  1. That article mentions using an app or a device to wake you up during optimal sleep cycles – the only way to really tell what type of sleep you are in is by brainwaves. No app or wearable will do this. Its mostly just marketing bunk.

I believe waking up once in the middle of the night is a managable price to pay if you’re staying hydrated.
