Hatch Restore SoundMachine and Smart Light

The era of using your smart phone as your alarm clock is over: In some respects, it's time to go old-school and situate a good-looking time teller permanently onto your nightstand. Today's alarm clocks, however, are anything but retro—there's no need to go back to the cumbersome black block, ominous red display and all, that once jolted you awake with a digitized shriek.

Top Picks

Your modern-day wake-up call is anything but jarring. Several contemporary machines even have built-in guided meditations, sleep sounds, and soothing color settings, so you can wake up calm and centered. And if the high-tech come-to isn't for you? At least upgrade to a prettier model. Ahead, you'll find a bit of both—new-age and classic (but elevated!) options—so you can start your morning stronger.
