If your iPhone alarm jolts you awake every morning, it might be time to start your day a little more gently.
Ditch the daily jump scare and opt for a Philips wake-up light, which uses calming sounds and light that simulates a sunrise to lift you out of sleep. As of July 29, the SmartSleep sunrise alarm is 20% off, which is within $3 of the lowest price we’ve seen on this model.
This wake-up light features five natural sounds, a dimmable display, FM radio, and a tap-to-snooze function. You can choose from 10 brightness settings, too — so you can decide if you want to wake up to light that resembles hot desert sun or light that’s closer to a real sunrise.
Because the light settings are so customizable, you can also use the SmartSleep as a bedside reading lamp. There’s even a sunset simulation setting, in case you want to go to sleep and wake up with the “sun” without working around the actual sun.
