Sleep++ 2.0 upgrades sleep tracking with the Apple Watch

Sleep++ (Featured Image)

For anyone looking to get better tracking and a bird’s eye view of your sleep habits, be sure to check out Sleep++ 2.0 available today. This latest version brings in a major sleep analysis algorithm overhaul to help users get a better understanding of nightly sleep patterns.

For users who frequently forget to stop their sleep tracking, the app’s update also introduces the ability to trim time off any extra hours accidentally accrued.

Today’s algorithm overhaul allows for better declarations of sleep types within Sleep++. A user’s sleep is categorized as either deep or light sleep, restlessness or wakefulness. The optimizations brought in with the new version accurately indicate which type of sleep the user was experiencing, and when.

Sleep++ 2.0 also introduces a detail view, where users can get a more granular look at a previous nights’ sleep. Users can now easily see the overall percentage of restlessness and restfulness. This is especially beneficial for the moments when a user wants to confirm that any new bedtime habits have positively or negatively impacted their overall sleep.

Users who choose to do so may also export the sleep data output into the iOS Health app. From here it can then be shared out to other apps that utilize the Sleep Analysis data, like Lark or the Jawbone UP application. This data exported out into the Health app also includes the more refined details provided by Sleep++’s new sleep analysis improvements.

Sleep++ 2.0 (Main View)

The trouble with any type of tracker that relies on data within a set time period is remembering to turn it off when the activity is completed. Possibly the best feature of Sleep++ 2.0 is the ability to trim a previous night’s recorded sleep. No longer do users have to forfeit an entire’s night worth of data just because they forgot to turn off the tracker four hours after they woke up. Users can now jump into Sleep++, and trim down the recorded data to reflect the exact moment when they woke up.

For those that are wondering how it’s possible to track your sleep after having worn the Watch all day, be sure to check out Smith’s blog post detailing some small timing tricks that will help.

Sleep++ 2.0 is available for free in the App Store with a $1.99 in-app purchase to remove advertisements. Sleep++ 2.0 is compatible with iPhones running iOS 9.0 or later, and the Apple Watch. The update is still propagating across the App Store, so be sure to keep an eye out for it in your Updates tab.

Humans Sleep a Lot Less Than Any Other Primate

Forget studies that show that we are lazy, fried cheese-fed, cubicle dwellers. Or, at least forget the “lazy” part. Out of all the primates, humans distinguish themselves by getting the least amount of sleep.

What happens to your body when you stay awake for 72 straight hours straight

Sleep Deprivation

Back in college, I remember staying up for over 30 hours straight during finals week in a naive, misguided and ultimately foolish attempt to maximize my study time. Additionally, for reasons that defy explanation, I thought it wouldn't be a terrible idea to take a 9AM final exam with absolutely no sleep to my name.

This full-sized bear sleeping bag is the greatest thing ever invented

Realistic Bear Sleeping Bag

Winter is coming, and the last thing anyone wants or needs is to look like an idiot with nothing more than an old, boring and functional sleeping bag. If you've been looking to step up your sleeping bag game (and seriously, who isn't?) we've got just the thing for you.

Behold: A sleeping bag crafted to look just like a real life bear. Believe it or not, this "Great Sleeping Bear" sleeping bag is gaining a whole lot of traction on social media, if only for the sheer ridiculousness of the design and the shockingly high price-tag that accompanies it. You might think that a quirky product like this would come cheap, but this bad boy costs an insane $2,350. It is, after all, handmade.

Crocs Keep an Eye on You While They Sleep

Sleeping with only half your brain sounds like a great way to become a zombie in no time, but for certain marine mammals and birds, it’s a way of life. A new study suggests that crocodiles, too, may be “unihemispheric” sleepers, a finding which makes humans and other full-brain snoozers look more and more like evolutionary oddballs.
