Smart alarm clocks are the answer to all your waking woes. This list is chock full of practical yet innovative alarms to help you actually get out of bed.
Ruggie Alarm Clock Rug
Nothing gets you out of bed in the morning like needing to get out of bed. This small rug sounds off at your desired time in the morning. But in order to turn it off, you’ll have to put both feet on top for three (long) seconds. That’s enough movement to wake you up for good.

Nintendo Game Over Alarm Clock
If standing on a rug isn’t quite enough, try the Nintendo Game Over Alarm Clock. Looking just like a Game Boy, it actually plays the Super Mario Land theme song to awaken you. In addition, you can use the included Nintendo controller to set your alarm each night for a touch of nostalgia.

Withings Aura Connected Alarm Clock
There are few things as disruptive as a blaring alarm clock at 6 o’clock in the morning. The Aura Alarm Clock instead uses a smart light to gently wake you. Or, you can have it play your favorite tunes. In addition, it uses the same light technology to help you fall asleep.
Why we love it: It’s a gentle and natural way to wake up.
