Technically does what it says, but the reality is disappointing
3 December 2018
I bought this because I naturally wake up with the sun, and struggle to get up early in winter for work. Now, technically it does what it says - increases light intensity until your wake up time when it reaches peak light intensity and then plays bird sounds. The description says "The light stimulates you into waking up, exactly as you would on a summer’s morning".
The attached picture shows what I got in reality. A light that didn't wake me and, even if I put it on a bedside table, wouldn't do anything if I were facing the other way. I get the feeling this alarm clock is great if you're a very light sleeper, or sleep with the clock directly in front of your face. I didn't expect it to literally be like a summers morning but I would have thought the light intensity would have been more than just like a bright night light.
So overall, 2 stars; does what it says on the tin but what it says is misleading and not what you get in reality.
