Automatic mode also need alarm clock.
Being able to set the alarm when using automatic mode is a must - Fitbit can do it!!
Maybe with some notification of battery level few hour before sleep:
1. If battery is extremely low - to have enough time to charge it..
2. Or by some algoritm few hours before will be “the best time for us to go sleep” when we want to achieve the time we set up (e.g. when having 8 hour, alarm at 7, the best to go sleep is at 23, so notification 1 or 1,5 hour before?)
3. Or automatic mode as with an alarm - to set up how much earlier before going to bed is the time we would like to get notification to put a phone to charger next to bed and maybe (if needed) when doing it - just press a button to corfirm the automatic mode for next day. At least this option even not totally automatic, will be acceptable I think for more people while trying to solve it better.
4. Or plus option with some window when pluging a phone - when I think I will get to bed (maybe accurate/approximate choosing time) and possibility to chose between - wait for me to start or start analyzing “without” my intention = automatically. It depends what would be easier for you now to start with; if - to wait to hear “breathing” close to phone -> starting or just start on the time set up by user even maybe sometimes someone will go sleep earlier or later, so some start of sleeping will be missing.. or the person will start it itself, when nit forgetting.
At least is worthy to try it even some things will not be 100% thinked up. By this way we could try to avoid a battery death before morning - which is I think the reason why this option is still not available - because manually setting up the phone for whole night analysing is in this case the basic princip.
Some beta version will be a kind of promise or important step for a customers for which this is important - to not left the app. Other things will be solved by time...with a help of feedback.
Some more confirmation windows making the phone ready for analyzing will be okay I think for many people who need this at least for beginnig.
P.S. not everything has to be perfect at the beginning, we know that. Nothing will ever be perfect. But it’s great you are doing this!
the best time to go to sleep to achieve the hour we set up - for each day - automatic alarm for next day or just also set up when to automatic remide) if could be possible - at least is worthy to try it even some things will not be 100% thinked up. But this way we could try to avoid a battery death before morning - which is I think the reason why this option is still not available - because manually setting up the phone for whole night analysing is in this case (battery eating)
Also I do. I have a diseas of sleep and many times I just fall asleep 3 seconds before I push start! Than in the morning it’s really too late... the best will be the option of automatic mode even for every day different - when paying premium. As someone wrote - if not will have to use alarm clock build in iOS - where this is possible.
Need alarm in auto mode. Happy to pay the subscription if this is added. Have 7 days left of trial. Please add.
I would love to have automatic if mode but still have both the alarm feature, as well as the ability to tell it when I go to bed for increased accuracy and to turn on the noise tracking if desired.
Premium owner here. I have to wake up for work, as most of the wage earning world does. If I forget to set pillow application to sleep mode manually, then I don’t wake up on time. I am going to have to return to using the iOS built in alarm because Pillow does not have a recurring Target Wake time that can be set and forget. I really love the sleep analysis that pillow provides, but the lack of This feature is a game killer for me.

I support this 100%!
Yes definitely please add this. I’ve cancelled my subscription because I assumed this was already available. Will be happy to re-join if this functionality is added. Otherwise it’s a great app!
Please add an alarm to the automatic mode! I would love to have an alarm wake me up during a light part of my sleep cycle while in automatic mode.

This is a must have! Id like to know more about my sleeps with an alamar without the need of another app to wake me up
Yes! I also bought the premium app because I thought that the smart alarm could be used in the automatic setting. I’m quite disappointed in this.
I really hope this becomes a feature soon!!! It makes it so much easier to just go to sleep knowing I will be woken at the right time. Trying to plan is tricky sometimes because you don’t fall asleep right away.
The automatic function is fantastic, but when I turn on the full mode with alarm, it kills the battery on my watch so quickly.
The idea of an alarm that can have a window to wake a person up around a light sleep cycle is fantastic. If that function could be added to the automatic mode for the watch that would be much appreciated.

PLz, add some ore functions.
Great app! Please add the alarm function to automatic mode.
This is why I got this app. I thought this was already a feature!!
Oh shoot. I just paid for this app thinking that the automatic + alarm was a premium feature. It’s so obvious that this should be a thing, I’m baffled it isn’t.
Please add the alarm function (using the last alarm setting would be okay). This would greatly improve the functionality of the Apple Watch.
