    So far tried all the different sleep apps but they all seem inconstant. How do you find them?

    I am using a Fitbit Blaze at the moment for sleep.

    Come on Watch OS4 (sleep tracking:))

    That may be a big assumption to think that if Apple includes one in OS4, that it would be any more consistent :)

    AutoSleep is the best damn app for sleep tracking. I have tried pretty much all of them. AutoSleep is extremely accurate...and once you customize the sensitivity (depending on your sleep pattern), it is flawless 99% of the time.

    My routine is simple...charge it while I eat supper and shower, then wear it to bed till the next evening. I charge only once a day. I have the original AW...so, you guys with the newer models should have no problem.

    Small and comfortable enough to sleep with. Watches are just too big for me to sleep with.

    Quite accurate for me

    AutoSleep works great for me. Works better than my Garmin 235 and Garmin Connect, I am not a fan of FitBit products, so can't really comment there, and works almost as well as my Basis Peak did before they got recalled.

    Basis was definitely the best at giving detailed sleep analysis, but AutoSleep comes close.

    Personally, I find that Apple tends to dumb down their native applications (Workout is a prime example), and make them with a very limited feature set. So I don't know if I care if Apple ever releases a native sleep tracking app as I probably would use it as much as I use the native Workout app which is never.

    I will monkey pile on AutoSleep too. I have the HeartWatch app to pair with it. Pretty cool too see how my heart rate changes at night. I had a pretty wild dream the other night and it woke me up. HR showed 100+ during that dream. Sleep HR is usually low 50s.

    Their activity app is quite accurate and they purchased Beddit. I think my assumption may work out :)

    It is if you adjust the sensitivity every day. I could never get it to consistently pick up my awake times without adjusting sensitivity everyday. One day it would be perfect. Great! The next day, nothing. Adjust, picked up, next day, nothing. Argh!

    I had one of those before. Not very accurate sleep tracking but by far the best band to wear for bed.

    Beddit is now Apple :) I will wait till WatchOS4. For now, Fitbit for sleep tracking (sleep stages is awesome).

    I use AutoSleep. It's not perfect for me but when it does work, it works well. Sometimes it doesn't record my sleep at all and sometimes it shows I'm sleeping when I'm eating and doing other things. I've tried it on three different iPhones with three watches and had the same things happen on all three phones. Not sure I would try anything else since the other apps I have found also cost money, it could get expensive.

    Try "Tweak" and adjust the sensitivity. I also turn on the option that when i grab my iPhone, i am awake.
