Features: Light-guided breathing | Sunset simulation | Smart touch display
The Philips SmartSleep Sleep and Wake Up sunrise lamp ticks all our boxes for a great sunrise alarm. It can simulate both a sunrise for the morning wakeup and a sunset to help get you to sleep at night. You'll be able to choose from nature sounds to ambient gongs to even your favorite radio station when the alarm gently rings, and you can customize the brightness and noise level of the alarm up to 20 different levels each.
Aside from a nice, modern design, the lamp comes with a handy soft, adjustable, one-touch adjustable light for getting up to go to the bathroom or check on kids. The touch screen display also uses easy-to-navigate buttons to quickly set an alarm before bed or start that breathing cycle just before bedtime.
On a personal note, I've used this sunrise wake-up lamp for a few years now and feel it helps me rise out of bed much faster. It's a much more relaxed way to wake up, and I really enjoy how the alarm is a gentle bell gong when the light doesn't wake me up or how it can handle two alarms when my partner needs to wake up at a different time in the morning.
