No gimmicks - everyone can get a better night of sleep and using this alarm clock WILL improve your sleep. Other alarm clocks on the app store claim that by waking you up in a lighter stage of sleep it improves your grogginess, but scientific evidence has not proven this an effective way to improve sleep. What is far more important is falling to bed at the right time and getting the right amount of sleep. This smart alarm clock tracks your sleep and recommends the best time for you to go to sleep and wake up. The more you use the application, the more accurate it gets. The app also provides personalized feedback on behaviors related to sleep, such as, productivity, exercise, diet, mood, relaxation, medication, alcohol use, nicotine use, and caffeine use.
The App includes:
** Patent pending algorithm that gives you feedback every night on the best time for you to go to bed and wake-up.
** Gradual Wake feature (starts relaxing music or sounds 10 minutes before your alarm is set, preparing your body to wake-up).
** The Proactive Equation that determines what is affecting your sleep.
** Sleep diary modeled on ones used in sleep labs.
** Set your alarm and fall asleep to any song in your iTunes.
** Fall asleep to the calm sounds included in the app.
