If your iPhone or Android alarm clock with their very easy to use snooze function no longer cuts it for those early wake-up calls, we have some reinvented old-school alternative options that’ll help kick-start your day the right way.
Our smartphones have become a focal point of our lives, helping us to do a multitude of daily tasks, one of the most important being our alarm clocks. The ease of which it has become to set alarms on our devices led to the obsolescence of alarm clocks, but the old-school wake-up tools are rising again once again to reclaim their former glory with improved functions.
From cutting-edge smart clocks that help to impove sleep cycles to stylish options that’ll upgrade your bedside table, we bring a sample of some of the best alarm clocks to help get you and your family up in the mornings, which are also perfect gifts this festive season.
