Needs explanation 1/5
When I first used Autosleep, I was impressed by the wondrous amount of data – it seemed to have quantified every possible aspect of my sleep. That feeling wore off in the past week, as no matter how poorly or well I felt after waking up, the app consistently rated my “sleep quality” between 40 and 60 (apparently poor). What is missing in this app is any deep explanation of what these numbers mean, such as:
How does it tell if I am sleeping? One night, I had insomnia, but tried staying very still in a failed attempt to fall asleep during a 3 hour period. Autosleep said that I was sleeping all during that period (not!). When I feel I’ve slept 4 hours, Autosleep says 7 – why?
How does Autosleep calculate sleep “quality”. It seems like a number they pull from the air, given that the only measurements they take are my heart rate and position.
How does Autosleep calculate my “Deep sleep”? Again, a slow heart rate does not correlate for me with any form of sleep, as it stays the about the same throughout the night.
I assume that “restlessness” is calculated from movements of the watch. Is that so?
How does Autosleep know I’m awake? I does not seem to be related to me standing up, as I’m never standing for more than 5 minutes.
What do all those numbers, color shades and ring gaps mean on my “clock” page?
What are those floating “dots” on my sleep chart mean? Some are gray and some red.
All it seems is that Autosleep is taking a few readings (heart rate, position) from my watch and expanding them to hundreds of “data points” without any explanation of how they were derived or what they mean. Why doesn’t Autosleep explain where these measurements come from?
I am not at all satisfied!! 2/5
Well - it does not do the sleep tracking as accurate like Fitbit .. Also the graphical representation is highly confusing and not easy to understand.The app should add simplicity in analyzing the sleep and must do accurate analytics on the sleep data rather than just assuming .
I am not satisfied with this app and will definitely ask Apple to refund my dollars back.
By Robert Panek
I deleted the app because I felt the app wasn’t accurate
It compatible with IPhone 10 or IOS 11 garbage app 1/5
This app used to work but kept getting worse with each upgrade. By IOS 11 it become worthless. I was using an IPhone 6 and recently upgraded to the iPhone 10 which this app is incompatible with
Kinda like Fitbit sleep tracker 5/5
Reminds me of my Fitbit sleep tracker. Love the information it provides. Worth the buying!
Best sleep app 4/5
I started with sleep watch and it’s awful. This one actually tracks your sleep well. I know I don’t get 13 hours of sleep a night but that’s what other apps were telling me. I know I get less than 7 most nights. My one complaint would be I know it takes more than 4 min to fall asleep but that’s what it has tracked when I use the “lights off” on the watch. Other than that seems to be tracking sleep accurately.
Great app!! Thanks! 5/5
I love this app! I love my iwatch since I can do everything with it but only downside from a smart watch compared to Fitbit was tracking sleep. My husband doesnt sleep much so I wanted to learn how much sleep he gets to help him get more. While researching I stumbled upon this one. And it works great and very accurate that I could tell. I’ve tried others and this one is best by far. Was worth my $3. Thanks for developing this app for the iwatch making it such a great experience.
Amazing and pretty accurate app! Please don’t change nothing! I don’t know how many times I’ve seen developers make an incredible app only to screw it up later! It’s not broke don’t fix it!
Better Than Fitbit 5/5
The major thing this app does better than Fitbit is it gives you a 7 day "recharge level" which is extremely useful for figuring why I feel tired several days in a row. This can be affected by a day or two in a row of terrible or no sleep. Which I had happen this week. After I had been wondering why I was feeling so tired still I just checked that 7 day recharge level. Ah. Only 82%. Almost there. A few more nights of good sleep should do it.
This app is awesome!
Love this app except 4/5
I wish when you where stationary it didn’t think you were sleeping. I have set up the quite time for night when I know I’m going to be watching tv, but like today, I had a Hair apt and was stationary for a hr and it counted it as sleep. Any downtime it thinks your sleeping, hope they can fix that...Other than that I love the app!
Accurate and Easy 5/5
Best sleep app on the App Store. I’ve tried them all. You don’t have to work at it or remember anything with AutoSleep...it just works. I use it in combination with my Apple Watch at night. Great work and looking forward to seeing what else they can do with it. Also, paired with HeartWatch is a great setup.
No iPhone x update 3/5
By Nick Maja
Great app but still no iPhone X update :(
Horrible design 1/5
I decided to give it a chance despite reading a review that said how horrible and backwards the design is.. it is totally horrible... no options so to speak... it’s all “tap it and see what it does” sort of approach. As far as good sleep tracking system... hmmm... it seems to always say that I fall asleep faster than it actually is... but then again, i am not expecting perfection since such very few apps offer sleep tracking on the AW. i will change my rating when you actually add some options to actually operate this app... it’s a waste of money so far.
