Not to sound dramatic, but replacing my smartphone with an actual alarm clock is one of the best decisions I've made in 2020. Without the temptation to check my email or scroll through social media, I actually read the books on my nightstand, fall asleep easily and wake up feeling refreshed, without ever hitting the snooze button.

If you're eager to make the switch, too, these alarm clocks should do the trick. They're all stylish, equipped with cool features and cost less than $100, so you can find the perfect one for your budget.

They also come in bright colors like red, yellow and royal blue, which adds an artistic element to any bedroom.
