The Gear S2 addon is back on the Gear store.
Find it under name Sleep as Android – Native Gear Companion.
Also make sure to install Sleep as Android – Gear Addon on your phone.
https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.urbandroid.sleep Please first check that you have the latest Sleep as Android Gear Companion from the Play Store:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.urbandroid.sleep.addon.generic.samsung Also also the latest watch app called “Sleep as Android GearCompanion” installed on your S2 using the Gear Manager. In case you had the previous add-on version installed, please make sure to remove them before installing the Companion apps. If you are still experiencing sleep tracking data outages (red bars in the sleep graph). Please note that it seems with the release of firmware R732XXU2DPFB and R730XXU2DPFB background process support stopped working properly on Gear S2. Even with keeping the CPU wake lock from time to time (most of the night) our app stops working. For weeks we have been trying to find the cause in our code, but it is more and more obvious that the latest firmware update broke background support on Gear S2. We are working on a workaround just now and should be releasing it soon on the Galaxy Store. The note that the approval process usually takes at least a week. The issue we are suffering is has been reported to Samsung, on the developer forums:
We did also report this to our developer contact and now are waiting for response from Samsung.. Many thanks for all of your help and big sorry for the issues.
Did you get any informatiopn about the Gear Fit 2?
I really would like to use the App with the Watch because i use the app since around 3 years and i sleep so much better.
Hello, Samsung is pretty quiet about it…
I also want to know when this app is compatible for the gear fit 2.
The watch is really cool and your app would go perfect with it. Here’s hoping Samsung works with you all to make it happen!
Additional request for fit2 support, fyi there was a promotion for a free fit2 for Galaxy 7 phones in August so you’ll see their usage has gone up quite a bit (we have 2).
Many thanks for your voice…we are closely watching the Fit 2 progress…
Im new to this idea, but am very intrigued.. does this increase the quantity/quality of your sleep, or simply measure REM or amiunf of times I wake up at night? My brother has xtremely severe sleep apnea, how would this help? And do I need to buy any hardwarr
Hi, you don’t have to buy any hardware, it works just with a smartphone. The app measures your movements at night and detects sleep phases from it. Then it wakes you up in the light sleep phase in the morning so you are not tired. For apnea, the app works with an oximeter (check https://sleep.urbandroid.org/documentation/extended-features/apnoe/ )
Is there any update on getting the sleep tracking on the Gear S2 working again. The only reason I use sleep as a Droid is for sleep tracking with a wearable. I tried the beta work around, but it’s a bit too much for me.
Any update about samsung gear compatibility?
Its seems sensors still don t work…
please make sure to use the new companion app for sleep tracking with Galaxy Gear devices.
Please uninstall the Sleep Gear app from your watch and install the “Sleep As Android – Native Gear Companion” from the Gear store.
Also make sure to update to the latest version of Sleep as Android – GearCompanion on your phone.
Gear s here, no results in galaxy app store. Was it removed again?
Hi Arick, please make sure to search exactly for Sleep as Android – Native Gear Companion. You may need to narrow the search to Health&Fitness category.
So will this work with a Samsung Gear 3 Frontier smartwatch with heartrate monitor? Thinking about getting one, but it doesn’t work with SleepAsAndroid I won’t
Hi Andreas, we haven’t tried it ourselves, but we have reports that Samsung Gear S3 works alright with SAA. Heartrate monitor is still not supported directly (we however automatically import HR information from S Health in the morning), but we’ll add it soon.
So you guys are planning to add heat rate detection through saa soon or will it just stay the same with it importing from s health
Hi Trenton, we have the hr detection ready and will be releasing it next month (for Gear S, S2, S3, Fit 1).
I really like your App, but the missing gear fit 2 integration drives me crazy… any news from Samsung?
Hi Christian, I think we can safely give up on ever having the Gear Fit 2 integration. What a pity :/
