Review Content So far so good! I use this every night. I especially like the ocean noise. The aromatherapy feature is a plus. Dependable It is easy to set, however it jumps right to sunrise, does not start out dimly & get brighter. Still, it does the job well. The previous model(12 Years old) started very dim & gradually got very bright...but was very hard to set for accurate wake up time. Feature filled Wake and Sleep System I love the sounds, I was using an app on my phone before - but the sound quality on this is so much better. I use the light feature occasionally and that is the only time you get the aroma (the smell is barely noticeable). Setting and time and also setting the alarm are so easy. I do wish there was a separate volume control for the alarm and also more options for the alarm sound, chimes are the only option other than the sounds that are included. Like the fact you can have the sound play for a certain amount of time or have it on all night. IT WORKS! This has been working wonderfully for me to both get me to sleep and for gentle wake up to sound and light. I dont care for the scents they include because too perfumed and artificial but can use your own. The sounds are great and alot of controls with volume and intensity of light. The optional wake to vibration/pillow speaker wasnt included which i wish it had been. really like my new clock and so glad i invested in this new sleep routine. awesome product! I have a stressful job and sometimes have trouble relaxing at the end of the day to begin my meditation practice. I have found the ocean wave sound very helpful in getting me into that space. I also love the gradual waking feature. Mornings are far more pleasant!! Great product-coouldnt sleep witout it! Work nights-has made sleeping during the day much better!! Make sure your partner is on board I never got to fully try this out. The first morning, when the light came on, it woke up my husband, who was not happy about it. One of the main features that attracted me to this alarm was the idea of waking up to a nice scent. Alas, you have to have the light feature enabled in order to warm up the scent beads. So I returned the clock without ever getting to check out the aromatherapy feature. LIKE A KISS ON THE FACE INSTEAD OF SLAP YOU WONT JUMP OUT OF BED ! Finally found a good alarm clock replacement After ordering a couple other sunrise alarm clocks this was the best product we found , we returned the more expensive sunrise alarm clocks to their manufacturers and kept this one , I dont think you can go wrong with this product , and its easy to set up ! clock I love that you can dim and even turn off the clock face light. I am super sensitive to light disturbing my sleep. Love It!!!! It is a great way to fall asleep and even better to wake up to. This device has it all This helps with tinnitus at bedtime. I especially like the pillow speakers (which I purchased separately). Waking to the gently increasing light is similar to waking with the sun. Very well thought out product. Love this sleep system This reminds me of sleeping on cruises to the ocean waves. Very peaceful! I dont like that the light cant be dimmed more. Also, I sleep so soundly that the chimes are too soft...sound like harps...nice, but need more to wake me. Luckily my dogs wake to the light and chimes:) Would definitely recommend This product is great for waking up and good for falling asleep. I have never been much of a morning person, and always hit snooze at least three times. Having this has made waking up much less stressful. works well Because I have trouble falling asleep, I have used my unit every night since its purchase. I already own a "white noise" only unit, but wanted to try a machine which offered other sounds. Out of the six sounds offered by this unit, I have found the "ocean" and the "white noise" to be the most helpful for me. I dont find the "light therapy" to be of much use, since the light intensity stays bright up until the end of the timed sessions. It would have been nice if the light would dim as the sessions time down. Because the "aroma therapy" only works with the light being on, to warm the beads up, It is not of much use as the unit is designed. It would be nice to take advantage of the aroma therapy, as I do like the different scents offered, and I do think they would add in helping to fall asleep, however, it only works with the light being on full blast. If you dont mind the light being on at high intensity, I would recommend this unit. Daughter likes My daughter seems to like her new alarm clock. She doesnt hear a regular alarm but the light wakes her up. She did complain that the clock is way too bright so she has it turned toward the wall - defeating the purpose of having a clock in her room. Good thing her phone is attached to her hand and she can check her phone for the time. Would have liked to have a charger/I-phone dock and get rid of some of the cords in her bedroom. I dont like smells so she isnt allowed to use the aroma packets. All in all she likes it and is getting up easier on her own so its a keeper. great product! I use this product to fall asleep and wake up. The light and sounds are gentle and soothing. The aromatherapy feature is not well designed, it does not put off enough scent to be noticeable. It is a bit large and unattractive for an alarm clock, due to the light feature and button controls, but I face the buttons towards the wall so it looks more like a lamp. The back-lighting can dimmed or completely turned off. perfect perfect I love my new sleep system I especially love the gentle wake up alarm rather than the noise of a radio. LOVE sleeping to the ocean waves I like the tower shape. I wish it came in black. I love the ocean waves. Thats the main reason I purchased it! While cruising, I always sleep so peacefully. I also like the aroma that wakes you! Nice. I wish the dimmer light was able to dim more and am still trying to figure out how to get the system to just chime and blink to wake me. I do not like the bright light that comes on 1/2 hour before time set. Great product This is a great product! I love waking up to the gradual light, sounds, and scent. It has helped me get to sleep with the white noise and wake up with the light. The nature sound are very clear. My kids love this alarm clock so much that I catch them in my bed with one of the nature sounds on. It is a very