Best Wake Up Light Alarm Clock

Have you ever had someone talk to you about the Philips HF3520/60 Wake-Up Light Therapy Alarm Clock with Colored Sunrise Simulation and Sunset Fading Night Light? It's practically like having a conversation about religion. There are so many people out there who swear by it and they can't imagine life without it. On top of that, it has had such a profound effect on them that they want you to get one too, so you can experience it for yourself. Well, if you want one, you can save $10 off the $105 retail price if you snag one today on Amazon. That's still pretty pricey though, so let's talk about what this gadget does and why you should check out a much less expensive alternative.

Philips HF3520/60 Wake-Up Light Therapy Alarm Clock with Colored Sunrise Simulation and Sunset: $93.98

In a nutshell, the idea with wake up light alarm clocks is to wake you up slowly and gently instead of shocking you awake with a blaring buzzer or some other grating sound. The built-in light simulates a natural sunrise, starting with a red hue at 10% brightness and increasing to 100% with a yellow hue just like real sunlight. If that's not enough, there are also a bunch of built-in natural alarm sounds to help give you an extra nudge and wake you up.

Believe it or not, using a device like this instead of a traditional alarm clock or your smartphone isn't just about having a cool gizmo to play with. You really do wake up feeling better rested and you have more energy during the day. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't get one and experience it for myself. But I didn't cough up $100 for the Philips model, I picked up the Fitfort Wake Up Light Alarm Clock, a best-selling model on Amazon with a 4.6-star rating and more than 1,100 reviews. It's fantastic, and it's on sale right now for just $36.
