Get FREE access to premium features until 2023! Experience the revolutionary gentle alarm and sleep tracker that senses your movements with "silent sonar" technology.

Wake up fresh with the revolutionary motion-sensing sleep tracker and smart alarm clock app.

Sleepwave has invented new “silent sonar” technology to sense movements near your phone. We use this to track your sleep, wake you up better with gentle alarm sounds, and power unique visualizations that respond to your movement.

• Wake up better and feel more energized with Sleepwave’s motion-sensing smart alarm. Set a time window around when you need to wake up and the smart alarm clock will sound when you’re naturally awakening.

• Sleepwave transforms your phone into a contactless sleep tracker using silent sonar technology. With detailed, easy-to-understand charts and graphs, you can understand your sleep cycle, patterns and habits over time.

• Wavescapes are interactive visualizations that respond to your movements without having to touch your phone. Choose and play with different patterns to help refresh or focus your mind.

• Why should a wake up be alarming? Choose from original alarm sounds composed by renowned musicians, or wake up gently with a "soft awakening" soundscape before the main alarm. At night, you can fall asleep to a collection of sounds from the natural world.

• Sleepwave’s haptic smart alarm for the Apple Watch is linked to your body movements. Rather than setting a fixed alarm time, you set a 15-minute time window and Sleepwave will wake you up at a great moment with silent taps on your wrist.

• Fall asleep or wake up to your favorite music or select from playlists specifically designed for sleep.
• Write your sleep data to Apple Health.

• No login is required to use the app. We don’t collect your personal details. Sleepwave uses your phone’s microphone to detect movement but no audio data leaves your phone.

• Everybody’s sleep is different. If you stay out late with your friends, Sleepwave is a sleep tracker that won’t judge you with a bad sleep score. Instead, the app empowers you to understand your sleep and set your own goals.

• Smart alarm and sleep tracking are free for everyone. Some additional features are accessed with a great value annual subscription.

Sleepwave Premium gives you:

• Detailed breakdown of sleep stages showing light, deep and REM sleep
• Weekly, monthly and yearly sleep patterns
• More Wavescapes to help you focus, relax and play
• Soft awakening feature to ease your wake up
• More alarm sounds
• Apple Music integration
• Soothing sounds to help you fall asleep
• Additional color themes
• More premium features coming soon


Sleepwave offers a 7-day free trial as well as a free version. If you choose to subscribe, you will be charged a yearly subscription fee according to your country. The subscription fee will be shown in the app before you complete the payment. Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of each subscription term unless auto-renewal is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the term. Subscription renewals cost the same as the original subscription, and your credit card will be charged through your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase.

You may manage your subscription and turn off auto-renewal at any time after purchase by going to your iTunes Account Settings. Refunds will not be given for any unused portion of the term.

Seriously helpful

As someone who is used to snoozing a handful of times every morning, I wasn’t prepared for a free app to truly change the way my days start. Before downloading this app, I was awoken by loud alarms and would delay the start of my day by 30 minutes usually. Now, I wake up gently and usually feeling pretty refreshed. The technology works and I’m so glad that this app is free, allowing more people to experience it. I also love the option to play rain noise as you’re getting ready to fall asleep. Can’t wait to see what other features are added as time goes on.

Amazing, and has the potential to be even cooler

This app is exactly what I was look for for gentle awakening. From the first time I tried it, waking up was significantly less painful that it usually is. It will never make you feel like you are jolted awake by a sudden alarm. The technology for sleep cycle tracking is amazing. I think it would be cool to add a customizable gentle awakening choice. Also, this technology is very promising for those who want to lucid dream - If there was a way to play custom sounds or music when the app detects your in your REM stage, it could reach a whole new market

Thanks so much for you review! You are totally right that there is a lot more that we can do with the technology. Please get in touch with us at support@sleepwave.con. We are interested to recruit testers to help us explore some ideas we’ve been dreaming about…

Super unique! Amazing technology!

I fell in love with this app! It has many unique features such as the smart alarm where you can choose to wake up gently from a duration of 15 minutes or more! However, one of my favorite parts of the app was the Wavescapes which is found in the “Relax” tab. I felt as though it really did relax me and the Wavescapes were so mesmerizing to watch! I highly recommend this app to anyone who wants to track their sleep patterns but also wants help getting to sleep and waking up gently instead of using your standard and abrupt alarms.
