Loftie Alarm Clock – Minimalist Alarm Clock w/ Dual Alarm & Wellness Sounds

Nowadays, almost all of us are highly dependable on our Smartphones, not only for texting and calling our friends and family, but also to check our emails, perform work-related tasks, keep up with Social Media, and obviously, to wake up with our phone’s Alarm. In reality, many people spend a lot of time staring at the screens of their phones, even during the nighttime. According to a study conducted in early 2022, approximately 66% of Americans check their phones around 160 times per day. Shockingly, almost the same number of people (around 65.7%) in the US also admitted to sleeping with their Smartphones close to their beds at night. Now, it’s important to keep in mind that using your Smartphone right before bedtime can be abjectly bad for your sleep. In fact, a study from 2019 has shown that the blue light emitted by our devices can negatively impact our sleep, which consequently, can also affect our productivity and even our mood. That’s because that same blue light suppresses the body’s release of melatonin, a hormone responsible for making us feel drowsy / sleepy. While almost everyone depends on their Smartphone’s Alarm to wake up daily, it would be nice to have a better alternative. As a matter of fact, there is, and it’s called the Loftie Alarm Clock.

The Loftie Clock is a simplified and thoughtfully connected smart alarm clock that’s specifically designed to replace your smartphone’s alarms so that you can ultimately get more sleep, featuring a dimmable digital display, a warm nightlight, a built-in Bluetooth speaker, and a Two-Phase Alarm Clock.

Users can easily customize different settings for the Loftie’s Two-Phase Alarm according to their personal needs, including its alarm tone, the volume-level, and also the days of the week that they want it to be active.

Moreover, the Loftie also boasts a built-in Library of Custom Wellness Content that basically consists of different relaxing sounds, including Sleep-Time Playlists, Soundbaths, Breathwork Exercises for guided meditation, and even many different Background Noises.

Additionally, you can also add your own Media Content to this smart alarm clock and play it directly from its built-in Bluetooth Speaker.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the Loftie Alarm Clock and check out everything that this ultra-minimalist smart alarm clock has to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the device’s size, the Loftie comes at a fairly compact size, measuring just 2.75 inches long by 6.5 inches wide by 2.75 inches tall. Moreover, this alarm clock is also fairly lightweight, as it only weights 1.8 pounds.

Now, since the Loftie Clock was designed as a simplified alarm clock, the device actually packs a truly minimalist and very discrete design, with its body only portraying a stealthy solid-black color all around.

Minimalist Design & Durable Construction

Nevertheless, despite its very simple design, the Loftie still features a very durable construction, as its body mainly consists of a Polycarbonate Shell that’s made of really high-quality plastic, ultimately giving the device a really sturdy build.

Moreover, at the top-side of the device, we also have an integrated Steel Top Grill that covers the Loftie’s built-in Bluetooth Speaker, which is what’s used for playing the Loftie’s Alarm Sounds and all of its Custom Wellness Audio Content.

Last but not least, keep in mind that this minimalist smart alarm clock is designed to work as an electric-powered device, and as such, you need to have it powered to electricity via its included USB-C Power cable and its AC Power Adapter.

It’s also worth pointing out that the Loftie also comes equipped with a built-in Rechargeable Back-Up Lithium-Ion Battery that keeps the device powered in case your residence’s power goes out.

INTERFACE & CONTROL PANEL

Moving on to the Loftie’s interface and control panel (meaning its built-in Controls).

Starting at the front-side of the alarm clock, we have a built-in Dimmable Digital Display. At the center-side of the clock’s Dimmable Display we have a large digital timer that represents the current time of the day, while below it, there’s a slightly smaller digital timer that display your pre-configured Alarm Time.

Auto-Dimmable Digital Display

Note that the Loftie’s Dimmable Display automatically adjusts / dims its screen’s brightness as the day goes by.

Not only that, but the Loftie’s Dimmable Display can also be set to work in a Full-Blackout Mode, which completely turns off its display, thus helping you maintain a completely dark sleeping space.

Furthermore, at the bottom-side of the clock, there’s also a built-in Adjustable Night Light that provides a warm and relaxing glow that can easily help you to fall asleep (unlike the blue light emmited by the screens of our devices, which can easily disrupt sleep).

Then, at the top-side of the unit, we have its Control Panel, which, going from left to right, basically consists of a Snooze / Nightlight Button that also doubles as a Return Button, a Previous and Next Option Switch (Dual Button), and a Select Button that doubles as an On/Off Power Button.

The clock’s Previous and Next Option Switch allows you to cycle between the options available within its different Menus.

Lastly, its Select Button can be used as an On/Off Power Button, or, as the name indicates, to select a Menu option, to Play / Pause music, or to stop / shut-down its pre-configured Alarm.
