    I've been using Zleeper for a few days, but the iPhone app only shows Saturday data. I'm gonna try Sleep++ tonight

    My wife uses Sleep++ and likes it - she did say she watches you could expand the data - she likes the fitbit implementation of sleep data so that is what she was comparing it to.

    i've had issues with all of them. Zleeper was super buggy making it unusable, Sleep++ gave so little info about your sleep that it was nearly useless, and sleep pulse 2 said i was awake for 3 hours during the night when i certainly wasn't. Hopefully these apps will mature, but for now, i still haven't found a good one.

    I help develop a new automated sleep monitoring app called Sleep Watch. It's for Watch OS 2. We just released it and it's a work in progress. It's different because it automatically tracks your sleep without requiring manual user input of when you go to bed or when you wake up. I was pretty disappointed to find that the sleep tracking apps I have used do not have this kind of automated tracking; so, we think the app solves a real problem. We are still enhancing the accuracy of the sleep detection algorithms and we encourage users to give us feedback on our sleep detection accuracy to help make the algorithm better. It doesn't have visual graphs of your night activity yet; so if you require that then the app is probably not ready for your needs. We've made it available for $4.99 on the App Store and we would love to get your feedback!

    App Name: Sleep Watch

    Link to the App:

    Love to hear your thoughts!

    Here are some promo codes (for v.1.1.0) to try it out (to redeem go to 'App Store' app > Featured tab > Scroll to bottom of screen > Tap 'Redeem'):


    It might be a good idea for anyone that uses a code above to post here so that future readers are aware.

    Used H7X766E6HYYE, thanks.

    First 2 suggestions: pull Health Kit data to fill in personal data (age, gender, height, weight)
    allow user to fix incorrect sleep times

    Example for item 2: App says I slept until 4:30. While I did briefly wake up at 4:30, I went back to sleep until 5:45.

    **EDIT** I see now that I can correct my second one. It wasn't intuitive to me, but I'm not always too smart.

    I just started using Pillow and so far I like it a lot. If you have used a Fitbit and the Fitbit app for sleep tracking it will seem familiar, although it can do a lot more. Like the Fitbit app uses the Fitbit motion sensor, Pillow can use the watch's motion sensor to detect restlessness, or to show when you are awake and out of bed (which is important to me since there are nights I get out of bed because either I, the dog or a kid needs a bathroom break). It can also do sound recording and heart rate.

    It can automatically post sleep duration to Healthkit. If you let it read some info from Healthkit (and pay a few bucks or the full version) it gives you nice charts that compare sleep quality to metrics from healthkit like weight, recorded blood pressure trends, the number of steps you walked that day, workouts like cycling or other exercises, alcohol or caffeine intake. It looks like it also compares sleep quality to results from Nike Fuel or Runkeeper.

    Of course the question is how well can a non-clinical app paired with an iPhone and the Apple Watch really measure sleep quality? The developer says their algorithm breaks your sleep down by Awake, Light Sleep, REM, and Deep Sleep based on movement and sound. You can also assign a wake-up mood, but that doesn't seem to affect the quality score. I don't think duration does either.

    I've only used it for four days, but so far I can say that I did feel more rested on the day after it said I had good quality sleep. The other nights I scored lower for sleep quality and I felt it in the morning. It's just important to take it with a grain of salt. For me the real value is being able to easily compare sleep duration (and, with a grain of salt, sleep quality) with my weight, how much exercise or walking I've been doing, etc.

    Agree with you Sean on Pillow. I've used it for about 50 days now and I like the graphs that measure many things. The says that I register the most steps seems to be the days that I have the best sleep quality. Makes sense.

    If you have a quiet room, using the iPhone for sound tracking and the watch for movement together is nice. Hearing myself snore in the recordings isn't fun :)

    My gut tells me that Apple will add sensors to Watch 2.0 and will have their own but we shall see.
