App to analyze your sleep cycles

Sleep is mysterious. But sleep-tracking apps promise to help you understand when you cross the threshold between waking and sleeping—and what happens in between. For people who want an uncomplicated interface with an intuitive design, we recommend SleepScore (which works a lot better with iPhones than with Android phones) as well as Sleep Cycle (which is as compatible with Android models as it is with iPhones).After more than a hundred hours of research, including interviews with eight sleep scientists, and more than a month spent testing four popular sleep-tracking apps (along with a range of wearables, including the Oura Ring), we found that no app offers objectively accurate sleep analysis, and they can’t replicate the experience of a traditional sleep lab. But you can use them to glean trends and patterns, which may help you improve your sleep over time.If you have an iPhone or a compatible Android phone, we think SleepScore (iOS, Android) will do the best job of helping you improve your sleep. It allows you to set sleep goals and gives actionable advice for reaching them. It also provides more detailed sleep-stage data than most other apps, and in our tests, its smart alarm did a pretty good job of waking us up slowly, so we felt less groggy. The free version provides general sleep advice and a record of your sleep for seven days at a time. For $50 a year (or $6 per month), SleepScore tracks and records your sleep reasonably accurately for the long term and helps you create a path toward improvement. SleepScore’s main flaw is that it only works with iPhone 6 and higher and a limited number of Android phones.
