Technology and Sleep: Must-Have Sleeping Apps

On top of medical conditions that require treatment from doctors, there are plenty of influences that can keep you from getting the proper night’s sleep that you deserve, and need. The stresses of life, relationships, financial aspects, and even the weather are all things that are attributed to your sleep deficiencies. Regardless of if you require help falling and staying asleep, getting out of bed in the morning, or just need help relaxing, these apps can help you do it.

smart-sleep-systemWithings Aura Smart Sleep System

 As one of the most popular sleeping systems, the product is designed by Nokia Technologies and offers an array of benefits. The system provides you with a high-technology alarm clock that’s hidden within a lamp. It rejuvenates and revolutionizes your conscious experience by delivering customizable music and energy lights. The included sensors work to monitor your room temperature, and the sleep sensor stays under your mattress. Additionally, the Smart Sleep System tracks your sleep duration and uses the results to wake you up at the right time.

Pzizz App

 The Pzizz app is recommended by both J.K. Rowling and NBA star Roy Hibbert. It’s been featured in Sports Illustrated, Wired, Engadget, The New York Times, and many more publications. It has combined neurolinguistics, sound effects, and timed binaural beats to submit you to relax and ease your mind. The app has a patented algorithm that offers a different soundtrack each time it’s used and has more than 100 billion of them.

Muse: The Brain Sensing Headband

 As one of the highest forms of meditation technology, the muse headband is a powerful source that works to bring you total relaxation and clarity of mind. It’s been featured on Bloomberg, CBC, CBS, Fortune and more. The headband works in coordination with a simulated app that calibrates itself and takes a screenshot of your brain. Muse uses the information to understand your signals. The app changes your brain activity into the wind, so you know just how active or calm your mind is by the strength of the wind gusts. After each of your meditation sessions, you’re provided with an in-depth analysis through graphs and charts. The system also offers focus-based training.

UHP app

 Beauxapps, Apps for Humans, have developed the most enjoyable, and reliable, way to wake up in the morning. The UHP app promises that you’ll never be late again, and has been praised on CNET, Lifehacker, and Business Insider. It has a specially designed path-tracking algorithm that learns the path you take from your bed to the place you need to be after you wake-up. For example, if you usually wake up and head to the coffee machine, the UHP alarm is not going to shut off until you get out of bed and make it to the coffee machine.

Snap Me Up App

 Unlike the other apps that were mentioned, Snap Me Up doesn’t use a precise algorithm to understand your brain waves, or be able to tell if you’ve hit REM sleep. However, the app does open up the front-facing camera for you. Unless you want your alarm to ring all day, you need to go to a well-lit area or turn on the light to be able to dismiss the alarm.

sleepAs technology continues to grow, so does the list of apps that help you fall into a deep sleep. These apps have been specially engineered to help everyone with their sleep quality, and studies have shown that a lack of good sleep has affected the global economy. Studies have also suggested that nearly 50% of Americans suffer from insufficient sleep, and have dished out more than $43 billion on sleep aids.
