    I have the same issue, my Sleep Analyser regularly shows me as having moderate to severe sleep apnea (last night 60+ !!) and yet my Scanwatch shows ‘Few’ Breathing Disturbances and a Sleep Oxygen Saturation Level (Avg) of 98%. I do not believe I have severe Sleep Apnea as I have no symptoms therefore I think the Sleep is reporting incorrect data. I have a ticket in with Withings Support and will update if I hear anything from them.

    Me too, my Sleep analyser reports various levels of sleep apnea, medium or severe, though filling in the screening tests shows I do not have it, and my scanwatch shows normal SpO2 etc.

    I would like to switch the apnea reporting off since I have no confidence in it.

    My Sleep continues to report me as having moderate to severe Sleep Apnea every night but like you I have no issues with SpO2 and no other symptoms via my ScanWatch and I pass the STOP-Bang and Epworth tests.  I do have a low but healthy resting/sleeping heart rate (40-45bpm) which I wonder might be the cause of the report but I just don't know.  I submitted a ticket with all the detail of this issue on 27 Dec 20 to Withings Support but have received no reply which is very disappointing.  I agree it would be nice to turn off the Sleep Apnea function, but I cannot find any way to do this unfortunately.

    My heart rate is much higher than yours recently, 57 last night, but still reports moderate or severs sleep apnea every night.

    My BP monitor reported sounds of valvular heart disease but the doctor found actually I had excess thyroid activity and have been on varied doses of medication to stabilise it for the last 3 or 4 months. My resting heart rate used to be 50-52 and steady, it got higher and was very uneven, it now it averages 57 but is still unsteady.

    Based on my measurements I don't think your low heart rate is an explanation for your sleep apnea report.

    Thanks for the information, other than my low heart rate I would say that all my other signs are unremarkable as I'm pretty fit, healthy and in an acceptable weight range so I cannot come up with an explanation as to why the Sleep records me as having such severe Sleep Apnea, unless it is a problem with the product itself of course.  Prompted by your post I have chased Withings Support so will update if I get a reply, although I suspect it will be the usual auto response of uninstall/reinstall the Sleep, uninstall/reinstall the App, which of course I have already done without making any difference.

    Guys, sleep apnea is complex ... go to your physician and request a in hospital sleep study, with 22 wire ekg, leg sensors, cannula oxygen etc. sleep sensor is great but a vibration sensor under a mattress is unable to conclusively test for this very serious condition

    Thanks for the advice @mcb. I very much agree with you in respect of an accurate diagnosis. Where I am coming from though is that if it weren’t for the Sleep sensor indicating that I have moderate to severe sleep apnea, then I would have no other indication that I have it. I have a Scanwatch that shows ‘few breathing disturbances’ every night, my sleeping SpO2 is c98% every night, I sleep well and am refreshed on waking, and I have no symptoms of sleep apnea. My wife does not notice any of the symptoms when I am asleep. I pass both the Withings suggested tests which say I have low risk. The point therefore being that my belief is the Sleep device is giving me an incorrect indication, rather than me believing I have sleep apnea. I believe other posts are saying the same thing which gives me some reassurance I am not alone in my belief. I am trying to avoid going to see my doctor to undergo the fairly elaborate and probably expensive tests you highlight when my belief is that it is the Sleep device and not my sleep that is a problem. Withings have recently responded and are investigating so I hope to have an update soon.
