AlarmDock Halo 2 App-enhanced Alarm Clock for iPod and iPhone
The newly refined AlarmDock Halo 2 is the second generation of the AlarmDock Halo, and part of the second generation of smart, app-enhanced products, from GEAR4. With a new premium fabric, sleek-black design and beautifully enhanced LCD display, Halo 2 looks stylish in any bedroom. Furthermore, its small footprint means the alarm clock sits comfortably on the smallest of bedside tables.
Features for the AlarmDock Halo 2 include a dimmable LCD display designed for visibility, without keeping you awake at night, and a 12 / 24 hour alarm clock with optional wake-up from the classic buzzer sound, FM radio or music from your iPod. The inclusion of an easyreach snooze button means the Halo 2 is the perfect bedside companion.
Auto-Sync Time and Alarms
Dock your iPhone / iPod touch onto the AlarmDock Halo 2 and launch the SmartLink app. The time on the clock radio will automatically sync with that on your device, including synching any alarms already set within the SmartLink app. Set alarms on-the-go, wake with confidence.
Case Friendly Dock
Docking wells are a thing of the past. The AlarmDock Halo 2 comes with a universal dock which means a reinforced flexible connector and no more individual dock adaptors. You can also dock your iOS device with its case on. Hassle free docking: more time playing your music.
Line-in Port for Use with Other Music Players
Use the AlarmDock Halo 2 with any music player with a 3.5mm jack. Enjoy your favourite music, movies or games from a Smartphone, MP3 player, tablet or Laptop by connecting a 3.5mm audio cable into the line-in port.
Tune and save your favourite stations with the Halo 2. Scan for the nearest station with the press of a button and store as a pre-set. Halo 2 can store up to 9 pre-sets so you’ll never forget a station.
The AlarmDock Halo 2 includes a handy remote control that allows you to operate the alarm clock from just about anywhere in the room. As well as playback controls, you'll also be able to adjust the volume, mode settings, repeat or shuffle functions and access iPod menus.
