I like the concept quite a lot, but there are a few things I think could be done better. One feature I like a lot from the native sleep settings on iPhone is the ability to turn on do not disturb automatically during sleep time. I don’t like waking up in the morning not knowing if I’m getting a call or it’s my alarm going off on my watch. Also, ‘wakey wakey’ was pronounced ‘wah-kee wah-kee’ on the watch, which was somewhat strange to wake up to. Having a more delicate voice might be better suited for a sleeping app. I think having more interaction on the iPhone side of the app might also be good, since there are a lot of ways one could imagine customizing how they wake up and doing that on a phone might be good. Also when I had my native sleep schedule set on the iPhone, I couldn’t get some things to work on this app; that may have been because I was relatively new at it, but either way it would be neat to see this app I corporate some aspect of the native app or at least have all of its features in addition to its own function. I understand that this app is designed to be a ‘smart’ waking up system that goes off of your body’s rhythms, but it would also be nice to integrate that functionality with just a basic watch alarm. Finally, it would be nice if the alarm shut down once it detects that you’re awake and moving, in case you wake up before the alarm.

I bought AutoSleep, Autowake and HeartWatch as a bundle. While I believe that AutoWake and HeartWatch are excellent apps (and have reviewed them as such), I cannot say the same for AutoWake. You can set AutoWake up to automatically wake you at a certain time for each day of the week. In my case I have it set to wake me at 7:00 Mon-Fri. You can also override this behavior as needed, i.e. I disable the alarm if I am taking a day off work or have a holiday. Its greatest advantage IMHO is that it is supposed to find a time when you are sleeping lightly near to your set alarm time and then tap your wrist to wake you up. It more or less works most of the time. And when it works it works very well. I have AutoWake added as a complication on my primary watch face (my ONLY watch face) as required and my phone sits charging on the end table beside my bed so there should be no reason for failure. But the alarm has failed to go off in the morning 4 times over the past two months. This might not seem terrible, but if you need to catch a plane the next morning - which I sometimes do - I don’t want my alarm to be flakey. What usually, but not always, happens is that the alarm will go off later in the morning, 9:40 and 10:20 AM are two times that I recall specifically. This morning it just didn’t go off at all. I will be deleting this app and falling back to the Apple Watch’s built in alarm.

This app has let me down too many times to list. It seriously fails to function like an alarm should. The widget must be on the face of the watch for it to work (not sure if that’s a requirement for other watch apps but it invites disaster.) It actually goes off at one minute past the time you set it for(?) The automatic mode has sometimes switched itself off. I’ve had it shut off when I pushed snooze and snooze after shut off. It has turned off its automatic mode (changed to manual) after pressing the off button in the morning. The app simply does not give me confidence that it will function when I need it to. The final straw was a complete implosion on the morning after the spring foreword time change. It didn’t go off at all. The alarm time for the next day said 6:00am but the setting “wheel” read 5:00am. It would not correct itself for until I restarted my watch. I wrote the developer and was told that they knew about the problem but didn’t realize the time change happened so early in the US this year! It’s been the second weekend of March since the Bush administration. Don’t waste your money or time here.

This app's user interface is atrocious. It makes no sense, settings are scattered all over, the "Last Alarm" and "Home" screens lack any functionality. On the watch, I have AutoWake in the main screen of the modular face. It has a useless counter that counts up from the time of your alarm (is that supposed to be how long I've been awake?). Sometimes it'll count for days, other times it'll change to counting down until the alarm sounds (moderately helpful). The rest of the watch settings interface is actually decent. But I figured if I could set and forget the alarm I could live with the other UI issues. Unfortunately it never works. Auto schedule turns on and off at will, I don't have weekend alarms set but somehow it sets one on its own, and the alarm has yet to work. Each day this week (6am alarm) the alarm has failed to go off on time. It's only gone off twice - once at 6:18 and another at 6:40. Not helpful! Not surprisingly, it also fails to give the taps to wake you from deep sleep as it advertises. A complete waste of money. AutoSleep is a good app (UI is okay but works better than this), but AutoWake is utterly useless.

**UPDATE** First let me say the developer is very responsive. I’ve changed from 1 star to 5. The issue was that if using the screen time feature in iOS 12, you MUST exclude autowake from being affected. In other words, always allow AutoWake otherwise the alarm will not go off. Since figuring this out, the alarm has reliably gone off as set. Love it. I’ve been using AutoSleep for awhile now. Great app so I jumped on AutoWake based on that experience. It has not lived up to its potential. Been using for a week now. The alarm has yet to go off once. I’ve tried all the features even the safety alarm. Nothing. Watch is series 4 with a full battery when I go to bed. I’m using with the autosleep app as advertised and have read the instructions several times. Still no alarm. The alarm is the whole point and can’t give anything but 1 star. Please fix. I love the idea.

AutoWake. Smart Sleep Alarm Description
2264 chars

AutoWake is the first haptic smart alarm for your Watch.

It can wake you up by tapping you on your wrist using your Watch's haptic engine. You can set it to wake you if you are in light or medium sleep either 15 or 30 minutes before your set alarm time. This helps you feel more refreshed.

There's an

optional sleep cycle buster that you can turn on to give you a light tap at 5 minute intervals in a 15 or 30 minute window before your alarm to take you gently out of deeper sleep.

Not only that but it will even automatically measure your waking pulse just before the alarm sounds, which is a valuable measurement of recovery.

If you ignore the alarm on the Watch, you can also set a safety alarm that will play on your phone. This will speak and/or play a chosen song from your music library.

There's also auto scheduled alarms in case you forget to set your alarm before bed.

If you use AutoSleep our auto sleep tracker, you can use the new ultra smart alarm features. You can now be woken up after a desired amount of sleep, quality sleep or when your sleep bank is back in credit. You can use this in conjunction with a latest wake time if required. You can even set a bedtime reminder that looks at your required sleep, sleep efficiency and latest wake time to give you a reminder for the optimal time to go to bed.

When you turn on your alarm, it can automatically tell AutoSleep that you have gone to bed so that time to fall asleep can be tracked.

If you use Apple HomeKit then you can run scenes for key events in AutoWake like turning off your bedside lamp and setting your room temperature for sleep.

AutoWake requires an Apple Watch running WatchOS 4 or higher. Advanced features requires WatchOS 5.

AutoWake works fine with Do Not Disturb and Theatre/Cinema mode.

AutoWake requires at least a bluetooth connection between your iPhone and your Apple Watch during the time that you are asleep. You can use Flight Mode on your iPhone, but make sure that you turn on bluetooth.
If you user Screen Time, make sure that AutoWake is in your exclude list.

As with all of our apps, there is no tracking, no analytics, no snooping. Your privacy is very important.
