There are many alarm apps trying to find the right sleep phase but they may wake you up 20 minutes too early or late. “Gentle Wakeup” is an app that turns your Android device into a sunrise simulator which wakes you up by light. The change from an alarm clock to a wake up light can make an incredible difference from feeling dizzy the whole day to waking up refreshed in the most natural way.
There are two types of people in the world when it comes to mornings: The “Early birds and Night Owls.”
Early birds can wake up immediately when the alarm clock rings to get ready for the day, whereas, the Night Owls have the same energy in the evening but when it comes to waking up in the morning, they hit the snooze button over and over again.
Since the working life is designed for the Early Bird group kind of people, this becomes a huge problem to the Night Owls. They get torn out of the deep sleep phase by a loud noise which was an indication of danger.
With the “Gentle Wakeup App,” a wake up light the body will start a biological process to leave the deep sleep phase and prepare for the wake up. The app will shift the light sleep phase exactly to the desired wake up time. This perhaps will help the Night Owl category.
The success of the app in waking up refreshed at an exact time is based on the high controllability of the wake up process and all alarms start weak and rise gently during a specified time to a final intensity level.
