I'm probably missing something obvious, but I want to track my sleep. I don't have a regular sleep pattern, so the sleep schedule is pointless. Can I still track my sleeping without a sleep schedule, and if so, how?

The watch knows when you are sleeping based on your blood pressure and movement.

The watch has to be in sleep focus before it will record your sleep. That is one of the differences between the stock app and AutoSleep.
Yeah, exactly the reason I use AutoSleep. The time I go to bed and get up varies. I use AutoSleep and whenever I head to bed I put my watch in Theater Mode.

I will have to try that- I am finding the automatic sleep focus to be extremely irritating. I haven't had anyone telling me when to go to sleep in decades and I'm not about to start. (Don't get me started about stand and hand washing notifications...)

No, just slept with it tonight not knowing I have no sleep schedule for friday to saturday, no data at all so you definitely need a schedule for it to track sleep.

Wrong. I never use sleep focus and I have all sleep data. Only use do not disturb mode to avoid notifications.

Just put any random sleep schedule and go sleep when you want. That’s all.

I have a sleep schedule and it's been showing me my rem, deep, etc.... but even after a week it's not showing anything for temperature. I though after 5 nights it would show me my sleep temperature?

I’ve tried to revert to using Autosleep but each time I have to give up.
Problem I have is if I look to ‘calibrate’ the clock face and choose the one that’s closest.
Okay, I have a pretty good idea what time I went off to sleep/woke up BUT how can I be expected to choose the sleep waking pattern that closest fits ? I was asleep !

Also, unless I’m missing something, Autosleep won’t track daytime ‘naps’ ?

The default Apple sleep app also tracked my nap, but without sleep stages.

How have you set up Autosleep to do that.
Should point out I haven’t yet updated my AW7 to OS9 yet.

Can I also ask…
Although you probably know you slept between 00:15 and 05:15 ….
How do you know which of the clock faces is correct in terms of ‘disturbances’ ?
