Mobvoi’s new app, TicSleep is giving leading tech companies a run for their money. TicSleep is a new sleep tracking app that helps you get the best quality sleep possible. It slid in ahead of Apple’s big plans for a sleep-cycle app in 2019, and claimed its spot as one of the best sleep apps in the app store.
TicSleep has some great features. It tracks your sleep patterns automatically without you having to let it know you’re about to settle in for the night. As long as you’re comfortable wearing a watch to sleep, this could revolutionize your ability to get a good night’s sleep.
Why You Should Download TicSleep
Have you ever woken up from a nap to feel like you hadn’t slept at all? Chances are, you probably woke up at the wrong point in your sleep cycle. When you’re sleeping, your body goes through a cycle of dreaming, or REM, all the way to deep sleep and back again. TicSleep can sense this. The app will wake you gently at the perfect time in your sleep cycle with a customizable alarm.
You can look at an analysis of your most recent sleep time and compare it with a report of the last week right on your watch. Your data is saved, allowing you to see trends in your sleeping patterns over time.
Mobvoi has also come out with a few other apps as well, including TicExercise, TicHealth, and TicPulse. Like TicPulse, TicSleep is able to monitor your heart rate while you are sleeping to give you additional data that can improve your sleeping pattern. And who doesn’t need a better night’s sleep?
Compatible Smart Watches
So far, only watches on the Wear OS platform are compatible with TicSleep. This leaves some very limited options. Right now, the watches that can run TicSleep include TicWatch Pro and the TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE.
Some claim that because Fossil Smart Watches share a similar Wear OS platform that they can install this as well, although this hasn’t been verified. For now, it is just those two watches that are able to handle the TicSleep app.
How To Download TicSleep
Right now, TicSleep is only available in the Google Play Store. To download the app, you will need to go into the Google Play app to search for it. You should be accessing this through your smartwatch, since TicSleep is not accessible through your phone or desktop.
The app will be called TicSleep for Wear OS by Mobvoi Information Technology Company Limited. It is listed under the Health and Fitness apps section. The icon is a white, three-quarter moon on a blue gradient background. Once you find it, you can select the green button labeled, “Install” and this will download the app onto your smartwatches.
Once you have your TicSleep app on your TicWatches, you’re ready to start tracking. You should have your watch on before its time for you to go to bed. Then, keep it comfortably on your wrist through the night. The watches and app are safe to use for the full, 8 hours recommended for adults. It’s that easy to get a better night’s sleep.
