). If the app would have been capable of kindly letting me know my body was very likely to be tired that is the only possible thing that can make this 4.7 app be the perfect sleep app. But even as is I would recommend it to anyone suffering sleep irregularities; it will guide you tremendously.
Even after iOS 14’s update, there is simply not another app out there that does what AutoSleep does
-Detailed graphs and charts for sleep amount, quality, and so on.
-Integration with Heart Rate data to cross connect the data.
-Set and forget. Once your settings are configured, never worry about notifying the app when you are asleep.
This is going to sound broken (because I am), but I’ve used this app so long and believe in it so much, I’ve actually asked if there was an optional tip coming. They continue to amaze with this app, and I am grateful they have not switched to a subscription model.
Try AutoSleep. I believe you will not be disappointed in the app. How much you’re actually sleeping maybe, but not the app.
Before the Apple Watch I used Sleep Cycle for years and have thousands of hours of data, but since I’ve been on the Watch with Auto Sleep (about three months) I’m getting a different picture. I’m usually a fast sleeper and am gone within minutes but the phone only App always puts “Sleep After” at 30 minutes or more. I usually get up twice in the night at roughly the same time but the graph made by Sleep Cycle never seems to accurately show time I’m Awake, Asleep or in Deep Sleep. I’m really liking the presentation of data better as well. So far I’m as happy with this App as I am for the watch!
I moved from Fitbit to Apple Watch in the last 4 months. Fitbit had great sleep reporting. This app does a very good job proving even more details regarding sleep. Quality of sleep with time spent in different areas of sleep. The O2 report is huge! Seeing that, you can see if snoring is having an impact on your O2 levels. Also heart report for the night. I can see how exercise and diet have an impact on that as well. My one complaint, if you’re take 15 power nap, it doesn’t seem to pick up on those moments of sleep, which for me are very impactful. I hope updates will allow for that.
I am new to this and owning an Apple Watch to track my sleep so I wanted something easy peasy. I downloaded several sleep apps. Some didn’t work automatically, some just gave a very basic overview, not even very correct. This one works like a dream. It has too much data to choose from but once you get used to it you will know where to quickly look for what matters to you right now and have the rest to learn about at your leasure, learning more and more about your sleep and how to make it even better. Excellent app, there is no other that’s easier to use and get started on.
I used to love this app. Great suite of features and great sleep tracking. After the release of iOS 14 you will now intermittently receive an error and not be able to view your sleep data on various nights. The app developers are aware of this issue and give a garbage process to fix the issue that doesn’t work. For a paid app the developers should be searching for the correct way to fix their app, not give a workaround process their customers have to go through. Until this issue is corrected, I suggest you find a different app to use.
Auto sleep provides the data I wanted to get about my sleep quality. I recently finished reading Matthew Whitaker‘s book, Sleep, and was motivated to discover the amount of deep sleep I was getting each night.
The app is easy to use and the data is very clear. The detailed history is also accessible.
A morning readiness score uses HRV and heartbeat to rate your efficiency upon waking, which is also helpful.
This is a great app and I recommend it to anyone interested in recording sleep data.
it’s ok at tracking, i normally go to bed 10:30-11pm and wake up at 5-6am depending on the day, check my app to see how i slept. Depending on what the app tells me and how i feel i’ll go workout, but after my workout i’ll check my app and the stats will change. then when i’m making breakfast my stats will change again. I use this to determine how hard i can workout and how to recover properly. itd be nice if it could be more accurate. i’ve tried calibrating it but none of them work .
