• A simple gauge of your daily readiness. This uses Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and waking pulse to indicate physical and mental stress.

  • AutoSleep combines these two amazing health metrics and simplifies them to a simple star rating and an easy to read gauge in the Watch app and the Today tab.

  • Waking pulse is automatically captured by AutoSleep, you don't need to do a thing, just wear your Watch to bed.

  • HRV is captured automatically during the night, or by a breathe session using the Watch (note that since WatchOS 8, the breathe app is now found in the Mindfulness app on your Apple Watch).

  • Users can turn off automated sleeping HRV readings to only a waking HRV through advanced settings if required. Refer to the Wellness section to learn more about capturing HRV.

Note: other apps in the market just use HRV, however AutoSleep goes the extra mile by using your Waking Pulse as part of your readiness indicator, making it the gold standard in Apple Watch readiness.

Readiness Details

The Readiness gauge displays a star rating to give you a strong indicator of the day's physical and mental performance potential as well as giving insight into whether you have been pushing things too hard. For example, if you want to use readiness to gauge how hard you should exercise, go harder when green, business as usual when grey, or consider a rest day when red. Remember that readiness is usually always in the grey to green bands and that bright green and red are outliers.

The Readiness screen shows you your current results and the difference to your baseline values. Be sure to wear the Watch for a week minimum to ensure accurate baselines, however the more you wear the Watch the better.
