Your phone is a terrible alarm clock – here are four better ones

Back to school or college this year? If you change one thing, you should not use your phone as an alarm clock. In fact, you shouldn’t even have your phone in your room, based on the latest research. Instead you should be using another device such as an alarm clock, the best wake-up lightor the best smart speaker to help you get up instead.

Keeping your phone by your bed can affect your sleeping patterns. It’s not because of any kind of radiation from your device, which is largely unproven pseudoscience, but rather a combination effect of a more relaxed state of mind, and less exposure to blue light and addictive apps in the moments before sleep, after sleep, and upon waking up in the middle of the night.
