10 Feb How to Use Your Apple Watch to Track Your Sleep?
Don’t get me wrong, I would love having a mechanical watch in this day and age even though I would have to tweak the crown from time to time. However, I also value technology and in this day and age, smartwatches have become a mainstream thing.
Sure, some watch purists may not like the idea of the new-age product, but I do see it as something that provides features to certain individuals that one just cannot find in your traditional watch.
Sleep is Important
That being said, sleep is important for humans. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, humans should sleep at least 7-8 hours per night to ensure that the body is able to do its processes while we are in slumber.
Unfortunately, as much as our bodies need that many hours to sleep every night, not all of us have the luxury of getting that. As a person that wants to get healthy, it would best if there is a way for you to track your sleep every single night. Can that be done?
Actually, there is a way for you to track your sleep and you will have to purchase an Apple Watch for you to do that.
In today’s article, I will tell you how to use your apple watch to track your sleep habits so that you will know how well you’ve been sleeping.
Keep in mind that for tracking your sleep habits, you will have to be comfortable with the idea of wearing your Apple Watch as you are sleeping. That being said, to track your sleep, you must download an appropriate app for that.
One of the most highly-recommended apps for tracking your sleep is AutoSleep. The reason why I recommend this is that it is one of the most accurate apps for doing it and it has a very nice and intuitive interface that anyone can use- with no technical expertise required.
Once you’ve tethered your Apple Watch with your iPhone, power up the application so that the sleep tracking can begin. This application is pretty good in what it does and will provide you with different graphs that show your sleep quality, cycles, and so much more.
Now, there are some people that have qualms about this. One common reason why people are not okay with wearing the Apple Watch to bed is due to battery life. Although the company has made strides in improving the device’s battery, it may not last for a long time, especially if it is doing something in the background.
Well, the good thing is that if you use the AutoSleep application, you can actually just charge your device while you sleep but before you do so, you set a certain time so that the watch can wake you up via its alarm functionality.
This way, you can still track your sleeping habits without actually wearing the watch. There are other applications out there that do nearly the same thing such as Sleep Genius, Beddit, Sleep++ and many more.
