BioBrite Sunrise Clock wakes you up with the (fake) sun

For those of us out there that wake up with the sunrise, we are a little dependent on the sun coming up as our alarm clock. In the middle of winter, we have no choice but to use something with a loud buzzer, as it stays dark in the mornings. This is the worst possible way to get up as it jolts you awake, leaving you in that sort of “just woke up” haze. If there were a way to do things naturally like you do in the spring and summer, wouldn’t you jump at the chance?

The BioBrite Sunrise Clock is the best way to tackle winter wake up calls without a horrid sound startling you in the early morning. You can adjust it so that it will increase its brightness over different periods of time, ranging from 15-90 minutes. This can be one of the best and most natural ways to make it out of sleep state, and can also be used in reverse to simulate dusk. It is a bit expensive, running you around $120 for that simulated sunrise.

  • This product/item is by no means "new". I bought one at least 5 years ago.
    This alarm clock is horrible. The light gets very hot and the overall unit is fairly big.

  • Ichy Ferret – I bought one of these clocks a few years ago, too. I wish the thing were smaller, but this was the smallest sunrise clock I could find. The heat of the lamp hasn’t been a problem.

    I like to sleep in absolute darkness, so I wish this clock had an easy way to keep the entire LED display turned off during the night. Instead I cover it up, which is a bit of a pain.

    I wouldn’t say the clock is horrible, though. In spite of the size and LED display, I love this clock. It makes a huge difference to my mornings because it wakes me *gently* instead of startling me awake, which is what sound-based alarm clocks do.

    Now if only somebody would make a much smaller version!
