If you live with someone who snores, you have probably been told that you’re making it up when you confront them with the snoring issue. Many people who snore are either blissfully ignorant of the fact that they can rattle windows in their sleep or truly believe they don’t snore. As someone who is sharing a bed with a snorer in denial you might find yourself fighting a losing battle every time you try to bring it up. Your option might be to stay up all night to try to record them snoring, but that won’t be doing you any favors. So what’s a person to do? That’s where this handy app comes into play:
Snore Metrics has launched Snore Report – an iPhone app aimed at monitoring sleep and snoring. Snore Report will allow FitBit integration, and is available for download in the Apple App Store for free right now, with Android launching in the spring of 2017.
The app works by recording your sleep overnight. In the morning, the app provides a “Snore Score” assessment with the option to listen to the recording in its entirety, along with computed analysis and analytics.
Developed by world class engineers from the United States, China and Ukraine, SnoreReport features sophisticated algorithms to factor out the megahertz of the television sound, ensuring that it does not compromise, or interfere with the Snore Score. The app integrates the sleep tracking data with FitBit, to incorporate the heartbeat and provide a more comprehensive assessment of sleep quality.
“The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that drowsy driving was responsible for 72,000 crashes, 44,000 injuries and 800 deaths in 2014,” continued Fallon. “Snore Report allows you to monitor your sleep in the comfort of your own home. Sleep disorders are a silent killer, and we are working with Dr. Robert Lebby, a Board Certified Sleep M.D., to consult on further advancing the accuracy and analytics of the app.”
BAM! All you have to do is install this app on your phone and leave it running one night to pick up your partner’s snoring. The catch here is if you also snore, you won’t know who the app is tracking. You might be better off sneaking to another room for the night to ensure that the app captures the right culprit (or, why not wear a mouthpiece like the Good Morning Snore Solution to practically guarantee that it isn’t you that is snoring). Not only will this app provide a written report it will also allow a recording to be played. There’s no denying the fact that someone snores when you’ve got this much proof. This app is more productive than Johnson in accounting!
If your blissfully unaware snorer still denies they have an issue even after all of this, you might need to rethink everything. Chances are, one confronted with this proof they may be willing to at least have a conversation about it and you can work together. Dispelling some sleep myths right off the top is a good idea. Teamwork is what makes a relationship thrive so don’t just try to blame them for this issue they really can’t control when they’re unconscious. Maybe you need to review your habits and activities to ensure that you both can have a happy, healthy, quiet sleep.
