Editor's Notes

November 15, 2018:

Added the Philips Wake-Up for its innovative sunrise simulation and cool-touch design, making it adult and kid-friendly. The IHome IBT29 can cycle through several colors and also allow for hands-free calling with its built-in mic. Both the Homedics SoundSpa and MPow LED are capable of projecting the time onto the wall or ceiling. Also included the Thpoplete Digital because of its multifunctional design and large, scratch-resistant display.
