• Icon Explanations

    Here you can find explanations of the icons that feature in your Sleep Diary. This will help you to analyse your sleep sessions in detail.

    1. The number of minutes next to the "Zzz icon" indicates how long it took for you to fall asleep
    2. The "Sunrise icon" shows you when the sun came up that day
    3. You can choose how you felt during/after your sleep with the "Smiling Face icon"
    4. If you dreamt during this sleep session, the "Ghost-Icon" allows you to indicate whether your dream was good, bad or somewhere in between!
    5. The "Alarm Clock Icon" indicates when you woke up that day


  • How does the app track my sleep?

    The app uses the sensors built into your phone. These sensors monitor how much you move during the night. The data collected is then used to determine your sleep cycles – light sleep, deep sleep or awake. You can also make notes, for instance, about your daytime activities, and then find out how coffee, sport and exercise influence your sleep.

  • What extra features does the Full Version offer?

    In the Full Version of the Sleep Better app, you receive the following features:

    • Advanced alarm settings
    • Additional alarm sounds
    • Dream Notes
    • Advances statistics
    • Moon phases analyses
    • No ads
  • How does the Sleep Better App handle time zone changes or daylight saving time?

    The Sleep Better app always stores the start and end time of your sleep in UTC. The duration will not be longer or shorter during a change in time or date.

  • Position of my phone for best tracking of sleep movements

    The best position is to the left or right, bottom edge, of your pillow. You should not place your phone at the edge of your mattress.

  • Does the Sleep Better App drain my battery?

    No, the battery shouldn't lose more than 20 to 30 percent. Tip: if you enable airplane mode overnight it is healthier for you and needs less battery power.

  • Is the Sleep Better App also available for Windows Phone?

    The Sleep Better app is only available for iOS and Android.

  • Why aren’t short sessions displayed in the sleep diary list?

    Sleep sessions under 5 minutes won't be stored in the database of the Sleep Better app.

  • What is sleep efficiency? How is it calculated?

    The sleep efficiency will be calculated as a percentage number with the following formula: (light sleep duration + deep sleep duration) / session duration * 100

  • Delete a tracked sleep session

    Open the Sleep Diary and then the sleep session details of your tracked session. Tap the menu button at the top right and select “Delete”.

  • Track a sleep session without an alarm

    You can track your sleep movements without setting an alarm sound.

  • Upgrade to Full Version

    It's the same way as in the Six Pack app, Leg Trainer app, etc, via in-app purchase. You can purchase the Full Version when trying to access locked features or by going into the app settings.

    If you are a Premium Member all the features are already available for you.

  • Supported display resolutions

    Only devices with a display resolution more than 420x800 px are supported. So if you have a device with smaller resolution (e.g. Samsung Galaxy Young with 240x320 px) you will not find the Runtastic Sleep Better app in the Google Play Store.
