I’ve had to have my sensor replaced twice. The sleep times it reports simple are not true. Somehow it shows that I’m out of bed every morning at 4:30am. Even when I’m sleeping until 8-9am. Support suggested wiping my iPhone deleting the app, all of which I’ve done. Still the sensor cannot even record the time at which I lay on it - how long I lay on it - and when I get off it. If it cannot do that - what does it do?
App shuts off shortly after opening. Probably due to latest OS update.
Dear Dev. I have an older model 3.0 I have no possibilities to download the app for that . Even with US AppStore it’s says the region is no supported by this application . If I’m using this application it’s drive me throw for the older application at the store which gives never a ending loops .. so I cannot use the accessories any more . Please advise !
This app constantly stops working and recording data. There’s no indication as to what’s wrong, or any reminder if you’ve accidentally closed the app to reopen it. Beddit also assumes you’re sleeping even if you’re not (such as reading on your phone in bed). The phone and watch movement data don’t influence Beddit data, which could be really useful in creating more accurate sleep data.
I find all these bad reviews bizarre. The app is fine. It has a very minimalistic design and presents the data collected from the Beddit device in a simple, straightforward manner with no ads or invasions of privacy. It seems like the bad reviews are not really about the app, but rather complaints about the Beddit device itself, mostly based on unrealistic expectations about what is technologically possible in a relatively inexpensive consumer device that monitors whether you are in bed or not and if you are, records and attempts to draw conclusions based on your body movement, heart rate, breaths per second, and room temperature/humidity. True, if you are lying down motionless for a long time on the Beddit device and your heart rate and breaths per second are the same as when you are sleeping, of course it will sometimes assume you are sleeping. Your body doesn’t send out magic sleep signals indicating whether you are truly asleep or not. To have the kind of accuracy many people apparently expect, you would need to have something attached to your head that monitors brain waves like they have at sleep clinics. That kind of technology would cost tens of thousands of dollars. My experience with the Beddit device and app over the past three months is it’s very accurate as to when I go to bed and actually fall asleep. I know this because I always read before I go to sleep. Sometimes I read for five minutes before falling asleep, other times I read for an hour. It always seems to get this right, which I know because I can look back at how many pages I read after going to bed. The same is true of when I wake up in the morning and my body state changes enough for the device to determine I woke up. But if I’m asleep and I wake up for ten minutes during the night without moving significantly, of course it will assume I’m still asleep. Nothing has changed in regard to what the Beddit device is able to monitor (eg heart rate, breathing). You can fool the Beddit device by pretending to be asleep just like you can fool any other human being. It’s also very accurate for wake up times, provided I move and breathe in such a manner that I’m obviously awake. I also see a lot of complaints that it doesn’t tell you things such as whether you are in a light, medium, or deep sleep like the previous version apparently had and other monitors like the Fitbit have. I’m glad it doesn’t use these gimmicks. Unless you are monitoring brain waves, there’s no way for a human or these simple consumer devices to reliably make such determinations. It’s just a bunch of marketing BS. I’d rather have the app provide the data it actually can collect than have it pretend to determine things that cannot be determined without monitoring my brain activity. I see the lack of these phony features as a plus. The app definitely does a good job of tracking my sleep. It’s not perfect or 100% accurate by any means, but there’s no way it could be given the data the device is able to collect. The real strengths of the app are the conclusions it is able to draw based on the data it is does collect or that you provide. For example, in the morning the app asks you to rate how you feel on a scale of 1-10. Over time, it can then draw conclusions and send push notifications at night saying, you should go to bed soon, you feel best when you go to sleep by x time and get x hours of sleep. Or it will tell you, you should go to bed soon, you sleep an average of x more hours when you go to bed at x time. That is very useful information and allows me develop my own personal sleep schedule. I could go on, but this review is already way longer than I intended. It’s just a little frustrating to see so many reviews trashing the app for not being able to do or pretend to do the impossible. The Beddit device definitely is not anywhere near perfect given its technological limitations, but in my opinion it is far better than the Fitbit device I previously used to track my sleep. I hated wearing that thing on my wrist while sleeping, having to manually turn the sleep tracker on and off every night, and the silly conclusions it supposedly was able to make. It’s ridiculous to think that a device can determine your brain activity by monitoring your movement and heart rate. It’s true, the Beddit device and app don’t give me all the info I wish it could, but at least it’s honest about it. It’s a well designed, minimalistic app that provides you the data it is actually able to collect and does a surprisingly good job of monitoring my sleep. Sure, it would be nice if it could monitor my brain activity as well, but we don’t have that kind of consumer technology now and if we did the device would cost so much nobody would buy it. And if they did, people would bitterly complain and say, why can’t we just have a much simpler device for about $150 that merely does what the Beddit device and app are able to do right now. This is still early adopter technology. I would say if you can’t accept it’s limitations, don’t waste your money on it. If you don’t have $150 to spare, then you’re probably better off saving your money and waiting until Apple puts out a new version of the device. But if you have the money, feel the need to track your sleep, and understand that the device and app are doing the best they can without having access to your brain waves, then in my opinion it’s a very worthwhile purchase with a simple, well designed and useful app.
Update 1.0.4 absolutely destroyed the reliability of the Beddit system. Virtually every morning since this update has been an exercise in frustration because of how inaccurate the data capture was overnight.
Of course the hardware is unreliable, hardware usually is. The problem and reason for the 2-star review is the app is built around the hardware working perfectly. It needs: 1) a way to correct inaccurate sleep measurements. 2) to provide notifications that the sleep tracker isn’t working. Very disappointing product, the app could compensate for the device’s flaws but doesn’t. do not recommend.
I had high hopes for this software and sleep tracking device. However, after a year of using it, I’m pretty disappointed. The amount of information available has decreased with each new app release and the device itself keeps needing to be reset to work.
The October update broke the app, now no data is logged. My sleep monitor is basically a paperweight. Support for this is practically non-existent. Please fix.
How is it possible to update the app and make it much less functional with less information than the previous app. Unbelievable!
