Schedule goodnight mode on Galaxy watch

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hi,

 

During the day, I have my watch face always on, but would like to turn it off at night. Currently, I manually turn on goodnight mode before going to sleep.

 

Is there a way to schedule goodnight mode to automatically turn on at a certain time?

 

Thank you.

Hi guys,

 

Best solution I've found I'd adding good night mode to the quick settings.

 

Go to Settings > Advanced > Edit Quick Settings. Here you can add the Good Night Mode (half moon icon) to your quick action pull down on main screen.

 

Much simpler step to activate Good Night Mode just before bed.

Yes please - first thing I looked up was this functionality. Seems an over-sight.

Think it's supposed to turn on when it detects that you're sleeping, that appears to work however I got up and walked around for 2 hours and it was still on so it doesn't seem to understand when the turn itself off.

I use the Do not disturb function, you can set days and times.  Works the same.

I've been very annoyed by this, too: the various quiet-modes (do-not-disturb, goodnight, theater) seem to have subtle differences in behavior that leave me uncertain how to best apply them. I just don't see a way to do what I want without a lot of manual intervention:

 

I'm enthusiastic about sleep-tracking, so I wear my watch to bed every night. To save battery and avoid disruptions at night, I want to reliably disable AOD, wake-up gesture, *bezel-wakeup*, and all non-alarm sounds/vibrations (including the hourly chime). Several of these settings are not covered by the scheduled do-not-disturb, so further manipulation is necessary. To achieve what I need, I've settled on a strategy that's pretty unsatisfying, but it's the best I could find: I have do-not-disturb scheduled, and then try to remember to activate goodnight-mode to save battery when I go to sleep (... and then also have to remember to disable it again in the morning). When I do remember, this achieves everything I want EXCEPT for the bezel-wakeup toggle: I've found that if I leave bezel-wakeup enabled at night, I accidentally bump the bezel quite often when I'm moving around in bed, and see the screen light up. Since I haven't found a way to toggle that feature conveniently, I've reluctantly disabled it entirely out of frustration.

 

Feels to me as if we need a way to define separate "settings profiles" for different modes, and then activate those profiles on a custom schedule. The existing combinations are just confusing, and ultimately inadequate.

I agree completely. I want to monitor my sleep but the watch keeps waking me up. Ideally I would like a way to program a timetable of sleep times so it is routine and not a hassle when going to bed each time.

Was your sleep monitored with a good night mode on?

I have a watch for 2 days, and first night I've put it on do not disturb settings. My sleep was monitored just fine, and I got the morning digest when I woke up.

But last night, I wanted to check out good night mode, and woke up to realize that my sleep wasnt monitored at all! I did not receive digest eather.

 

I whish thare is a better manual that would explain better, which option does what. It seams to me that Samsung did not put enough effort in developing one. (The one on the web is very modest).

I agree that this is annoying.  Everynight I have to go into advanced setting turn off bezel wake up and turn on Good night mode.  I have to reverse the same in the morning.  I have received notifications around bed time asking if I want to enable Good night mode but it's inconsistent.

Also why is Good night mode an advanced function where Theatre Mode and Airplane mode are easily accessible?  I sleep everynight, I don't fly or go to the Theatre at that frequency.
