How could we improve Pillow?

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.

We’re excited to let you know that the latest major update of Pillow gives you the option to setup alarms using the haptic feedback (vibrations) on the Apple Watch.

To achieve this, we had to use a special background mode that does consume more battery during the night. If you wish to keep battery consumption to a bare minimum, you can you always turn off that feature from the Settings dialog in Pillow on the Apple Watch:
Open Pillow on the Apple Watch > Scroll down and tap on “Settings” > De-select: “Apple Watch Haptics”.

Our warmest wishes for a healthy and successful new year with Pillow!

    Absolutely! Please bring a haptic Pillow alarm on the watch alone. I love the wake up option, but my wife’s doesn’t, as I get up several hours earlier than her. Please make this option a priory. Thank you!

    I think the problem is it takes up a lot of battery. Sleep cycle does have this feature but also uses at times 70 plus percent of the watch battery. I stopped using it all together because you can’t change it. If that is the case then to me it isn’t worth it. Just set your alarm on your Apple Watch and have it on silent mode. That is my work around anyway.

    I need this feature. I will not be able to use this app until I can use silent phone & vibrating watch.

    Apparently Sleep Cycle added this feature. Must be possible now...

    Yes, can you add this? That would make this my app of choice and I’d pay for the premium version. Otherwise, as good as the app looks, it’s really of little use to me. Thank you.

    agree with others! This is really a deal-breaker for me - if I can't use a silent alarm so I don't wake up my wife, I won't use this app.

    yes with smart alarm from the apple watch please - i'd pay for that smart alarm from watch motion!

    What about sending Push Messages from the phone to the Watch, to geht a Vibration?
    Like a Message or WhatsApp pops Up?

    Yes!!! Please do this soon with a smart alarm feature. This is the only thing I miss about sleep tracking with my Jawbone Up.

    Really would love this feature to not wake my wife when I get up early to go to the gym etc
