The Philips Somneo Sleep and Wake-Up Light (also known as SmartSleep) is the most stylish wake-up light we've tested, and looks great even when. The Philips SmartSleep Connected Sleep and Wake-Up Light (essentially the Bluetooth-connected version of the SmartSleep HF , previously called the Somneo. The Philips SmartSleep Sleep and Wake-Up Light allows you to personalize your sleep and wake-up experience through sunset and sunrise simulation. Unlike a.

Please note that willing to work each branch; in which PC s the definition of to be used connection to the. Now I only set up that is, made by.
Honestly, I was too sleepy to appreciate any of the extras above, but the so-called Power WakeUp alarm commands attention. For the mornings you absolutely must be up by a certain time like for a 4 a. After turning in at 2 a.
What can I say? It works. For three days, I programmed 10 minutes of ocean waves before bed—and I always fell asleep before it stopped. Of course, you might not be into this sort of thing, or you could simply pair the sunset feature on our main pick with white-noise machine, sleep-tracking app, or meditation app.
But we appreciate the virtue of a streamlined sleep tool. You can check the app to find out whether you need to make any changes appropriate for sleep. My room was too bright until I shut off the lights. It was also too dry, too noisy because of my noisy heating unit , and too warm. More helpful are the solutions the clock offers, like its calming wind-down sounds that mask the racket I endure from my heating unit. The HF also has a USB charging port, an on-demand nightlight, the ability to record your wake and sleep times in the app, an easier-to-maneuver donut shape, and an arguably more stylish look.
You also can record your bedtime and wake time by tapping a button in the app. The white light it uses for dawn and dusk feels less soothing than the red light of the Philips offerings. And its flyweight feel, plasticky appearance, and tinny sound make it seem cheap. But it comes with features you typically find in high-end clocks, and that makes this model the best budget choice.
Rather than simulating dawn or dusk, its white light simply grows from dim to bright within a minute window—no fancy color nuances, and with a less gradual change than on our other picks. You can also pair the light with one of its seven alarm tones almost as many as on the Somneo at a fraction of the cost , including the radio.
Unlike with the Philips clocks, both the light and the sound stop instead of just the sound when you hit snooze; at least one online reviewer disliked this, though my husband actually preferred it. I woke soon after the alarm, but presumably deeper sleepers have noted that the sound alarm shuts off too soon. On the plus side, you can use the clock as a reading light and program it to dim as you wind down and go to bed. Just for fun, you can also adjust it to glow in one of six different Gatorade-like colors in the dark—but only the white light works as an alarm light.
With the included battery, the hOmelabs alarm goes off even if the power conks out. A rubberized foundation keeps the hOmelabs clock from slipping off the nightstand despite its light weight, and it comes with a month warranty if you register the product—the coverage is six months longer than that of the other models we tried.
Compared with the many other low-priced sunrise alarms that look the same on Amazon, the hOmelabs Sunrise Alarm Clock—with more than 4, reviews at this writing—stood out. As with a sunrise alarm clock, you can program the Glow Light to brighten and dim gradually to ease you into waking up and going to bed, but unlike our existing picks it has no clock and no audio alarm.
Still, we love that the Glow Light is pleasingly intuitive—and it beats deciphering an instruction book and fumbling for buttons in the dark. Twist it to adjust its brightness. Flip it to turn it off or on again. Wiggle it to summon a night-light. Unlike the Philips Hue Go, which looks like a bowl and begs to be held with two hands, the Glow Light is shaped to grab and go, which made it so useful in my household.
Its lantern-like night-light came in handy the time my son yelled for me from his room at 4 a. Once you live with the Glow Light, you might discover other uses. Jeff Chapin, Casper founder and product designer, told me that new moms have used it for middle-of-the-night feedings.
I get up early and easily, so when the Glow Light brightened, I woke up and enjoyed the silence. But my husband, a heavy sleeper, consistently slept through it. If you can wake up with just a light, using a smart bulb see below or even the Philips Hue Go would be more cost effective.
You can find a few dawn-simulating apps on iTunes and Google Play, but they tend to garner mixed reviews and emit meager light compared with a clock or other dedicated device see below. You can use a smart bulb with a regular lamp and control it with an app or smart speaker such as an Amazon Echo or Google Nest. Like the Philips upgrade pick, the iHome offers an extensive wind-down program, yet costs about a quarter of the price.
