3.AutoSleep Tracker-Quality sleep lowers stress levels enabling you to start your day with a bright smile. And AutoSleep tracker ensures you get adequate sleep while lending you tools to improve your sleep patterns. 

The auto sleep tracker is one of the best Apple Watch apps because it provides in-depth data about your sleep trends, sleep quality, and even bpm. The app uses a system of rings and a simple traffic light color scheme to help you understand your sleep cycles immediately. One of the reasons we advocate for the AutoSleep tracker is that it can track your sleep without the need to wear the watch throughout the night.

  • The Sleep Bank maintains your sleep credit and sleep debts. If you are slipping into sleep debt, the app readily advises adjusting your sleeping habits to stay healthy. 
  • The app also has the “Add Siri” option. Siri will remind you when it’s time for bed based on your sleeping patterns. 
  • It has the Apple Watch Smart Alarm – an intelligent feature! When set on arousal mode, the alarm tickles or nudges you with haptics once per minute. These gentle taps slowly bring you back from a deep sleep, making it way better than those traditional alarms. 
  • The app is integrated with the Apple Health App. Your sleep report is automatically updated in the app to help you improve your overall health. 
  • The Live Sleep Tracking feature record the hours you spend in bed and the actual sleeping hours.
  • The advanced algorithms suggest a suitable bedtime based on your everyday sleeping patterns.


The downside of the app is that it does not have a free version. It is available on the App Store for $4.99 as a one–time subscription with no hidden charges.

4.Water Minder– Staying hydrated is a key to achieving a healthy body. But since we all have a busy lifestyle, maintaining a healthy water balance is at the far end of our minds. But when you have Waterminder installed on your Apple Watch, you can stay hydrated throughout the day. 

A simple user interface, excellent charts, and swift reminders make Waterminder a must-have Apple Watch application. The app calculates the appropriate water intake based on your body weight and personal goals. It then sends water reminders throughout the day.
