Waking up made easy
Sleep Cycle is an intelligent alarm clock that tracks your sleep patterns and wakes you up in light sleep - the natural way to wake up, feeling rested and energized. No need to place your device in bed - Sleep Cycles uses sound analysis sleep tracking.
How it works
• As you sleep, you go through different sleep phases, ranging from light to deep sleep and back again. The sleep phase you are in when your alarm goes off is critical for how rested you will feel when you wake up.
• While you sleep, your movements vary depending on what sleep phase you are in. Sleep Cycle’s patented sound technology tracks your sleep patterns using sound or vibration analysis, monitoring your movements in bed throughout the different sleep phases.
• Sleep Cycle finds the optimal time when you are in light sleep to wake you up in the morning, during a predefined 30 minute time window that ends at your set alarm time. Waking up in light sleep feels like waking up naturally without an alarm, leaving you feeling rested and energized.
• All you need to do is turn Sleep Cycle on before going to bed, and place your device on your nightstand or close by on the floor.

Ratings and Reviews
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 analyzes 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!
Outstanding App of its type
I was one of the first people to buy this app many years ago and still use it through many upgrades. I’ve purchased and installed many similar apps, including ones attempting to use the Apple Watch to detect sleep state and they all fall short of Sleep Cycle. This app is precise, reliable and simple to use as well as loaded with features. (You don’t want to be setting up buggy apps in both phone and watch, unreliable alarms makes you anxious) Moreover the displays of sleep state and snoring sounds are easy to understand. Sleep cycle uses algorithms working of the microphone and has always worked through air conditioning sound even those noisy portable units for me. You can switch it to use the motion sensor in which case you must leave the phone on the mattress. The snooze alarm is brilliant because the snooze intervals shorten each time, making it impossible to overs snooze and resets by simply moving the phone.
Great app with little Improvement needed
I use this app on regular basis for the past 5 years. Highly recommended as I do feel good everytime I wake up in the morning with its intelligent alarm clock. 1. However, I doubt the accuracy of the microphone function as opposed to accelerometer as its motion detection. As other reviews have stated that whenever fan is used, the microphone would detect it incorrectly (I use fan most of the time at night). 2. Another thing is, it would be great if it has the function to have the alarm set on everyday automatically (just like iOS native alarm clock) without me having to open the app and manually set it on all the time. Overall it is still a wonderful app to use on daily basis! Thank you very much!