Ugly, hard to read 2/5
I switched to the Apple Watch from Fitbit. I’m surprised Apple health doesn’t include sleep tracking so I found this app, which costs extra money. It’s just an ugly app and hard to understand. I miss the Fitbit app.
Some pros, some big cons 2/5
The metrics are good and helpful and detailed when IT WORKS.
1. The interface/visualization is unnecessarily complex and confusing
2. If at 10pm I start “lights off” on my watch, then at 4am wake up to check my phone for some important email, then start “lights off” again, next morning the app only shows sleep data from 4am thereafter...this is ridiculous!
iOS 11 ruined this app for me 1/5
I get correctly tracked nights maybe twice a week with the rest not detecting sleep at all.
Works better than expected 5/5
I cannot believe how accurate this app is. My favorite part of my FitBit was the sleep tracker. When I upgraded to the Apple Watch I wanted a sleep app and this is PERFECT!
Don’t get the other reviews?! 1/5
I got this app thinking it must be amazing based on the reviews. I listen to podcasts when I sleep and wear my watch. No matter how I set the app up, it just will not work and I keep having to edit the sleep time. It was much easier and takes less time to track sleep with a free app that I tell when I sleep and wake. Don’t get this app if you touch you phone through the night!
75% Accurate 3/5
I would say this app is about 75% accurate. It gets the general gist of my sleep and wake timings but they usually need a little tweaking (which you’re able to do so manually in the app).
Hopefully in the future, you guys can continue to improve on the app’s accuracy and maybe add in a Wake-Up Mood function. 😊
Good but buggy 4/5
I use this app every night and love the information it gives. I use my watch to sleep but have to delete and reinstall the app (on both phone and watch) every few days because the “Lights Out” feature doesn’t work. When I hit the toggle it does nothing. I love that feature because it tells me how long it took from when I hit my head to when I’m actually sleeping. Other than it being annoying with “Lights Out”, it’s a good app.
Works for the most part 3/5
If I take my phone off at work, it thinks I am laying down. Messes up the sleep data in Apple Health.
Wonderful app, but lacks support for iPhone X 4/5
Could use better support
Great and actually works pretty well. 4 stars only because it doesn't have smart alarms to wake at lightest phase. PLEASE implement that feature and I'd be over the moon.
Best sleep tracker 4/5
By joe shmo
Effortless sleep tracking and it is amazingly accurate once you tune its sensors to you. Provides a plethora or insights into your sleep cycle.
The app is installed on my watch and phone and it tracks my sleep perfectly on the phone when I wear my watch to bed but the watch app does not display the previous night sleep rings properly. It is a minor issue since it is redundant to the info shown on the phone.
Don’t understand the raving reviews 1/5
This app is literally the worst sleep-tracking app I’ve ever used.
It is the least accurate. I usually go to bed around 11:30 and read books for half an hour, this app always say I’m asleep starting 11:30. I’ve tried to calibrate/tweak the app several times but still
The data display is the worst among similar apps. Instead of showing different sleep stages, the app throws all the raw data to your face with little or no processing at all. You need to turn on the “legend”, which takes up half of the screen to know what each mysterious bar means, and they YOU need to calculate how well did you sleep last night. No, thanks!
Not “auto” 2/5
The app is about as automatic as a paper and pencil. Unless you adjust, edit, compensate manually, the data is wildly inaccurate.
Great app! 5/5
It blows me away that the app is as accurate as it is without me telling it when I am going to sleep. I use this and the heart watch app and think both are truly a must have.
I switched from Fitbit to iWatch and I loved Fitbit’s sleep tracker. I do not like the this App or the HeartWatch. I am a restless sleeper and get up during the night and the watch says I’m sleeping. Not happy ☹️
Not impressed 2/5
By Morgan Jo
Not sure how this has the amount of 5 star reviews that it does. Even if I select lights out and leave my phone and watch on the charger for 12 hours, it may say I only slept 3 hours. Or I can play on my phone basically all night and it’ll say I slept 9 hours. It doesn’t seem reliable. I do like the interface and that you can edit your hours, but if I’m editing my hours every single night, how reliable is it as a tracker? I could just manually enter my sleep into a free app.....
Grossly inaccurate and painful to navigate 1/5
This app is an absolute waste of money. If you want an app that gives you an extremely confusing and useless breakdown of your sleep.. this is for you. Also, the sleep tracking is as inaccurate as can be, it does not account for time awake during sleep or light sleep. Even if you are tossing and turning for half of the night it will still tell you that you were sleeping the entire time. Terrible app. Don’t buy.
Sweet sleep tracker! 4/5
They've thought of most everything with this app. Do you sleep with your phone in your bed? Or are you crazy active in your sleep? They've got you covered. Only thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is it is awkward to manually adjust your sleep time if you need to; app makes you "+\-" time when it would be much easier to just type the actual numbers. That said, this app is still superb. I've been able to actually see what drinking three beers before bed does to my heart rate and how deeply I sleep.
