Sleep as Android offers five types of widgets You can place on Your device’s desktop.

1) Tracking widget
2) Alarm widget
3) Droid widget
4) Hypnogram widget

5) Shortcuts widgets

Tracking widget

The tracking widget is the reminder widget that shows You how soon You should get into bed.
Its normal state is grey, but turns into green two hours before the scheduled bedtime and shows the countdown. When You reach bedtime, the widget turns red as a warning that You should go to sleep ASAP.

Alarm widget

The alarm widget shows the time of the next alarm. Its color reflects current day of the week from Monday – Red to Friday and Weekend – Green to reflect the usually work week day sentiments :).

Droid widget (icon)

The droid widget is the “happy week” widget.
It changes appearance depending on time, date, day of the week and other factors. Find out all the droid faces!

Hypnogram widget

This widget shows Your last hypnogram, so You can check today’s sleep of Yours. Clicking on it brings You to the Sleep as Android application.

Shortcuts widgets

When long pressing the Sleep icon, you can create new widgets from your shortcuts.

  1. It would be great if we could choose which graph to display instead of the hypnogram. For me personally, it has limited use since I see it when I turn the alarm off in the morning anyway, but the actigraph is handy since it also includes my heart rate (and breathing rate if its been recorded). For some, the noise plot might be more useful.

  2. Really nice app, I tried it and immediately adopt it ! I´m using more and more functionality.
    I´m also interested to know the status of Key´s question, as I also agree that the actigraph will be more nice as widget as it include more information (heart rate, breathing, alarm, snooze etc …). My plan is to use the widget on a separate tablet (sync with the sleep cloud) to check it more carefully when having breakfast or so (i.e. more awake than when just waking up …) at least if this can´t be done, it will be useful to add on the hypnogram widget the time on the x axis (best would be also the heart rate info etc …)
    I hope this will be possible on a future version.

  3. Would be great if Sleep included a digital clock widget. Normally I’d use the default Google Clock widget, but it doesn’t support Sleep’s alarms and I can’t set it to open sleep when I tap it…

    There are some 3rd party widgets which allow setting a custom shortcut, but an official Sleep clock widget would probably integrate better.

    Gotta say this is one of the best Android apps out there. I’ve been using Sleep for ages, and it’s the first thing I download on new phones. Keep up the good work! 🙂

  4. Amazing app. My hypnogram widget user to have a dark grey background buy now has a white background. Is there any way I can change it back? The white background is ugly!

    1. Hi Stu, the white background is tied to the Morning lark theme. If you want to go back to black background on the widget, you have to set the app’s theme to Night Owl (Settings > Miscellaneous > Theme)
