Got a snooze button addiction? Welcome to the world of cool alarm clocks designed to make you wake up and stay up. Because if your alarm has to go off 23,297 times before you finally roll out of bed each morning – you need a new alarm.
One that quickly gets you past the point of semi-consciousness into fully awake mode, ready to tackle the day ahead of you.
After all, the most effective alarm clock is the one that not only wakes you up – but makes sure you stay awake. These 11 cool alarm clocks will do just that.
Cool Alarm Clocks that Guarantee You Wake Up
These cool alarm clocks are designed for the sleep heavy and wake up resistant.
The Wake Up and Work Out Alarm Clock
We all say that we’re going to get fit. Just like we all say we’re going to wake up earlier. Well, with this dumbbell alarm clock, you can finally cross both resolutions off your list.
This alarm clock is loud enough to rouse you from your sleep and once it starts ringing, it won’t stop until you’ve performed 30 perfect bicep reps. Yup, there are motion sensors inside and they can tell exactly how many reps you’ve done and whether your upward swings are worthy so no cheating!
Just channel all the rage you feel about being woken from your sleepy pleasure into your bicep curls and by the time you’re done, you’ll be fully awake. The best part? Toned arms.
An Alarm Clock that Runs Away
You know what’s wrong with most alarm clocks? They are just too stationary. I mean, of course you’re going to press the snooze button – it’s right there next to you!
Not so with this alarm clock, my snooze-button-addicted friend. Not so.
You see, this alarm clock’s got wheels and a very hardy shell that it uses to escape from you nightstand and roll far, far away from you, beeping the whole time. To turn it off, you’ll have to catch it – or kill it with fire.
Lock and Load Alarm Clock
This has got to be one of the coolest alarm clocks ever invented – plus, it’s brilliantly effective. To get it to shut up, you have to shoot the target (not easy with groggy morning fog) and the alarm will keep on going off every 5 minutes ’til you get up to turn it off for good.
By then, you’ll be wide awake. The only downside to this cool alarm clock? It’s addicting – you might find yourself looking forward to a game of point-and-shoot every morning.
A Flying Alarm Clock
Fast on your feet in the mornings? Well, if you can easily outrun the alarm clock that runs away – you’ll want to upgrade to a flying alarm clock.
This little bugger makes the ever-annoying sound of planes taking off as the propeller flies off the alarm and blasts itself through your room (or house, if your door is open). To turn it off, you’ll have to retrieve the propeller from wherever it’s flown off to and return it to the base. Every morning.
iLuv SmartShaker 3
Remember the days when your mom used to come into your room and shake you to get out of bed and get ready for school? As annoying as that may have been back in the day, you got to admit it was pretty darn effective.
And whereas you may no longer be living in your mom’s house – you’re never too old to get shaken out of bed.
iLuv’s vibration bed shaker does just that. It’s got 5 vibration strengths from the gentle to the GET THE F*CK OUT OF BED, IT’S AN EARTHQUAKE so it’s perfect for every type of heavy sleeper.
Shock Clock Vibrating and Zapping Alarm Clock
Think vibrations aren’t quite enough to make sure you wake up and stay up? Try on the Shock Clock. This brilliant – and sadistic – alarm clock is designed to get anybody out of bed. Even the heaviest sleepers.
It’s got 6 wake up modes to ensure you wake up: zap, beep, vibration, or a combo of all three. Just the beeping and vibration might be enough for lighter sleepers. But heavy sleepers can enable the zap mode – yes, it will repeatedly zap you until you’re fully awake.
And for the heaviest sleepers? Enter the jumping jack mode. Set this up and the only way to get the alarm to turn off is to get out of bed and do jumping jacks. Yup. Sadistic. And brilliant.
Written Reminder Alarm Clock
This one’s really multi-purpose since you can scribble whatever you want to see first thing in the morning. If you think a simple reminder for something like a job interview or a motivational message is enough to make you roll out of bed, this could be a lovely little alarm clock to wake you and keep you up.
If that’s not enough to keep your eyes open, we suggest writing down the approximate time you have left to live – in days, hours, whatever you prefer, based on the average lifespan of your gender in your country. Morbid, yes. But it’ll wake you right up.
No Snooze Alarm Clock
Well, it’s not technically a “no snooze” alarm clock – but it’ll definitely deter you from pressing the snooze button.
How? This sadistic SingNShock alarm clock plays music to wake you up…and has an electric shock feature that will deliver a discouraging jolt every time you try to press the snooze button.
Carpet Alarm Clock
Also known as the “Stand Up to Wake Up” alarm clock, this clever little piece of carpet has a built-in sensor to detect whether you’re actually standing on it.
So stand you will. And as you stand, you’ll slowly feel the sleepiness seeping out of you. Well, that’s the idea anyway. Being a heavy sleeper, I think this alarm clock would do better to make you dance, Dance Dance Revolution style but hey, that’s just me.
Finger Dancing Alarm Clock
Speaking of dancing…turns out there is an alarm clock that makes you do a jig. But not you – your fingers.
This annoying little alarm goes off and off until you perform the right dance with your sleepy fingers. Improve your hand eye coordination and wake up on time. Win win.
Didn’t think alarm clocks could get more annoying than rolling around the room to make you chase after them? How about waking up each morning to a count down and then a rocket taking off from your very own night stand?
Yup. And to get the damn thing to shut off, you’ll have to go catch the flying rocket and return it to its base. You’ll be awake by the time that happens. Awake and angry but it’s the awake part that counts, right?
Money Shredding Alarm Clock
And finally…the alarm clock absolutely guaranteed to wake you up – straight up – is the money shredding alarm.
Yup, you read that right. This one is for the most hardcore of you, the most determined to make sure you get out of bed on time. Simply insert a $100 bill and doze off with the full assurance that you’ll be $100 poorer if you don’t wake up on time.
How bad do you want to become a morning person?
What makes it easier to wake up in the morning? Having something good – really good – to wake up to, of course. And no, we’re not talking about yet another hyperactive alarm clock you have to chase around the room.
Nope, this brilliant alarm contraption
rouses arouses you out of bed in a totally different manner. The only alarm clock to combine an alarm with a vibrator, the Wake-Up Vibe slips comfortably into your panties and will wake you from your slumber with some, ahem, very good vibrations.
We daresay you may start looking forward to your mornings.
