It seems that if I don’t dismiss the bedtime notification and forget to silence my phone, the bedtime notifications keep going. Even when I’ve set an alarm and started tracking sleep, the app doesn’t realize that means I’m sleeping and it keeps sending bedtime notifications every 15 or so minutes.
I had no trouble sleeping at first since I was dead tired. But when I woke up after 4 hours of sleep and tried sleeping again, my phone kept vibrating every once in a while, about just when I was about to fall asleep.
I was too tired to investigate what was going on with my phone but not tired enough to fall asleep instantly and this went on for hours, with my phone waking me up every 15 minutes.
If i didn’t have a train to catch in the morning, i would have just turned my phone off but this was the only thing with an alarm since the hotel i was staying at didn’t have an alarm.
Because of this incident, i disabled the Bedtime notifications, but I’m very appalled and disturbed with the lack of common sense that went into designing the Bedtime Notifications : if someone has set an alarm and/or started tracking sleep, it would not only be unnecessary to continue issuing bedtime notifications ad infinitum but it would disturb me from sleeping in the first place!