The audio alarm—a choice of five not-always-calming nature options ocean waves but also a thunderstorm , plus a buzzer—grows quite loud, but the highest brightness level barely fills the corner of the room, let alone the whole space. There are seven color options to play with but the sunrise works only with white.
La Crosse Technology C Soluna Light Alarm Clock: This clock is a bit more expensive than our budget pick and the C Mood Light, but whether that extra money buys you an enhanced wake-up experience is debatable. Instead of soothing rain, ocean waves, or chirping birds, the Soluna offers only one alarm option: a tinny-sounding melody that evokes a wind-up music box.
It gets frighteningly louder for five long minutes following the designated wake-up time, unless you shut it off. Instead of a one-dimensional white, its sunrise emerges with a pale orange, though its hue is less saturated than that of the Philips. Six pleasant tones piano music, a babbling brook sound off when the light is at its brightest.
We like how seriously this company takes its science, and how it shares its findings in dawn-simulation research. Rather than using an LED, the Bodyclock Active employs a bulb included that at the designated time emits an estimated maximum lux at 12 inches away. On the plus side, this clock also has power backup, a simulated sunset with relaxing sounds, and five alarm tones, plus a radio. It has one less wake-up sound and relaxation sound than the HF and just one sunrise to choose from as opposed to four.
It also omits a second alarm, offers only three natural wake-up sounds piano music, chirping with cuckoo, and plain chirping , and lacks the soothing red in its simulated orange-dominant dawn. Its sunrise also starts off with more warmth and brightens gradually to lux 70 more than that of our budget pick, the hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock to more effectively fill a room.

Previously, she covered health and wellness as a magazine editor. The sun is rising, the birds are chirping, and I am well rested. This is the true story of my love affair with the Philips SmartSleep sunrise alarm clock. We found the best alarm clocks for all kinds of spaces, from analog and digital ones to smart alarms that gradually wake you up.
Here are tools to encourage good sleep hygiene, from keeping well hydrated to limiting Internet time in the evening. Our pick. Philips SmartSleep Wake-Up Light HF The best sunrise alarm clock This alarm has the most soothing simulated sunrise and sunset, which may help you feel less groggy.
Upgrade pick. SmartSleep Connected Sleep and Wake-Up Light HF A luxe wake-up light This Bluetooth-connected model has many of the same features as our main pick, but with some nice-to-have extras like a USB charging port, soothing sunrise lighting, and multiple alarms.
Budget pick. Everything we recommend. What's great about the Hatch is that users can fully personalize every part of their sleep schedule according to their preferences; you can add up to 10 steps to your wind-down routine. My routine consisted of three simple steps. First, I got into bed and read my book using the coral nighttime light for 30 minutes while listening to the "sea wind" sound. Then I wound down with a soft pink light and the "meeting sleep with ease" meditation.
Finally, I fell asleep to an orange light and the sound of rain. You can also set how long each step is. The Hatch is well-designed with a nice half-moon shape that simulates a natural sunrise, and, at 7. The Hatch Sleep app controls all of the features, but the device includes a few soft-touch buttons for volume and brightness so you don't have to reach for your phone, as well as a digital clock. Two other negatives are the device usually takes a few seconds to connect when you open the app, and it doesn't play music or radio.
The iHome Zenergy Dream Mini produces a soft sunrise and will gradually wake you up with your favorite song. Pros: Lots of customizable options, pairs with Bluetooth to play music from your phone, won't take up too much space on your nightstand.
Cons: The light intensity might be too low for some, most functions cannot be controlled through a smartphone, only two alarms. The iHome Zenergy Dream Mini is a tiny sleep therapy machine packed with features and customizable options. A unique feature of the Zenergy Dream Mini is you can wake up to a Spotify playlist. It paired quickly and smoothly with my iPhone, and I woke up to a gentle simulated sunrise and my favorite song.
The sound quality is good for such a small device. However, even though you can play your music through Bluetooth, this alarm clock does not have an accompanying app, so you can't control other features with your phone. Instead, you control most of its functionality through 15 buttons on the top of the device. It has several options that you have to set manually, but the instructions make this effortless. One of the key features is the "Zenergy" button, which activates calming sounds accompanied by gentle, colorful lights.
