Sleep Cycle – Sleep Tracker
The first on our list of the best sleep tracker app is Sleep Cycle which is available on both Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Personally, I used to find it very difficult to wake up and get out of my bed but a friend of mine recommended it to me and it’s my best sleep tracker app since then.
Sleep Cycle aims to help you relax, sleep better and wake up feeling more energized with its advanced sleep tracking features.
Sleep aid lets you relax and fall asleep very easily and the app wakes you up when you’re in the lightest phase of your sleep. It also provides you with very detailed sleep stats and graphs enabling you to analyze and improve your sleep quality.
All you need to do to use this app is to connect your phone charger and put your phone near your bed before going to sleep, so that it can track your sleep without any interruptions.
It’s also one of the best Apple Watch sleep tracker apps enabling you to get even more detailed analysis as Apple Watch is able to monitor your heart rate.
You can use many of the features it provides for free. Sleep Cycle also offers a Premium Plan which costs $49.99 per year.
Let’s continue with Fitbit which is, in fact, a workout app but it is also very good a sleep tracker app. It’s available on both Android and iOS stores.
You can use Fitbit to track basic activity stats but in order to use it to track your sleep, improve your sleep quality and access the app’s sleep tools like Sleep Score, you need a Fitbit tracker or a smart watch/Apple Watch.
You can download and use Fitbit for free but if you’re looking for more advanced features, you can get Fitbit Premium Monthly for $9.99 and Fitbit Premium Annual for $79.99.
If you’re planning to use Fitbit Premium, you can try it for 3 months free.

Just like SleepCycle, its smart alarm clock finds the most optimal time to wake you up and its detailed sleep reports enable you to analyze your sleep. It also lets you listen to important audio events during your sleep such as snoring, sleep talking and sleep apnea.
You can also use this app without an Apple Watch, simply putting your phone next to your bed. However, it’s best to use it with an Apple Watch.
