These days, not many people have alarm clocks. Ever since our phones got more sophisticated and become our portable personal assistants, many of us have gotten rid of our alarm clocks and use only our phones instead.
If that’s you, you’ll be interested to hear that, in the last few years, alarm clocks have evolved. These days, they don’t just tell you the time and wake you up. No, most can do far more than that, including USB-charge your phone, telling you your room’s temperature, and, in the case of some, even double as a mirror. Many even add to your bedroom’s aesthetic, too.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of the best-looking among them. From a sleek alarm clock made from wood, to another shaped like a cloud, these are the five alarm clocks to choose from to buy if your iPhone’s wake-up alarm noise haunts you in your sleep.
Not only does this alarm clock double as a mirror (you can turn the clock display off), but it also has two USB ports that you can use for charging. Put it on your bedside table or hang it up on a wall in your home.
This bamboo and wood alarm clock is sleek, with no buttons on the front or side, only on the back. It has three sets of arms, works with voice activation, and displays the room’s temperature.
