Cambridge-based light therapy specialist Lumie is launching its most premium wake-up light today. Lumie Bodyclock Luxe 750D (RRP £199) is an upgrade on the Luxe 700, offering
DAB radio in addition to bluetooth and low-blue light to make it non-alerting at bedtime.
Lumie Bodyclock is a range of wake-up lights, alarm clocks that mimic a sunset to help you drift off to a good night’s sleep and a sunrise to wake you naturally with light. Using light in this way has been shown to improve mood, energy and productivity as well as the quality of sleep and awakening. Lumie was the first to pioneer the wake-up light concept in the early 90s and its products are certified medical devices and therefore backed by academic research and rigorous health and safety standards.
In addition to the new DAB radio function, Lumie Bodyclock Luxe 750D features a low-blue light so it is non-stimulating at bedtime and mimics the colours of a real sunrise and sunset. You can select from more than 20 wake-up and sleep sounds including white noise and also enjoy high-quality audio; in addition to DAB radio, you can stream music via bluetooth or play music via the USB port, which you can also use to charge your phone.
‘We know that a strong light signal at dawn and dusk is important for keeping our bodyclock on track, particularly in the winter months, as it provides a clear transition between day and night. The low-blue light in the sunset feature on Lumie Bodyclock Luxe 750D should encourage the brain to switch off helping you to fall asleep and have a good night’s sleep.’ Dr Victoria Revell explains, a chronobiologist from the University of Surrey
