Why You Need a Smart Alarm Clock
Waking up every day is a challenge for many. But using a smart alarm clock can help us rise and shine a little easier. “Smart alarm clocks can be the backbone of a good morning routine,” says Jennifer Cohen, a high-performance coach and author of Strong Is the New Skinny: How to Eat, Live, and Move to Maximize Your Power.
Cohen doesn’t believe in lingering in bed, so she suggests choosing an alarm clock that will wake you up the fastest. That’s especially important if you’re a heavy sleeper. “While bells and whistles like telling you the weather or smart home compatibility are nice, if a smart alarm clock isn’t getting you out of bed quickly, you might as well be using an old-fashioned analog one,” she says. “Think about what you need, whether it’s a loud sound or a light that’s similar to sunrise and choose the right device based on features.”
The best smart alarm clock for you depends on your lifestyle and budget. Here are 12 to consider. Smart alarm clocks are only one of the coolest tech products on the market.
