Sleep When I Sleep audio app
Used on an Apple Watch, the Sleep When I Sleep app can pause any audio playing if you fall asleep.
Sleep When I Sleep is an app that detects when you're falling asleep and sends you an alert through your Apple Watch. If the alert isn't dismissed, the app will pause any audio playing through the watch, or any device connected to it. It stops you missing out on anything, making it much easier to find where you left off in a story or podcast.
How does the app know when you're asleep?
The app uses health data from your Apple Watch to work out that you're falling asleep. Updates throughout the day make it as accurate as possible.
What if it alerts me when I'm not asleep?
If you're not asleep when you receive the app's alert, you can dismiss it and reset it at a less sensitive level.
How do I download the app?
You can download the Sleep When I Sleep app from the Apple App store.
