I'm looking to get a sleep tracker but I wonder which one is the most efficient. For now, I think about acquiring the new Hello Sense with Voice (https://www.producthunt.com/post...) but I've read some good and also bad reviews, apparently, it doesn't accurately track your sleep. The Withings Aura (https://www.withings.com/uk/en/p...) seems to be pretty good too but also more expensive if you want to track your sleep with their Sleep Sensor Accessory that you put under your mattress.
- I've used pretty much every sleep tracker out there for iOS and AppleWatch. Sadly, most of them are complete garbage. Pillow is the best one I have found. There is a great balance between form and function. Beautiful interface, great charts to see statistics over time, and nice recommendations for better sleep. My favorite feature is that tracks your sleep patterns over time and sends you a push notification ahead of your optimal bed time.
- 8Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock 5.0This is an amazing alarm clock first with a really nice sleep tracking feature. Basically it tracks your movements at night and tries to wake you up based on your REM cycles. You can optionally add "notes", which will try to find patterns in your sleep based on your daily actions. For example, my notes are "drank coffee", "gym", "ate late", etc. So before I sleep, I select whichever of these apply to me, and then it analyzes my average sleep data given these properties and shows me whether they generally add or detract from my sleepI agree, Sleep Cycle is good. Easy to use and the analytics are pretty reliable. Taking notes are useful to track what impacts your sleep
- Sleep Cycles tracks your sleep patterns through movement and can give you a gentle nudge in the morning when you're in a period of light sleep. On paper that puts it on a par with the other apps here, but Sleep Cycle has earned rave reviews for its accuracy and its ease-of-use, so it must be doing something right. The developers say you should place your phone on a corner of your mattress just before you go to sleep for the best results.
