    I purchased a Series 1 to complement my Series 3 LTE for just such a reason and I use it with my two sleep apps so I can track my sleep better. Been very happy I did so. Doubly so because it then meant I had a Watch to wear whilst my 3 was being 'repaired' by Apple awhile back. :cool:

    I'm considering sleeping with it to track my sleep.. which sleep apps do you use?

    I'm afraid that it'll make me uncomfortable whilst sleeping, hence the reason I'm asking the group.

    If comfort is your main concern, just try it out a night and you may have an idea.
    Though to be honest, many people take their conventional watch off at night before sleeping. So yeah.
    I use Apple Watch to track my sleeping. So far works great. I can recharge when I know I won’t need to fill activity ring and use watch, or I need to sync music, which of course, will take quite a while to finish.

    AutoSleep and Sleep++.

    I'll be honest and say that I don't think I've ever noticed any problems wearing it to bed. Whilst my 3 has a fancy link strap, the 1 is just as it came out the box. Very comfortable personally speaking.

    I wear mine every night to track my heart rate. I find that comfort mostly depends on the band. I don't like wearing the modern buckle at night, I don't mind the milanese loop too much, but the best is the sport loop. It makes the watch completely unobtrusive.

    Nope. Put it on the charger and go to bed. Guess i will go read up on what those apps are supposed to tell you.

    I think is isn’t worth it. Life should be simpler. AutoSleep and Sleep++ will tell you only curiosities. At best.

    AW2, with sport band.
    I wear it every night since more than a year, without any issue.

    I use Autosleep to monitor my sleep.

    After having modified the settings to adapt them to my real needs, I’m able to recharge the AW every 46-48 hours.

    This allows me to keep a very accurate track of my activities and rings as well.

    On top of it I use on daily basis the Nokia Body+ smartscale, so my health app gets updated with a comprehensive amount of data, every day.

    Can’t live without it anymore.

    I don’t see the comfortability with sleeping with a watch on. Mine would stay on a charger as needed.

    Have been wearing it until today without any discomfort. From now on it will stay on charge and I'll use a damaged Fitbit that still provides sleep data but presents this data in an extremely simple graphic format. The whole sleep data thing is not really important for me but if I wake up feeling less than rested, I can always see why. It's not going to change or solve anything. From day 1 I've never used the default AW band, immediately recognising it would lead to discomfort and possibly worse. Instead I bought a Sport Loop which provides flexibility and comfort. I can slip it from my left to right hand in a couple of seconds, loosen it or tighten in just one second. Messing with buckles doesn't work for me.

    I’m with you. I know how I sleep...I don’t need an app to tell me I got up to pee.

    Series 3 Nike edition here & always wear to bed. Use it for sleep tracker & also the alarm.

    Up at 06:00 every morning during week. Little vibration on wrist , enough to wake me but no one else. Stick on charger whilst having a shower & getting ready for work. Always 100% for when I leave the house.

    I only wear my AW at night, to wake me in the morning without waking my wife. I've never had a problem with comfort while sleeping...just remember to put it in theater mode so the screen doesn't light up when you move in your sleep.

    I sleep with my watch on. Though I slept with a conventional watch on for most of my life so it felt normal to sleep with the AW. Now it tracks my sleep which I find useful. I travel internationally and it is interesting to see how my sleep patterns.

    Mine only comes off to charge. Sleeping with it on has never been a problem for me.

    I've tried sleeping with the AW on and if you are a bit of a restless sleeper it can become annoying. Nowadays i just think it's better to take it off at night, have it re-charge fully overnight, while giving your wrist a rest (stops you getting that sweaty smell lol).

    I leave mine on, but in power reserve mode. It gives me a way to check the time without having a clock lit by the bed, or having to move enough to check something on the nightstand. I can just push a button and get an update if I need it.

    Well, I like it to tell what time it is when I get up to pee.

    It depends there are health benefits for certain people. I’m a PTSD sufferer and it can help me control it better by knowing I really need to get to bed earlier or exercise more etc.

    I have never had an issue sleeping wth the watch but I always sleept with a normal anyway

    I always sleep with mine on. The only time mine comes off is to shower and to swap watches when the current one needs charging. I use Auto Sleep to track my sleep but over the past few months, I've not been checking the app at all.

    I was always in the habbit of sleeping with my watch on and wearing it 24/7 from way back when I got my first watch when I was about 10 back in the 70s.

    Yep. Heartwatch or Autosleep by same developer. I've had some sinus/upper respiratory infections after cold motorcycle rides or especially long runs where I think I was wearing myself down. If I start to feel bad I look at my HR history during sleep. If it's up a few beats you can bet I have an infection starting since that's one sign the body is fighting an infection. Otherwise not great need since my sleeping HR will get down to predictable 38-39 bpm.

    I sleep with my Apple Watch on. I use the Pillow app to track my sleep. I'm able to make it about 48 before I need to charge my watch so I usually just put it on the charger while I'm in the shower or doing my makeup.

    I sleep with AW. I slept with my Jawbone and Fitbit so I really enjoy the sleep monitoring aspects of it. I use Autosleep.

    I sleep with earplugs because I'm a super light sleeper. So being able to have the AW vibrate to wake me up is AWESOME. Love it - and when I'm out on work trips away from my wife (or at home and family has an emergency) - my AW vibrating to let me know of a call has been great too.

    Being able to check the time without having to roll over and look at the clock is nice.
