3.0 out of 5 stars Hmm... 6 Aug 2008
By Paul
I've used this watch for a number of nights. It's fair to say that the two nights that it woke me up I felt almost awake already, so getting up was easy. Unfortunately, the following two nights it didn't wake me up at all. The reason for this is that I made use of the 'vibration' alarm so as to not wake my partner. The watch vibrates very weakly for 30 seconds when the alarm goes off - perhaps the reason I didn't wake up is because I wasn't quite at the 'almost awake' part of my sleep cycle?
In effect that appears to give it a 50% success ratio... either that or the vibration alarm is just not up to the job.
This watch might be fine if you're using the standard audible alarm, but the vibration alarm can't be relied upon to get you up on time... or at all!
For my purposes and at the current price, 3 stars is generous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than The Old Version 10 Sep 2007
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I give this new version 5 stars. I have had the original sleeptracker for two years now and I love it. This new version is even better. I guess the sleeptracker company has been reading some of the reviews on the first generation watch. Now they have added what we want.

The pro advanced sleep watch has what we have been asking for.

First the buttons are smaller and no button on the face of the watch, so it won't be as easy to accidently push them while sleeping.

Second is the alarm. You can set if for vibration,chime or both. That is what I've been wating for. No matter where your hand is, under your pillow or blanket you can feel the alarm if set to vibration. The vibration is strong enough to wake you out of a sound sleep. Works great. No more waking up the wife or husband, depending on who is wearing it.

Third is the software to sync to your pc (only for windows) sorry MAC users. The software allows you to sync via usb. The charting in the software is very detailed and allows user to customize info as wanted. Much easier than charting manually every morning in excell like I was.

Now the cons:
The watch in my opinion is ugly. I would only wear this watch to bed. Would not be caught dead with it on the street. It's kind of big for the wrist. The strap is a combo of black and orange. Not something to wear to work. I guess most of us would just wear it to bed.

Overall I love the watch. It works very good with no problems with the sync to the computer, once the software is installed correctly. Like I stated before with the vibration alarm and the software link, this watch is a winner.

I might add that I did have trouble with the software on the cd. For some reason it failed to install on my computer.I had to go to the Sleeptrackers web site and download their version which is identical to the cd.. Maybe I had a bum cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars New, improved SleepTracker. 13 Dec 2007
By Garry Buck - Published on Amazon.com
I've used the older version for about a year. I liked it, but it would stop recording from time to time, I think I was rolling over and mashing buttons in my sleep. That's not a problem with the new version, the buttons are smaller and better protected from accidental pushes.

It's considerably bigger than the original, too big to be a practical day to day wristwatch like the old one. It's a small price to pay for the added functionality in my opinion.

The data transfer via USB cable works perfectly, no more typing for me. The software for analyzing the data is rather simplistic for my taste, but here's the good news, the data are stored in native MS Access format! So if you're a data geek like me, you can build your own reports and do your own analysis. I'm so happy they didn't go with a weird proprietary format.

I used to wake up grouchy and groggy all my life, that's now a thing of the past with the SleepTracker. If that's all it did it would be worth it. The data recording feature is an added bonus if you're like me, and need to determine the effect of different medications on your sleep patterns.

3.0 out of 5 stars 1-st impression of Sleeptracker Pro 28 Nov 2008
By Mitch Gusat - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've bought a Sleeptracker Pro from Amazon in Oct. '08. I've tested it for ca. 3 weeks in both US and EU, including the few jet-lagged days in between. Bgnd info on the tester: I buy and test sundry bio-feedback devices that may help me to improve, or document, my sleeping patterns.

My 1-st take on Sleeptracker Pro: A good & simple idea with a flawed --alpha-- implementation. Good enough for a prototype, useful for geeks and novices, yet a let-down for folks expecting hassle-free results, or for advanced users.

The idea is simple: Use a motion sensor to inferr the wearer's current sleep stage. While it can't tell the diff between deep sleep and resting (not moving), or, a longer meditation session, the concept is a practical approximation. The execution, though, is unnecessarily limited. Rarely i've actually stumbled upon a potentially useful device so unfinished as this...

Items that can be improved.

1. Please consider adding a "Free Sleep One-touch" record function, w/o having to set both the "to bed" and the "alarm" time. This type of acquisition window reduces the consumer benefit (to simplify the development effort?). I'd like to press once to start the sampling, and once more to terminate it. Man people would like to analyze their sleep w/o actually using the alarm.

