    There seems to be some debate over what the "norm" is...

    I don't own an Apple Watch, or any watch, but I was curious if people wear them while sleeping. Isn't there sleep monitoring apps for the AW?

    I guess the question is when is the AW being charged?

    No, because the watch is nearly dead from wearing it all day

    Yes there are sleep monitoring apps, though not a native apple one.

    I charge my watch in the morning while I eat breakfast and shower. It doesn't take long to charge, about an hour to go from 0-80 and another hour to top off to 100. My watch is usually about half way charged in the morning, so charging it for 30-45 minutes while I get ready is plenty.

    I have a series 3

    I just find wearing a watch in general on my wrist while I’m sleeping is uncomfortable. So I don’t wear any watch at all.

    Although I never used to wear a watch to sleep, I now purposely wear my S0 Sport to bed as a sleep tracker using AutoSleep. I’ve been doing this since I got my S3 SS. It works great and it doesn’t bother me to wear a watch to bed.

    I've gotten used to just doing it. My arm kind of feels naked these days when I have it off. I have a sleep tracking app, but I don't really know why. I don't use that data for any meaningful reason. There were the stories of people having the watch wake them up about elevated heart rates in the middle of the night which I guess is a good reason to wear it to bed. I usually just charge it each day and never have run into issues with the battery dying on me.

    I use theater mode and could probably get it to go thru the night

    But, a quick charge before bedtime would probably guarantee it

    That said, I only occassionally where it over night

    I sleep with mine; typically on the other wrist to let my normal wrist breath a little. As for the battery life issue; I have two Apple Watches. One for sleeping and workouts; the other for daily use.

    This. Also, the screen gets smudged up when you sleep with it on, so that's kind of annoying. I basically only sleep with it on a few times a year - only when I have to get up in the middle of the night for some reason (early flight, etc).

    Also, OP - nice thread! :p

    Always slept with a watch, so Apple Watch is no different.

    I use mine to track sleep, I agree with the folks who charge during breakfast or shower, the thing has a great battery life.

    I have an S3 that I wear during the day, and I charge it at night.

    My original S0 is what I wear at night while I sleep. I have it in theatre mode, with the XL watch face in purple (no complications). I also wear it on the opposite wrist from what I wear normally, just so I remember to take that one off and put on the S3 in the morning before heading to the gym.

    I charge my S0 watch before bed and then put it back on and track sleep with the Pillow app. In the morning I top it off while I take a shower.

    I can’t stand having anything strapped to my body when I’m at home. Any Watch is the first thing off my body as I walk through the door.

    I wear one of my three Apple watches 24/7. I bought more then one so I can just switch them up when one needs charging, I put on another.

    Wear my Watch to bed every night and use AutoSleep to track. Only uses about 4-5% of the battery. Mostly just charge while showering and getting ready and breakfast.

    Mainly wear at night for the silent alarm to not wake my wife and to track heart rate while seeing the hours of sleep is ok.

    Never wear mine while sleeping except maybe an after noon nap!

    My AW lives on the charger while I sleep.

    I don’t think this place is the best place to judge where the “norm” is.

    I've gotten used to just sleeping with the watch. I like most people that have responded charge in the morning while getting ready. I've thought about tracking my sleep but not really sure how that would help- or maybe i just need to look into a good app.

    No, but it's all I got. Not exactly trying to be scientific here... just curious

    I have a S3 that I wear while sleeping. I use the pillow app to track my sleep. I'll toss it on the charger while I'm in the shower and getting ready for work. And if I need a boost, I'll use my wireless watch charger.
