Automatically track your sleep from your Apple Watch

No buttons to press. Even the Watch app is optional. Just sleep!

How it Works

Using Advanced Heuristics AutoSleep works out how long you've slept.

If you do wear your Watch to bed:

  1. Go to Sleep.

  2. Wake up.

Even if you don't wear your Watch to bed, AutoSleep can track your time in bed. It's extremely simple.

If you don't wear your Watch to bed:

  1. Put your Watch on charge before you go to sleep.

  2. Sleep.

  3. Put your Watch back on*.

*or touch your iPhone when you wake up then put your Watch on within 30 minutes.

Fill your Sleep Rings by Sleeping

In AutoSleep your sleep sessions appear on a simple clock. As you meet your sleep goal, the clock will go from red to green letting you easily see when you achieved your goal.

There's an exciting new concept in sleep tracking. Sleep Rings. They're the perfect complement to your Watch's Activity Rings. Instead of filling them by moving and standing, you fill them by getting quality sleep.

Best of all everything uses a simple traffic light color scheme so you instantly know what's good or bad.

Tonight's Bedtime

You can ask Siri the latest time you need to be in bed to ensure that you stay in sleep credit. You can even set multiple reminders for preset intervals before your bedtime.

AutoSleep learns your patterns and sleep style and lets you know the latest bedtime that will let you stay in sleep credit, or, help you clear your sleep debt.

Smart Alarm

For WatchOS 6 and higher, AutoSleep now has a native Apple Watch Smart Alarm. It even works in flight mode.

You can either get it to wake you up early within a time window if you are in light or medium sleep or, it also has a unique "arousal" mode.

What this will do is either tickle or nudge you with haptics one time per minute within your designated wake up window. e.g. 7:20am to 7:30am.

It gently taps you on your wrist to take you out of deeper sleep so that you wake feeling much less shellshocked by your alarm. You often don't even feel it until the 3rd or 4th minute. By the time your alarm goes off, you are ready for it. It's very cool and we much prefer it to the more traditional "going off early" smart alarm as you get to snooze more organically.

You can also setup a weekly schedule for wake times and smart alarms.

Charge Reminder

One of the most common questions is "When do I charge my Watch if I am to use it for sleep tracking?".

So AutoSleep lets you a set a reminder at the most convenient time of the day. For most people this is in the evening.

It pops up and shows your current battery level and a recommendation if you need to charge the Watch. You can either Snooze it for 10,30 or 60 minutes if not convenient or, you press Doing it Now. This will then send a reminder to your iPhone in an hour's time to put the Watch back on.

Live Sleep Tracking

If you ever wake up during the night or earlier than usual and want to see how much sleep you've had, well now you can see a live update of your sleep. Two simple rings track how long you've been in bed and how much of that time has been actual sleep. These are plotted as progress onto a ring that represents your preferred number of sleep hours per night.

Analyze your Sleep Session

If you wear your Apple Watch to bed*, AutoSleep will also analyse your sleep. You can see when you were in lighter or deeper sleep, what your heart rate was doing and how much time you were awake/in disrupted sleep.

*Note. If you do not wear your Watch to bed, AutoSleep simply captures the amount of time sleeping.
