New to your Rest 2nd gen or Rest+ 2nd gen? Here are some common FAQs for our Favorites feature!
What is a Favorite?
A Favorite is a light/sound combination that you use over and over again. It's your bedtime go-to, diaper change helping hand, and your late-night feeding partner.
On the Hatch Sleep app home screen, favorites appear as either a circle or a square. Circles mean the sound contained in the Favorite is a free sound, available to all Rest 2nd gen and Rest+ 2nd gen users. Squares mean the sound contained in the Favorite is only available with an active Hatch Sleep Membership.
Favorites are fully customizable and more accessible than ever on Rest 2nd gen and Rest+ 2nd gen. There are 2 ways to play your Favorites at the tap of a finger.
Playing Favorites from the Hatch Sleep app
All of your Favorites are on the Home screen in your Hatch Sleep app. Simply tap the Favorite you'd like to play and your Rest will get it started.
If you're not in the same room as your Rest, you'll be able to tell that the Favorite is playing by looking at the Hatch Sleep app. When a Favorite has started, the Mini Player at the bottom of your screen will display what the Rest is playing.
You can tap the Stop button on the right of the Mini Player at any time to stop the content that's currently playing. By tapping anywhere on the Mini Player bar, the Expanded Player will open (see below). This is where you can make adjustments to the light, sound, volume, and brightness settings of your Favorite on the fly.
Please note: These adjustments do NOT save to your Favorite. They will only adjust the Favorite that is currently playing. By tapping into a different Favorite, any adjustments to volume or brightness will NOT carry over. These will default to the original settings of the new Favorite you selected.
Playing Favorites using the touch ring
All of your Favorites are accessible via the touch ring on top of your device. Simply tap the metal touch ring on top of your Rest– a finger, elbow, chin or even toe will do– to start the first Favorite in your list. Keep tapping until you find the Favorite you want to play.
At any time, you can stop the content by tapping and holding the touch ring for about 3 seconds. Adjusting the brightness and volume is easy with the buttons on the back of your device.
Please note: Adjusting the settings using the buttons on the back of your device does NOT save the settings to your Favorite. They will only adjust the content that is currently playing. By tapping to the next Favorite, any adjustments to volume or brightness will NOT carry over. These will default to the original settings of the new Favorite you selected.
