Richard's 'hack' works like a charm: don't accept auto start notification - just manually start app on your watch soon after that. No more battery drain on Fenix 5 this way
February 8, 2020
Don't start the app from the automatic prompt, cancel it and select it from the menu. For whatever reason, that reduces the battery usage to about 10% per night.

Requires you to SELECT run every time it tries to start tracking? And it drains the battery much faster. Why is support for this from Garmin so trash for such an expensive watch... Shitty company..

I've been using this for a year with Samsung watches where it also drain the battery (50% ovetnight) but with Forerunner 245 it is even worse. Starting at 99% I woke up with 23%(!) after 8 hours!

Not able to start it on my vivoactive 3

Tracks sleep really accurately but the battery drain issue is terrible. My brand new Fenix 6X Pro dies in 2-3 nights.

after update doesn't work proper.
January 16, 2020
Doesn't work proper:
- Sucks battery, more than 50% in one night
- crashes several time, no tracking, no reaction forces to reboot the watch
- can't read the time due small fonts
January 13, 2020
Same as others - I get a "launch sleep?" prompt, but can't select OK - just cancel. VA3.
January 12, 2020
Works OK except for massive battery drain - uses about 50% over a short night's sleep
January 9, 2020
The app works as described, but causes a significant battery drain. The app also does not import SPO2 data into SaA. I have a VivoActive 4 and using the app for one night drained 50% of the battery.
January 7, 2020
Doesn't work, nothing happens when pressing the green checkmark. VA3.

My venu doesnt vibrate at all when alarm starts. Consideting this is basic function for smarteatch, it is so dissapointing.
January 3, 2020
I cannot accept or start it on the watch. Only cancel button works. Va3

Not working with my OnePlus 5 and Garmin Vivoactive 4
January 2, 2020
So I tried tracking only as Smart wake-up. T makes no sense as it asks if you want to start sleep tracking, waking you up to do so. Support knows about the issue but doesnt know how to fix it... :-(

It's a more comprehensive look into you sleep but boy, does this drain the battery on a Venu! You'll never get more than 2 days battery if you use this app.
December 29, 2019
When using Garmin Fenix 6s, alarms don't show on the watch. The moment an alarm starts, the watch displays "start sleep tracking?" with yes or no option. It should be saying dismiss or snooze alarm.
December 28, 2019
App is draining the watch battery really fast, also turning on the light on the watches (probably based on some movement) which is really disturbing during night. If these two things could get fixed I wouldn't have a problem with the app...
December 26, 2019
Works as described - it provides HR and movement data during sleep and the data seems very accurate (way better than Garmin!). However, the battery drain is really extreme. I doubt I could make it through three nights of consecutive tracking without needing to charge.
December 24, 2019
Sleep app for phone has changed significantly over last 2 weeks. 13 Dec was the last day I had motion and HR detect in sleep and the connection drained the watch so fast it needed to be charged every 2 days. This is a new occurrence. I have used the Felix 5 and android galaxy s8 since July without battery drain issue. No forum enables any useful knowledge to correct and I have not changed settings. I did notice sleep app did update as did some other updates since on this date and correlate the issue with the update. However, when working with watch it is very good data. I have used sleep for over 5 years. Best app on market, when tethered with smart watch it is very good way to attempt to understand the sleep part of life and make adjustments. Please fix app and I am happy provide more data to help diagnose problem.

Sine updating, the power consumption is unbearable - can't last two full days and nights now with my 935, which lasted a week or so before
December 22, 2019
I have Garmin Fenix 5X and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge with the newest software updated
I have noticed a few bugs:
1. When there is Alarm on the phone activated Smartwatch is asking for starting Sleap.
When I choose "Yes" smartwatch is starting monitoring like it should be before start sleaping. But it shoul be in different way OR the question shoul be: cancel alarm or snooze.
2. When I set alarm on Smartwatch, on phone appears message in the menu message: "Sleap tracking with Garmin. Tap to stop" and the touchable word "STOP".
But it does not mean "stop alarm on Smartwatch", and it is needed to stop to clean this message.
It is rather unsefull or can be used for cancelling allarm on smartwatch.
3. During sleap monitoring the light on smartwatch is turning on and, it would be nice to have opportunity to disable this feature to not waking me up, because I have pretty shallow dream.
4. When the alarm on the phone is calling on the morning (during sleap monitoring) it may also trigger alarm on the smartwatch. But on smartwatch, there is no possiibility to cancel the alarm calling on the phone. It would be nice to have such possibility.
5. Having possibility to manage alarms on the smartwatch from Sleap As Android app would be also best feature.
As far, as I bought Garmin, I was using Sleap As Android app on the phone, and I was very satisfied. I hope, that the features in cooperation with garmin smartwatch will be also awesome working
