I have always had a great difficulty when it comes to sleep, as I have had insomnia for most of my entire life. This app, being free especially, is amazing, and it contains SO much awesome, helpful, accurate and specific info and data, which is fascinating to look at too! It’s great, I’ve managed to adjust my sleep cycles based on what data comes from the last night of sleep I’ve just had, and because it allows one to look back through the history of ANY day’s data, it feels almost like a biofeedback device but one that can do so much more than just track breathing. It’s very interesting to check all the stats of a particular sleep session, and I’ve found many answers as to why I have the specific issues I have, when I try to or am asleep. I think it’s great AutoSleep even includes the decibel level throughout the entire course of the sleep cycle. I honestly have downloaded and tried SO MANY different health apps, but this one is the only one I truly can say I LOVE and actually use, let alone ENJOY using!
I agree though, that this app and the features it contains should be a built-in out-of-the-box feature for Apple Watch, and one thing I wouldn’t mind would be for the developers to maybe further flesh out the iPhone version of the app. I hate when my watch is either already dead or dies during my sleep, so I lose all data in full for that night. I wish it could do some sort of “Handoff” between both devices to also more accurately gather data, although I don’t have any actual complaints about these things in the first place; just helpful suggestions.
A must-have especially for people with sleep diaorders, IMO! Also great for people who want to boost their waking life’s productivity and functionality by ensuring ways to train oneself for better and better quality sleep as a whole! I would recommend this app to friends and family, for sure.
My only quibble being that the Fitbit Versa watch sleep tracker seem to more accurately track my sleep out of the box. But at least AutoSleep provides the user with the ability to adjust or train it's sleep tracking. And it seems to be converging.
I had some problems with battery life when I first started using AitoSleep, but that's typical of the watch, and you cannot really blame it on autosleep.
I am happy to report that I acquired a new watch4 and kept my old watch3. AutoSleep works quite well running on whatever watch I am wearing overnight while charging of the other watch. Usually I wear the older watch3 overnight to track my sleep and provide AutoWake alarms,
While enjoying the larger watch4 display during the day.
Another battery life trick: put the watch into do not disturb or even theater mode overnight. Especially when you don't need to wake up early the next day, or, if you don't trust the interaction of these quiet modes with whatever alarm app you are using, if you have an alarm not on your watch/ iPhone.
Auto Sleep captures and presents a substantial amount of data.
This application has turned the Apple Watch, iPhone and Apple Health experience from mundane and extremely lackluster into a rich, quantified experience.
(I wish this company was entrusted to overhaul and rebuild the entirety of Apple Health)
This is an essential application if you have an Apple Watch.
I can not imagine my Apple Health paradigm without it.
The application is truly well done and functions seamlessly. I’ve been using it for almost three years without any issues.
Few software purchases do I ever feel as though, the developer is not being compensated enough, that I have gotten my money’s worth and more. Even quite a few updates including UI and UX improvements have been free.
This is without question the best sleep tracking application on the App Store.
I do genuinely thank you for your work.
I have been using this app, and others of theirs.... and it is great.
I fully support this. It has simple data for people who don’t want o dig deep... it very automated and doesn’t require much attention. BUT..... BIG BUT here. For those who love to go deep and learn and see trends.... it’s simply amazing. To me.... this is what other developers are missing. The big data analysis. This little device offers an opportunity into the window of our lives a way that we’ve never had before. And these guys get that. I have learned so much about myself from the data that these guys collect and allow me to compare/analyze. Like my REM rhythm seems to be roughly 1 hr 20 min. And waking up in the middle of the night to pee at the right time based on that rhythm has actually improved my heart rate and my sleep quality significantly!! Thank u for all you do!
I have been a dedicated Fitbit user since it was introduced. I confess after getting my Apple Watch and installing this app, I two handed it and continued to use my Fitbit. Wanted to see how the data compared.
I have a few quibbles with the sleep/awake data in this app but you can tweak in the settings. Would also be nice to get REM info.
I am thoroughly impressed with the amount of data available through this. I way geeked out over it when first installed.
And the readiness value!!!! Shut the front door! It is SO accurate. Initially I pooh poohed the idea but I have to say it is almost always spot on. It’s uncanny.
Maybe I don’t understand how to get to it, but I’d like to be able to see historical readiness values. If anyone knows how to do that I’d be interested.
Good job on this app.
Man, I could write a novel about how my wife’s sleep patterns have affected us in one way or another. She gets “demonic hell witch” angry if she’s woken up before 8 hours and it makes for a bad day. Then, there are times where she can’t get to sleep and ends up getting 6 hours or less but has to go to work. It just ruins her whole day. I can survive if I get little sleep and not be cranky. She is not the same.
This app has not only helped regulate our sleep hours, bedtimes, and wake ups - it’s helped us see our sleep patterns and notice changes that we should make to our lives. I’m very thankful for it. I don’t write reviews often because I’m a naturally lazy person and these are in no way obligatory, but the app developers for AutoSleep deserve it. Great job, everyone!
Love this, brilliant idea! The watch already tracks your movement and heart rate all day, so rather than having an extra app on the watch to eat battery, this is just an app on your phone that syncs with the Health data that the watch records. All you do is wear the watch to bed and it automatically tracks everything. It’s not always perfect (but then I doubt any consumer grade sleep tracking product will be) but after you sleep you can view it in the app and easily adjust the calibration/sensitivity and also manually mark periods where you were/were not sleeping. And if you do want to add a little manual step to see how long it took you to fall asleep, it has a “lights out” feature for that too - the feature can also tie to HomeKit to actually turn lights out.
This is a good app until you have a problem. I’ve been using this app for nearly two years and have had a number of problems in the time with the app communicating with the watch or Apple Health, etc. Every single time I ask for help, the response I get is to take the exact same steps laid out in the FAQ section. Steps I’ve already taken. Every. Single. Time. It is never a problem that needs to be addressed with a possible bug in the app. It’s always Apple updates that are the problem. If you’re selling an app on the a App Store, I think it’s your job to keep up with the updates and update your app to work with the most current iOS version. I wouldn’t recommend this app at all and I’m about to stop using it myself. Go back to Fitbit or something.
I really enjoy and appreciate the insights I get from this ap!
Although it’s so helpful and downright practical, it does have a hiccup or two that might need tweaking.
At times it seems to have trouble “catching” when I go to sleep. Still am not sure whether it’s better to just fall asleep or set the ap when I’m ready to sleep. Any suggestions?
Also—I’m 75—if I want to “hit the hay” before 9pm I think it gets confused; or, for example, just ignores the fact that I probably went to sleep before 9 and thus it will just call it day (or night!) and “choose” a later time that I “fell asleep”.
Regardless—I still relish this ap greatly—thanks for what it does!
I've had this app since January (it's now April.) Since it doesn't record my sleep at least twice a week, and hasn't since I first got it, I also downloaded a free watch based sleep app, SleepWatch. SleepWatch never misses a night. Autosleep hasn't worked 5 out of the last 7 days. I've restarted both my watch and my phone nearly every day. There's a contact for help button on the app, but while it opens an email, it won't send it. This app wasn't worth $ for me. Complete waste. It says dropped readings and doesn't record almost every time the other app says I'm in deep sleep. I want a refund.
