As we’ve mentioned before, your phone is a horrible alarm clock. Sure it wakes you up at a selected time (or 10), but it means your blue light-emitting phone is by your bed when you’re trying to doze off, and that means late night Instagram scrolling and browsing the new goods in the Cool Material Shop. The latter is a wise, wise move, but everything else is wrecking your sleep. That’s why we’re digging Circa. Circa is, at its most basic, an alarm clock. It looks sharp and will wake you up without your phone. But Circa is more than a simple alarm clock. It’s also a smart alarm that, with the help of a sleep sensor (select the correct model on Kickstarter), will gently wake you at the optimal time. It delivers insights on your sleep and coaches you to improve it. There’s a breathing assistant to help you catch some z’s, along with soothing sounds and white noise. It even connects with your smart home devices so you can shut off your lights without your phone. It’s easily the finest “alarm clock” we’ve ever come across.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
