Morpheuz 4.3 - On watch sleep charts

New this release are sleep charts.

Every day Morpheuz creates a 'Morpheuz Summary' timeline pin. This tells you how much sleep you've had or not had. It looks like this:

A summary pin is timed to appear just after the alarm goes off or 11 hours after bed time was pressed, whichever happens sooner.

Pressing the select button gets this menu to appear:

This is the magic bit. Press select again and you get a little chart:

Light blue bands represent restless sleep, medium blue bands light sleep and dark blue bands deep sleep. Across the bottom of the chart is a yellow line that shows the duration of your sleep. Within this bottom border are a green and red blob showing the points where the smart alarm was set for earliest and latest. If you use the ignore feature then that is shown as a vertical light grey band. The medium grey at the end is where there was no recording.

The chart is also available from inside the Morpheuz app too, as "chart" on the menu.

Unfortunately there wasn't enough memory space on the watch to add this option to the Pebble and Pebble Steel.

This app requires your Pebble, Pebble Steel, Pebble Time, Pebble Time Steel or Pebble Time Round to be running Pebble Watch v3.11.1 (or later)

If the latest version you can get from the Pebble App Store is 3.7 then please read Updated software for Classic Pebbles

Morpheuz & Smartbulbs

A recent email suggested it'd be great if Morpheuz could turn on smart bulbs when the alarm goes off. It already can and has been able to for many releases, however checking through you'd have some trouble finding the information.

Support is provided directly for LIFX and Phillips Hue bulbs.

Go into the Morpheuz settings and scroll down. Expand the section, fill in the details and save.

Clicking on the 'Test before...' checkbox will attempt to set the lights based on the settings you've entered rather than waiting until morning to discover the details were wrong.

Should you not have LIFX or Phillips Hue bulbs, then, if support for your bulbs is available under IFTTT, it is possible to set this up and use the 'morpheuz_alarm' event to turn on the lights too. Or the internet enabled coffee machine.

Note: the Phillips Hue interface will not change a light that is already on.

Note: these features require that your Pebble remain connected to you phone and it retains a connection to the internet.
