How Do You Turn Off Sleep Mode On The Apple Watch?

The Apple Watch provides users with a wide array of innovative features, including one called Sleep Mode. Sleep Mode is designed to help users improve their sleep quality and gain better control over their schedule. But you may not always want Sleep Mode on, so how can you deactivate it?

You can disable Sleep Mode on the Apple Watch by swiping up and clicking the bed icon in the Control Center. You can also turn off the feature from the iPhone lock screen or from the Health app.

Although Sleep Mode is incredibly useful, you might want to manually deactivate it in some circumstances. It can be especially frustrating to manually turn it off each morning if you don’t know how to disable the feature entirely. Let’s take a look at what Sleep Mode does and how to turn it on and off easily.

The Sleep Mode or Sleep Focus app on the Apple Watch (on Amazon) allows you to create custom bedtime schedules that can improve your sleep quality. You can create different sleep schedules for different occasions, like one for your work week and another for your days off. Some features you might use include:

  • Set custom sleep goals
  • Decide what time you want to go to bed and wake up
  • Set custom alarm sounds
  • Turn on Sleep Focus to limit distractions in the evening and dim the display
  • Track your sleep to view your trends and habits

The Sleep Mode feature allows you to gain insight into your sleep quality and trends over the past 14 days. You’ll be prompted to charge your Apple Watch before bed if it has less than 30 percent battery life. You can also check the display in the morning to see if you need to charge your device for the day ahead.
