In some areas, Samsung smartwatches beat Apple Watches like a sleep tracking feature. Apple has introduced sleep tracking on Apple Watch Series 6 with the new WatchOS 7 version. It is too late for such a premium or most costly smartwatch. On the other hand, Samsung launched sleep tracking on Galaxy Watch in 2018; also, the previous watches had supported it. The feature is always the part of the Samsung Health app, which still gets better with every update. The results are also accurate and give proper tips to get better sleep.
Samsung previously lacked in ECG, fall detection & Afib features, though, now it came on new Galaxy Watch 3 along with advanced advanced heart rate & sleep tracking. With the launch of Galaxy Watch 3, Active & Active 2, the function gets more accurate. If you are also want to use the tracker on the watch, then I will simplify it. The smartwatches are not proper devices to put on your wrist and sleep with them. Fitness trackers would give you some relief. Still, if you want to wear the watch to track the sleep, then here is the guide on how to use sleep tracking on Galaxy Watch 3, Galaxy Watch Active & Active 2 wearables.
Sleep tracking on Galaxy Watch 3
1. Download Samsung Health app on smartwatch
2. Open Samsung Health app
3. Scroll down & tap on Sleep
4. Again scroll down & open Record REM Sleep
5. Activate the toggle
6. Now wear the smartwatch tightly on your wrist
7. You can sleep & in the morning you can get the result
Some users noticed that REM sleep function is not available on their smartwatch, so you should look for it. The smartwatch will automatically track your sleep on your movement. If you switch off Record REM Sleep, then the watch will get the help of motion to track it. Follow these steps and stay fit. If you don’t understand anything about these steps, then you can ask me any questions.
After a Samsung health app update on my samsung s20 fe this week it no longer shows my sleep stages on my phone app and it deleted the sleep stages for the month of September. How can I get that to work again? I have an Active 2 watch.
Is there a way to see the Light, REM, Deep sleep stats on the phone rather than the watch?
I have this on but it still incorrect. knowing i was asleep at 1am to 630am but says i slept from 1030 to 710…. i wasnt even really resting during this time. any way to correct this?
Yes, on the Samsung Health app
is there a way to see the Light,REM,Deep sleep stats on the phone rather than the watch, of course i have the watch i just want a bigger screen to view and analyze, and also to see additional dates.
Thank You for your help
I have returned my Samsung galaxy active 2 watch 2 times becauseofno sleeptracking. First time they replaced the control board. Still not working and sent it back in. After 24 days I got back an unboxed replacement watch Samsung claimed is new. Two of the last 3 nights my watch has not tracked any sleep. I use a sleep apnea machine and know how many hours I sleep. Why won’t Samsung address this?
I can start the tracking all right but how do I stop it again. The app shows “tracking” and there is a pause and a play button but no matter where I push it keeps tracking and drain my battery
