SmarterTravel Pick of the Day: Lark Silent Alarm Clock

A super lightweight, stylish beach or pool cover-up dress.

What Is It: A wristband that monitors your sleep patterns (and comes with an app to analyze it) and can be used as a silent alarm clock.

Why It’s Smart:

• Wristband vibrates at the alarm time, even if your phone dies

• Access a personal online dashboard to see how well you slept

• Dynamic vibration wakes you up gently without disturbing anyone else

• Snooze feature and audio back-up on the alarm

• Small and easy to travel with

• Wristband is made from a comfortable, soft, and breathable fabric

Where to Buy: Available on Amazon.
