Most of us know them: the apps for your smartphone to analyze your sleep and give you insight into your sleepiness and sleep quality. Yet, these sleeping apps are not always as convenient. Often we charge our mobile at night or have a sleeper who does not want to enjoy the app. Additionally, the measurements of an app on your phone are not always accurate. You must put your cellphone in or beside your bed, which makes the measurement less reliable, especially when you’re not just in bed. That’s why I’ve put 3 sleep apps for you, which can be used on a smartwatch.
1. AutoSleep (Apple)
The AutoSleep app lets you analyze your sleep at night. Keep your Apple Watch asleep and the app is exactly how you slept that night. In the morning you will see a chart showing the different sleep cycles that you walked through at night and how your sleep quality was during those cycles.
2. Sleep ++ (Apple)
Another app for the Apple Watch that analyzes your sleep at night is Sleep ++ . Enter when you go to sleep and when you wake up the times, so the app can accurately indicate what your sleep rhythm is. In addition, the app measures how quiet (or not) you, using special motion sensors
sleep at night
3. Drag as Android (Android)
Android also has an app for the smartwatch: the drag as Android . With this app, you get insight into your sleep pattern through different metrics. The app can even respond to sound. Do you talk a lot to sleep? Then the app takes up sound (above a certain volume), so you can hear exactly what you’ve been telling in your dreams .
Tips to save battery
Of course, a smartwatch can not last forever without power. Also your smartwatch needs to be charged occasionally. And of course, that can not be the case if you have him around your wrist at night. With the tips below, you can do a little longer with your battery.
– Put your smartwatch at flight mode at night. This allows you to use the sleeping app , but do not get any messages or applets. This will save you battery and you will not be disturbed by incoming bees. Even if you do not use a sleep app, but the smartwatch is about to sleep (or in your bedroom), it is advisable to use the airplane mode to prevent your night’s rest from being disturbed by the wifi and other messages and signals from your smartwatch (and smartphone).
– Charge your smartwatch before going to bed, so before you begin to brush your teeth. In the morning you leave him before you start shower and breakfast. When finished, the battery is charged to use your smartwatch during the daytime.
The above tips should be sufficient. But of course you can always take the charger for your safety in your bag!
