This device’s gradual sunlight display combined with the brand’s Sleep membership works on a complete sleep regimen. Perfect for people looking to invest in their overall sleep hygiene, the app comes with all the content you could want. Imagine if it was your favourite meditation app And the alarm clock had a baby – that’s what you get from the library of sounds in this app. At bedtime, bedtime stories, guided rest exercises, and the sounds of light rain block city sirens and other nocturnal distractions.
You’ll get a one-month free trial membership with your purchase, but you’ll need to pay $10 per month once the trial is over if you want access to exclusive sounds (music, dream scenes, rest exercises, sleep stories).
However, this alarm clock is a great device even without including these sounds. It uses the progression of natural light from red to orange to white, before playing your chosen sound (optional). You can also use it at night as a reading light, and (even without the paid membership) you’ll have access to tons of features to help create a quieter bedtime and wake-up routine. Just note that you’ll need to use your phone to control this device, whether or not you’re paying for membership.
What customers say:
Not only have over 4,000 Amazon shoppers given this alarm clock a perfect rating, it’s also a favorite of mindbodygreen editor like Jamie Schneider. “I can’t say enough good things about Hatch,” she says. “Sunrise alarm clock for gentle wake-up, soft reading light, library of soothing sounds to cut out the noise of NYC… It’s a heavenly blessing for city life. I love it so much that I convinced my partner to have one at every table—when the bells go out to get up at six in the morning, I can not hear anything “.
