  1. Out of bed functionality?

    Often, when I can't sleep, I get up out of bed. This unfortunately causes the app to register this as R.E.M. sleep since there are no sounds. It would be really cool to have an "out of bed" button that either keeps it as 'awake' or even have another band above wake for 'out of bed'.

      We working on a major update that will introduce an improved and much more accurate way to detect and analyse sleep, including the ability to manually set “Awake” periods during the night.

      • Please enable visual soundwave for each recording

        If you do not know what I mean, please refer to "Sleep as Android"
        Most of time, the recording is useless, I would have to listen the all recordings only to to find whether I spoke while sleeping. But if each recording has a visual sound wave, I can just listen to these with obvious wave, which could same so much time for me.

        • Auto sleep/wake detection with auto stop/start.

          Automatic session stop when you get out of bed and start walking around for a period of time (longer than I takes to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night), so if you forget to stop a session it doesn't keep recording for hours, adding wake time to your sleep stats. Also, if you stop a session in the morning, then fall back asleep, it would be great if Pillow could detect this and resume sleep recording.

            Fully automatic sleep detection and tracking using the Apple Watch or any other wearable that provides heart rate data and steps along with other metrics, is on our roadmap for the near future. We also add the ability to edit and merge sleep sessions so that will handle the use cases you mention :)

          • Smarter Naps

            I think that the nap setting should be improved by starting the nap timer once the app detects the person has fallen asleep. It takes people a while to fall asleep and if it takes 10 minutes to fall asleep, you would be getting 10 minutes for your nap, not the full 20. If this tweak is applied, the full nap would be achieved. I believe it would benefit everyone.

              Apple Music offers a Great selection of sleep and relaxing music. It would be nice to choose from the library.

                  Make a setting so that it will wake you up after a certain number of sleep hours. NOT counting the time registered as awake.

                    As someone who travels regularly internationally, I would like to see improvements in terms of timezones within the app. If the app could provide data on how the jet-lag affects us all the better!

                    • Automatic sleep tracking every night!

                      There is a new app in the store called Auto Sleep that automatically tracks your sleep every night, even if you forget to open the app before you fall asleep!

                      It uses the motion sensors on the watch, so even if you fell asleep before you remembered to start the app, when you wake up in the morning and open the app, it will still upload your movement data from the night and give you an analysis.

                      So the only time you have to remember to open the app before you fall asleep is if you want the sound recording…

                          Jawbone, Fitbit, etc. all have smart wake up technology. This may be the most important feature of a sleep monitoring app. The smart wake up does not work with the Apple Watch. Please work on this and you will have the BEST app!

                            Smart wake up relies on real-time data processing that can only be done on the iPhone at the moment, since third-party Apple Watch apps cannot run continuously in the background. In that regard, we don’t have much data to work with compared to sleep tracking with the iPhone. However we are working an big update to that will also improve Smart Wakeup on the Apple Watch as well. Stay tuned!

                              • Integrate Pillow with Fitbit, so sleep tracking is made via fitbit sensors (motion + HR) so there's no need to have the phone inside bed

                                Integrate Pillow with Fitbit, sleep tracking is made via fitbit sensors (motion + HR) so there's no need to have the phone inside bed (since its unconfortable and dangerous). And make use of Fitbit's silent alarm (wrist vibration) when Pillow detects a light stage sleep (sadly fitbit doesnt have a smart alarm and they dont seem to see this as a feature in the near future). Thanks in advance. There's a BIG community looking for this integration, see: https://community.fitbit.com/t5/Feature-Suggestions/Alarms-that-wake-you-more-naturally/idi-p/4609/page/4

                                  Some of the natural sounds in the sleep aid are very effective; why not add a recording of a purring cat? Those nights when my cat comes and purrs by me at bedtime she certainly relaxes me and sends me off to sleep.

                                      This is part of a bigger update that is in the works. We really want to make it easier to access a specific date. Thank you so much for your patience.

                                    • Along with % show the hours of sleep spent

                                      While % looks good. Since u already have the numbers please put in the hours please. For some hours look better than %.

                                        • Sleep aid restart if woken up

                                          When I wake up in the middle of the night I'm extremely sensitive to sounds and it takes me a while to go back to sleep. If there was an option for restarting the sleep sounds then it would really help me get a better night's rest.
