No more groggy head swivelling with the Electrohome USB charging alarm clock radio. You just open your eyes to see the time projected in large numerals on the ceiling or wall. The USB charging is compatible with all smartphones and tablets and the digital radio has a 10-station memory. Dual alarms means you and your partner can set it for different times and it also has weekend cancellations.

Help for heavy sleepers

If you have hearing problems, or just need an audio shock to wake up, the Sonic Bomb alarm clock with Super Shaker will get certainly you out of the bed. The incredibly loud alarm goes up to 113 decibels (think power-saw levels) and it comes with a vibration pad which can be placed under pillows for an added incentive to rise.

Wake up the natural way

For a gentler, if pricier, start to the day, the Phillips Wake-Up Light slowly begins to simulate sunlight twenty to forty minutes before you get up, and then starts to play nature sounds, of which there are five to choose from. It also has a radio and can be used in reverse to help you sleep, and as a bedside reading lamp.Don’t snooze and lose

Rolling over for another five minutes is not an option with LC Prime's Mat alarm clock. To turn the alarm off you have to get out of the bed and stand on the mat for 3-5 seconds. Pressing the mat with your toes shoes up a bright LED time display and the alarm sound is customisable by connecting a USB cable to your computer and importing your favourite ringtone.
