About this app

Transform your Wear OS watch into a smart alarm clock that lets you wake up well.
Wake up alert and in the right mood!

Can’t remember the last time you woke up fresh and energised? Are you stuck in an endless cycle of sleeping through or ignoring your alarm clock?

Based on maximising the science of sleep, Wake Up Well has been designed to wake you up at the optimal time. Unlike the traditional alarm clock, which works to wake you up at a specific time, Wake Up Well wakes you up gently with vibrations at the optimal time – when you’re rested, relaxed and in REM or Rapid Eye Movement sleep.

What is REM?
REM Sleep was identified by sleep researchers as a phase in sleep in which a person sleeps lightly. It occurs throughout various times during sleep; one of the last instances it occurs is close to morning. It is said that during REM, the brain activity behaves similar to the brain activity during hours you are awake.

How it works
Wake Up Well detects the optimal time to wake you up. When using alarm clocks, most people’s bodies are not yet prepared or still in deep sleep. Notice that when you wake via your alarm clock’s command you’re often groggy, have a cloudy mind and lacking in energy? That’s because your body is still in deep sleep. With Wake Up Well, you’re gently awoken during REM – when your brain is more active and your body is naturally ‘waking up’.

Wake Up Well detects your slight movements during REM and in the ‘wake up window’ you set. It is during this time Wake Up Well monitors when to wake you up.

Start the day with more energy with Wake Up Well.

To set an alarm first open Wake Up Well on your watch. Touch "New alarm", then scroll to the time you need to wake up. This is the latest time the alarm will go off.
Swipe to the right for options. The wake up window will determine the earliest time the alarm will wake you up - based on your sleep pattern. After setting your wake up window swipe to the right again and touch the days you want the same alarm to repeat. If you want just a single use alarm do not touch any days. Once you have finished setting your alarm, swipe left to return to the original screen and swipe again to receive a confirmation window.

Use the ‘Wake Up Well’ Complication on new Watch Faces to show the next alarm time.

I have the Fossil Gen 5 Carlyle HR watch. Using the default settings, the app requires significant movement to trigger the alarm. Thankfully the dev replied to my review w/ instructions on adjusting sensitivity since this ability wasn't intuitive. I changed it to the highest sensitivity (+4) and it worked fine. It's easy to set an alarm nightly. I receive watch reminders to set an alarm. If you find this inconvenient, pay a few bucks to support the dev's work and get recurring alarms.

UPDATED REVIEW: This app is superb for a watch-only smart alarm. The design of the app is perfect for the limited interface offered by a watch face, and the host of features (now including sensitivity!) is exactly what I need! I've been using it for the past few months now without complaint! Excellent job by this dev. REVIEW FOR AN OLDER VERSION: Great app. Really like how it’s localized on the watch and works reliably. Two reasons I’m giving 4 instead of 5 stars and not going premium - 1) This app definitely needs a sensitivity setting to compensate for different watches. On my Fossil Gen 5, it alarms within 5 minutes of the window without fail, way too sensitive. 2) I’d like to be able to view the data somehow - emails or something. Because of 1) I won’t continue using the app, thanks for the trial though. I thought that not including recurring alarms was a reasonable move for the free version. I’d definitely support this app if the sensitivity setting is implemented. That being said, it’s the only reliable app of its kind on the Play Store at the moment, so I’d love to see that feature added!

I have the premium version and its good app but Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 slows down significantly when this app is operating. An update is required.
