Apple Watch: possibly sleep tracking app
Posted by: pqrst
Date: June 27, 2020 06:21PM
With the possibility of a sleep app for the watch, I see that notes that the app will prompt for a recharge come morning. How much time does Apple think people have in the morning? Personally, I have an hour. In my experience (with series 0 and a series 5 watches and a 12 watt charger is not enough time for a full day charge. My opinion.

I charge mine before I go to bed and then put it on.

I use a sleep tracker app already. AW4 gets charged during breakfast and while I’m in the shower. Wear all day. Since the work from home period, I have been forgetting to charge it in the morning. It’s better now that work has started up again. It might last 2 days, but that’s pushing it.

The 1-1.5 hour charge in the morning is enough for the whole day.

My AW3's battery used to last 4 days when new. It's at the point where I get a bit more than a day's juice from a full charge if I use it to track a workout and about 2 days if I don't track a workout.

It also charges more slowly. Takes 40m to an hour to top off if I charge every morning, takes nearly 2 hrs if I skip a day. Used to top off in about 20m when it was new.

So, sleep tracking is probably not in the cards for this watch. I doubt that it has enough battery-life for that. I could get a new battery, but the Apple Stores are closed and I'm not mailing it in.

I charge my Watches twice a day- once in the morning upon rising and completing my morning routine, and again at night before going to be, during my evening routine.

My Watch then never falls below 50%, and most times not even to that point.

Then it doesn't need a full hour to charge.

If I was short on time, I'd just put it on a charger midday.

When I was doing sleep tracking with Sleep++, this worked with my S2 and earlier Watches which didn't have the battery capacity of my S5.

I stopped using the app because the info didn't really help me.

So bring on a native Sleep app or not.

Just don't include an oximeter in the next version.

Thanks for all the redponses. My normal day runs from 7am - 9pm. And is on the go with no chance to charge. Usually go to bed at 10pm and up at 600. So if it needs at least a four hour charge (mine seems to) from around 25% to 100% Then I was trying figure out if i used all night when could I charge it. Ymmv.

My mileage does indeed vary. My Apple Watch Series 3 takes less than 1 hour to go from 25% to 90% and that charge lasts more than a day.

My big problem is putting it on the charger too close to bedtime and falling asleep without wearing it.

I bought a cheap ebay charging cable to put near my desktop iMac so when I am doing the forum and facebook and email - it will could be charging.

I put it on the bedside charger about 2 hours ago - I guess I should go put it on after I hit "post message".

Depending on how quickly you fall asleep, you could try setting the timer on your watch before putting it on the charger.

It may not wake you once you're out, but it could remind you before going on the nod.
