finally my venu provides oxymetry data with the latest plug in version from jan 21. thanks a lot. battery usage still good (max 25%/7h) unfortunately i have to restart the watch every morning because plugin does not stop tracking message without restart.

Hey there, This "rewrite entire code" thing rendered the app not only useless, but a nuisance. It simply doesn't work. - watch didn't vibrate on alarm - nothing is manager from the watch - it constantly tries to start tracking all day long In other words, you transformed a working app into a pre-pre-pre-alpha toy for a developer and use is all as guinea pigs. I have a suggestion: I believe that most (if not all) users would appreciate very much if you upload the previous version of the app (say under a LEGACY name or a such). So people not interested in debugging can continue to use the app. Otherwise, I am sure, you very soon loose all your loyal audience. Think about it. And please, upload the previous version. Thanks

There was a way to track a sleep with specific set of actions in my Fenix 5 (in my previous review I wrote about that) but after this update I wasn't able to get it working correctly. Today it sleep tracked OK (sleep started on phone and confirmed 'just once' on watch) but it didn't fire watch vibrations as it should have.

Not able to dismiss or snooze alarm via watch while it keeps vibrating (both options dismiss/snooze are unresponsive). Battery usage is okay, about 10% a night.

This app should be named battery draining for Garmin

Forerunner 245 is barely able to last over the night due to a massive battery drain caused by this plugin. Till the issue is solved I can't use it. No such a problem with Sleep as Android on Xiaomi watches.

Perfect to kill your battery life. 60% of battery gone in one short night. While I usually hold a week easily.

Uses way too much power. Went from 5 days to 2 days battery life over night on my new Fenix 6 pro.

21 ธันวาคม 2563 | Version 20201008.0.0

Big fan of the app, but after the update, it doesn't work anymore. It either doesn't connect to the watch or it disconnects after 30min-1hour (ForeRunner 935, Android Phone). Sometimes I'm lucky if I start the watch and then connect the phone. If I start from the phone (Samsung S20) the buttons 'this time only', 'always' just force a restart of the watch. Hope they can fix this soon

This rewrite the whole code thing made the experience worst possible. 1st, lock screen has no option to disable it our even to change button! Why you decided for me hire i use buttons? ! I have on menu button another app i use years! 2nd, the watch CONSTANTLY trying to start traking. I restart the phone and watch several times with no avail. It is just unacceptable

6 ธันวาคม 2563 | Version 20201008.0.0

Right order of apps installation to phone and watch IS important. Unable to dismiss alarm when watch nor connected (FR935, Andr.10). Maybe I would suggest to change key combination to dismiss the alarm. By holding the menu button i got to the menu but I was unable reach the watch menu to restart the watch. Battery drain wasn't more than 10%/night.

Hallo. Die App ist super. Ich nutze sie sehr viel. Die letzten Updates haben sie deutlich verbessert. Nur der Vibrationsalarm an der Garmun Fenix funktioniert leider nicht mehr. Diese Funktion ist mega gut wenn ich meine Frau nicht durch meinen Wecker aufwecken möchte. Bitte bringt diese Funktion wieder ans laufen. LG.

Nice idea.. But look and reliability is awful. Often restart whole watches 15 minutes after start of application. GUI uses own graphics with very small font... Developer not reacting. Not using it any more. VA3

This app used to work reliably a few months ago. Since recent updates, this is pretty much useless. Sleep as Android doesn't work with Garmin.

20-45% battery drain, had to restart fenix 6 before (so it can connect) and after the night (because it won't close); sometimes stopping the app on the phone stops the app on the watch properly, sometimes not (and the watch won't stop vibrating). Data provided to Android app very limited (looks like HR only?), doesn't really warrant the battery use when compared to what the Garmin's own sleep tracking does with minimal resources. Both alarms fired properly.... but couldn't be silenced from the watch. Currently more nuisance than help but will be checking that in the future.

This is a pretty good app, if you use sleep as android on your phone this is a must have.

When starting SaA from the phone (confirm on FR245), battery drain is about 10% p/h, but when starting from the watch it is close to 4% p/h or about 30% p/night. It is not battery friendly, but understandible because of the BT-connection. I also have to stop the watch-app from the phone, or force-close the watch-app (sometimes both). SpO2 and BR is not yet availlible on the FR245, but would make it a 5 star app for me.

Loses the connection after about 20 - 30 minutes 5 nights a week. The connection issue is getting worse.

19 พฤศจิกายน 2563 | Version 20201008.0.0

Can you please explain me how does this app work? I was using the Android app with basic tracking band, but I can't figure out how to use my Venu sq to track the sleep... I tried several combination and nothing seem to work. No connection to the phone, no alarm displayed, sometimes the app freezes and I have to force restart.

18 พฤศจิกายน 2563 | Version 20201008.0.0

Drained my battery from over 70% to off in a few hours when it worked. Last time I'm trying this app!

Tried the Garmin App on Decent Mk2i with excitement, but whatever I do, the watch App does not Connect with the phone App. Tried WLAN, Bluetooth, reboots ans different sequences of Installation. My Sleep phaser doesnt Work anymore since abot a year so I was hoping to usw my New SmartWatch and include Heart Rate and SPO2. :( I use the Sleep as an Android App since IT was frist released and this is the best App for Sleep Insights ever since.

I love Sleep as Android, but the Garmin integration is bad for now and it's probably Garmin's fault. I like to switch of Bluetooth at night, so it would be better and imply no battery drain if sleeping data is transferred and processed afterwards and not in real time. As it is, starting sleep tracking and (forced) stopping is also cumbersome.

Stopped working after recent update and now saying it isn't compatible with my watch. Can anyone explain this?

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
