Getting a good night's rest is more important than ever now.
But it's thought that keeping your smartphone near your bed for use as an alarm
can contribute to poor sleep habits.
News 12's gadget guru Andrew Ehinger shows us one alarm
clock that doesn't need a smartphone to work, and can help you get to sleep.
is an advanced alarm clock that may not look like
much, but it's all about "tech-life" balance. It's meant to have the
functionally of a smartphone, without the distracting screen or alerts.
Aside from having multiple alarms that are designed to wake
you up gently, it has several ways to help you relax. Things like soothing play
lists, sound baths and breath work exercises, all at the touch of a button or
controllable through the Loftie app. There's also a night light which can turn
on to remind you to start thinking about heading to bed.
