The Digital Zen Alarm Clock is an electronic clock (with hourly chime feature), alarm clock, countdown timer, and interval repeating timer in one unit. The clock contains a metal bar chime as the signal tone for each of these functions. The chime has a long, sustaining ring that resonates, filling the room with its energy.
The chime rings on a progressive sequence that gradually awakens you in the morning or gently brings you out of a state of meditation or relaxation. The included booklet has several ideas for using this unique timer including progressive awakening, dreamwork, affirmations, meditation, and yoga or other relaxation practices.

I have never been a morning person. Waking up to a bleating clock radio, or to the frenetic buzzing of a screaming smartphone always gives me a bad start to my day. I specifically went looking for the least annoying alarm clock I could find, that wouldn't do anything like roll off the table and make me chase it, or launch tiny helicopters whizzing around my bedroom. I arrived at the Zen alarm clock. It took a few weeks to ship, but my mornings have been much, much better since I set it up on my dresser. The walnut finish is beautiful, and the amber glow of the clock face is unobtrusive and comforting. Just like the instruction manual says, the chime interval has been allowing me to smoothly transition into my day, giving me time to revisit my unfinished dreams, and to lay in bed until I feel awake enough to get up and turn it off. No need for a snooze button - the 10 minute chime progression works perfectly. I haven't used it as a meditation timer yet, but I expect it to work very well on that front, too.
This is a beautiful clock - it's functional and also a great piece of decor. Makes me feel like an adult.

This alarm clock is wonderful. No bright screens or numbers, and just a gentle chime to slowly awaken you. I like that I have removed the electronics from my bedroom, and this is a lovely addition.

This alarm wakes up my kids in a pleasant way. No jarring alarm. We all wake up in a good mood. Best alarm ever!

I love the beautiful sound of the single chime in the morning. I wake up in a good mood, hearing something beautiful and calming (rather than nerve-grating like most alarm clocks). I only need the one initial chime to get me up and moving. I love the sound of this alarm clock.

We liked the Digital Zen Alarm Clock and Chiming Meditation Timer so much, we purchased a second one from Sage Meditation (one for home, one for the office). It's great as a meditation timer and as a desk clock. Both are with the bamboo finish. It would be difficult for you to find one better!!

This is such a nice item that I needed to purchase a second one, one for home and one for work. I can't say enough good things about this item. The size is small enough for travel. The chime is pleasant for both a meditation chime and as a alarm clock. I will now have both the b-tone and e-tone. Also the bamboo wood is a most pleasant design.

I bought this because I wanted to get my devices (phone and tablet) off my nightstand. I could too easily get sucked into working or browsing at night, and forget to go to bed, or forget be present in my environment and focus on winding down. I also suspect that there may be an added benefit of limiting exposure to radiation by charging my mobile devices in a separate room at night. I searched high and low for the perfect alarm clock. It had to be aesthetically pleasing, have a peaceful sound effect to wake up to, and a back-light that doesn't stay on. This one meets all those requirements, and more. The clock is beautiful, of a high quality, easy to set and to turn on/off the alarm, and is multifunctional as well (for use in meditation). The chime progresses giving you time to wake up "gently." I want to buy these as gifts for all my friends and family. LOVE IT! Shopping with Sage Meditation was a pleasure, and shipping was speedy as well.
