I’m one of those Watch users who does not charge Watch overnight. First, it doesn’t need that much charging. Second, I want it to track sleep and heart rate overnight. Charlie Sorrel found two Watch apps that get you there:
Is sleep-tracking worth it? If you’re not getting enough sleep, then yes, it probably is. Just like step-counting apps hack your brain into wanting to walk more, so sleep-tracking apps can help you to get more and better sleep.
Who doesn’t want better sleep?
The downside is that you can’t charge your Apple Watch overnight if you’re wearing it. On the other hand, you probably have a spare 60-90 minutes during the day, and getting the Watch up over 90% is not only good enough, but may even be better for its battery than taking it all the way to 100%.
That’s what I do. I work a few hours on my Mac mid-AM, and that’s when I charge Watch. Occasionally, I’ll re-charge later in the evening as I’m cleaning up on my Mac or iPad and getting ready for the next day. A couple of hours is all Watch needs to keep charged.
