One of the reasons that I started this blog was because I was really looking to improve my sleep. Of course, the most important part of good sleep is a good mattress but I believe that we need more than this. One thing I had always had difficulty coping with was waking up in the morning. I mean waking up to my phone’s alarm is not great, especially during winter. As I live in London, the winter is here for a long time so after seeing an advert in a magazine, I decided to buy my first ever wake up light, the Lumie Bodyclock GO 75. So let’s move to the review below so I can talk in more detail about this model.
The Lumie Bodyclock GO 75 is designed to wake you up with light. You can set this up to either create an artificial sunrise or an artificial sunset. The latter is used of course to help you sleep. Both the simulated sunrise and sunset can take between 20-45 min so you need to set them up accordingly so you can wake up at the intended time of yours. This is great as it gives you flexibility. I have my own set for 30 min which is the middle setting. If you want, you can add some alarm sounds like the Big Ben or chirping birds. In total, there are 5 alarm sounds to choose from.
The Lumie Bodyclock GO 75 has a curved design, that looks like the sun during sunrise with a black base. The base features 3 buttons and a small screen where the time is displayed. The clock needs a plug to work and there is no battery option. So before you purchase this, make sure there is a socket nearby. In general, the design looks nice but I personally would prefer a brighter colour for the base.
Is the Lumie Bodyclock Go 75 for me?
I found the Lumie Bodyclock GO 75 to be very useful for me and I did saw an improvement when waking up. It is a good ‘first’ wake up light to purchase before you consider the more expensive ones as it has all the features that you will need to test whether a wake-up light helps you. Other than the design of the base I could not find another flaw for this light so I believe the Lumie Bodyclock GO 75 is a great ‘first’ wake up light.
