    As the watch is not using a lot of data communication it's using bluetooth low energy. It's unfortunately not possible to turn the bluetooth off but from what I heard is that if the watch detects that you are asleep it turns off it's bluetooth by itself and only syncs 1 time during the night and is then back off again untill you wake up. I have no worry's about this watch. I would be more worried about a smartwatch with WiFi, mobile data or "normal" bluetooth.

    Thank you! That sounds great. Where did you read that the Bluetooth deactivates during nighttime?

    I read it somewhere in this thread before. I don't know where anymore. But it makes sense for me when I look at my night's. When I'm sleeping and wake up in the night after like 4 hours there is no sleep or heart rate data in the app. Then when I wake up (slept for 9 hours) there is sleep and HR data recorded 5 hours into sleeping but when I manually sync it after waking up or wait until it syncs automatically it extends the night to 9 hours.

    I'm sorry I'm not a native english speaker as well.

    So for me I think it only syncs one time a night and that's it. If you don't want any exposure during the night you can get the withings sleep analyzer. That one doesn't transfer anything during sleeping (it says on the product page). Or if you turn off the bluetooth on the phone maybe the watch turns is off as well? That I don't know but you can search bluetooth low energy on the internet it's really not strong.
