For several years this was my very favorite app tied to my Apple Watch. I urged people to use it and really enjoyed so many features. Every update seemed to make is worse. The snooze function didn’t work for a long time, now is better, but is so glitchy. Used to be able to start from watch or phone - now has to be by watch. I change the alarm time on the phone and used always immediately correspond ont he watch, now about half the time it doesn’t change on the watch or goes to some other unselected time. Have to change it several times to make it stick. Used to always immediately update phone with sleep stats once its “woke” and now doesn’t update phone unless I close the app and restart in on my phone. Last few months my sleep stats are abruptly and drastically different (much worse) than years previous. While its possible that my sleep has deteriorated (even pre-COVID) - I don’t have any trust in the data any more given all the issues.
Paid for the full version and have been pretty disappointed for over a year now. Horrible AI to understand when you are awake vs asleep. I can imagine that it’s determination between light sleep and deep sleep is little more than a guess. You can get HR data into the app from any smart watch that connects to Apple Health (my garmin works fine -fitbits don’t allow this) but I don’t see any changes in its sleep stage timeline from before HR is included in its data. Not worth the paid version in my opinion.
There’s this weird bug that happens when you leave the app while it’s on, or even when you lock your phone while it’s on. Fix it! Please! I’d like to use it without leaving my phone on all night.
I have been using this app for years now. I love it but recently it has totally stopped recording my sleep. The audio which I would love to use has absolutely never worked. So, I would say this app is worth it when it is working.
I’ve tried this app for a couple nights now. Not one single bit of data was collected. I wore my watch both nights and tried automatic mode and also tried entering in my Sleep start. Still Nothing. I went through the entire set up again to make sure I allowed all Permissions, still nothing. The interface also takes a minute to figure out. Cancelled my subscription and will continue to look for a better sleep tracker. I really wanted this one to work but unfortunately it didn’t.
Not very accurate and the free version very restricted: expensive otherwise.
It never worked even though I did everything the help desk told me to do but it never worked!
Tried it, liked it, paid for the upgrade and all of a sudden it stopped recording and would get stuck on screens. Like the watch and phone were not syncing. After a week canceled the subscription .. what a waste.
Lousy app. To view history you have to pay. Other apps are not similar and record sleep much more accurately such as sleep++. I have had a fit bit and the the sleep++ that record my sleep pretty close to each other while pillow was way off in comparison. I saw no value in paying for what is free.
The cool thing about this app is it lets you see your sleep phases and how long it took you to sleep. But besides that, lots of the key features don’t work. I tried the automatic mode a few times and not on a single day did it work. It thinks I didn’t sleep at all. The smart alarm either wakes you up AT the time you set it, or wakes you up 30 minutes before you want it to! 30 minutes is so important to my sleep and I don’t want anything, especially a app designed for sleeping, to take that much time away. Also when the alarm goes off it’s super hard to turn off. I had to turn off on my watch, go to my phone because it’s also ringing, then turn it off on my watch again. The UI is not very clear on Apple Watch. It’s not obvious what the time you set means and even what “start” means.
