I think it would be really useful if you added a polyphasic sleep addon/ app.
That addon should be able to support:
A plan which helps you to get in stage of acclimatization from a traditional monophasic sleep cyle into an polyphasic sleep by showing you when to sleep to have as little problems with the acclimatization.
A tool that analyzes your calendar and integrating the sleeping times which are necessary by the polyphasic sleep plan of the user and adds sleeping as calendar events.
This function should contain:
- A program which makes suggestions how to set calendar events and not to interfere the sleep plan. A possibility to differ in postponeable and not postponeable events might be useful in that.
- In polyphasic sleeping there is a lot about getting a sufficent number of REM-phases. The program should watch that there are enough of them. It should be able to interfere in the plan if necessary by adding or extending a nap. (I think because of the difference of napping it would be more useful to make that an wearables-only-feature or to improve the REM-detection.)
- You should be able to enumerate the places where it is possible to take a nap (like home/ work/ library/ etc.). So it can calculate wheater you can realize going to sleep by GPS-tracking and location taggs on the calendar.
You should be able to plan moving a 'backwards' or 'forwards' to a different plan plan (p.e. 'forwards' from a three-times-sleeping-Everyman-sleep to a four-times-sleeping-Everyman sleep or from Uberman back to Everyman); especially useful to plan if certain issues force you to change your sleep cycle.
I think that would be best in an app seperated but co-working App. I think in today's meritocracy there could presumably be a market for that.
I really appreciate your app for being a reliable partner in waking and sleep tracking and your steady effort to improve it. Thank you!
