The iPhone and the Apple Watch is the ideal combination to keep you fit and healthy as they are two devices that complement each other perfectly to help you exercise, eat healthy and also control your sleep, which is what we want to talk to you about in this post, how you can use your iPhone and Apple Watch to know in detail how you sleep and if you are resting well or not.
What should a sleep monitoring app measure?
Before choosing your application to control your sleep, you have to take into account certain factors that the applications that are going to monitor your activity at night must meet.
In order to have an accurate control of how you sleep, the usual thing is that the application, through the device with which you are using it, is capable of registering and determining when you get up at night, the quality of sleep based on the movements that you can make while you sleep and even of the sounds that you can emit unconsciously. It is also very important that you measure your vital signs, hence the importance of doing it through an Apple Watch. Therefore, when choosing the app to monitor your sleep, take a good look at what it uses to subsequently issue the sleep report.
Differences between measurements with iPhone and watch
As we mentioned before, the ideal thing if you want to know the information on your sleep at night is for this measurement to be done by the Apple Watch because it has a series of sensors that will be able to measure your vital signs throughout the night, making the information collected and the results it offers are much more reliable.
In case you don't have an Apple Watch, you can also do it with the iPhone, but the results won't really be as accurate as if you did it with the Apple watch. What the iPhone will do is control your possible movements based on the sound you can generate, therefore, the degree of reliability is much lower.

Obviously, this It is a very personal point of the post , since our preferences respond to our personal tastes and needs. Therefore, regardless of this, we encourage you to choose the application you are going to use based, once again, on your tastes and needs. However, ours are the following.
For all users who have an Apple Watch, the first thing we want to make clear is that the watch itself, without you having to do anything at all, if you wear it to go to sleep with it, it will automatically measure your sleep, and also I must say that it does really well. However, there is an application that is the best in this regard, it is AutoSleep. Not only because of the precise way in which it will measure every second in which you are asleep, but also because of the amount of information that you will have available the next morning to be able to perfectly understand if you sleep or not sleep well and the possible reasons. that lead you to it.
In addition, something that you have to keep in mind is that if you want to have a precise study, the most advisable thing is to use an Apple Watch together with your iPhone, but hey, for all those users who do not like the Apple watch or who simply have it but find it uncomfortable to sleep with it on, the application to monitor sleep directly from the iPhone that we liked the most has been Sleeptic, especially because it provides in a very clear way all the data that it is capable of collecting.
