Now you can wake up to the sun without even opening your curtains. This alarm clock uses a gentle glow that simulates a sunrise, waking you gently and naturally, so you definitely won’t want to murder it when it starts going off.
Choose from five different calming sounds to pair with the gradual light for an all-around sensory experience, or just select the FM radio option (that you’ll inevitably snooze once or twice).

Don’t worry, Zeus didn’t show up to your home, but you’ll certainly feel that way when waking up to this unit’s thunderous, 113-decibel buzzing. Fair warning: It’s definitely loud, so it’s a good pick only if you’re a heavy, heavy sleeper.
Just in case the noise somehow isn’t enough to pry you out of bed, this alarm clock flashes multiple bright red LEDs and comes with a bed shaker that’ll really get you going. Trust us, if that sensory overload doesn’t get the job done, nothing will.

Never squint to see what time it is again, especially when you’re waking up 20 times in the middle of the night to, you know, see exactly what time it is. We love the projection feature that displays the time on your wall or ceiling for easy viewing. Plus, it’ll even toss up the temperature — so you’ll already know what you should wear to work before you even get out of bed.
