Great app, and almost certainly the best sleep tracker on the App Store. What I love most about it is that it uses multiple data sources—movement of your watch, movement of your phone, and your heart rate from your watch to make a pretty accurate reading of when you were asleep. Although several of its competitors support showing heart data, most don’t actually use your heart rate for sleep detection. It also doesn’t try pseudo-scientific REM sleep detection (my understanding is that you can’t do this accurately with a wrist tracker, even though some apps pretend to); it just tries to understand when you were in restless sleep and when you were in restful sleep. And it allows you to carefully tweak the analysis so it fits you exactly. It doesn’t offer an intelligent alarm or snoring recordings/detection. These would be my biggest requests. But you can use this in tandem with other apps that do that. Also, it would be nice if you could tweak the “phone movement” threshold. For example, it should be easy to tell when you’re in extremely disordered sleep because you’re pressing the snooze button on your phone. Right now you can either turn phone detection on or off, and if you turn it on, snooze button interaction with multiple alarms shows up as awake. Overall great app though—an easy five stars.
THIS SHOULD BE ON THE APPLE WATCH OUT OF THE BOX!!! Both apps are $5 bucks total. NOTHING when you consider the cheapest apple band is $50!! And this offers soooo much versatility for your watch. I literally would have sold this Apple Watch if it were not for these apps! They NEVER CRASH AND NEVER HAVE AN ISSUE!! also the heart watch can ALERT YOU WHEN YOUR HEART RATE IS TOO HIGH OR TOO LOW WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT THE WATCH SHOULD DO!!! THE AUTO SLEEP TRACKING IS AS GOOD AND AS DETAILED AS FITBIT! For 2 bucks?!!? Come on that's a crazy deal, and the watch still has a full day battery even if you wear it to bed. I use it for voice to text alerts and emails all day at work and tracking a workout in morning with continuous heart rate tracking and still from putting it on at 10pm to track sleep , exercise at 6am, to work till 5 pm the watch still has about 20% left at 7-8pm. And if I charge it after waking from tracking sleep, for just 5 - 10 mins while I get ready in morning, brush and make coffee, it is back to 100%!! Again, Apple should be sooooo grateful that this company made these apps. I love that cardiogram is doing heart health studies with their apps and it's free, so we should all do it for the study, but THESE APPS, heart watch and auto sleep are waayy better cleaner and absolutely worth every cent. They are ESSENTIAL if you have an Apple Watch!
I’ve had several activity trackers over the decade. They have had their strengths and weaknesses. Up until now, the Jawbone UP3 was the best for sleep tracking. My Garmin Vivoactive HR was great for activity, but terrible for monitoring sleep. I finally gave in to the Apple Watch series 4, and love it, but am still surprised that they don’t outright offer sleep tracking. I have a varied schedule and work nights, so knowing how behind or on track with sleep is very difficult. I skeptically bought the AutoSleep triad of apps and have been amazed at their accuracy. The auto sleep detect has been right on. And I am impressed with the ability to distinguish deep sleep. I can tell when that is accurate as well... I’ve felt tired after 7 hours of sleep and the app shows I got no deep sleep. Conversely, I’ll make up for it with 6 or 7 hours of sleep and have 3 hours of deep sleep and I feel great. So I know it’s accurate. The breakdown of my averages of sleep and heart rate are very useful as well. It’s not perfect. I’ve taken naps in the late afternoon that it has missed. But overall, the accuracy is stunning. This is money extremely well-spent. It adds so much value to my Apple Watch for me. I can’t believe Apple has ignored this aspect of its health applications. But AutoSleep is about as good as it gets.
I’ve used quite a few sleep apps over the last year or two and this is by far the best. You have two options - use it with an Apple Watch or without. If you don’t have a watch, the app correlates the data from when you plug your phone in vs unplugging it, but it also takes into effect when your phones screen is on and subtracts it from your total sleep hours! This is the first app I’ve ever seen do this! When you use it with your watch, if you turn it into “Theater Mode”, it gets really detailed information about your sleep and tells you when you were in different sleep levels, but with Theater mode all night it uses a whopping 2% battery. It still correlates phone screen time into sleep totals, and subtracts that from your sleep, so you get a much more accurate picture of how long and well you’ve slept. The only bad thing is you have to remember to charge the watch before you get to the point of being in bed. Probably my only gripe is I think metrics for heart correlation could maybe be broken down a bit more (average HR in REM, average in Deep Sleep, etc), but it does give graphs of where your HR attended out over time so that’s nice.
This app could be great, but I just feel that it needs some work. I’m not sure why the UI is set up the way it is since it is not user-friendly at all. I would consider myself pretty “tech-savvy” and I have a hard time figuring out this app. The main display is fine, but I still feel it could use an update too. Trying to figure out all of the tabs and what everything inside the app does + how to use it is frustrating when it should be designed to be simple. For whatever reason my data keeps recording that I fall asleep right around 12am every night. This is not always the case, and I don’t touch my phone after I’m in bed, so the only reason why this could be happening could be from a noise app that has a timed shut off. I’m not sure why this would be triggering a phone movement but that’s the only thing that seems to make sense. This would all be fine if I could just edit the time I actually fell asleep, but again, the UI is so frustratingly bad on the edit tab that it seems impossible to do. You can only hit “less” or “more” sleep, but it doesn’t let you control where this is adding or taking away from. So if I add more then it starts counting the time I started working at my desk in the morning (when I was not moving). I would love to see an updated UI including easier to use controls within the app. I really really want to love this app but there are some things that need updating.

Even if you don't wear your Watch to bed, AutoSleep can track your time in bed. It's extremely simple.
If you DON'T wear your Watch to bed, then simply take your Watch off before you go to sleep. As soon as you touch your iPhone or put your Watch back on in the morning then AutoSleep will know that you have finished sleeping.
As everyone is a little bit different. AutoSleep provides a simple setup wizard and an option to tweak if you are a very restless sleeper.
If you wear your Apple Watch to bed*, AutoSleep will also analyse your sleep quality. By using time asleep, restlessness, time awake and heart rate it can score the quality of your sleep and provide you with a comprehensive nightly analysis.
*Note. If you do not wear your Watch to bed, AutoSleep simply captures the amount of time sleeping.
AutoSleep also works with HeartWatch our premier heart & activity monitoring app and writes your Sleep information to Apple Health.
