Best Fitness Apps: Sleep Cycle
Available for: iOS
Cost: 99 cents
Exercise and nutrition get most of the attention when it comes to fitness, but there’s another important aspect that tends to get ignored: sleep.
Getting a full, restful sleep is just as important as being active and eating well. But most people have a difficult enough time finding time for sleep, and even when you can carve out the time, it doesn’t mean you’ll sleep well.
That’s where Sleep Cycle comes in. This fitness app aims to help you understand your sleep patterns and wake you up when you’re feeling most rested.
Sleep Cycle measures your movement in bed and uses it to track when you’re in deep sleep vs. light sleep, and wakes you up when you’re closest to being awake, which helps you avoid long days of grogginess.
