Peakeep 4 inches Twin Bell Alarm Clock

(best analog alarm clock)

My profession is technology. I get enough technology at work. So when it comes to alarm clocks, my personal preference are analog alarm clocks.

If you are like me, and like analog alarm clocks, you will find this particular model to be the best alarm clock with twin bells.

Having no snooze button, this alarm clock forces you to get out of bed to shut off the rather loud mechanical alarm sound. Despite the alarm sound being powerful, the clock hands are silent at night, so you will not feel any discomfort. Keep in mind, however, that such old-school alarms have to be set every night, and this model is no exception.

This retro-looking alarm clock has many color options you can chose from. I like the green, because it matches my room design perfectly.

iHome iPL24 Alarm Clock

(best phone dock alarm clock)

What I found to be convenient about this particular alarm clock aside the actual alarm clock functionality is the fact that you can charge two devices with its help. You can, for example, dock your iPhone to it and connect another device via USB.

As for the actual alarm, you can wake up to an FM radio station, music from your smartphone or just the buzzer (there is a backup battery, just in case).

You could also listen to music while falling asleep, and your alarm clock will make sure to lower the volume as time goes by. To be honest with you, that’s what I found myself using most of the time while testing this gadget.
