When your alarm goes off in the morning, is your first reaction to throw it against the wall? The problem isn’t with you—it’s with your alarm clock. Thankfully, Sleep Cycle offers a clever solution for improving your rest. Rather than yanking you from your slumber at a specific minute, the app analyses your sleep patterns and then picks the moment you’re sleeping lightest (within a half-hour window you define) to rouse you gently. Best of all, unlike some smart alarms, this one doesn’t need extra hardware or require your device to be resting on your bed: it tracks your sleep using just its microphone!
This App Saved My Life!
I have been using the sleep cycle app for almost 2 years now and it has helped my sleep more than anything else. It has also saved my life, hence the title. I upgraded to the premium version and I definitely did not waste my money! Through the morning statistics I found out that I was waking up almost 25-30 times a night and snoring almost 3-4 hours a night consistently. I went to the ENT center and found out that my tonsils and adenoids were restricting my breathing by 75% during the night. I just had surgery two weeks ago and now I do not snore and I am asleep through the entire night! This alarm is intelligent enough that it slowly wakes me up at the time when I’m sleeping the lightest and I wake up feeling refreshed. It also uses Phillips smart bulb technology to slowly turn on your Phillips Hue lights so it won’t jolt you awake. The ONLY issue I have with this app is that sometime the Phillips Hue setting will not work and that is frustrating when I am accustomed to waking up the “sleep cycle” way. For some reason, the app can’t locate the lights I have selected. I have tried restarting the app, my phone, and even the Phillips Main Hub itself to no prevail. However, the next night it could perform perfectly. Maybe the developers will read this and fix it in the next update🤞! I LOVE this application and if you are reading reviews to find out if you want to upgrade to premium...IT IS WORTH THE MONEY!!
The smart alarm is my #1 selection criteria because I am certain that I feel better when woken from a lighter sleep and Sleep Cycle gives me that. I missed that functionality from my old Jawbone fitness band. I loved having a haptic alarm wake me when I was in a light sleep prior to my alarm time. I always woke feeling energetic. When Sleep Cycle killed the Watch app a while back, I stuck with Sleep Cycle because it still did a decent job with smart alarm from my bed stand, except the alarm was audible so it woke up my wife. Now that Watch app is back, I get my haptic smart alarm and sleep tracking. There are competitive apps with more detailed sleep tracking but, for me, the Watch haptic smart alarm makes Sleep Cycle the only sleep tracker I need.
Also to note, I posted an average review this weekend because I thought the Watch tracking feature wasn’t working. The developers quickly responded and clarified. Apparently, I had either done something wrong or had last tried it when the Watch app first came back and tracking wasn’t syncing properly to my phone. But as of now, Sleep Cycle on iPhone and Apple Watch is exactly what I want, and it still works well if I forget to charge my Watch before bed. Thanks to them for monitoring and responding directly to reviewers.
