We believe the only thing better than sleep is waking up. Because that’s where all the love starts. We believe in waking up better, so you can live better and breathe better and think better.
OneClock is not an alarm clock. We don’t believe in alarms. We researched the best tones, tempos and frequencies to wake you up. Then we asked Jon Natchez from The War on Drugs to create a collection of musical compositions to lift you out of sleep in a peaceful, more natural way.
There’s a growing body of sonic research outlining the importance of waking up correctly and its effect on our mood and behavior. Many alarms trigger a spike in blood pressure and heart rate which activates the fight-or-flight response of your nervous system. OneClock’s sounds are designed to activate your brain as you sleep, then wake you gently and reliably.
To induce the changes in our brain’s activity that mimic natural awakening, our compositions gently increase in volume, fading in over a full minute, before continuing at a volume of your choice.
Our brains are hardwired to hear melody. OneClock uses the innate biological power of melody versus simple, unrefined alarm tones.
Loud, jarring sounds create stress. Our sonic compositions gently build in melody, tempo, and intensity to lift you from your sleep.
Humans can suffer from alarm fatigue and become desensitized to sounds they hear repetitively, day-after-day. Our sounds play through a custom audio filter affecting the overall EQ (bass, timbre, pitch, reverb) to create a unique, nuanced composition each day. Which helps prevent alarm fatigue and gets you on your feet.
Let’s save the alarms for fires, burglaries and submarines. You deserve better, so we created a new way to wake up. Have a listen.
