  1. Wake up with apple watch

    We should be able to be awake directly through the Apple Watch...
    With ringtone or vibrations or both

      Hello,
      We’re exploring ways to bring haptic feedback alarms on the Apple Watch and we’d like to hear your opinion about it.

      We would deeply appreciate if you could spend a few minutes to take a short survey we have prepared. It will help us learn more about how you view this and other features that we are considering for the future of Pillow on the following link:

      Thank you!

    • Need vibrations Apple Watch

      it is much muy easier and quiet to wake up with vibrations in most of the times for not disturbing others. it’s even more comestible and efficient most of the times i guess. so i suggest a variety of different options of vibrations, in my preference for the apple watch. with an option that make you sure that there will be no sounds that may disturb.

      • Could the night screen on the phone show a dim, large clock as an option?

        I use the app every night. I'd rather also use the phone screen as a night time dim clock with big numbers so I don't need glasses. As an example, something like the app "Nite Time" - and even when there is no alarm set. Keep up the great work on this app, I'm a fan.

        • Improve Data Summary so that it is useful

          Current data summary is very awkwardly shown. I find myself moving from screen to screen and I feel like I am zoomed in visually and even all the specific data I want is on different screens so I have to swipe back and forth to get there.

          Here’s what I want as a daily summary:
          Automatic default to day view of last night with following information:

          1) visual graph- check
          2) in bed- xx:xx to xx:xx (missing)
          3) time in bed- x hrs and x minutes
          4) time asleep- check
          3) quality of sleep- % or other metric and add…

            Thank you for your feedback. We’re working on a major redesign of Pillow that will improve on the way the daily sleep analysis appears.

          • Sync with MyFitnessPal

            Hi, would love to see how diet affects sleep (not everything syncs through apple health)

              Add the pillow app as a widget for quick opening of app and favorite setup for sleep.

              • Don't require me to say when I am going to sleep.

                When I go to bed I am often very wound up. I read or watch ASMR videos to fall asleep. I need an app to notice when I fall asleep and not require me to tell it since I very rarely am able to fall asleep when I decide to.

                  Thank you for your feedback. We are exploring ways to do automatic sleep tracking. However for technical reasons the available data we have less data to work with so we must make sure our sleep analysis remains reliable and accurate.

                • QR Code Alarm Deactivation

                  Add the ability to deactivate alarms by scanning a specified QR Code or Barcode. At the moment I have to use Alarmy along side pillow and would be great if this feature was added.

                  • Silent phone, vibrating watch alarm option.

                    Use a vibrate alarm on the watch instead of an audio alert on the phone so you only wake up one person and not the whole room.

                    • Manual sleep log

                      It's a good app but the biggest con is that you can't manually log sleep sessions.
                      Sometimes I forget to start the app before I fall asleep, and I often stop it in the morning and then fall asleep again.

                      I manually log my sleep quality as Sleep Notes. I don't need a graph to show me how I slept. It's all the other factors and statistics that are interesting to me.

                        Thank you for your feedback. A manual log is beyond the scope of Pillow but we are working on a completely automatic mode that will detect when you fall asleep and when you wake up. In addition to that, you will be able to edit any detected sessions.

                      • Detect when you get up

                        I would like the app to show you on the graph when you get out of bed during the night

                                Pillow’s sleep analysis algorithm relies in part on motion data acquired by the Apple Watch. The only way to retrieve those data is to explicitly start/stop a session. Also, the microphone, speaker and haptic feedback on the Apple Watch cannot be used by third-party apps that run in the background, like Pillow due to watchOS limitations so we must use iPhone’s. All the above reasons force us to require that Pillow is open on the iPhone and then press Start on Pillow on the Apple Watch. Hopefully, those restrictions will be lifted in future updates of watchOS, and then we will be more than happy to simplify.

                                That said, we are also working on a completely automatic mode but we have to make sure it doesn’t sacrifice any of the reliability and accuracy of the sleep analysis.

                                    If the Allen aid is on non-stop, it seems to stop abruptly just before the alarm starts. It would be nice to have:

                                    1. Play sleep aid non stop,
                                    2. Alarm on 30 min window,
                                    3. Sleep aid fade to alarm when time is right

                                    Thanks!

                                      • Bluetooth issues

                                        When the alarm his off, it sounds on my Bluetooth connected speakers instead than in my phone as I would like it to... Is there a way to do this without disabling Bluetooth ( which will not allow me to use the Apple watch)?

                                        I've woken up the entire neighborhood several times now :)

                                          I want to start a sleep session with my Apple Watch without connect him to the iPhone (activate smart alarm on the Watch)

                                            Hello,

                                            We’re exploring ways to bring haptic feedback alarms on the Apple Watch which would also simplify the way you start a sleep session without needing the iPhone to press start.

                                            We would deeply appreciate if you could spend a few minutes to take a short survey we have prepared. It will help us learn more about how you view this and other features that we are considering for the future of Pillow on the following link:
