This application has an entire US patent for its wake technology. It tracks the phases of your sleep while the phone is just lying next to the bed: it analyzes the sounds and vibrations that you make in different biological periods of sleep. Science says that when you wake up in REM sleep, you get better sleep. Therefore, the alarm clock sets itself at the most optimal time in order to wake you up in this particular phase. By the way, you can also monitor sleep phases through a fitness tracker or smart watch, for example, through the Apple Health app.
