    Hi guys

    So I’ve just released a new version of my app Heart Analyzer.



    The app now has the ability to calculate when you went to sleep and woke up! Never have to tell your phone or watch ‘when you went to sleep’ or ‘I just woke up’ again. I always seemed to forget! The calculation **relies** on you wearing your Apple Watch at night but would really love to know how well it works for you?



    Feedback @ simonedwardes.com would be amazing!



    Cheers and thanks

    I have been using sleep++ but I will give it a shot. Does it work with health kit?

    It will do soon, currently it simply calculates sleep times for use in app but am currently beta testing a version that add the calculated sleep values to Healthkit. These values can then be used in other apps! Hopefully will have the update out in around a fortnight. Cheers

    I've been looking for an app to show a simple graph of the heart rate for a while now. Very pleased so far! I'm going to sleep now so I'll test it out :)

    I will give it a try as I wear my AW at night to track my resting HR.

    I've been using Sleep Cycle for sleep tracking, but don't like that I have to manually start it or that it's influenced by my wife's movements. Health Kit compatibility is essential for me in the long run, but if this can just give me a better view of my overnight HR for now, that would be a start.

    Downloaded -- I'll give it a shot. Should be nicer than skimming through my Health data to see what my HR did overnight.

    1 question... it says that it has a complication, but the complication does not show up when customizing the watch face... what gives?

    Downloaded the app, and it analyzed a bunch of my data already in the Health App. I take it this app doesn't really do anything other than that, right, so the calculations should be representative right? Unfortunately it only seems to get the right sleep/wake times about 1/3 of the time.
