Use both sonar and accelerometer for sleep detection

There is currently only the option to use one or the other. I’d love to be able to enable both at the same time to make readings even more accurate!

Can the phone do sonar while a wearable does heatbeat/accelerometer?

This is a really good idea

Fully agree with Marcus: It is only logical that using multiple sensors (sonar, movement and heartrate) has the POTENTIAL to do even better sleep tracking. And on the battery issue: don't most people charge their phone besides their bed anyway?

idea… This option would be really helpfull! To have the movement and pulse from the smartwatch, and the breathing detection from sonar. For the battery problem i recommend to use a charger during the night.

+Meyer… sonar on Smart watch would kill the battery on no time… but we already do accelerometric breath detection on Android Wear although Sonar is more reliable here as this approach realies heavily on the position on your arm…for example position on yoru chest produces best results…

Well, this idea is brilliant. But when it comes to my potato phone with only 1900mAh for the battery capacity, it can only stand for less than 6 hours.

Yes! And add smart watch support for this! Currently it appears the smart watch can only track arm movements and heart rate but many watches also have a microphone. It would be nice if you could track arm movement, heart rate AND breathing :slight_smile:


Dear guys, it is not possible to use it with the accelerometer from miband II, isn’t it? Is this also planned?


Miband 2 is supported - you need to install either Tools & Miband or Notify & Fitness for Miband


I second this. A hybrid setup to use a watch to track heart rate and phone to do sonar and breathing detection would be great.


I love the idea of combining sonar and watch data! It might make overall data more accurate plus the addition of breath tracking would be awesome. Some watches like the new Ticwatch Pro have both a speaker and a microphone. Could the watch itself also act as a sonar sensor?
