On Sunday, March 9, we’ll spring our clocks forward an hour for Daylight Savings. However, if you struggle getting up every morning, losing an hour during your weekend is definitely going to make March 9 a difficult, lethargic day for you. Check out some of these tech-savvy alarm clocks to help make your Daylight Savings day a little more bearable.

HoMedics SoundSpa® Premier AM/FM Clock Radio 

While you cannot hook an MP3 player up to HoMedics’ alarm clock, this device displays indoor and outdoor temperature, six different nature sounds and time and temperature projection onto the wall or ceiling. (39.99)

Cube LED Alarm Clock

If you’re a sleeper that needs total darkness to catch some Z’s, this alarm clock eliminates light by only displaying the time when the gadget is tapped or when you clap your hands. The time will display for eight seconds before fading out. The neutral colors and simple design blend perfectly with any decor. ($32)


Force yourself out of bed with Clocky, the alarm clock that runs away from you when it’s time to wake up. Situated on two wheels, this clock puts away an annoying beeping noise as it races off your nightstand until you get up and turn it off. Basically, Clocky combines your need to get out of bed along with your desire to get in a morning workout every day. ($33)

Defusable Clock

Be careful when ordering this clock as it really does look like a bomb made of TNT sticks (very similar to a what you would see in an old Looney Tunes cartoon). To silence the alarm on this clock, you must defuse it by picking the correct wire. Seems like a nice little brain exercise to get your morning going. ($32.95)

Dreams Money-Saving BanClock

To turn the alarm off on this Japanese alarm clock, you must feed it some kind of coin currency. If you’re a snooze button addict, this is a great way to motivate yourself to pay for sleeping later than you should while saving money. ($75.99)

Sonic Bomb® with Super Shaker

Going off at 113 decibels (the same pitch as a jackhammer), this alarm clock puts out a blaring noise while red lights flash and the device actually vibrates on your nightstand. This is the ultimate alarm clock for heavy sleepers that guarantees to get you out of bed. ($49.95) Everyone knows the old saying, “The early bird catches the worm.” Make sure you don’t oversleep on Sunday the 9th (or any other day for that matter) with these unique, tech-saavy alarm clocks.
