In our increasingly digital world, many people are now using smart phones to perform many functions that multiple items once were used for, including alarm clocks. With alarms clocks now installed on almost every mobile phone, we are now using our phones to be woken up in the mornings.
The problem with using our phones as alarms is how we now leave our phones resting next to us on our bedside tables while we sleep – or while we try to sleep.
Having our phones so close to us always leads to late night browsing on our phones, which means less sleep and more stress. Essentially, using smart phones as alarms prevents us from being able to switch off at night, and exposes us to harmful rays.
That’s where clock radios come in, eliminating the need to have our phones right next to us in bed, and can instead be left somewhere to leave us sleep in peace.
Clock radios are the perfect tool for waking up in the morning: you can choose to wake up to the sound of the radio, and catch up on the morning news or listen to music while you’re getting ready to start your day. A cool clock radio can also be a great modernist addition to your bedroom, whether that's a designer clock radio or a simple clock radio with an iPhone dock.
