Jolt yourself out of sleep with the Fire Bell alarm clock

Consider this alarm clock to be a sequel to the one I wrote about earlier, and what a harsh way to finish the sequence!

One look at the specs of the clock (in fact just one look at the clock) and you know that this baby will not let you ignore her. Imagine her scrrrr-ee-aa-ming at you on the top of her voice during the wee hours of the morning when all that you want to accomplish is within the confines of your dream world. Apart from the high decibel range, the clock has the usual tiny LCD screen and snooze feature.

Though I'm tempted to try all types of waking devices to help me get out of bed in the morning, I hold back because I believe it can't be healthy to have harsh noises waking me up. To support this belief, studies have also shown that the body wakes itself up by a series of internally (and precisely) timed signals in the morning as it is just getting adjusted to the needs of a new day. Harsh noises therefore disrupt this rhythm, and even if you do manage to get up, you only end up feeling groggy for the rest of the day.

This apart, if you still want to try the Fire Bell alarm clock, it's available from Spilsbury at $14.95. And be assured that for the price that you pay, you get only noise.
