I just want to make things clear, Battery Care does currently not make use of the alarm clock. I understand your thoughts on this though and have forwarded this as user feedback.
@Kane_1371 You don't have to go to bed and get up the exact same time every day but if no regular charging cycles can be detected, it may be difficult to get the most out of the feature. I don't have any information on how long it can take for Battery Care to learn your schedule but you will receive a notification when you connect to a charger saying that Battery Care is active. The phone will remember the collected data as long as you don't factory reset your device.

It's a fairly useless gimmick as you have no control over it. Just buy a £4 mechanical wall socket timer and set the phone to start charging 1.5 hours before you intend getting up. I've done it that way for the past few years. The best thing Sony could have done for 'battery health' is put a bigger battery into the XZ, then we wouldn't need to charge it as often.

For me, it's a great feature, exactly because you don't have to actively control it. It's engineered so you get the bonus of a longer battery life-cycle without having to do anything, like having to use some timer for wall socket or programming your charges. You just let the software do that all for you, automatically. Instead of wasting your time with nitpicking charging methods, you just leave it to the software so it automates that for you. Isn't it what most people want, having the technology get things done so you can have more free time?

I like battery care as well
But unfortunately it's absolutely not working on my phone (But my slepp/stand up times are always the same).
It would be great, if we have some kind of settings, for example a little menue where you have a switch between:
- set a manual time to wake-up
- or link with build in alarm clock
thanks sony support for forwarding
