    Anyone heard anything?

    Assuming that Apple can expand its battery life and reduce its charging time to minimal period, do you think the  Watch will know if you're sleeping if you go to bed with it on?

    It'd be nice to have expanded health stats like my dad's Garmin provides for sleeping if possible by hardware, but it's also be nice to not be pinged if I fall asleep at some point in the day and don't care to get up.

    That's useless, because people don't sleep with their watch, that's non hygienic.

    That would be an excellent feature. Shut down all notifications, if that's what the user wants, when they fall asleep. I would set it for that.

    I really don't think we need the watch to have this feature, and you might hate having to wear a bulky watch for this. I think small wireless stickers and sensors in clothing that detect things will be HUGE, the smart bands and watches were just a start for sleep monitoring but really not great for this purpose I think.

    I use a sleep app with my iphone 6, it has changed my life for the better. Placement of the phone is key, but it works pretty good once you get that right. I found out I come out of a deep sleep into light sleep at around 8am every morning, figured out it was the traffic outside, put cotton in my ears and now stay in deep sleep another full hour. Deep sleep stage not dreaming but where you body is paralyzed is when the body makes most repair, very important.

    So I love the idea, but not with this watch, it's to bulky, better choices I think, but it's interesting.

    FitBit tracks your sleeping pattern and iOS 8 (Health.app) supports Sleep Analysis, so I think that is why Mascots is asking.

    WATCH™ sees you when you're sleeping,
    WATCH™ knows when you're awake,
    WATCH™ knows if you've been bad or good,
    So be good for goodness' sake.

    This isn't really a problem, for me at least. I had both a fitbit, and now a Pebble Smartwatch, and I never even think twice. It doesn't impede my sleeping at all. It's also nice have a vibrating alarm to wake you up.

    when the watch is mainly targeted towards fitness people that use it while sweating. sleeping you don't "sweat" as much as working out...
    non hygienic my ass

    Much like my phone I'll clean it regularly...

    My concern while sleeping is having it pressed in my face, if anything.

    What are you doing where you are sweating in your sleep? Plus taking a shower in the morning is a good thing if you do (I don't sweat in my sleep)

    I have that on the iPhone. Works very well. Surely they'll make a Watch companion app. MotionX makes great apps.

    I guess for most people the Apple Watch will be charging at night, therefore the sleep tracking feature might be not there or be as practical as other devices?

    How long the battery lasts for those fit bands?
