Top 10 Sleep Tracking Apps for Androidby Bobby Clarke Developer
Research has shown that sleep is equally important for the body as exercise and while many apps have emerged to track fitness, some apps can track your sleep to give you insights. Whether you are troubled with lack of sleep or have a snoring problem, sleep-tracking apps have become one of the most popular apps as smartwatches and smart bands have been launched into the market. While Apple’s ecosystem of devices is capable of delivering stellar analysis reports, Android apps and devices have been catching up with upgrades in hardware and software.
Sleep tracking is a new way to keep your body in check. Many are unaware of the fact that there are various stages of sleep and each one is significantly important to provide your mind and body with some rest. For you to get some peaceful sleep and improve on your issues, we have compiled a list of Android apps that can help you track your sleep. The list is as follows.

- Do I Snore or Grind
This app is mainly focused on people who have snoring issues. The app lets you record your sleep and keep track of every time you snore or grind your teeth. The best part about the app is its ability to run in airplane mode. This lets you extend your sleep-tracking even when the internet is not necessarily available. The free version lets your record up to 5 nights but its pro version removes this limit.
- Google Fit

The app allows you to connect with all kinds of wearables including Samsung’s Galaxy Gear devices, Pebble, and Android Wear devices. One of the most original features that many apps have taken inspiration from is the alarm that makes you solve a captcha to turn off the alarm.

- Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock

This is one of the simplest apps on the list. While the app does not provide a host of extensive features, it records you every time you snore.
