As I read other reviews, I am not the only one who see excess battery consumption.

Incredibly bad software. Extremely expensive and does nothing. At all.

I've been using the android app for years and love it but the app on the watch just destroys the battery. I can lose 40-60% of the charge over one 7 hour period of monitoring. I'm going to stop using it on my Garmin and just record the times on my phone app since i have sleep records going back 5+ years. Very disappointed

Worst integration of all time. Uses most of my battery at night and that is if it tracks at all. The only way it tracks is of it switches the text from starting to tracking even after it successfully launches the phone app to start tracking. It then lights up the watch every 5 seconds. The fix is to reinstall it continuously and that only has maybe a5% success rate.

This app was working great on my Vivoactive 3, it would use maybe 15-20% battery all night. Since upgrading to my Vivoactive 4 it now uses well over 80% battery since I went to bed with my watch at 70 something percent and it died before I woke up.
Please fix this, I would love to keep using this app but at the moment my only choice is to uninstall it.

I love Sleep As Android on my Samsung phone. It is an exceptional app!!!
I recently purchased a Garmin smart watch with the intention of using the app on my new watch. Unfortunately it drains my battery so much I had to uninstall.
But let me repeat, Sleep As Android on my Samsung phone is excellent and highly recommended.

I like the program. It works correctly 75% of the time. Since my watch has a touchscreen sometimes me rolling over turns it off. Even with my screen locked it sometimes stops working on my phone but my watch thinks it is still working.

Fenix 5 plus. The app enables back-light gesture feature (turned off by default by me). Or app has a build in one (possibly not with a great algorythm). Seems like backlight turns on during restless sleep a lot (it is definitely - when I am lying down). It could cause the problem with battery drainage as the app drained my battery differently every night.

Consumed 49 %of the battery overnight on fenix 6 sapphire. Useless.

Consumes 44% battery at night, so unusable. If that can be fixed, then I would give better rating. But right now this can be used only if there's important meeting etc. and you want to wake up at light stage of sleep and feel good right away.

Looks like a good app, but I lost almost 50 percent on my Vivoactive 4s tracking one night's sleep. That is too much for me.

I find Sleep As very useful and this little widget does what it needs to.

Please do something about the battery drain.

Doesn't work with vivoactive 3 music. I installed the 3 apps on my phone + the one on my watch. I turned off battery optimisation on Garmin connect. Can't establish the connection between phone and watch. Sleep as android is searching but nothing happens :(
Can you help me ?

This app is extremely useful, however with my VA4 this is a battery hog. I loose close to 50% every night. Please fix the battery hog issue at the earliest.

I've been very disappointed in this app. It needs an update. It drains my Vivoactive 3 battery by 30-50% a night. I've had battery draining apps and I usually uninstall them quickly. But I have just installed Sleep as Android, and I've paid for it. Want to keep it.

Many thanks for your review KBGebble.
I'm extremely glad that you have written it since I have never been able to reproduce the battery drain that you and a lot of other people are talking about. I have a Vivoactive 3 as a development device. I never received a battery drain report from anyone with Vivo3 so I thought it doesn't affect that device. With your experience, I might just be able to fix it. Would you be willing to help? Could you please write me at [email protected]?

I have had this phone app for years and was excited to get the Fenix 6 for added data. I am bummed have to uninstall this app from the watch; it ate 30% extra battery last night on the first usage.

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 | Version 20191008
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.
