5 Of The Highest-Rated Sunrise Clocks On Amazon

This might be the answer to your dark circle prayers

If your typical morning routine involves being violently awoken by your blaring alarm clock, you might be in need of a better waking routine. That’s where the recent trend of sunrise clocks come into play.

Instead of fumbling in complete darkness to turn off your alarm, sunrise clocks allow you the opportunity to naturally wake up to the rising sun. It’s a gentler way of rising as the artificial light gradually increases almost an hour prior to your alarm time.

This process of increasing light intensity stimulates your body to wake up naturally, rather than forcefully. So if you’re in search of a better morning routine that leaves you ready for the day ahead, a sunrise alarm clock may be the answer to beating your dark circles once and for all. 

See below for the highest-rated sunrise alarm clocks on Amazon:

    "Makes waking up so much more pleasant, start out feeling peaceful instead of jarred awake by my alarm clock. And I don't feel all groggy and sleepy. I haven't actually bothered with coffee in over a week, because I don't feel sluggish when I wake up. I wish it had some better alarm functions (like the kind of features you'd see on a $15 clock, basic stuff), a battery backup, and was a bit easier to program. But overall I'm happy with my purchase and love waking up a bit gentler. - Amazon Reviewer

    "I usually use my cell phone as my alarm. Since I have this I have stopped. I wake up easier and without the stressed feeling. I do not like all of the programmed sounds for the alarm. I do enjoy the colored lights I can use when I'm winding down at night. The ability to turn off the whole display at night is also a big plus for me since I do not like any light at all once I fall asleep. This is a pretty good little alarm clock..." - Amazon Reviewer

    "I purchased this alarm clock for my 9-year-old daughter who has a very difficult time waking up in the morning, often turning her alarm clock off and just falling back to sleep. The combination of the bright sunrise light and the sounds seem to do a much better job than standard alarm clocks at waking her up thoroughly. There was basically no setup, and I could program the alarm intuitively without even reading the instruction manual." - Amazon Reviewer
