Am I blind or is there no way to enable sleep tracking/sleep mode unless you set an alarm? Can I somehow get sleep tracking without setting my schedule, as I have no alarms on the weekends for example?

I use autosleep also, it's pretty good about just detecting when you're asleep as long as you're wearing the watch.
it will even pick up those quick on the couch naps that sometimes happen.

Not with the native app, so far as I am aware. if I am wrong, hopefully, someone will correct me.

You could use the app “AutoSleep.” It can do what you like.

Thanks guys! I just saw it syncs the info to Apple Health. I will try it!

I also use AutoSleep, and love it. To turn off alarm that you are referring to you should be able to turn it off in the clock app. I have mine set to have separate sleep schedules for week days and weekends but no alarm on either.

I also use a 3rd party app (Sleep++). But you can set a sleep schedule in the Health app, and the watch will track your sleep without having to set an alarm. However, if you fall asleep outside the time set in your sleep schedule, it doesn't register. So overall, 3rd party apps are better.
