Smart Bedtime Reminders Getting to Sleep On Time Can Be Half the Battle To A Better Night’s Rest All Premium Members get Smart Bedtime Reminders. SleepWatch launched this feature for members to more reliably nudge themselves; improving their chances of feeling rested the next day. For example, based on your recent sleep times, we'll automatically notify you when you might want to consider winding down for the night to help promote or maintain a good Sleep Rhythm. This can help you guard against inadvertent binge streaming and remind you when to go to bed to improve your odds of waking up feeling more refreshed. Your wind-down routine may involve reading, meditation, dimming the lights, or a warm pre-sleep shower. Knowing when to begin thinking about sleep can set you up to be more in control.
