Latest research shows that people just aren't getting enough sleep. This is why the new Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock has been developed: to help people to get better quality, deeper sleep. This app analyses each user's sleep patterns and wakes them up at the most natural time, helping them to meet their day feeling refreshed and rested.
How the App Works
The Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock works by monitoring sleep, users add the latest time they wish to awaken, and the app will wake them during their period of lightest sleep in the previous half hour. The app uses the phone's own sensors to monitor noise and movement to gauge the depth of sleep, this information is presented on-screen, helping users to make differences to their sleeping patterns. Normal alarm clocks often jolt people from deep sleep, this is an unnatural way to awaken - it interrupts the natural rhythm of sleep and leads to tiredness during the day. This app uses intelligent sleep monitoring to awaken users at the point where their bodies are naturally ready.
Functioning in Use
The Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock is a good tool for helping to improve sleep. However, good sleep involves many factors, and a disturbed night's sleep means that this alarm can still wake users during deep morning sleep. The sleep information could also lead to users worrying, potentially making sleep problems worse! However, it could help when developing new sleeping habits.
