The new Apple Watch is here and while it has an always-on display, ECG sensor, and a compass, there’s one long-awaited feature it still doesn’t have: sleep tracking. But it’s not just the lack of a native sleep app. Apple has no mechanism in place for recognizing when you’re wearing your watch in bed, so even if you’re using a third-party sleep app, your watch might wake you or your partner up with vibrations and screen wakes.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Until Apple builds into the Apple Watch an automatic do not disturb while sleeping feature, you’re going to have to add your Apple Watch to your bedtime routine. But fret not, there are a few easy fixes.
