What is it: Sleep Cycle is an app that analyses your sleep patterns and wakes you at the best time possible. No more sudden rousing out of a dream that might ruin the entire day!
How it works: Before you go to sleep, set your alarm and place your phone face down on the corner of your bed. As you sleep, you go through various sleep phases, ranging from light to deep sleep in a cyclical fashion. The sleep phase you are in when your alarm goes off is critical for how tired or rested you feel when you wake up.
Sleep Cycle app uses the phone’s accelerometer and microphone to monitor your activity and determines the state of sleep you are in. It will only wake you up when you are lightly dozing, instead of jolting you from a deep slumber.
Best for: Anyone who aspires to have a perfect wake-up by optimizing their sleep quality data.
Value Offering: Sleep Cycle app automatically syncs your activities with the statistics of your sleep. For example, a plotted graph shows how the number of steps you walked in the day affects your sleep quality at night.
You can also add your own notes before you sleep for your own research purposes, such as how the effects of reading an e-book before bed affect your sleep. This gives us more control in adjusting our behavior for the most optimal sleep. Nevertheless, the number of hours is still one of the greatest contributory factors, as tried and tested by yours truly. 😉
