Well, let me tell you what this is one very, VERY cool way to wake up! This Sunrise Alarm clock simulates a sunrise starting off with a little light then a bright sunny day! The light gradually goes from 10% to 100% brightness in 30 minutes before the alarm goes off; which means it gently wakes you up from a deep sleep to wide awake.
When the thirty minute sunrise an alarm sounds. You can choose to wake up to FM radio, birds, waves, violin, bagpipes or a very nice DiDi noise. There is a snooze function will give you 5 more minutes’ sleep, and play again after 5 minutes and last for 2 minutes. However, I found that the bright light makes me want to get up. I haven’t touched the snooze button since this alarm clock arrived. I am so impressed.
So the sunrise truly looks like someone opened my shutters and let the noon day sunshine in. So much so that the first morning I used the alarm I got out of bed, made my bed and then turned off the light and the room was pitch-black. I mean DARK like it was the middle of the night (Stupid time change! I hate getting up in the dark!!) No this isn’t a bad photo, this is the dark room after I thought it was noon!
I couldn’t believe that this little light could make my room so bright and so SUNNY!!!
More that I absolutely love about this Sunrise Alarm Clock is the fact that I can turn everything that lights up totally off. From the clock to the light. If you wanted to you can turn the light feature on low for a bedside light or even a night light. With 7 colors to choose from!! There are settings for brightness up to level 10′ which is really nice and bright! The 7 colors available are warm white, green, red, blue, purple, orange, indigo.
The alarm clock has a battery back up of 2 AAA batteries that are not included. There is a USB cable and adapter included.
Setting up the clock is easy when you follow the enclosed instructions. They are step by step and easy to follow with photos and written instructions.
You can set the clock to read in 12 or 24 hour formats.
I am very impressed with this alarm clock. It really truly does make me wake up happier and more AWAKE because of the sunshine. The gradual sunshine. It is truly amazing!! Who would have thought that a sunshine alarm clock would make me so happy!??!
An alarm clock that puts me in a good mood? How can I whine about that?! The light is gradual so you wake up slowly but at the end of the 30 minutes you’ll be WIDE awake and HAPPY!!!
I love this alarm clock! If you have to use an alarm clock this is the one to pick!
