There are two types of people in this world: Those who spring out of the bed, fit a workout in at the crack of dawn and still seem chipper by the time they’re at the office — and those who hit snooze as many times as they can before rolling out of bed at the lastest minute possible.
Either way, it all boils down to habit and routine. If you’re in the latter category, why not ease yourself into a regime and make getting out of bed less of a chore? Ever since the concept light-based alarms — digital clocks that wake you up like the sun’s circadian rhythm — came to the fore, people have praised the devices for turning them into enthusiastic early risers.
While the leading light-based alarm clock on the market is undoubtedly the pioneering Philips Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock with Sunrise Simulation, there are now several other options at various price points.
This model by FitFort is on sale today (Jan. 24) for just $32.39 (a saving of 35 percent). The Wake Up Light Alarm Clock allows you to set your alarm time and the wake-up light will gradually increase from 10 percent (a gentle red) to 100 percent (bright sunlight) as the clock ticks towards that minute.
At nighttime, you can also use the intelligent clock as a reading light and set it to dim from 100 percent to 0 percent with or without relaxing music, helping you to get a better night’s shuteye.
According to the brand, a staggering 97 percent of people found it easier to wake up with this light alarm clock!

For those who are a slave to the snooze, you still can hit that tempting button with this alarm clock too. If you share a bed with your partner, you can even set two alarms to wake each of you up without affecting one another.
If you love to hear some tunes or the radio while you start your day, this clock will also allow you to have automatic music or stations play as you rise.
Unlike the traumatizing sounds of the iPhone’s Radar tone — the default alarm sound we all know and hate — you can select from seven natural sounds with 16 different levels of volume to find your perfect gentle wake up call.
One reviewer said, “I’ve never been a ‘morning person’ and alarm clocks have historically been loud and obnoxious options to waking up, so I decided to try this. Now it’s not magic, it hasn’t made me all of a sudden cheerful in the morning but it’s a much more calming alternative. Other than the obvious reasons for trying this kind of clock, this particular one has many awesome settings! It has multiple different levels of lights, along with different colors of lights. It had an alarm function, a clock function. It can also double as a sound machine that you can play soothing sounds at night. When using the alarm function the sunrise comes on 10 minutes before the alarm goes off. You can also plug your phone into it for charging. I love the versatility of this alarm clock and the instructions are. Very easy to follow. You should get it.”
Order yours and become that chirpy morning person you always dreamed of being.
