Sure, you can use your iPhone as a bedside alarm, but text-message vibrations – and the urge to read them – can crush your sleep cycle. That's why we heartily endorse charging your phone in another room and using the solid aluminum Punkt AC 01 for wake-up duties. British designer Jasper Morrison's design embraces simplicity and quality, with an easy-to-read face and sturdy rocker switch. Three separate batteries, one of which is dedicated just to the alarm, ensures your alarm stays powered up to wake you up. The other two power the sleek LED light-ring around the dial, which turns on any time you squeeze the clock to read the time in, say, the middle of the night. It comes black, white, and – our favorite – orange. [$145; punktgroup.com]
