Minimalist sleep tracking app NapBot has received an update that brings a range of improvements for both watchOS and iOS components of the app.

napbot
The app uses the new CoreML on-device machine-learning capabilities that come with iOS 13 and watchOS 6 to understand users' sleep patterns, and version 1.3 of NapBot includes a fully independent Apple Watch app for the first time.

That means users no longer have to install the iPhone app to use it. Instead, NapBot can be downloaded directly on their wrist using the dedicated Apple Watch App Store. The only limitation users should be aware of is that the Apple Watch app only shows sleep data from the previous day, whereas the ‌iPhone‌ app offers a full sleep history.

The new dedicated version of the Watch app also comes with a redesigned Siri watch face card, and complications for every type of watch face and every complication position, so there's plenty of display customization to be had.

In addition, there's support for daily notifications for tracked sleep, a new today widget for ‌iPhone‌, a new awake minutes trend with insights, and background tracking for Apple Watch.

NapBot, available on the iOS and watchOS App Stores, runs on a subscription model of $1 per month or $10 per year, but there's a free 7-day trial available so users can try the app before they commit.

Paying a subscription for a sleep tracking app is like throwing money away.

Why does everything have to be a bloody subscription service nowadays?

What happened to charging a few quid for your app, pushing out a few bug fix updates for it and then release a new major version which existing users can either pay a reduced rate to upgrade to or just ignore if they are happy with the older version?

I know it’s only a pound/dollar, but if every app went subscription you’d find it all adds up and fast. It’s kinda like the current fragmented every network having their own streaming service nowadays. You have to have all of them if you want to watch all the shows you are interested in, it’s ridiculous.

Yeah I concur with that, if it’s relying on a server of some sort a subscription is a fair cost. A local app that doesn’t require an external server to function is taking the mick a bit asking for a subscription.

I’m personally waiting for Apple to include native sleep tracking, they were rumoured to be including it in WatchOS 6 but it never happened, here’s hoping WatchOS7 has it. Although you can bet only the next Apple Watch will have it as that will likely have a longer rated battery and that will be the hardware feature you’ll need for it to work to Apple’s standard even though all the watches could probably run it fine.

Why? What's so different between this app and any other subscription app that requires payment just to use it with no extra value-add?
