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!
Poor/deceptive practices ruin a great app
I purchased the original version of sleep cycle prior to the subscription model, and it’s been very solid during that time. As I liked this app I also downloaded lifecycle (their life tracking app) which in theory should integrate with sleep cycle. I paid for a subscription for that app, only to discover unless I pay $40/year for a subscription here as well - for just one feature - I can’t use the integration between the two apps.
I totally get that they need ongoing funds to support the development of their apps, but it makes for a poor experience for long time users who have already paid if they can’t use the integration. I was more than happy to pay for the lifecycle subscription (which I have done) but this leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
It’s a real pity as the sleep cycle app is a great app, and does its job very well. I especially like that it knows that I have a partner in bed based on her app as well. Hopefully they sort out their practices and I can continue to support these apps.
Not happy !
I have been using this app for over a year paying quarterly payments as per your payment structuring. All my payments have been on time but yet you have not updated my AP and now it’s not working .
Gutted ! Loved it !! No one has emailed me back ... very disappointed !
