This app sucks. Totally messed up body battery. My watch battery was drained by 50% after using this app. What a waste and don’t pay money for this or you’re literally throwing $ out the window. Garbage app! Cmon dev team, get your shyt together!!!!

Hi Corey, can you please clarify what exactly the app sucks? We are quite transparent with battery consumption and we are by far the most battery saving app that is used over night or a long period of time. As mentioned multiple times below these are limitations to the framwork. I can understan that this is very hard to communicate to people that are non-technical. You deserve a better app.

Hallo Sascha, danke für dein wertvolles Feedback! Bitte das nächste Mal die Beschreibung lesen

I have been looking for an app that allows you to set alarms based on sleep goal duration so i spend $300 on a garmin vivoactive 4 in addition to a pro license. The app appears to be bearly functional and does not provide you the option to upgrade despite paying for the lisence. There is no ability to set alarms based on sleep goal duration as described.

Developer Reply

Hi Jesse, I am sorry you feel that way but thanks for reaching out that quickly to us. We feel honoured that you bought a vivoactive 4 just to use our product! We can see that purchased and activated your licence today, so it is indeed upgraded to pro licence. You need get familiar with handling the watch first in order to understand how to navigate through apps and activities. Using touch functionality you can reach settings of the app through pressing on the screen for a certain amount of time. First entry of the menue should state the days of the licence still being active. Please reach out to us via contact developer form on the store page of the app, so we can write back and fourth and hopefully solve your problem soon. Thanks

This app doesn’t allow your watch to track your sleep so you never know if the watch is actually waking you up at the best time in your sleep cycle. The app should either show a summary of your sleep just like the watch actually does so you can see if you was woken up at the right time or not. Either that or it should allow the watch to track it while the alarm is on.

Hi Shania, unfortunately Garmin ConnectIQ framework does not allow us to access garmin sleep data. What we are able to do is to access sensor data in order to make predictions on the sleep circle. Of course these are different algorithms and we do not read sensors throughout the night in order to save battery. We are indeed calculating metrics in regards to that during postprocessing of our webapplication with our smartWake clone connectIQ app (called Implays as well). We displays metrics like hrv and a probability score of being in light sleep. Sadly all these calculation cannot be done on the processor of the watch.

Hi Filip, we are aware of the battery consumption (as you can see in our description). From an engineering point of view I am sorry to tell you that there is nothing that can be done in order to make a reliable smart alarm. regards

Fact that due to usage of this app my Fenix 6 is not tracking sleep parameters and body battery make this app useless :( beside that it woke me in light sleep stage. Are you planning to fix that for Fenix 6? Without that using this app is pointless!

Developer Reply
July 13, 2022, BlackTusk

Hi Aneta, thanks for pointing out what we already mentioned in our description in the second paragraph as well as many other reviewers. We would love to fix it but only garmin can by changing limitations of their framework. Sleep is calculated on the watch (Fenix 6 and 7) and connectiq framework excudes sleep calculation during app runtime. We also expored alternatives but it was not feasable. We do not have a good lobby in order to change that. But good to hear that it worked woke you up in light sleep stage!

Works very well to wake me up feeling fresh with one gripe... Other notes; Battery drain in Fenix 5x plus is as advertised. Easy to use. It’s the only app that I’ve used, having tried several, that is intuitive, regularly updated by the developer and actually seems to work. My only gripe is; to set the alarm to vibration only, you have to do it globally, via system settings for all activities. This is frustrating as alert tones are useful in activities but they alarm sound disturbs my other half. It might be a Garmin limitation, but frustrating nonetheless.

Hello there! I´ve installed the software and activated the licence on my Vivoactive 4, but I can not use the PRO-funktions. Starting the app in the watch I can set 1 alarm, but can´t figure out how to set a sleep goal or a list of alarms. Settings says "Pro version active, 364 days left". Alarm mode is sleep goal (green), List mode is ON (green). Garmin Connect app on my smartphone shows a new card, named "Smartwake", showing me Kilometer, Kalories, activity time, heart frequency. WHY? What to do to make the right settings?

