In a world where you can get instant feedback about how much energy your house is using, how many steps you’ve taken today and how much REM sleep you got last night, it should come as little surprise that there’s now an app to track how good you are at waking up.

Red Bull Alert, available from today for Android devices, not only tracks how quickly you respond to your alarm, but does it all with photos from one of nine different sport categories. There are different sounds to rouse you from your slumber too.


If you’re the competitive sort, you can also see how you stack up against your friends at, err, waking up.

I’m not sure I need another reason to feel guilty for hitting snooze in the morning, but perhaps you do.