Needs Work 3/5
This app has a lot of potential. It does well with gathering data but the UI is pretty clunky and not intuitive at all. Very hard to decipher the different information categories. Also, not being able to tell the difference between a full night’s sleep and a nap makes the numbers become askew.
Great App Support 5/5
Initially had issues getting it to work, but it was the settings on my phone. I emailed all support and they were able to tell me exactly what needed to be fixed. I made the changes (hesitantly, a bit frustrated) and the next two nights I got a perfect snap shot of my sleep. Great sleep app, great app support.
Need a fix 2/5
I have been use this app since was launched and works great.
Lately the the accuracy of the sleep data isn’t good, the sleep time is high, despite the sensitive scale is close to LESS.
I think this issue start after the IOS 11.
Let’s wait for an update that can fix the issue.
Doesn’t seem to work now that I’m pregnant 2/5
To be honest I’m not sleeping well anymore, but my tracker looks like I’m up for hours at a time. I have been tossing and turning because of being uncomfortable and having anxiety over this pregnancy, but the app shows that I’ve been sleeping only three hours a night for six months. I’m wondering if the other heartbeat in my body is screwing up the program. It used to work perfectly for me, until I got pregnant.
This app is useless. It stopped syncing with my Apple Watch after two days. Could not remedy the problem using the apps suggestions. Sorry I purchased it.
Great Sleeping App 5/5
By IM Kitty
This app tracks my sleep like my other device plus more. When I got the Apple Watch, I missed being able to monitor my sleep. Then I came across this app and eventually bought it. So far it has worked for me tracking my sleep and heart rate. Previously I wore a Garmin VivoFit2 that tracked the different aspects of my sleep.
Great app. However... 3/5
By Eight limbs
It can be a little difficult to understand. Additionally, it would be great if it had a better way of telling the app when you’re going to sleep. I have shifting schedules and Im not always sleeping at night so the set/approximate bed times it asks you during setup are no good to me for this reason. There should be a button that is used strictly when you want to let the app know youre going to bed regardless of the time. If this is a feature already then I dont know about it.
Exactly what I need 5/5
After using sleep++ I had this idea as well, that it should be possible to actually figure out the sleep time base on the sensors, and dont require manually to start the “sleep session”. This app just nails it. Not only it implemented that, but also implemented it very good!
Interface frustration 2/5
Lots of Good ideas with this app. But the interface is very frustrating to decipher, and almost requires a degree just to get the app up and running. They talk about a cleaner simpler interface! I hate to think what it used to be like. This app has actually kept me up late into the night trying to figure it out!
Not accurate 1/5
I have clinical insomnia. This says I get 8 hours of sleep every night. It doesn’t track my awake times at all. My Fitbit Alta has far superior sleep tracking.
Good for tracking sleep 4/5
By Pr1ncess Em
I went from the fitbit to apple watch and was looking for an app to track my sleep. This one does exactly what I want. It breaks down how much time is spent in each stage and how restful my sleep actually was.
Just ok, hasn’t been updated in 7 months 2/5
App hasn’t been updated in 7 months. Wondering if they’ve abandoned the app. Could use some updates & iPhone X refreshes. Seems accurate at times, but off at others.
Great app! 5/5
Gives you great information & it quite accurate measuring your sleep
I’m not sleeping.... 2/5
This app reads me as asleep when I’m at my desk working, when I’m driving home, or when I’m watching tv. I have to go in and edit it everyday to get a somewhat accurate reading. I’ve emailed support and this was their resolution. Not happy I paid for this app and it’s the worst app on my phone.
Started great and now not so much... 1/5
When I first started to use this app it was amazing and accurate. The past few weeks I see an accurate reading in the morning after awaking but if I check the app later in the day it somehow jumbled up my sleep record and go from saying that I slept 7.5hrs to sleeping 4.5hrs. No matter how many times I “tweak” and reset the app it doesn’t not operate anywhere near to how it did before. 5 star rating reduced to a 1...
Horrible App 1/5
Doesn’t work. Keeps telling me I slept for almost 9 hours yesterday, when I didn’t have my watch on. I want my money back. Useless.
It was great until the time change 1/5
By Clams Maloney
It seems the app wasn't coded with daylight savings in mind, leading to it going insane and claiming the watch is charging while it's on my wrist.
Weird bug 3/5
Occasionally while I’m sleeping the app believes my watch is being charged. As far as I’m aware, I’m not waking up in the middle of the night, charging my watch, and then putting it back on my wrist.
Easy to understand what’s going on, so really good job with that. The feature request isn’t working for me for some reason. It would be really nice to be able to set an alarm clock to go off after you’ve had enough sleep.
