I did like this app very much and have used it for several years. But now there is a permanent ad right in the middle of the report. Is that really necessary???? So my rating had fallen from 5 to 2 stars.
I’ve been able to improve my sleep, and overall health thanks to this app. Been using it for several years now.
This app has been helpful to me, but there are a lot of ways it could be improved upon. For instance, the value they offer for their premium level membership really doesn’t provide much over what their free level provides. I paid for the premium level for a year, and had it set to end instead of renew when it expired, and when it expired I barely noticed the difference. It is helpful for giving a general estimate of how long and how well you slept, but it gets it wrong a lot. And I do wear an Apple Watch to bed. Most mornings I have to edit what the app determined my sleep periods were because I’m like “no I was not asleep at that time, and I WAS asleep at that time.” But, at least they give me the option to edit, perhaps knowing their technology has limitations. The app gives a three digit score each morning, assigning a number value to how well you slept. Fine. It’s not my favorite rubric but whatever. However, if you sleep less but have fewer interruptions in your sleep, you get a higher score than if you woke up for a while and then go back to sleep. This seems totally backwards to me. If I wake up at 7 AM and I know I haven’t had enough sleep and so I fall back asleep by 7:20am and then I wake up at 9 AM, the app tells me I’ve gotten WORSE rest than if I just woke up at 7am with not enough sleep. How does that make sense? It’s certainly not how my body and mind feels it. This is not just a one off, it’s a consistent feature of the app. Every morning, there’s a report telling me how I shared in a bunch of different categories against other people, my own age and I don’t really like that. Because I know it means they’re taking my personal health data and sharing it. I get that this is an unavoidable feature of much of the world right now, but I don’t have to like it and I will continue saying that I don’t like it. In short, a lot of the benefits I get from this app, I would probably get from literally any other sleep app. And this one does have a lot of features for free.
I’ve been using this for years and liked it, but the newest iteration has replaced half the screen with unclosable/collapsible ads. This morning it advertised a gay male dating app at me which could not be more inappropriate for me. If the goal was to get me to stop using your app without paying for premium by spamming me with offensive ads, it worked.
I originally liked this app but there have been way too many times where I wake up in the morning and it’s no longer tracking my sleep for some reason. Not even that it stopped the tracker for me, but it’s like I didn’t even start it at all. I ultimately decided to delete this app because of this.
My main problem with this app is that it does not appear to monitor “deep sleep.” I have to rely on Apple’s native app for that. For myself this seems to be the single most important parameter. Today I got a message from the Sleepwatch app saying that it had detected a degradation of my sleep quality. I think this is because both my respiratory rate and my heart dip rate moved in the wrong direction. And I think this is because I ran nearly twenty miles yesterday. My body was in deep recovery mode. The thing is I had the best night’s sleep I’ve had in months last night. The Apple native app showed more deep sleep than any night in the last year. The SleepWatch app is blind to that. They need to tweak their algorithms.
Love the info it gives me but having to do the tags every night/morning one by one is tedious. Would love to see a recurring save for the ones I have over and over. Also more detail options for tags, like how you felt before bed (exhausted/good/etc)
Great app; just which there was an option to automatically repeat certain tags. Too much water time tagging the same tags every single night that never change
This was a 5 star app until about a week ago. IF it tracks any sleep, it's a maximum of about 90 minutes either right away at night or like, the last 90 minutes before I get up in the morning. Why am I paying for something that doesn't work?
As of today, when I click on todays summary, I cannot see the edges of the charts. They are truncated off the page. Ex. Can see the heart rate graph, the dots only, the numbers labeling the HR are off the right of the screen. Cannot read the data. Please fix. This just happened after todays update. (Sept 7, 2023)
