apps keeps track of how long and how "good" we sleep, we have seen a number of by now. Sleep Cycle, which gives us a measure of the quality of sleep and awakens us when we are most alert, is an example for the Iphone. For those who want to measure sleep quality with an Apple Watch on your arm, for even more accurate results, is for example the Sleep ++.
But they all have in common that they require part of the user. All they want us activate the sleep tracking before we fall asleep, and that we will remember to turn it off when we wake up. Not very complicated, but it can be enough for us to stop using the app.
Take on the clock – ready
Auto Sleep is enough to wear Apple Watch when we go to bed, take care of the rest technique. No button press to activate, and we need to remember to turn it off when we wake up in the morning. An easier way to keep track of your sleep than this is unlikely.
Auto Sleep costs 30 SEK and we we load the app for Iphone. The app uses algorithms introduced with the Health Kit in IOS, and retrieves motion data from Apple Watch as we carry on the arm while we sleep. With the operating data can be auto sleep then figure out whether we are asleep or not, and how "good" we sleep.
All that is required is thus only that we have the watch on your wrist. There's even an app to watch the Olympics, but it reflects only part of the contents of the iOS app and is no need to install.
Auto Sleep notice when we fall asleep and when we wake up. When we wake up, we get a detailed view of, among other things, how long we slept, how much of it was deep sleep, how long it took to fall asleep and how our heart rate was during the night.
For the most part takes care of this myself very well, but we can also help the app along by telling it when we wake up. We do this by enabling a feature that sleep tracking is automatically terminated as soon as we move our iPhone in the morning, simply so that there is no doubt that we are actually awake. We can also tell the app when we fall asleep by adding a "Lights off" widget. This provides more accurate results, but like I said not necessary.
A good idea to help the app a little further along the way is to tell it when we do not sleep. If we never sleep during the day, say between 10:00 and 22:00, we can tell the Auto Sleep so that it avoids registering "sleep" during the hours we are sitting still at your computer during the day.
