I'm looking to buy one of those light waking up devices.
I'm looking at the Philips ones, Naf Naf , and Lumie Bodyclock. Any recommendations/thoughts? Links below

I have 10 alarms and I leave the blinds open and that doesn't wake me up. I wish one of those would!!!

I was looking at getting one of these but figured it wouldn't be much use in the summer months when the sun will rise earlier than me anyway!

I have the Lumie Bodyclock - the one above the bottom one of your pics. I usually wake with the light before the alarm, and find the going to sleep sunset light really helps me.

ETA - Also has snooze function.

I think that the main thing is to make sure that your lamp is actually the daylight spectrum, rather than a so-called 'full spectrum'.
These have recommended products:

One of my sons has had a natural light waking up lamp for years. It gets gradually brighter - I can't remember the make sorry - and he swears by it.

I have the newer version of the philips. Very happy with it. it is this one - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-Wake-Up-Light-HF3475-01/dp/B002BA5FB6/ref=pd_sim_d_3
BUT it has been significantly cheaper from them. I paid £70, so if you can wait a little, I would recommend that one :)

The only problem with the Philips is that you can't change the bulb if it blows out, making me reluctant to get that one

Can I ask which one you use? I'm thinking of getting the Starter one, the last one in the first post. :)

I have this one brah http://www.lumie.com/shop/products/bodyclock-sunray-100

my ex bought it for me. think she got it from boots and got points or something... if you don't have a boots card then just get one from the store as you get a temporary one straight away and it works out at 4% back in points. if you register and wait a little while they send you your plastic permanent card and little starter vouchers that give you like double points. so 8% off aint bad.

i've had mine for about 2years now and it is still working off it's first bulb. you can get replacement bulbs off ebay.

the one i have is great but the only thing i wish it has was a snooze button. i dunno if the other models have that/is a feature you want

Thanks for your reply byker

I've been looking at a few, and quite like this one:
http://www.boots.com/en/Lumie-Bodyclock-Starter-Plus_983843/?CAWELAID=358555304&cm_mmc=Shopping%20Engines-_-Google%20Base-_---_-Lumie%20Bodyclock%20Starter%20Plus.
It's also available at John Lewis for the same price.

What I was wondering about is, does the whole waking up with a gradual light thing actually work for you?

yeah it does, if i had a really late night then the sound alarm (built in also) wakes me up but because the light is on too it makes getting out of bed easier. if i have a better nights sleep then i wake up before the alarm goes off because of the light.

the light comes on gradually its not a sharp switch on.

the one you linked is just an updated version of mine, go for it.

Why do you need one of these lights?


its an alarm clock. not as jarring as a sound alarm!
