A complete sleep/wake system to improve your everyday well-being
Since time began, humans have learned to respond to the rising dawn by slowly waking up. Today, however, we tend to startle ourselves awake with an abrupt alarm call that can leave us feeling weary and irritable all day. Fortunately, with these ingenious gradual sunrise alarm clocks, we can return to the natural way to wake.
The Lumie Bodyclock Elite 300 is a sunrise alarm clock that imitates a sunrise effect beside your bed - from the first faint glimmer of dawn, gradually increasing in brightness until you gently wake up the way nature intended, fresh and alert with your body clock perfectly synchronised.
The brightening light is a natural cue for your body to reduce the production of sleep hormones (e.g. melatonin) and gradually increase the levels of those that help you get up and go (e.g. cortisol).
Waking with the light every day will help to keep your sleep/wake cycle on track and has shown to boost your mood, productivity and energy levels for the rest of the day.
The Bodyclock Elite 300 features a unique innovation - its rear-facing light attractively simulates the rays of the dawning sun onto the wall making it the perfect natural light alarm clock
