  1. Integrate Smart Alarm and phone

    Smart Alarm currently only vibrates to wake the user. This has failed to wake people because the vibrate is too weak for them (or they're too tired, in general).

    Suggest that the Smart Alarm optionally use a more traditional, audible alarm on the phone when available (fall back to the vibrate).

    • Recommend when to go to bed based on average sleep efficiency and when one must wake up.

      Based on previous sleep efficiency averages and knowing when one needs to wake up (either set separately, or based on alarm) recommend when to go to bed. (Or at the very least, offer the ability to offer an estimate of how many hours of sleep one should get based on previous light/deep sleep, efficiency, etc.)

      • As a Microsoft band user, I would like view my snoring patterns overlaid on top of my other sleep details.

        This would be an optional addition to the existing sleep tile as it would likely impact battery life. The microphone would listen for sounds over x decibels, decide if it is the wearer snoring, do some pattern matching to identify the type of snore and volume, and show that as a stat along with heart rate, restful etc. for the nights sleep. Would also like to be able to hear recorded samples.

        Depending on the preference of wearer/partner, it could vibrate (adjust you somehow) in the case on apnea or divorce-inducing-volume.

        • Adapt clock color in sleep mode

          When you watch time in sleep mode at night, current blue color is very agressive for eyes in the dark. A red color for exemple would be better.

          • Enable do not distrub (DnD) mode while sleep is on

            For those of us that utilize quiet hours, they should be triggered and finish when you enter and end sleep mode on your band.

            • Refine sleep tracking to include REM sleep and interruptions like Basis Peak

              The sleep tracking and charts show only light,deep and awake. Other products include REM sleep, tossing/turning and interruptions (short waking periods such as going to bathroom in the night). This give a more complete picture. Also included is detailed tracking data like heart rate and temp. Band sleep tracking seems to offer less information even though you have more sensor data.

              • Turn off phone audio when sleep detected

                I like to listen to the radio on my phone at night as I try to sleep. Would be nice if, when the band detected I was asleep, switched it off.

                • night time glance screen on band 2

                  When you go into sleep mode the watch is disabled. A glance screen night function similar to Lumia phone would be great. If you wake up at night you may still want to see what time it is

                  • Automatic sleep detection analisys

                    Provide sleep analysis even when it's automatic because the user forget to turn on the sleep app.

                    • Larger time display (font) during Sleep mode

                      When in sleep mode, the display is blank. That's fine. If I wake up in the middle of the night, I’d like to know what time it is. Hit the button to see a large crescent moon and the time in a tiny font. When I’m bleary eyed and just woken up it’s very hard to read that tiny font. Why does the moon need to be so big? The daytime display of time is great.

                      • Battery warning when entering sleep mode

                        Sleep mode gives average sleep time, and probably battery state before and after sleep. It would be great if Band would warn you when entering sleep mode that current battery level would probably not be enough to get you through the night based on your sleep and power consumption during the night statistics. Then you would know to charge for a few minutes before sleeping, to not wake up with a dead Band on your wrist, not having lost sleep data because of battery failure. In fact, this general principle would probably also work for other activities, like run, bike…

                        • Sleep Tile missing features: Auto-trim

                          Occasionally I get 12 hours of sleep. That happens when I sleep for 5 hours, wake up, and then don't look at my Band for another 7 hours only to discover that it's still in sleep mode. The activity is counted, including steps, but I'm still "sleeping" after I sync with the Health Dashboard.

                            • Sleep mode with microphone recording

                              In sleep mode it would be good to save the last min(s) of audio just as you enter awake state (alternatively noise level on the sleep grpah during the night), this could help diagnose a possible causes of waking up. e.g. snoring, sleep apnea, outside/inside noise vs dreams/nightmares / other causes.

                              • trim sleep data

                                Some times I forget to turn off sleep tracking when I wake up. If the band could automatically chop off the awake time from the end of the sleep so that it isn't showing that I slept for 13 hours when I only slept 8 that would be great.

                                • rate how I feel after sleeping.

                                  I would like to rate how good I feel my sleep was before I look at the the band recording. And I would like the app to keep record of my rating and chart it with the bands other recordings of my sleep. That way I can associate how I felt with what was recorded. One to five stars with half star rating system would be detailed enough.

                                    Sometimes the band does not detect my sleep (and I've forgotten to manually set it before falling asleep). Can you make it possible to add your estimated stay and end sleep times for the last few sleeps, like fitbit does? I miss this feature.

                                    • Measure heart rythm (during sleep)

                                      Heart arythmy during sleep can reveal some disease. I think the MS Band should be able capturing that with a dedicated setting, even if that consumes from the battery.

                                        Sometimes I wake up at night and am curious how much sleep I've gotten so far. It would great if I could just wake the Band and have that information displayed without having to stop/restart sleep mode.

                                          I would like to see the phone’s glance properties be reflected on the Band, especially around the night mode and the colour change. It would be really good if when entering sleep mode that the white “Goodnight” text and stars turned red so as to avoid losing night vision. Red is supposed to be the best light to look at something during the night without disturbing the eyes and so it would be great if when I wake up in the middle of the night I can get the time and sleep stats in red not white.
