10 best alarm clocks
Take the pain out of an early morning wake-up call with one of these stylish time pieces
Tuesday 03 June 2014
Wakey, wakey rise and shine. If, in fact, the more likely scenario is waking up just in the nick of time for work, school, the school run or wherever else you have to be, then it could be time to invest in a decent alarm clock – unlike relying on your phone, it will add interest to your room, the battery won’t die in the night and you can choose to wake up to radio or music.
Whether you want something traditional or contemporary, digital or conventional, we’ve got it covered. What you won’t find in our list, however, are clocks that aren’t value for money, that don’t last, that have annoyingly loud ticks or ridiculously bright LCD displays.
So rest assured (sorry, couldn’t resist) you’ll find something here to suit your needs, even if you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder or need something to double up as a charger for your smart phone while you sleep.
