For many Apple Watch users, Sleep++ is the go-to app when it comes to tracking and analyzing sleeping patterns. Sleep analysis is a feature that’s weirdly missing from the Apple Watch, and Sleep++ is filling the gap perfectly. The latest update to this app, dubbed Sleep++ 2.0, now adds a lot of interesting new features and a more detailed analysis.
Keeping Track of Your Sleep
Sleep++ 2.0 is compatible with the new watchOS 2. It tracks your sleep using a variety of sensors built into the Apple Watch. It measures not only the duration of your sleep, but also the quality and other parameters that you will find useful.
Some of the new features introduced in this version include:
- Better sleep analysis with improved algorithm
- Streamlined integration with Health
- Support for time zones
- Improved Night Detail view
The improved algorithm in particular allows the app to categorize your sleep more meticulously. Instead of just broad groups, Sleep++ 2.0 can now track your sleeping pattern down to the very last detail. For example, it can separate your best sleep from a restless one in its report.
There is not much change in the app’s user interface. Sleep++ 2.0 is designed to be very straightforward and easy to understand. You may find its user interface to be a bit old fashioned compared to some of the more recent apps, but believe me when I say that Sleep++ 2.0 works really well.
Better User Interaction
One of the things I didn’t really like about the original Sleep++ is the need to tap a button to let the app know that I’m going to bed and when I wake up in the morning. This often results in incorrect data and bad analysis.
The new Night Trimming feature in Sleep++ 2.0 helps keep the analysis on point. Whenever I forgot to tap the button in the app, I can manually trip the night and still get a good analysis of my sleep in return.
On top of these features, Sleep++ 2.0 dumps the data it collects to the Health database. Other apps can interact with the same data as well, which means we may see other features being added to the whole system in the future. The same has been done in Pedometer++, an accurate step-counter app from the same developer.
Sleep++ 2.0 is available on the App Store for free. Give it a try and you’ll be able to track your sleep with immense accuracy. Don’t forget to let us know what you think about the app in the Comments section below!
