Connect Sleep Cycle to RISE
Each morning, RISE checks Apple Health for the previous night’s sleep. If Sleep Cycle has sent data to Apple Health, RISE will use it. When you don’t use Sleep Cycle you’re still covered with our automatic phone motion-based sleep detection.
How RISE uses sleep stage data from Sleep Cycle
RISE uses your awake stage to help determine your total sleep time and throws out the rest. REM, light sleep, deep sleep don't have an impact on how you're going to feel or perform the next day. Your brain naturally regulates and calibrates sleep stages each night. It is very good at knowing how much of each step your body needs. You can't optimize that process. What you can do is ensure you're getting enough sleep so that your brain has ample time to get its work done. You can also avoid substances that affect your sleep like alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine close to sleep.
Fix connection issues with Sleep Cycle
Ensure Sleep Cycle is set to connect to Apple Health. Sleep Cycle only asks you for permission to sync with the Health App after your 15th night (to connect in the Sleep Cycle app tap Settings > Advanced > Apple Health > Connect, more detailed instructions).
Open the Sleep Cycle app to force it to send the latest data to Apple Health.
Force close RISE and reopen.
Check the priority order of Sleep data sources in Apple Health. Drag Sleep Cycle to the top of the list.
Still having issues?
Use the in-app app chat in your profile or email us at email@example.com. Adding a screenshot of what you're seeing for sleep times in the Sleep Cycle app and in the Rise Progress tab will help us dig in faster.
We currently don't support this integration for Android, however, we're currently working on building this!