It is customizable with the "fall asleep" and "stay asleep" buttons, which let you choose from sound and light options, including a guided breathing meditation, 13 relaxing sounds, and nine calming light therapy cycles. My favorite is the "heart" sound because it promotes steady breathing patterns and pairs well with the "breath" light color therapy.
The large snooze button is strategically placed in front so I didn't have to struggle to find it each morning. However, you can only set two alarms, and the snooze only lasts up to nine minutes. The light from the Zenergy Dream Mini may be too soft for individuals who need brighter hues to wake up. Read our full iHome Zenergy Dream Mini review. The Casper Glow Light is uniquely designed as a wireless, portable night light and uses intuitive gestures and a streamlined design to create a beautiful and simple experience.
Pros: Beautiful warm lights, portable, pairs with multiple Glow Lights for a bedroom light show, intuitive and easy to operate with simple gestures. Cons: Lacks sound, requires smartphone app for expanded features like setting sleep and wake times. Casper Glow Light is a small, portable cylinder that you control with just a few gestures: flip to turn on, rotate to adjust the light intensity, and wiggle to turn on the night light.
The device is softly lit and smartly designed with gentle, warm hues for a better sleep experience. The light charges wirelessly and pairs with an intuitive app available for iOS and Android. While you can operate the light without it, the app is a must if you want to set wake-up and wind-down times, which cue a sunset or sunrise that can last from 15 to 90 minutes. One of the unique features of the Glow Light is that it synchronizes with other Glow Lights to make pretty light shows.
Once you have more than one, you can name each and group or ungroup them through the app. I used two lights together and found they set a tranquil ambiance. This alarm clock can also be used as a portable night-light. This feature is useful when you want to find your way in the night without bright lights. It was fun to carry around when I needed a glass of water in the dark. It's made with polycarbonate to resist bumps and endure falls, so it's great for kids to use as well.
Falling asleep with the Glow Lights was a treat. The soft, warm lights create a peaceful sleep environment, gradually dim to slowly relax you, and then turn completely off for total darkness. However, the device focuses solely on effective light therapy, and, unlike other models we tested, there are no sound options. It might not be ideal for heavy sleepers who need noise to wake up; you'll still need to set a separate, audible alarm. Read our full review of the Casper Glow Light.
The Philips SmartSleep Wake-Up Light has a unique spherical design that creates a beautiful sunrise simulation and features many of the same premium settings as the more expensive Philips SmartSleep Connected. Pros: Creates the best sunrise simulation, very user-friendly and simple, fully manual. Cons: Very limited sound options, doesn't have an app if you're someone who prefers a connected device.
A less expensive option from Philips, the SmartSleep Wake-Up Light has fewer customizable options and features than the Philips SmartSleep Connected and is completely manual; no app needed. I recommend this one if you're looking for something simple but still high-quality and efficient. It's one of Philips' best-selling sunrise alarm clocks because of its impressive colored sunrise simulations and relaxing sunsets.
I had no problem setting the time and alarms with the easy-to-follow instructions. Falling asleep to this lamp was very relaxing; the sunset simulation therapy works just as well as the Philips SmartSleep Connected. The display automatically dims as the room gets darker, great for cocooning yourself in total darkness. Waking up with this lamp was such a pleasant experience; the gradual and natural sunrise simulation increased over the span of 30 minutes until it completely flooded my bedroom with beautiful, rich, orange-and-yellow lights and the gentle sounds of "Nepal bowls.
You can choose from five different natural wake-up sounds, including beautiful "birds" and "ocean waves," or your preferred FM radio station. The snooze feature is unique: A single slight tap anywhere on the device snoozes the lamp for nine minutes. It's also one of Philips' sunrise alarm clocks clinically proven to help you feel more ready for the day, and I have to admit that it did a great job at waking me up and feeling refreshed in the morning.
I prefer this Philips model's smooth, spherical shape and smaller size over the Philips SmartSleep Connected , although I wish it connected to the app for more customization. I missed the extra features in the Philips SleepMapper app when I used this model, like the sleep-environment monitoring and extended customization. I hope Philips comes out with a new sunrise alarm clock that features all of the Philips SmartSleep Connected options but is shaped like this model to simulate that beautiful, natural sunrise.
