Called “NightWare”, this application in the Apple Watch analyzes the sleep of watch owners and sends vibrations in case of nightmares.

How does it work?

Using its sensors, Apple’s connected watch monitors the patient’s movement and heart rate while he or she sleeps.

The data is then sent to the NightWare server. The application then creates a user-specific sleep profile.

Once this is done, the watch automatically starts vibrating when it detects that the user is having a nightmare. This will interrupt the nightmare without waking the user up.

The results of the first tests of the application are positive. In particular, an improvement in the quality of sleep of the patients has been observed.

However, the Food and Drug Administration states that the application takes an average of ten days to collect the data needed to design the user’s sleep profile.

In addition, it also states that the application should not be used by sleepwalkers.

For the moment, NightWare is only available in the United States. Intended for people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, its use requires a medical prescription.
