How it works
- Wear your Apple Watch to bed (do not enable Power Reserve mode)

That means the roughly 1 in 3 American adults who do not get the recommended amount of sleep each night may be contributing to the cardiovascular disease epidemic. With so many potential benefits; there’s no excuse not to pay better attention to your sleep. Getting adequate and quality sleep may help:
- Improve mood
- Reach weight loss goals
- Battle stress
- Improve exercise performance and recovery
- Elevate daytime energy levels
- Learn and retain new knowledge better
- Improve workplace productivity
- Boost immune system strength
- Build better cardiovascular and brain health
Track your Sleeping Heart Rate
Your sleeping heart rate can be an important indicator of your cardiovascular health and fitness level that is less variable than your waking, resting heart rate.
- Leveraging the state-of-the-art motion and pulse sensors in your Apple Watch, our algorithm estimates when you are asleep by analyzing changes in your activity and heart rate
- Sleep Watch looks for sleep that occurs between 7:00pm and 11:30am that totals at least 1 hour
- Sleep Watch morning notifications about how you slept are sent at least 30 minutes after your detected wake-up time
- Your sleeping heart rate is calculated as the average heart rate during your sleep times
- Sleep Watch works by integrating with the Apple Health app
