If you decide to buy an alarm clock, it can help you get a better night's sleep. After all, many people today wake up with their smartphones. However, this has numerous negative side effects. For example, you may wake up in the middle of the night because you need to go to the bathroom or need something to drink. If you then take a look at the screen of your smartphone to check the time, the blue light stops the production of the sleep hormone melatonin. This makes it harder for you to fall asleep again. Maybe you're checking your email or reading the latest news on your lock screen. All of these are factors for poorer sleep. A classic alarm clock, on the other hand, will only tell you the time and will not feed you with other information.

Before everyone had an alarm clock, people were woken up by either crows or the sunlight. If you lived in the city, church bells had a similar function. The few who had to get up before dusk were woken up by the night watchman. The invention of the alarm clock dates back to 1787. An American named Levi Hutchins developed the first alarm clock, but it could only sound at a single time. 60 years later, Frenchman Antoine Redier filed the first official patent for a mechanical alarm clock. The birth of the alarm clock as we know it today. This alarm clock could also be set at different alarm times.
In the course of industrialization in the 19th century, it was necessary for white-collar and blue-collar workers to arrive at work on time. At that time, the Black Forest wooden watches were the cheapest way to be woken up safely. A more expensive option would be mass-produced table clocks with an alarm function. From 1860 onwards, the most popular model for petty-bourgeois households was the Parisian alarm clock, produced in France. Unlike the models from America, this one had a high-quality movement with solid plates and gears. With the transition to the 20th century, the design of the alarm clock also changed. The back wall now served as a sound body and the bell disappeared. Numerous shapes and alarm clocks in a wide variety of colors were created, so that there was something for every taste.
Nowadays, technological progress seems almost unlimited. New technologies are emerging and humanity is constantly evolving. This was also the case with the invention of the smartphone. Tasks that a few years ago were taken over with many different objects such as a camera, a magnifying glass or the alarm clock, are now all bundled in one small device. This makes a whole lot of things easier and easier for us in everyday life. But is that always a good thing? No! Every photographer knows that photos with a mobile phone camera are not nearly as high quality and sharp as with a professional camera and lens. This is also the case with alarm clocks. Of course, the mobile phone can reliably sound at a certain time, but our brain will react to external stimuli in this way. And let's be honest, the first thing that will happen after waking up is a look at the mobile phone. After 10 minutes in the virtual world, we wonder where the time has gone and rush back to our everyday lives. Please keep in mind that these are the first 10 minutes of the day. Our brain is much more receptive to external stimuli and will process them differently. For example, bad news in the first minutes of the day does not put you in a good mood. An alarm clock, on the other hand, will only wake you up. No unnecessary information, no further stimuli. Studies have shown that in the long run, you start the day healthier and in a better mood if you banish the smartphone from everyday life in the morning.
