If you often unknowingly switch off your alarm clock, fall asleep again and miss something important as a result, then Alarmy is just right for you. It makes the task of snoozing your alarm that much harder, so when you can finally snooze the alarm you’ll be fully awake and aware. For example, Math Mission forces you to solve a math problem right after waking up. There is also a photo mission that forces you to wake up and take a photo of the registered location to stop the alarm.

AlarmMon is a fun and unique take on alarm clocks. It gets you playing a game as soon as you open your eyes and gives you that early morning kick. When you first open it, it will ask you what type of sleeper you are – light, medium, or heavy – and suggest games accordingly. If you choose that you have a heavy sleep and want to do some physical activity after waking up, you will get a game called Zombie Lengtoo, where you have to tap to break a glass window and save a cute animal from a zombie attack. The alarm clock will ring until you finish the game. There are many more games like this to choose from.

Sleep as an android

Sleep as Android is one of the most popular sleep tracking apps on Android – and it doubles as an alarm clock app. The description for the app calls it “a Swiss Army knife for your sleep,” and looking at the feature list, it certainly seems that way. Aside from sophisticated sleep tracking features that don’t even require a smartwatch, the app uses AI-powered sound detection to try to fix your snoring and register sleep conversations. Unlike Alarmy, which forces you out of bed, Sleep as Android tries to do the same gently, which can be helpful for those with anxiety issues. The app also integrates with Google Fit, Samsung Health, Android Wear and Spotify.
