Our sunrise clock works with your body's natural circadian rhythm. The gradual increase in light stimulates your body's wake-up process, so by the time you open your eyes, you're fully awake and your energy levels are already up to full alertness. It's so much nicer than all those nasty loud electronic beeps.
No More Growly Bear
Our Dawn Simulator Alarm Clock with Radio is perfect for anyone with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or just that lethargic morning feeling. Ordinary alarm clocks wake you up suddenly, so you jump from deep sleep to consciousness in seconds. That leaves you needing time to "wake up" properly - and you may even start the day as a growly bear: feeling irritable, tired and needing coffee to get going.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
In as little as a few days, your body readjusts itself to nature's way, preparing for sleep at night and waking up gently in the morning. Particularly useful for anyone suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), shift workers and stay-abed teenagers, our Dawn Simulator Alarm Clock with Radio is simply the best way for everyone to rise and shine. It's great for resetting your jetlagged body too!
The scientifically calculated sunrise/sunset lasts 30 minutes, and there's a backup beeper for the over anxious - though in practice most people find they wake up a few seconds before it goes off. Our Dawn Simulator Alarm Clock with Radio also has a dimmer feature and pretty sunray light effect, and uses a 60w sunshine neodymium bulb.

Did You Know?
Dawn simulation clocks help increase your serotonin production. Serotonin is a hormone that is lower in people suffering from depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and is a precursor for melatonin: the "sleep hormone". Scientific studies have shown that the use of dawn simulation and lightboxes can significantly improve symptoms of these health problems.
People with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia often suffer from "sundowning" - recurring confusion and increased agitation that manifests in the late afternoon and/or early evening. Dawn simulation clocks and lightboxes have been shown to reduce sundowning, and improve sleep and behaviour patterns.
