This device’s gradual sunlight display coupled with the brand’s Sleep Membership makes a full sleep system. Perfect for people who are looking to invest in their overall sleep hygiene, the app comes equipped with all the dreamy content you could want. Imagine if your favorite meditation app and alarm clock had a baby–that’s what you get with this app’s sound library. At bedtime, sleep stories, guided rest exercises, and light rain sounds block out city sirens and other nightly distractions.
You’ll receive a free one-month membership trial with your purchase, but you will need to pay $10 per month once the trial ends if you want to have access to the exclusive sounds (music, dreamscapes, rest exercises, and sleep stories).
That said, this alarm clock is a great device even without those sounds included. It uses the natural light progression from red to orange to white, before playing your (optional) chosen sound. You can also use it at night as a reading light, and (even without the paid membership) you’ll have access to a ton of features to help create a more calming bedtime and wake up routine. Just note, you will need to use your phone to control this device, whether you pay for the membership or not.
What Customers Say:
Not only have more than 4,000 Amazon shoppers given this alarm clock a perfect rating, it’s also a favorite of mindbodygreen editor’s like Jamie Schneider. “I cannot say enough good things about the Hatch,” she says. “The sunrise alarm for gentle wake-ups, the soft reading light, the library of soothing sounds to eliminate NYC noise…It’s a godsend for city living. I love it so much that I even convinced my partner to have one on each nightstand–when the chimes sound off for his 6am wake-up, I don’t hear a thing.”
