Sleep Tracker Programs

By Chris Hutton

There are two key parts to a personal ; the sensor and the app. First, you have to have a proficient fitness/ tracker that can accurately record all of your body movements via an accelerometer. Then you need an app that can gather all of that movement data and turn it into something practical. There are some smartphone apps that do not require a user to wear a fitness tracker in order to determine their sleep state. These apps tend to be less reliable than the fitness-tracker enabled apps, since they aren’t as close to the user’s body. On the flip side, they tend to be cheaper or free.

Here’s a list of the top three tracking programs
