The fix: When you wake up in the morning, toss the watch on the charger while you shower, eat breakfast and so on. After 30 minutes or so, it should be have enough juice for the next 24 hours. Alternately, consider charging it while you're getting ready for bed, reading or whatever. The only catch is you have to remember to put it back on before nodding off. Sleep Watch is a good app, but it's the most expensive, and its sleep-activity graph isn't very helpful. For the past few nights I've been fiddling with three sleep apps for Watch OS. There are others, certainly, but I feel these are pretty representative of what's out there. Here's a quick overview of each.
AutoSleep ($2.99, £2.99, AU$4.49), Tracking sleep means wearing your watch to bed, right? Not necessarily: AutoSleep works even if you don't wear it some nights, When that happens, it starts tracking your hours as soon iphone xs max tough neon - green/pink neon as you put the watch on the charger, then stops when you put the watch back on in the morning or you first use your phone, Of course, that's just time tracking; the real benefits come from wearing your watch, When you do that, the app measures sleep hours and quality, restlessness, heart rate and more, And then it presents all that data using Apple Health-style visuals..
Sleep Tracker ($1.99, £1.99, AU$2.99). The least expensive sleep app (though only by $1) is also my favorite, if only because I find its presentation of sleep data to be clearer than that of AutoSleep. At a glance, you get to see how much light sleep you got, how much deep sleep, how long it took you to fall asleep and so on. Another perk: a "smart" alarm can wake you up when the app detects you're in a light sleep phase, as opposed to your bedside alarm that might wrestle you from a deep slumber -- and leave you feeling angry and groggy. (No? Just me?).
There's also a section called 3-Day Sleep Charge, which is presented as a "fun way iphone xs max tough neon - green/pink neon to track your sleep debt." But most sleep experts believe you can't "catch up" on lost sleep; it's better to sleep the same amount every night, So the very notion of this feature is flawed, Sleep Watch simply doesn't go as, er, deeply into your sleep habits as other apps, and therefore I recommend trying the others first, Have you found an Apple Watch-friendly sleep app you like better than any of these?

A Fitbit can track your sleep, so why not Apple's smartwatch? Turns out it can. Here's how to make it happen. I'm tired a lot these days, and during my last physical, my doctor asked if I was getting enough sleep. Why, of course I'm getting enough.. hmm, wait a second, am I?. There's a related question: Am I getting good sleep? Well, I have an Apple Watch, and it can track my steps, heart rate, time spent standing and all that, so maybe I'll just start wearing it to bed and get some answers.
