If you’re still jolting yourself awake with the harsh tones of an alarm clock, it’s time to give a Philips Wake-Up Light a try. It sounds hyperbolic, but these things really can improve your life immeasurably, and a pair of models are on sale for Black Friday.
Unlike unsympathetic traditional alarm clocks, Philips Wake-Up Lights ease you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. And of course, they’ll still nudge you awake with an audible alert when it’s really time to get out of bed. They also double as very warm and pleasant reading lights as you’re getting ready to go to sleep. I’ve owned the entry level HF3500 model for nearly a year (along with nearly 12,000 of you!), and I can definitely tell the difference when I sleep away from home and have to rely on my iPhone alarm.
If you need help deciding which to buy, the product pages have comparison charts to compare features. Basically, the high-end HF3520 bests the $72 HF3505 with more wake-up sounds, adjustable light temperature, and sunset simulation, but you can’t go wrong either way.
