Getting up in the morning is a struggle for many of us, but the right alarm can make it less painful.
There are a wide variety of apps and gadgets tailored to wake you exactly how you'd like in the morning. Maybe you're someone who needs a brutal alarm that prevents you from hitting the snooze button a million times, or one that forces you out of bed. Or maybe you want a gentler, elegant alarm, or one that gives you a little affirmation in the morning.
Whatever you need at the start of your day, these 9 innovative alarms will give it to you. From apps that force you to literally walk to stop them, to ones that stop you from having to fumble around for your phone, these are the best high-tech alarm clock solutions out there:
Walk Me Up is an alarm that doesn't stop until you start walking. It's a neat trick to get you out of bed, and hopefully once you're up you won't just jump right back in. But before you use this app please note that your phone can’t be in silent mode and you have to have notifications enabled.
Uhp tells all your Facebook friends if you don't get up.
Uhp’s unique feature is that the app can be set to shame you on Facebook or Twitter if you don’t get up. You can set it to post if you don’t walk away from your bed (with your phone), which is how Uhp determines whether you are up or not.