Developer Reply
July 13, 2022, BlackTusk

Hi Achim, we included activity types and data collection during runtime (that will be discarded before closing the app) in order to save battery life. Otherwise we would end up with 30%-60% for every watch. Multiple alarms means that you can define multiple alarms, sorry the wording is a bit misleading. So in order to work you need to set type to "alarm" and not to "goal" and list mode to "on" we haven't though about multiple goals since you probably change it anyway or always leave it as it was before. How would you use multiple goals with SmartWake? You can alway reach out to us directly via contact develper. Thanks

It's a really cool feature and works very well. If the Problems with BodyBattery and the SleepScore etc. would be fixed, I would highly recommend this app and rate it with 5 stars then. The sleep data and BodyBattery status are more Important for me. Hope this will be fixed soon!

Hi Laura, I am afraid but Garmin will probably not change the behaviour of their framework. As mentioned before, there is nothing that we could to to fix body battery and sleep score on new devices. You might help us by sending a user voice request to their support. Thanks and sorry!

Forerunner 645- app no longer works for me. Used to use it fine, but now the wake up windows are all over the place. Sometimes will be 10 minutes after I set the alarm, sometimes way before it should be possible. What happened?

Developer Reply
March 6, 2022, BlackTusk

Hi Colin, thanks for your feedback. Can you please provide more information via contact developer? Are you using pro Version or the freemium? Does it occur no matter how you set parameters? We havent made any big changes, sometimes we experienced different behaviours of apps after connectiq framework was updated. I am positive that we can fix that.

Hi Aleksey, as already mention in the description and in almost every third comment, body battery does not work accordingly when using smartwake. Sadly we cannot do anything about it. There is no workaround, only a changes in the connect iq framework could resolve the issues. Sleep statistics are only affected in the latest models where sleep statistics is calculated directly on the watch. We mentioned that as well in the description

Hallo Petra, wie in unsere Beschreibung und mehreren Kommentarantworten erwähnt sind uns hier die Hände gebunden. Jede Aktivität wird per se als Reduktion der Body Battery gewertet. Wir haben einige Tipps und wichtige Einstellungsmöglichkeiten in unsere Beschreibung inkludiert, insbesondere die Beleuchtung während der Aktivität sollte du in den Einstellungen der Uhr prüfen. Dann wird auch kein Partner gestört. Es empfiehlt sich auch auf Vibrationsalarm umzustellen, um niemanden zu seiner persönlichen Weckzeit zu wecken. Was meinst du mit Auswertung oder sonstige Infos? Du kannst dich gerne direkt an uns wenden wenn du auf "Contact Develpers" klickst.

Hi Corey, please go to the general settings of the watch and switch off alarms withing sound settings (usually sounds are active during activities). You may find a more detailed description in the description of the app in the store. If you need any assistance please reach out to us.

The contact form doesn't work so I have to go through the comments (I will edit once solved) : Hello, Battery gets empty very fast with the app running during the night + native sleep watch doesn't work anymore (and therefore also my body battery is very low) Can this be normal? What shall I do?

Developer Reply
January 21, 2022, BlackTusk

Hi Arthur, depending on the watch and the battery level we experienced acceptable (FR245) to hight battery drain (Venu1). We also shared a table in the description with approx. battery usage per night. OLED displays seemed to be affected more frequently in the past. New devices that calculate sleep directly on the watch instead of sending it to the server for calculation, sadly exclude every datapoint that happens within an activity. This is by design. Sorry there is nothing we can do about it.

August 23, 2021 | Version 3.0.4

"IQ" icon solved!! If you open Settings in IQ app and then disagree that "Active" button, "IQ" on watch display is gone and the app launch is ok ✌️✌️
