    Hello friends.!
    Now i want to ask for yr help.
    I tried the Bedtime with a specific Wake Alarm. Though I disable it, it would pop up and alarm as usual.
    Is it a bug or having a way to delete the Wake Alarm?
    Thank you

    You need to toggle the switch off. If you cancel the alarm it resets for the next day you've set, so the alarm icon stays up top.

    I've got the same behavior. The bedtime alarm is "off", but I still get notifications for bedtime. I assume it's a bug.

    I get the notification too, but the alarm doesn't go off. It's probably a bug.

    If you previously had one set, make sure and go into options and turn off each day. For example, I had one set for mon-fri. I had to go into options and unselect each day even though the alarm was set to off. I am sure it is a bug, but that fixed the notification showing for me.

    It is a pretty useless feature IMO. Anyone that can do basic math knows when they need to sleep in order to get X amount of hours.

    Are you guys asking how to stop the reminder to go to bed or asking how to make the morning alarm go away? The toggle switch you see above the dial is just for the sound that would play in the morning. It will still remind you 7 days of the week its bedtime. In addition, the days selected in the options screen is for days you would like the wake reminder. (Assuming you have the wake reminder switch on)

    Its true the math is easy to calculate for going to bed. This reminder is for the times or the people that look up and realize its well past the time they should have gone to bed. If you already go to bed at the same time and get up at the same time this feature will not be a prompt for you but just a record of activity that is added to Health metrics. If you're like me and get distracted in the evenings with reading or videos or whatever its a nice reminder that I need to pack it in for the evening and it wakes me on time in the morning. I already had a morning alarm so this is the same plus the bedtime alert.
