  • Horrible User Interface

    By Side31
    Very unintuitive user interface. Constantly sets alarm for 24 hours from now and make you LOOOONG press to cancel. Most features are behind a paywall. Horrible. Uninstalled after 1 day. Save you money.
  • Frustrating at times

    By Fe Ri Ke
    Very interesting when it works, but I sometimes can’t start a session from the watch. Just nonfunctional. Sometimes a session ends and won’t fully process the data. Restarting the watch and phone may solve the problems, but that’s a nuisance! I must say that when I left a 2 Star review, they responded very quickly via email and told me how to get help through the app. Very active app support. That’s great.
  • Great app

    By EHT Tripp2
    Fantastic. Worked a lot better than I expected.
  • Bugs

    By omid223
    Too much fumbling around with the watch app to get it to just start recording a sleep session. Really wish it would just learn my heart data or time I’m typically going to bed and be more smart about when to record my sleep data. Too manual and too buggy.
  • Lots of sync issues

    By Mruseless
    Many others have complained about this. Sync between Apple watch and iPhone is very buggy. About 20% of the time only part of the data syncs. If you start a sleep session on your watch but end it from the iPhone, the data sync gets screwed up. And to start it from your watch, you have to have the iPhone app both active and open (phone unlocked). Good ideas but poor implementation. I will revise my review if these things get fixed. Update 2017 Sept. sync still very buggy and will not complete unless watch face is lit up. Update Nov 2017. Now the app will not start from my watch. Not sure the cause, if I reboot the watch it sometimes works. Not sure why I’ve stuck with it even this long.
  • Loved it BUT...

    By Cmhorses
    I have the upgrade version. I was loving this app until it quit analyzing the data on my Apple Watch, which in turn caused it to have no data on my iPhone. It stopped 11-12/13 night. I deleted the app and reinstalled both on the iPhone & Apple Watch. Please fix it & I will change my rating. Otherwise I would have rated this a five star.
  • What happened?

    By Misyangel
    I’ve had this app for months and have enjoyed using it to track sleep. However the last 3 days it’s been data error and I have no analytics for my sleep (I use this with my Apple watch). I have restarted my iPhone 7+ and watch over and over per the help section and it is still not working. Please say there is a fix in the works?
  • Great app!

    By Nataliedance24
    I have always wanted to track how long I sleep. People say wear a Fitbit or type of watch but I don’t like having things on my wrist. This is a great app! It does everything you want.
  • Very good!

    By Kaiwal
    I’ve been using this app for a a few months (with premium mode) and I got to say it’s very helpful! The alarms aren’t like apple and they start off slow so you wake up the best. I recommend this app and I also recommend the premium version of this app! It’s great for school.
  • Not entirely accurate and not completely compatible with Watch

    By Uspork
    This is mostly a very good app for tracking my sleep but the accuracy has room for improvement. I would see an entire hour of being “awake” while I knew I was asleep and vice versa (I have the watch). Only the sleep analysis without alarm can be initiated on the watch, if I were to choose power nap or use the alarm function I’d have to open the app on the iPhone first and the manually sync the session with Watch which I find inconvenient. I would love to be able to start a session with alarm clock on the watching without using the phone.
