Waking up to a blaring alarm in the morning, right in the middle of peaceful, deep sleep is a daily struggle for most high schoolers. Now, instead of trudging through the morning half-asleep, students can download Sleep Cycle to help them out.
An interactive alarm clock, Sleep Cycle tracks sleep patterns and wakes users up during light sleep in order to leave them feeling refreshed and well-rested in the morning. Users input the 30-minute time interval in which they want to be woken up and Sleep Cycle uses the collected data to wake people up when they are in their lightest sleep. In addition, the app tracks the quality and amount of sleep users get with helpful graphs showing sleep disturbances or uninterrupted intervals. Through sound analysis technology, Sleep Cycle tracks movements during sleep and identifies when bodies are in different sleep states. It gives helpful statistics such as the times during which users are asleep, how many hours they slept and a percentage ranking of the quality of their sleep.
Sleep Cycle can help stressed-out and sleep-deprived teenagers manage their sleeping habits and is an absolute must-have for any student who wants to wake up feeling well-rested and relaxed.
