Circular® smart alarm clock: How to wake up with motivation and energy while getting rid of sleep inertia

The Circular smart alarm clock is designed for you if you are tired of waking up in a bad mood but would rather wake up with energy. That’s for you if you are looking to empower your daily life by feeling at the top of your mental and physical performances as soon as you wake up.

Understanding Sleep Inertia

Sleep inertia, the post-awakening sleepiness and grogginess, can hinder your productivity and focus. This phenomenon arises from a temporary reduction in task efficiency due to a portion of your body still being in a sleep state. Learn how Circular's smart alarm can combat sleep inertia and elevate your mornings to new levels of energy and motivation.

Sleep inertia can last anywhere from 1 minute to over 3 hours, and its severity peaks when waking up from REM and deep sleep stages. Its effects can be observed in:

  • Drowsy driving
  • Low productivity in the first part of the day
  • Reduction in memory ability
  • Low performance and response time on tasks, loss of concentration
  • Impairment of the capability to make decisions

Several factors influence sleep inertia, including genetics, sleep efficiency, and the sleep stage from which you awaken.

Of course, sleep inertia is dependent on several factors, such as your genetics, sleep efficiency, how long you have been asleep and the sleep stage in which you woke up.

Optimize Your Wake-Up

Each sleep stage serves vital physiological and neurological functions crucial for overall health. Waking up at the end of a sleep stage, specifically during light sleep, can leave you feeling naturally refreshed and alert. Circular's smart alarm is the key to achieving this.

How the Smart Alarm Works

Create an alarm in the Circular app's Alarm Clock circle, ensuring that you activate the smart alarm feature. Set your desired wake-up time and select a time window for the Circular Ring to awaken you earlier.

Seamless Sleep Cycle Analysis

During your slumber, the Circular Ring performs real-time analysis of your sleep cycles. By monitoring your movement, heart rate variables, and temperature variation, the smart alarm identifies the perfect moment of your lightest sleep stage to wake you up. Rest assured, you won't be awakened after your alarm's set time.

Embrace Energized Mornings

Are you ready to transform groggy mornings into a burst of motivation and energy? Say goodbye to sleep inertia and welcome revitalized mornings with Circular's smart alarm. Harness the power of precise sleep cycle analysis and awaken feeling refreshed, prepared to conquer the day with renewed vigor.
