While it may seem like a foreign concept, cell phones did not always exist and in order to wake up in the morning, a digital alarm clock was used. Alarm clocks give you the ease of large, clear displays so you always know the time, the option to wake up to music or sounds and we can’t forget the beloved snooze button that we might press over and over (and over).
Below we are featuring three alarm clocks that may not have all the bells and whistles of a cell phone, but are still top performers in their class. Wake up slowly and the way nature intended with the sun with the Phillips alarm clock or if waking up is not your forte, you may choose the Sonic Bomb alarm which gives you the option of literally shaking your whole bed ensuring you wake up (without disturbing any roommates).
1. Sonic Alert Sonic Bomb Turbo Charged Alarm Clock
The Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock by Sonic Alert is a dual alarm clock that has been proven to wake up even the heaviest sleepers for years. This alarm clock has a powerful extra, extra-loud dual alarm with an adjustable volume and tone, built-in, pulsating alert lights and a powerful 12-volt bed shaker that you can put underneath your mattress or pillow to be shaken awake.
2. Philips Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock with Colored Sunrise Simulation and Sunset Fading Night Light
Inspired by nature’s sunrise, the Philips Wake-Up Light Alarm clock uses a unique combination of light therapy and sound to wake you in a more natural way.
