Why You Should Buy An Alarm Clock [Experiment]
"Buy an alarm clock. It will change your life". This is something many people (including top influencers Simon Sinek or Catherine Price) have been sharing for the last few years. 

Why You Should Buy An Alarm Clock

The reasons are numerous but it's all about the outcome. Worldwide acclaimed Youtuber Niklas Christl ran an insightful experiment with friends to show us why an alarm clock can change your life

KEY TIP: Analog alarm clocks don't necessarily have to be annoying or loud. Our alarm clocks are totally silent and come with a gentle alarm sound. 

Among Niklas Christl's key findings we can list:
- Higher levels of energy in the morning.
- Serious screen time reduction.
- More time to enjoy the little things that are around us (higher levels of attention). 
- Being more present.

Digital Alarm Clock or Analog Clock?

While unfortunately, digital alarm clocks are much more common these days than their analog forefathers, analog clocks still have a place in the market, and are still used by those who fear power outages, the harm of blue light or unreliability in their digital clock. Here are some key reasons why you should switch to an analog alarm clock

How Do Analog Alarm Clock Work?

Inside the analog alarm clock is a series of gears, powered by battery or plug-in electricity. These gears move the hands of the clock, using an oscillating wheel to keep the time consistent. On the alarm clock face will be an extra hand, typically shorter than the hour hand of the clock.
