This month's Men's Health mag says it's better to wake up slowly to something soothing, rather than to spring up from a blaring alarm. Being the health lemming that I am, I started researching what else was out there. The options are actually pretty cool: Now & Zen - Stylish hippy clocks that wake you up by playing a sinlge chime in slowly decreasing time intervals in a span of 10min Hammacher Schlemmer - Probably the coolest (also the cheapest!). Uses light, aromas, nature sounds, and finally a buzzer at the end. All happens in 30min. LED Clock - Wake up to LEDs Soleil Sunrise - Mimmicks a sunrise. Guess I'm looking for any suggestions or possible reviews in this matter. I'd hate to buy the Hammacher and find out it's a cheap piece. Thanks.
