Tech of the Month: alarm clock (Amplicomms TCL 400)

Do you struggle to get up on your own in the morning?

There are loads of alarms that can help you wake up. Some are small, use vibrations and don’t show the time. This is great for some people, but what if you need a more powerful alarm clock that also shows the time on a large display to get you up in the morning? In that case you may like the Amplicomms TCL 400.

It’s an alarm clock with an extra-large display and a very loud alarm that you can increase to wake you up. It also has flashing LED lights and you can connect a strong vibrating pad. Set the alarm to go off using sound, light and vibrations and waking up should hopefully be less of a struggle!
