    Has anyone used one of these apps, it appears it can do more then a sleepy as well, basically one wear a bracelet that is later hooked into your iphone etc and can show u the info recorded. I believe the bracelet takes into accounts one movements and correlates it with certain sleep patterns, they say they arent as good as a commercial sleep lab but read where one guy compared his app with a sleep study and there wasnt alot of difference.

    I think this would be interesting to see what sort of deep sleep we get and even an alarm that will wake u when not in deep sleep so u dont wake tired. Also a feature is like a pedometer, this could help us pace better.

    I believe these apps are free to cheap but the bracelets are 100 to 150 bucks.

    They sound good but I wondered about accuracy. They say they are accurate even with pets or other people, but I am skeptical about that and other distinguishing.

    I feel more confident with a bracelet, and I did not know about them.

    Yes i have heard of them where people place their phone under their pillow and it works off movement but that just doesnt seem right to me but a bracelet woul;d seem more accurate at picking up movement, i suppose it gives us an idea of the sleep quality maybe???? when it counts i suppose if u wake up feeling like crap then u have probably had a bad night trying to sleep:ill:

    cheers!!
