Runtastic is known and is famous for its health / fitness tracking apps such as Runtastic Running & Fitness, Runtastic Road Bike, Runtastic Sit-Ups and many more. The team has now launched ‘Sleep Better’, the app made to keep track of your sleep cycle.
The app is purposed towards helping users improve their sleeping habits by focusing on improving the quality of the sleep a person gets. So instead of relying on wearable fitness trackers to get this job done, users simply place their iPhone with ‘Sleep Better’ installed, next to their pillow to allow the device to track and record their sleeping patterns.
Fully integrated with iOS 8 HealthKit, all recorded data will be communicated to the centralized fitness collection point that HealthKit is. Sleep Better will be utilizing the sensors in your iPhone to collect data of your sleep duration, sleep cycles and sleep efficiency as you sleep and establish a pattern based on the learned data.
The app also makes use of a Smart Alarm feature which will help you wake up at an ideal time within your personalized wake-up window. Alarms can be annoying depending on the urgency of waking up, so Runtastic has thrown in an array of alarm tones along with snooze functionality to help you wake up in a better manner.
That feeling of waking up from some dream and having no recollection of it, will sound all too familiar to almost everyone. Sleep Better brings in a Dream Diary which lets you note down what you dreamt about, along with the type of dream; good, bad, or neutral. Pretty handy if you wish to look back a few months.
Sleep Better will keep a complete log and track of all your inputs, as well as data collected from the sensors in your iPhone during your sleep, all within an interface that is truly modern and clean. Users can see their daily stats and overviews of longer time periods.
Sleep Better is completely free for download, and is compatible with iOS 7 and onwards. While the app is compatible with the iPad, it has been optimized for the iPhone 5, 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
