If you often have trouble falling asleep or waking up, Amazon customers are raving about this Hatch Restore sound machine with a sunrise alarm clock that they say helps them drift to sleep quickly and wake up refreshed.

The Hatch Restore sound machine includes a library of soothing sounds, a soft-glow reading light and a sunrise alarm clock that helps you wake up gently without the startling noise of traditional alarms.

The sunrise alarm clock on the Hatch Restore quietly and naturally wakes you up as if the sun is rising, which is supposed to support healthy levels of cortisol (the stress hormone). It includes a free trial of Hatch Sleep Membership, which gives you access to a growing library of content like meditations, sleep stories, soundscapes and more.

The device requires Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and can be controlled through an app on your phone, which means you can put the device away from your bed if you don’t have room on your nightstand.

With nearly 4,000 5-star reviews, the Hatch Restore has a total average rating of 4.4 stars out of 5. Customers say it helps them fall asleep quickly and is easy to use, with most reviews mentioning that the sunrise alarm is the best feature.

One reviewer who gave it 5 stars wrote that they love the simple design and that there are so many features rolled into one.

“Helped me sleep so much better on the very first night,” they wrote. “The sunrise alarm is such a peaceful way to wake up and the sounds included are exactly what I was looking for.”

Another 5-star review was written one week after purchasing the machine, with the customer saying they love it so far.

“Set up was really easy and intuitive from the app, I loved seeing all the things I could customize like light color, alarm sounds and my nighttime routine,” they wrote. “I’ve been waking up earlier with less snoozing since using this product because the light and alarm come on gradually to wake me up before my actual alarm goes off. I’m really looking forward to all the meditation and sleep story content next!”

Of course, not everyone loves the device, with some reviewers saying it simply didn’t help them sleep and a few complaints that it doesn’t work when not connected to Wi-Fi, which means the alarm may not go off if your internet goes out in the middle of the night.