2. Extend the user memory (e.g., by 100-1000x), enough to store a few weeks of sampled data. Currently --unless one doesn't download daily to a PC-- each night will over-write the previous' session data. While FLASH memory costs cents/MB, the S.Pro stores merely a few 'user' bytes, forcing one to either daily download or loose data. When a 4GB USB stick costs a few $, one would expect an $180 device to squeeze more than 0.1KB of user data.

3. Relocate the "Mode" button to make it accessible while the USB clip (the 3-prong gotic device with USB cable) is attached. BTW, it's quite an irony to have the *only* button needed for USB transfers being blocked by the USB clip... Or just use a mini-USB port (water may become a problem, but it should actually matter for this device).

4. Software: Reminiscent of the 80s + GUI. While the GUI is relatively clean, it's mostly an empty shell devoid of the needed functionality. Please enhance the s/w beyond its still alpha version where it's stuck since '07. At least pls. allow the data to be deleted, added/inserted, shifted and displayed in more useful ways.

5. Pls. allow the user to set the "eagerness" of the alarm, which currently starts always on the FIRST motion during the window. Explain clearly with examples or a picture how the alarm window works. E.g., the 20min interval is NOT centered on the alarm time, but it's ahead of it. With larger windows, this means that the user must accept to sleep less; a few times the alarm woke me up nearly an hour earlier. Perhaps I could've slept 1-2 more deep episodes before the final alarm...

6. Allow once per month downloads (repeat) w/o over-writing the data.

7. Provide more suitable statistics. The average can be misleading when placing 5 billionaires (Gates, Buffet etc.) i the same room w/ 95 homeless and concluding that this must be super-rich's assembly. Median and variability could better describe a sleep made of 3-4 long segments (90min. each) plus a dozen 8-12 min. tracks.

Net: A good idea w/ a coarse 1-st implementation (actually this is the 2nd or 3rd generation), slow in technically improvements. Marketing seems to trump technology thus far, because with a tad more thought the hardware and the software could be greatly improved - to reach new markets.

Does it actually work? Yes, with limitations. The commercials have fuelled some false expectations, of more than the actual device can do. This is a basic alarm watch with a built-in motion sensor (like those used in most 2.5" hard-disks to avoid crashing the heads) that will go on at the 1-st move detected during the alarm window. The trade-offs are obvious...

Is it worth your money? Yes, if you have some moderate sleep problems and enough discipline in your daily schedule to work on them. No, if you expect an true sleep monitor (headband sensors) or a reliable, thoughtful and straightforward tool.

IMHO it's a thoughtless raw design that could do much better. I rarely had to resort to adjectives such as 'thoughtless' until now, yet there's little engineering attention paid to this product. A shame. I gave it 3 stars to reward the idea, which by now is common in many other products.

Update Febr.'09: The Glow button no longer works w/o pushing really hard - but it's still functional. A few s/w bugs have caused the watch to display wrong Data A, and to repeat the same readings for 2 nights.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not useful for heavy sleepers 23 Nov 2008
By Nikki - Published on Amazon.com
When you look at the watch descriptions, it sounds like it is a high tech devise that detects your sleep cycles, but it actually has nothing to do with the 5 stages of sleep cycle. It basically detects when the watch is moved, you know, just like the Nintendo Wii knows when you swing the remove control. It beeps when you move your arm or turn over, and their idea is that you tend to move when you are in the lighter stage of sleep.

The problem I have with this that when it beeps, I wake up for a second but fall back to sleep right away. It does not snooze like a normal alarm, so once you missed the time you set, the watch does not go off again. So the watch does not help me getting up and is basically useless for me.

There is also a glitch in the time calculation. When it records your sleep for more than 8 hours, it shows a totally incorrect time. I asked the manufacturer about this, and they confirmed the problem and told me that they would send me a software patch to fix the problem. Unfortunately, a month passed, three months passed, and 8 months passed now, they keep giving excuses and they still haven't come up with a fix yet. I am disappointed with this matter.

After evaluating this watch, I think this watch is overpriced for what it does. If you are a heavy sleeper like me, it probably won't help you getting up in the morning, and if you are a light sleeper, you probably won't need this watch in the first place.

2.0 out of 5 stars Works great for light sleepers 23 May 2008
By B. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
I've had the sleeptracker pro for about 5 months now. The concept is great and the sleep tracking works well.

The main problem is that it's not loud and doesn't vibrate much. The audible alarm is approximately as loud as a standard watch's alarm. The vibrator is pretty mild out of necessity -- it's gotta fit in a watch and use a watch battery while maintaining some battery life.

So what that means is if you're the kind of person who needs extra help waking up this watch can't deliver. It seems like it would be a good way for a light sleeper to wake up. Perhaps this would be a great watch for a light sleeper that wants to wake without waking their significant other.
