Bypass the traditional variety and opt for alarm clocks that donate money every time you hit snooze, display gentle white lights and vibrations and force you to move around to shut them off. To give residents of the Wellington Court Apartments and Executives Suites an idea of the unconventional alarm clocks that are currently on the market, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together a list of a few that are worth checking out.


Clocky Alarm Clock

If you’re the kind of person who needs a jumpstart or a jolt in the morning, the Clocky Alarm Clock by Nanda Home is a product that was made with you in mind. This quirky clock jumps three feet from your nightstand and rolls away beeping to motivate you to get up – as it literally forces you to chase after it. For those who love hitting their snooze button, you can only hit snooze once so use it wisely.


Shape Up Alarm Clock

Start your day off with a workout by making the Shape Up Alarm Clock by Fred and Friends part of your morning routine. Simply set this dumbbell-style alarm clock and in the morning this workout-conscious invention will annoyingly buzz until you’ve completed 30 reps.

“Snooze You Lose” Alarm Clock

With the SnūzNLūz (TM), the age-old adage of “if you snooze you lose” has never been truer. By connecting via Wi-Fi to your online bank account, this ingenious alarm donates real money to an organization of your choice every time you hit the snooze button.


Light Alarm

Imagine waking up to a simulated sunrise, listening to the weather report, daily news or your favourite tunes. All of these can be accomplished with the Bio Brite Sunrise Clock Radio. Users have the ability to program their own sunrise and sunset for 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes and additional features are available including a backup audible alarm, a snooze option, nightlight options and even a security feature that can alert you that someone is at home. You can also choose between 12 or 24-hour time read-outs depending on your personal preference.


Silent Alarm

Avoid the unpleasant sound of your alarm clock going off in the morning by opting for one that wakes you up without any sound. This conceptual alarm clock by designer Johan Brengesjo wakes you up with gentle vibrations and can be set to snooze with the shake of your hand. However, each time you hit the snooze button, the alarm requires greater movement than it did before to disable it. This will make sure you can catch a few more zs without being late for work, school and/or appointments.


Lightsleeper Alarm Clock

Designed as a pillow and a duvet, the Light Sleeper has been built to make the body react to an imitation of sunrise using electroluminescent technology. Over a 15-20 minute period, the bedding will start to glow and wake up the user in a gentle, soothing and natural way. One of the main selling points of this creative alarm clock is its ability to use people’s natural body clocks to wake them up.


With these unusual and inventive alarm clocks, your mornings will definitely be a lot more entertaining and enjoyable. Most of these options are available online or at larger novelty shops. Located at 455-475 Maiden Lane and 342 Gordon Street, Williams and McDaniel’s Wellington Court Apartments and Executives Suites are an ideal rental option for those currently looking in Fergus.
