It should be possible to run sleep tracking on your watch (Android Wear) without needing your phone to be active at the same time.
Sleep tracking takes a decent amount of battery from both the watch and phone, so it would be cool if I could track my sleep without leaving my phone plugged in overnight.
After the tracking is complete, the watch could send the sleeping data to your phone. Audio recordings could be temporarily stored until sending them to the phone in the morning as well.
My guess is that it would be a lot more practical to develop this type of feature with Android Wear 2.0 which is centred around watch independence. A nice sleep tracking UI to go with this would also be awesome.
