If you’re still jolting yourself awake with the harsh tones of an alarm clock, it’s time to give a Philips Wake-Up Light a try. It sounds hyperbolic, but these things really can improve your life immeasurably, and you can get your own for $55 today, the lowest price listed since October of last year.

Update: The $55 model is sold out, but the high-end Philips HF3520 Wake-Up Light is down to $115, within $5 of its all-time low. The HF3520 adds a sunset simulator to help you get to sleep, natural wake-up sounds, customizable light colors, and even an FM radio.

Unlike an unsympathetic traditional alarm clock, the Philips Wake-Up Light eases you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. And of course, it will still nudge you awake with a gentle beep when it’s really time to get out of bed. It also doubles as a very warm and pleasant reading light as you’re getting ready to go to sleep. I’ve owned this thing for nearly a year, and I can definitely tell the difference when I sleep away from home and have to rely on my iPhone alarm.


Again, this is the best deal we’ve seen on this thing in over a year, but we aren’t sure how long it will last, so shake yourself awake and place an order quickly. [Philips Wake-Up Light, $55]
