Sleep cycle is continuously rated as the best smart alarm clock, Sleep Cycle is now the worlds most used intelligent alarm clock.
* Sleep Cycle monitors your movement during sleep using the extremely sensitive accelerometer in your iPhone.
* Sleep Cycle then finds the optimal time to wake you up during a 30 minute window that ends at your set alarm time.
* Look at the screenshots for recommended iPhone placement.
As you sleep you go through different phases, ranging from deep sleep to light sleep. The phase you are in when your alarm goes off is critical for how tired you will feel when you wake up.
Since you move differently in bed during the different phases, Sleep Cycle can use the accelerometer in your iPhone to monitor your movement and determine which sleep phase you are in.
Sleep Cycle wakes you when you are in your lightest sleep phase.
Sleep Cycle was developed using proven sleep science and years of research and development.

Back to healthy cycles
The app has helped me focus on my sleep cycles and therefore be able to improve my sleep for the first time in over a decade. As a result of the app features I have become conscious of sleep notes and the various outcomes on sleep quality. Finally I have managed to get back to my natural cycles without even using the alarm but still tracking my sleep quality. I now sleep the recommended amount of 7-8 hrs every night and wait up at the same time each day without an alarm!
I've been using this app for well over a year and it has helped me focus on my sleep patterns - I sort of already knew that I needed to get to bed earlier, but seeing it graphed and having data makes it real!
Waking up is easier too - another rater correctly noted that you usually feel like you're already awake when the alarm goes off...which is better than being jarred out of a sleep!
Best health app on my phone
This app has had a huge effect on the reformation of my habits, understanding of my personal health and requirements. Increasing my awareness by linking together activities that have both positive and negative effects on my sleep, and by extension my health as a whole. I feel that everyone should be using sleep cycle, and would be far better off if they were!