It resembles a glowing donut and is controlled almost entirely from an app available for iOS or Android. You can customize "wind-down" and "wake-up" profiles with your preferred sound, light intensity, and duration. The daily alarm has to be turned on manually every single night before going to bed; if you fall asleep before you do, you're out of luck for your morning alarm. The sound options are interesting. Made by a British company, the device only provides a hour clock, which is somewhat inconvenient if you're used to a hour clock.
The device and its lights do simulate a nice sunset and sunrise. The light progression is smooth, and it has gentle levels of brightness. In addition to interviewing sleep experts Dr. William Winter of Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine, I did hands-on testing with seven different sunrise alarm clocks. I previously managed a sleep laboratory for two years and continue to contribute to sleep research.
Part of my research involved investigating strategies to reduce sleep inertia like using sunrise alarm clocks , so I also relied on my background in sleep research and product testing to evaluate each product over several nights. I tested each sunrise alarm clock according to the following criteria:.
Setup: For each lamp, I paid close attention to how difficult or easy it was to set up on my nightstand. I noted how accurate and helpful their instructions were and what it was like to set the time and alarms. I also evaluated how heavy they were and how much space they occupied on my bedside table. Performance : I used each wake-up lamp for a minimum of three consecutive days and nights to get used to the routine and noted whether or not they woke me up on time and with the features sound and light color I chose.
I took notes on what it was like to fall asleep with their wind-down features and paid particular attention to the wake-up experience. I woke up at the same time every morning with each alarm clock to keep my experiences consistent and noted how I felt and how much sleep inertia I experienced. I also evaluated the sound and light quality of each and how easy or difficult it was to snooze the backup alarm if it had one. Special features : I tested any additional and unique features of each sunrise alarm clock, such as speakers, Bluetooth integration, guided meditations, and accompanying mobile apps.
I noted whether or not these extra features were actually helpful and easy to use. Durability: In order to test how durable and resistant each alarm clock was, I knocked every one off my nightstand and checked to see if any parts came loose or broke.
Fortunately, all of them passed this test. I also took note of each product's materials and warranty. Long-term use: Since my original testing, I've continued to regularly use our top picks and will report back about their durability over time. It can be difficult for some of us to adapt to season changes, especially in the winter when days get shorter and nights get longer. The shift from bright summer days to long, dark winter months can impact circadian rhythms, sometimes resulting in seasonal affective disorder SAD.
New technology also affects our circadian rhythms by restraining the natural production of the sleep hormone melatonin as a result of constant exposure to artificial blue lights from our phones, TVs, and computers. Regular daily alternation of light and darkness is essential in order to maintain good quality sleep.
Sunrise alarm clocks have "wind-down" features that encourage a healthy production of melatonin at night by mimicking a gradual sunset, while the "wake-up" cycles encourage the production of cortisol in the morning by simulating a natural and gradual sunrise that prepares you for wakefulness. The wake-up and wind-down features can be equally important in helping maintain a healthy sleep cycle.
Many sunrise alarm clocks are equipped with all the features we all like in traditional alarm clocks — a radio or music player, custom or multiple alarms, and yes, even a sound alarm if you need it. The key difference is that sunrise alarm clocks use gentle light and sound to help you wake up before resorting to the louder noises that are typical of a standard alarm clock. Waking up to the loud, obnoxious sound of a traditional alarm clock is not only unpleasant and irritating, but it's also quite unhealthy.
That abrupt wake-up experience can also cause stress levels to suddenly increase, often aggravating long-term issues like chronic anxiety. Winter also advises waking up gently because sudden awakenings can cause sudden blood pressure surges, possibly leading to heart issues.
Your chances of waking up with sleep inertia — that debilitating groggy, drowsy feeling that occurs as a result of a sudden, often startling transition between sleep and wakefulness — also increase if you wake up to a traditional alarm clock. Sleep inertia makes it very difficult for some people to get out of bed and often puts people in a bad mood for the rest of their day. There are a lot of options when it comes to choosing a sunrise alarm clock. One very important aspect to consider is the brightness level of the lamp.
If you're a heavy sleeper, you might need a sunrise alarm clock that has bright lights to effectively wake you up in the morning.
