I was given the opportunity to use a $25 gift code to review a product, and the awesome folks at CSN are also going to give a $25 gift code to a lucky reader from the US or Canada.
I’ve had clocks on the brain ever since I started our mini bedroom makeover. My ugly black alarm clock was just not cutting it when it came style and design, so I’ve been keeping an eye out for a replacement.
Enter the That 70’s Retro Alarm Clock. Here are my favorite things about this clock. 1. Its red! 2. It arrived very, very quickly once I placed my order. 3. I really like the compact size and design.
As someone used to waking up to music, I didn’t know how I’d react to the sound of a regular alarm clock. I’m happy to report that this clock does not beep, but has a ringing tone that reminds me of a rotary phone ringing.
The instructions that came with the clock were a little sparse, so it took me a while to figure out how to set the alarm (OK, Brad figured it out for me!). It’s easiest to set the alarm to go off on an hour. If you try for something fancy like 7:45 or 8:15 you kind of have to use trial and error to figure out exactly where to set the alarm hand.
The only thing I don’t like about the clock is that it doesn’t have a snooze button. My snooze button and I are BFFs. During the school year, I purposefully set my alarm early so I can snooze for ten or twenty extra minutes. My body is just not used to springing out of bed at the first sound of an alarm. Honestly, this is probably a very bad habit, so I’m going to keep using my new clock this summer and try to condition myself to wake up after the first and only ring. We’ll see how it goes!
