    I wore my AW to bed for the first time the night before last, with no issues. I wanted to track my resting HR.

    I wore it to bed last night, and about 01:00 am, the AW woke me with a tap me to tell me to stand up! I'm all for trying to hit my stand target, but not in the middle of the night...

    Has this happened to anyone else? Is there some setting I need to activate before sleeping to avoid this happening?

    Thanks.

    I've heard of this. Dunno if the do not disturb feature avoids this?

    OFC you can turn it off. But it's not really convenient if you actually want to use the reminders at daytime and have to manually turn it off each evening before bed.

    How the hell is the watch supposed to know that you are sleeping ...

    I would suggest trying a scheduled Do Not Disturb. For example: mine's set for between 3:00am and 11:00am (late night owl).

    Not 100% sure it stops those reminders, but you can just turn DND on for an hour or two and see what happens. There might be more exact wording in the manual. Too early; eyes crossing. I will let someone else have the honor.

    The watch does not know you are sleeping, but if you have hit your stand goal already the watch will keep silent.

    If the DND setting does not disable the stand reminder, the only other option would be to disable the stand reminder when you sleep in the iPhone Apple Watch app.

    The watch isn't designed to be worn while sleeping and offers no benefit, is obviously this will happen

    Interesting. I wore mine through a nap and I guess I slept through my stand up haptic tap. I'm thinking of turning this feature off because it always goes off at the most awkward times. It was funny at my daughter's school graduation ceremony. I got my tap and sure enough so did my husband and one of the other parents who had just excitedly shown us his watch before we all sat down for the ceremony. I saw him glance at his watch with a bemused look on his face. I wonder if he's gotten his stand up alert while on the toilet yet. That seems to be a rite of passage for us Apple Watch owners. o_O

    How would the watch know you are sleeping?

    I don't have this problem because I don't sleep with the watch. OP @taff2003 asked for it.

    Same way as other fitness trackers who do it?

    :eek: "It knows when you are sleeping. It knows when you're awake. It knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake!"

    You should just be able to turn on Do Not Disturb.

    It did that to me last night, an hour before my alarm was due to go off. Ticked me off because I was not able to get back to sleep.

    I realize that the Watch doesn't track sleep, I did it to see how it was using the alarm to wake up while wearing the watch. Probably be a waste of time as I rarely sleep until it goes off.

    Someone in another thread said that his alarm did not go off when he put the watch manually in Do Not Disturb mode, so I didn't. I just put it in Airplane mode and turned off Activate on Wrist Raise. I think tweaking two things is about my maximum if I have to do it both before and after bed. Perhaps a user-tweaked Sleep mode might work, enabling you to turn off and on different functions for sleep with one tap.

    Fair comment, guys. I know I asked for this. I think being lucky not getting the alert the first night lulled me into a false sense of security! :confused:

    Thanks for the workaround suggestions!

    I also have a Fitbit, and if you want the sleep tracker to work you need to tell the Fitbit that you are going to sleep (done by a combination of button presses), otherwise the Fitbit does not know you are sleeping.

    There are lots of people that have been wearing them while they sleep, then putting them on the charger while they get ready in the morning. It's just a matter of time before sleep tracking apps are available.
    OP (or someone else that thinks it's valuable should ask Apple for a function to make Watch aware that you're calling it a night) :)

    My Watch just told me to stand. I did stand then walked to the fridge and got a Beer. Am I doing it right?

    Then you must have an earlier version of a Fitbit. I received a Fitbit Charge HR for my birthday, and it detects sleep automatically based on reduced motion and heartrate, both of which the AW can detect.

    Watch says to stand at xx:50 every hour, if it is on.

    I don't take my watch off when I take my afternoon nap. I know the alerts still go off during that 90 minutes, but since it's only a single tap, it usually doesn't bother me. The constant tapping of the alarm, is another matter. That always rouses me.