useful product and well worth the money. Natural Wake and Sleep System review I really like the product. I have traffic noises outside my window. Since buying it I sleep better. I like the timing on the sounds. I only dislike the way the top is easily knocked off when you reach to high for the snooze button. I like the way the product is streamlined. Suggestion is to add the crackling fire place noise is the only change I would make excluding the more secure top. Love this clock! I had the original model of this clock for 10 years, and used it daily before it died. This updated model is even better - better looking, and has some nice features that the old one didnt have. The wake-up "chime" is very lovely, sort of an arpeggio of notes - gentle, but persistent. It gets louder as it plays. Perfect if you dont like being jarred out of a sound sleep by a beep or a buzz. You can turn the display light OFF, which is great. I used to have to cover the old clock to prevent it from lighting up my room. The only "improvements" I would suggest are needed are (1) the light is much too bright. It really jars me out of sleep, so I dont use the "sunrise" feature any more. I would have to go back to covering the clock with a black cloth to make the light dim enough for a gentle wake-up; and (2) it would be nice to be able to have nature sounds followed by the chimes, but without the light. However, you are limited to the preset combinations of light/sounds/chime. Also, the control buttons a Good but could be better It would be helpful if the alarm on/off button was more prominent and stood out more from the others, and if you didnt have to set it to go off every night. Versital. Nice aroma therapy! Nice multifunction device!! I am loving this Alarm clock! Thank you Every morning I use my alarm clock and wanted something peaceful to ease me out of sleep. I had one years ago with a CD player and 20 soothers. Honestly i liked that one better but this one is nice to and does the job. You dont carry the old one anymore :( I like that is uses light, aroma, and sound to ease me out of bed. I dont like that is is so big because I dont think I would be able to travel with it. Great Product I use this product to fall asleep every night and to wake up each morning. I am satisfied with all of the features with the exception of the aromatherapy. It does not warm the scent beads enough to put off any aroma. Could be better - but I still like it I use to have a moonbeam clock, but the dial was so bright at night that it kept me up - so I searched for something different - hence this clock. What I like about it is you can totally turn off the backlight (which is horribly bright - a harsh yellow light - red would have been a much better choice), and turn the volume on the chime and nature sounds down very very low. What I dont like is the brightness of the wakeup light - much too bright as soon as it turns on. The thunderstorm is my favorite feature it is so natural sounding - can go to sleep to it and then wake up to it as well - sadly you can not choose nature sound and chime (have to have light too) - so sometimes I fall back asleep in the morning. Lots of cool features ; a few weaknesses Waking to the chime is really nice. The thunderstorm and white noise sounds are great. The others -- I can hear the sound loop repeating over and over. I dont like the reset button -- too easy to accidentally reset the whole clock while reaching for one of the buttons in the dark. It would be nice if you could go to sleep to a sound on a low volume, and wake to the same sound at a higher volume -- Im afraid the sound volume I use to fall asleep would not wake me up in the morning. Overall, the chime and the couple of nice sleep sounds have made this worth having. Natural Wake and Sleep System to aid with my CPAP machine If I had it to do all over, I would do i the lamp on time should be adjustable along with the nature sound Way better than a jarring alarm clock I reset once and set for pm vs am because I couldnt tell. It wakes you up 1/2 hr before alarm so adjusted my time accordingly. It is so much nicer than the buzzer or even the radio. Every 15 minutes it changes so first the light, than a sound, then a chime so easy to tell how long it has been. Enjoy the chime tone and the assortment of sounds. Havent used the aromatherapy but it sounds appealing. Very glad we purchased it. I want to give for Christmas gifts. It does everything it says it does, Love it! Best Alarm Clock Ever I cant wake up when its dark. This allows me to wake up with light. Does everything! The sounds, the smells, the lights are all fantastic. It looks nice, too. My only issue is that it is very lightweight, so when you press the buttons, it tends to move. My solution was to put something heavy behind it. But there is nothing else like it on the market. what a great idea- covers all my sleep/waking needs Great selection of sleep sounds, I like the rain sound to help cover the ringing in my ears and I have peaceful sleep. I have NEVER woken up so peacefully and I havent had to hit the snooze once! nice unit I had already owned a "white noise" only sleep unit before purchasing this unit. I had wanted to try something with a few different sounds for a comparison. The "white noise" still seems to be the best sound for me to fall asleep. The "ocean noise" with this unit, also, works well. I like the idea of the aroma therapy, but you have to have the night light on for it to warm the crystals, and work. The night light would be fine if it would dim as the timer progresses. However, the light stays on through out the timed session, which is really bright, even when on the dimmed down setting. The chimes for waking up is a nice feature. Although not all of the sounds work well for me, I would recommend this unit. Easy operation I have always had a problem getting to sleep but since getting this I fall asleep within 10 to 15 minutes every night My New way to fall asleep easily It is so peaceful. You chose your choice sound. You chose how long you want the sound on. So easy to set. You feel in control. I have COPD but the aroma therapy includes lavender a smell I can tolerate. Sooo nice! My only con is my personal preference to blue light vs white. It does have a dimmer so it is ok. I would also rather have a black tower vs white. Great gift for the price. Im not easily impressed but this is a great product.
